I've got no problems with gaining yellow cards if it helps the greater cause. Think Lincoln under the Cowley brothers.

I've got no issue with having less possession. Leicester won the prem with an average of 40% - ours is still higher than that. Its what you do without the ball as much as what you do with the ball that counts, its a pointless stat in my opinion.

Likewise, shots on target, off target etc. A team can have a policy of taking pot shots from all over the place, their stats will look good, conversions less so. Etc.

The stat I saw that is relevant was the one where the chron says we've been in the lead during matches, considerably more than any other team in the division. Swindon were 2nd in that table, and literally miles behind.

The issue we have is clearly towards the end of matches.

Forget sacking Curle to rectify it. What we need is a new manager to take over after 70 minutes. His title could be 'Director of Substitutions and Game Management'. Curle can bugger off and sit in the stand at that point each game.
