Re: Awful again
A very fair summary by Paul.
Once we missed those early chances, the writing was on the wall.
The 3-5-2 formation worked in so much as we were able to field three decent offensive players without asking one of them to play too wide and all three posed an attacking threat first half. Credit to Sulamain for his willingness to attack from right wing back but he struggled late on in the 4-4-2, probably due to fitness.
Both keepers made decent saves but their bloke saving the penalty and bravely blocking Leon 2nd half were the pick. Their defender's goal-line clearance 1st half from Aaron was exceptional....as he'd picked his spot right in the corner.
Their (Romanian?) 4 dog, is a decent centre-half but is a master of the dark arts. When he's about to get done for pace he knows how to run across the path of the attacker and is always pulling shirts. He also enjoys the sly nibbles (think Aaron in the first match) and he was at it again last night. Nothing too much but just enough to make a difference. I like his ability, I like his cleverness but I don't like him.
I know they were complaining about some of Dave's fouls but there was no need for their bloke to have a sly dig at him in the last minute when the game was won.
Last night was a clear example of how much the loss of the Maclarens and Elliot Braithwaite has hurt us. Our midfield can't dominate and our back-line looks vulnerable. I know our strikers aren't firing either but IF we can get Andre fit and playing regularly, then I'm sure that will be the spark we need to get things going up front.
Oh well....let's hope that Sunday brings a change of fortune. Any sort of win would give everyone a big boost. Boy, do we need one.
