Jewell: Even the Best Have Lean Spells in Front of Goal
Saturday, 22nd Sep 2012 10:38
Town’s failure to take their chances in their last two games has been a big frustration for Blues boss Paul Jewell, but he says even top players have lean spells in front of goal.
Recalling his playing days at Anfield, he said: “You see goalscorers sometimes and they can’t buy a goal. Top, top strikers.
“I remember being an apprentice at Liverpool and Kenny Dalglish couldn’t score. I remember us doing a training session where we were squaring balls for Kenny to hit into an open net, and I’m talking about from seven yards. Out about 50 he hit around two in.
“It happens to the best in the world and once he got one in a game he went on.
"He was a fantastic player but that’s the situation for strikers, they go on runs. Something needs to fall for one of our strikers or one of our players and I feel the team will move on from there.
“It’s not going to just happen for us, we’ve got to make it happen and the way you make it happen is not to be frightened of getting in there.
"Don’t be frightened of missing. It’s not nice to miss, but if you don’t put yourself in positions to miss chances, you definitely won’t score them.”

A Reflection by paulthebluealien
I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.

Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
