112 long balls in Town's last game more than any other game so far by a distance. We had 66% possession and made 572 attempted passes so the extra long balls partly reflect the fact that we just had the ball more. People were saying they thought we'd been playing more long balls recently so I looked up the stats on Sofascore.

The number of long passes that TOWN HAVE MADE in each game we have played are:

Morecambe 68
Bradford 72
FGR 69
Colchester 79
Port Vale 91
Walsall 75
Crewe 76
Oldham 88
Salford 112

If someone who had no knowledge of football (i.e. no prejudices) were to look at that and the League table they wouldn't be able to make the connection that 'more long balls = less success'. Or the reverse.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Do you know what the success percentage was Rob.

Like 30% found Hanson's head ?

Doh! I read it as what the other teams did.  

Anyway, the point stands. You can draw absolutely no conclusions from those stats against the results of the games.
