Model Behaviour: Converting shots into goals

Great to see that you are back!

Morning Chris!

Some comments:
1. With OPTA now incorporating Expected Goals into their stats displayed on TV, surely it'll become a common topic of conversation eventually... Do you have plans on incorporating those or at least estimating causality/projections? I'd love to see what your models can come up with, especially with the latest visualisation techniques you're using

2. I'd suggest that you take a punt at developing alternative shot profiles. Inside/outside the box shots are a fantastic start, but should the 18 yard line really be the chief metric?
