Only about a third of shots on target. Is this being presented as reasonable? What do they do in training? Some consolation I suppose that it's poor elsewhere too. This is Division 3 after all.

It’s of course not always easy to read the stats, given that on-target blocked shots are not counted as “on target“ unless they “ are blocked by the last man” ( ie:usually the goalie).

So your “ Division 3 after all” comment might reflect “packed defences & rearguard actions“ being more common in Div 3 than in the premier league, as well of course as obvious differences like striker quality.
eg: the Crewe match, when their defenders’ repeated stoppages were heroic as we peppered them in trying to find a way through.

I made the mistake of sitting behind the goal (the practise goal nearer the corner post) a few seasons ago at AFC Wimbledon....during Argyle's warm up....talk about living dangerously....during shooting practise it must of been the most dangerous place in South London.

More shots missed the target it seemed than were on target....there were footballs ricocheting around the terrace and slithers of broken seat plastic flying everwhere.....three or four seats were unusable after the shooting "practise" had finished.
