I felt like this is a good topic to discuss, after reading this analysis from skysports: https://www.skysports.com/football/...andre-schurrle-and-ruben-neves-buck-the-trend "The signs are that coaches and clubs are adapting their attitude towards long-range shooting. The change of focus is unmistakable when looking at the numbers. In the Premier League, the number of shots from outside the box has decreased in each of the past six seasons and the general downward trend dates back even further than that. Having taken more than 5000 shots from outside the box a decade ago, Premier League players fired off only 3693 shots last season. Clubs are shooting less in general but this trend is particularly pronounced when it comes to long shots. The proportion of shots from outside the box has steadily decreased too over the past decade." It's surprising stats to read. No wonder Pogba seems in a decline with his shooting ability, mainly because attacking opportunities are hard to come by and it's kind of wasteful when you shoot instead of a pass. What do you guys think? Is it better this way?
