I have a slightly different take on this period. I don't think the lads and the management have warranted stick. I don't think we have found our footing. All the bloody self examination in the world will not compensate for distilling things down to its most simplistic level. Their numbers 7 and 11 took us to the cleaners fist half. Effectively adopting a four up-front. Powerful and sublime. Interesting style and unit. We clearly countered that second half and had we had a commanding midfield we could have won. The goal conceded was pathetic (again).
Worryingly, the second half, as pleasing as it was, may not work against other workmanlike oppositions. I welcomed a top side visiting, it's the lower sides we struggle against. It's how we incorporate what we have to dominate the grafters. Identifying these areas will consolidate our work-rate. No clean sheet in the league tells it's own story.
But for today, impressive tactical reaction, and great team work ethic. Don't beat yourselves up!
