TIA New Signing
- Jul 4, 2009
Gini didnt have the best game neither did hendo or milly. I would have started hendo gini and fabinho. Love hendo but he jus slows the game down and plays it safe most times.First half was dire to watch after a good 10 minutes stint that saw the ref failed to give them a red card and us a penalty for that Ederson tackle on Mane's shot. After that we were quite shit. Someone told me Wijnaldum shielding the ball better, and I don't know what was it for. To then pass the ball back to City players. Our midfield of this three should stop to exist. I know I wanted a more defensive midfield, but this isn't a more defensive one, but lack of direction ones. Fabinho would have suited better and it shows in the second half.
We tried, we seemed to have a bit of complex in our game. We seemed to be a bit afraid of them, showing them too much respect. That's not the players alone, but the manager too. Playing 4-3-3 didn't help us at all and second half after Fabinho came on we made more grounds on them. Now Fabinho not only able to shield @jabu, but able to take the ball up and find a pass. Something Wijnladum failed to do.
We need to stop this, this has to be an exception to our run. We have to win the next league match. Forget Wolves FA Cup tie. Just focus on our next 17 matches and win them all. Cannot afford to take our foot off the gas at all in this league run. Unlucky, lack of effort by the midfield in the first half and needed more clinical finishing from our side.
