Re: 6 wins needed
It's ironic the results we've got against the top sides. Maybe our formation has benefited versus these types on the road. Has the loss of Niko and Karl undermined this going into these crunch games? Conjecture. No escaping the fact we have limitations. Width and creativity are my personal red flags through-out the season. Both attacking and defensively. I believe one hundred per cent we are capable of staying up. I want a star to emerge and take the game by the scruff of the neck. I look at the lad Ball in midfield. He's impressed. His movement around the edge of the box. We need a playmaker to prize open these tight defences. We need to improve all-round. Our retention, our delivery has been poor, our set-pieces telegraphed. For me, the past six months is water under the bridge - our season starts now. Is it possible to relish a relegation scrap? Yes it is.
I think if everybody is honest we have, regardless of all factors, let ourselves down a bit. Time to put things right.
