Our free kick was a worldy. Their one was pretty crappy looking. Keeper never moved a muscle. Their other goals look like further defensive lapses from regular crosses. It seems we're just too easy to score against. The opposition probably thinks, Ok it's only Hendon today, they'll huff and puff but sooner or later we'll breake'm down and they're right, they normally do. The players seem to just lack concentration at crucial moments. They have as much skill and tenacity as other teams in the Ryman but for some reason they cannot defend as a unit for a certain period of time.

I guess this is where pros have the edge over amateurs. They can be mentally more stable and concentrated whilst teams at this level can be defensively fragile. Maybe we need a pure defensive coach to drill the back four into defending as a unit who knows. Like a game in the school playground. No one seems to really care about "defending" shape and that line of thinking. Maybe it comes from the management and I don't know if they need to accept more of the blame for this lack of concentration when leading teams.

It's pretty pointless over analysing but when you look at the season as a whole, time after time you can see that the team is not defending as a unit and not concentrated on being solid and hard to beat. Maybe you Hendon fans want a more glorious form of football to enjoy but any team at this level in my opinion needs a solid spine from which to build and Hendon have sorely lacked that this season.
