All about the first 5 minutes. 

They will see this as very winnable and will have a high pressing game right from the kick off, looking for nervousness and mistakes.

New coaching set up with a week to work with the players this is the turning point.

 

Get a grip! It’s not about the first five minutes, it’s the 90th minute onwards that’s the problem

Fun Barnsley fact.

Ex City Left Back, Darren Barnard (great player for us), who went on to join Barnsley in the Premier League for £750000 missed several games in the 97-98 season for them because of a leg injury.

What caused the injury? He came downstairs one morning and into his kitchen and slipped on a puddle of dogs piss his dog had very kindly left as a surprise on the kitchen floor.

🤣

There are no very poor dudes in the Championship.  All have good enough players on their day to help their side get a result.

We will perform if we can impose our strengths on them and expose their weaknesses….they will be trying to to the reverse.

We aren’t a bad side, but today of all days we need to play like a team who are comfortable in what they are trying to achieve.

My old manager at Brislington used to say that you set the tone in the first 5 minutes.  Win your first header, your first tackle, get your first pass off, etc, set the energy, let your opponent know you’re up for it.

No easy games, but also games are not so hard that these players can't do better than they are.

Time to go for it today , start quick and move the ball at pace go all out to get first goal and if it comes keep going . Do not drop deep . Bentley it’s your job to keep our defence out of the box and break up play early .

Wouldn't surprise me if Dodgy Bentley flaps one in his own onion bag a la David James..

I can forgive the lack of a victory today but another poor performance is inexcusable. However, I genuinely believe that I'll be walking out of the ground today feeling very pleased  for the first time in what seems like forever.

If you were Barnsley looking to end a wretched run you’d be confident of doing it against a team who have not won at home in 600 days and cant defend for toffee.

Eqaully, there’s no better team than Barnsley to face if you want to get back to winning ways. 

Draw it is then.
