    The Chase

    Inane trivia, but they are filmed in adjacent studios. I went to watch Pointless get filmed a couple of years ago and was more surprised than I probably should have been when I saw that The Chase was getting shot a few yards down the corridor.

    And that's the season over. Cheers Villa.

    It was pretty good. I'd been up before too. I think the main things you need to know is that you have to queue to get in, it can be 15-20 minutes if it's busy (ie sunset) and they have airport style x-rays, you have to put your bag through the scanner and walk through a metal detector. You can take a tripod in but they won't let you use it. They don't appear to give a shit about Gorillapod style things or light modifiers. There is a balcony overlooking the river, you can see south, east and west from there. There are east and west facing windows too so you get good views of Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and St Paul's. You can see Wembley stadium on a clear day. The view north is crap as all the lines of sight are obscured by the Gherkin. You can get a beer and some food up there if you want.

    Nah. You are getting xG confused with G. xG is an interesting metric but it's deeply flawed, Burnley are a perfect example of it's shortcomings. I get the desire to measure everything and it's definitely helped improve the quality of the game but it does encourage a culture where puddle deep knowledge will do because quoting stats trumps all. They should be a starting point for a deeper discussion rather than the end point. This isn't a personal attack or anything, it's just a general observation about football coverage in general.

    If expected goals conceded are 0.16 then they are quids in.

    I withdraw my previous statement. As for some actual reflection on the game, I'm still not sure what to make of it. Villa are a ridiculous team this season, this was our second 3-3 draw of the season, we've also had a 5-5 draw (vs Forest) and half a dozen 2-2 games. We definitely draw too much which is the main cause of our lowly position in the table. Weirdly I can kinda come out of the game feeling a bit hard done by in certain regards, we didn't lay a glove on Sheffield United until we scored really, there was one free kick which was comfortably saved in the first 75 minutes but we did have periods where we dominated possession and territory. Their second goal shouldn't have counted, Billy Sharp was offside and he kicked the ball out of our keepers hands, the reaction to that was poor from the team as they spend the next ten minutes sulking about it and conceded again. The fightback was definitely aided by their keeper who had a bit of a shocker but we capitalised on that which is very unlike Villa. There should have been a penalty at 2-3, I guess Mings used up all his luck with referees for the rest of his life at Reading last week and the equaliser makes the point moot but still, it's a draw that feels like a win and hopefully that will spur us on as we've got some big games coming up.

    This is beyond awful from Villa. Third 0-3 defeat in a month.

    We've signed a deal. It's not like returning a shirt that doesn't fit.

    I think Smith has got to back him as his manager. We can't send him back just because it doesn't sit right. Personally I think he meant to do it and I'd not be against him getting banned but it's difficult to prove I guess.

    Crouch still looks pretty good for 38. I think I preferred 90s football when older footballers looked bloody ancient. Alan Cork always springs to mind. I think he's basically the same age in this photo as Cristiano Ronaldo is right now.

    I hope he has to wear the 2023 shirt during matches. In other transfer news Aston Villa are looking to sign injury's Tyrone Mings from the Bournemouth physio room.

    Probably an hour's walk... by Nayson, on Flickr Sky Garden a couple of days ago, when it was absolutely pissing it down. Surprised how well it turned out considering the light was so crap. Handheld 100mm APS-C, ten minutes before sunset, through a window. Horizontal rain probably helps mask a bit of the noise in the photo I guess.

    It's just me I think. I've found the focal length to be neither fish nor fowl, I prefer the 27mm pancake FOV at the moment.

    I've got the 16mm f/1.4 prime. It's superb. The 56 is my favourite Fuji lens I think. I'm trying to get on with the 35mm f/2 but it just hasn't clicked with me yet. It's good for shots of the kids as it focuses so quickly.
