Notwithstanding all that, in the current wind conditions, I don't think we have helped ourselves in certain passages of play. Again, particularly at home. I think we play deeper than many of our contemporaries and I feel we have an overall reluctance to play out from the back - a hallmark of most of the top sides. Ironically, when fit, I think we have the players to do this more than effectively. Tommy Brewer is built for the job. I tried to rally around Luke Tingey, when James was boss, more in hope than expectation. So I think we have yet to form a solid identity. A lot of this may of course be resolved. I thnk for now considerations have to be made.
The first Dorch goal Saturday - I wanted to combust - and would still have done so had we won. Everybody talking about the cross, stopping the cross, the keeper, the back - I go back to the very start of the move. We lost the ariel confrontation from our goal kick. We have no target man to win flick ons. Even Joe, when present, has to drop back, Connor Cullen style to flick on to nobody in particular. I have stressed a need for a Lee O'Leary type in the middle of whom can challenge and win a fair percentage - Goal kicks Saturday, trying to locate wide players, going out of touch is as bad. We are just handing possession back to the opposition.
