Please someone beat your man. Not with a stick.

Recommended Posts

Can't believe our inability to go past anyone yesterday. The first ten minutes we ran at players and committed them and created numerous half chances. After that spell nothing until eliasson  crossed for goal.

If teams are playing 5 at the back crossing from distance is heading or catching practice. Players need to break the line turn them round and disrupt their shape. 

Couldn't understand why eliasson didn't just stay wide and deliver his crosses. He played inside a lot for some reason.

We lack players who can beat a man so don't get why against a 5 man defence he wouldn't start.

First game I have watched this season against a lower team but if that was a normal plan of attack could see why we struggle.

Seems strange with such an innovative coach our main attacking strategy is to hit diagonal hopeful balls into the box.

On a positive can't believe what an amazing stadium we have and thought for a 12 kick off the atmosphere was excellent. We have a good manager and are position is well above the money we spend. Think he may go in the summer if he does not get the players he wants.

From the first few minutes it was obvious that Jack Hunt was never going to go past their left back Blackett. Then as you say this led to crosses being played in diagonally and not being pulled back for the striker to run in to.

Unfortunately though the standard of balls into the box from a professional right back was truly shocking yesterday. Jack Hunt had probably 6 or 7 opportunities and consistently failed, a right back he may be but a right wing back he isn't.
