AI Under Pressure Podcast – Subscriber Q&A

Gags Tandon welcomes back the Dan Kennett, Daniel Rhodes and Simon Brundish as the A-Team is reunited on this episode of AI Under Pressure! There is no Liverpool game to analyse this week so the lads are put to the test by AI:PRO subscribers who sent in their questions! They sent the following: Michael von Herff: Salah is a great signing, but do you think he can hit a curve? Bård Nikolas Vik Steen: Does Wijnaldum struggle in smaller games, if so, why? Is there any statistical evidence to support any conclusions? Bill Wilkens: Why are people talking about Matip like he is just as error-prone or bad as Lovren? Does my head in! Kev Hegarty: This may be a big undertaking but - following on from the last UP, do we have what the xG would be for our pressing this season? Tom McCool: Based on minutes on the pitch, who needs to be rotated for EPL games? Who starts v Newcastle with Porto then ManU? Leanne Prescott: in terms of stats you've produced post-match, which game this season has impressed/caught your eye the most? U.D. Vithlani: You have often talked about Klopp being a 2 point a match coach. That’s his level historically and what we are on this season. That won’t be enough for us to ever win the league. Klopp will also know he is 74 point manager. We all believe that Klopp is the right guy so what does Klopp have to do himself to get to 90 points and potential league title manager? Jeremy Fowke: Based on current and future expected loads, would you field a weaker side for the derby gams with UCL quarter final games 3-4 days either side? Nick Summerfield: In terms of decisions going against you, does it really even itself out over the season?
