Dallas, TX - FC Dallas fan Virginia Reynolds admitted that Expected Goals did not tell her anything about FC Dallas and their week two result against Sporting Kansas City.
"I looked at the numbers, and they seem like a reflexive arbitrary set of data points that don't really reflect anything that would really concern me long term," stated Reynolds to The Nutmeg News.
"At first, I was afraid that I was missing some grand metric that would illuminate what the team is doing, but then I realized that expected goals adds absolutely nothing to my life or my enjoyment of the team. Expected goals, for me, shows nothing other than the metric that it is and even that isn't something that is vitally important to the understanding of the game of soccer. I've gotten a very zen approach, now, to expected goals in that I know it will show up full of fury, signifying nothing."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Reynolds attempts to understand how expected goals will tell her, in conjunction with the Audi Player Index, how FC Dallas are going to play against Pachuca.
