Work rate💪


Recommended Posts

Strange game yesterday, overwhelmed first half,on another day could of been 3 or 4 down by half time.

Great decision subbing Ryley off as a red was coming for the next tackle.

Half time change of formation and confidence boost with the realisation it was still 0 0.

Great second half 8 8 in shots on goal, outran and outfought a very good side.

Key to success yesterday was the work rate every player bust a gut yesterday, first half possession was poor but we chased and ran like I've not seen in a long time. Jack Hunts effort to stay with his marker perfect example.

Second half boy did Wells and Fam put in a shift ran and chased everything. Nagy is a machine too.

Vyner second half looked like a young Veira ,everywhere and the ball for the goal was sublime.

There will be some tired legs this morning but I bet they can't wait to get into training.

Last point most difficult position on pitch is the keeper no room for error at any time.We have a quality keeper who made some fantastic saves yesterday to keep us in the game, I hope we go up soon or Bents will be off for a tidy sum.

Get that recovery in boys.

Was fantastic defending by Hunt that. And he was so much better than many games since his good bit of form earlier in the season.

Our effort was “smarter” second half, backed up by a system that suited us in thwarting Swansea.

How many times have opposition teams stopped us playing out to our WBs in space?  Boro (h) and Millwall (h) were a classic example of that, making us play through our 3 CBs...and then swarm you as you approach the halfway line.  Couple that with a midfield who are lacking confidence to receive the pass with a man-on and it’s hardly surprising that we end up booting it down the pitch, turn over possession and then spend ages trying to get it back.

So, we did that to Swansea second half because we were unable to impose our 352 on theirs first half.

Wells took care of Roberts, Palmer likewise with Bidwell.  Fam didn’t need to do a lot, just ensure that Cabango didn’t come through the middle.  Then when Guehi and Latibeaudiere got it, either Nagy, Bakinson or Vyner waited for them to play it into Grimes or Hourihane.  Occasionally Grimes or Hourihane got it just inside their own half and were able to turn and get their heads up, but mostly it resulted in going back to the CBs to “start again”.  They were nowhere near as dominant.  Their 500+ passes were split 61% / 39% 1st Hal to 2nd half.  They made twice as many long passes 2nd half, at 50% of the success rate of 1st half.

What else did this give us?

Less wasted energy, we will still able to press late on, because we were structured in the way shaped up, less distances to cover.

Big tick ✅ for Big Nige!

In last few years, tactical and personnel changes have sometimes felt a bit 'may as well try this'. This one felt a lot more considered and purposeful. (and, we ended up winning... which helps). 

Postive signs. NP does feel like a really good fit for this club at this time. Hope everyone on here remembers the good vibes when the inevitable difficult spell hits.
