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.

DZSoT: Shots on target from the danger zone (1-3).

WSoT: Shots on target from the wide areas of the 18-yard box (4-5).

SoBoT: Shots from outside the box on target (6-8).

%DZ: Percentage of shots taken from the danger zone.

%SiB: Percentage of shots taken from inside the 18-yard box.

G/WS: Goals scored per shot taken from wide areas of the 18-yard box.

xG: Expected goals scored based on shot type, assist type and shot location. For the explanation of the components of xG, see my first three shot matrix articles: Shot Matrix I, Shot Matrix II, Shot Matrix III.

A disclaimer on xG: These are not meant to be definitive. I have published the component numbers in shots, shot type, shots on target and goals 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.

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

SiBR: Shots inside the Box Ratio, ratio of shots taken from inside the box to shots allowed from inside the box.

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

SoTR: Shots on Target Ratio, ratio of shots on target taken to shots on target allowed.

DZoTR: Danger Zone Shot on Target Ratio, ratio of shots on target taken from the Danger Zone to shots on target allowed from the danger zone.
