Glossary

The shot locations are based on my Shot Matrix shot locations, the map is displayed to the right. Penalties are not included in shots.

Shot_matrix4DZS: Shots from the danger zone, which is zones 1-3, the close and central areas of the box.

WS: Shots from the wide areas of the 18-yard-box, zones 4-5.

SoB: Shots from outside the 18-yard-box, zones 6-8.

%Cross: Percentage of shots from the danger zone assisted by crosses.

%TB: Percentage of shots from zones 1-5 assisted by through-balls.

%Fast: Percentage of open-play shots produced from fast attacking moves (>5 yd/s).

%Med: Percentage of open-play shots produced from medium-speed moves (1-5 yd/s).

%Slow: Percentage of open-play shots produced from slow attacking moves (>1 yd/s).

TSR: Total Shots Ratio, ratio of shots taken to shots allowed.

DZR: Danger Zone Ratio, ratio of shots taken from the Danger Zone to shots allowed from the danger zone.

DZR N/C: Danger Zone Ratio, but with shots assisted by crosses removed.

xG: Expected goals scored or conceded based on shot type, assist type and shot location, speed of attack and a few more factors. For the explanation of the components of xG, see my full open-method expected goals methodology.

A disclaimer on xG: These are not meant to be definitive. I have published the component numbers precisely so that you can make your own judgments. The game of football is irreducibly complex, and I do not mean to suggest I have finally reduced it to a single number. But I think xG, even if this simple form, remains a useful and interesting figure. I will be working to improve my xG statistics (in a fully open way) over the next several months.

xGR: Expected Goals Ratio, ratio of expected goals scored to expected goals allowed.

SoS: Strength of schedule based on my Premier League projections. This is the expected xGR of a hypothetical league average team which faced the same opponents with the same home/road split.

Adj xGR: xGR adjusted for strength of schedule. Calculated simply as (xGR / (SoS / 0.5)).
