It had to happen eventually, and tonight it happened. We lost having been ahead and being the most dominant team. The Previous two games should have gained us 6 points, we got 2, tonight 0, and those lost points really hurt. On Saturday against a very poor Blackburn side, down to 10 men, why did we not go for more goals and put them on the back foot? then tonight's result wouldn't have hurt so much? Huddersfield on Saturday, it must be 3 points to keep us up in the groove, a much better season but much more to improve?
What a laugh this is? Grass roots to the National team? No chance, our Premiership teams fueled with money from an Aussie (Sky) and backed by various, sometimes dubious 'Money men' have taken over our national game. UK players, let alone English players have to play second fiddle now. Let's hope Liverpool, with the help of Southampton win The Prem, they at least have English players and a very good British Manager.
Forget this joke of a transfer window...Man U trying to sign a team, not create a team etc. Why don't we go back to grass roots...get Class One Academy as a priority. I sit in The Coop Stand and overheard two of the guys sitting above me saying there boys were going to the Norwich Academy...Colney so much better than Playford Road, that hurts. I would rather us put money into our youth, get the best coaches to teach them, trust MM to keep us in with a good position in The Championship and then reap the rewards in the future.
Surely the back four can man mark two front runners with full backs covering? if not then they must step up their game and allow the midfield to concentrate on winning their own battles and supplying the attackers, who at the moment are feeding off scraps. Time to get on the front foot for the sake of the team and supporters.
We have a solid hard working honest side that now needs that man in the middle that demands the ball and is annoyed if he is not given it. A Captain that is not played out of position to demand more from his troops as he get roasted by the opposition. 3-5-2 has got to be the answer, but who is the one demanding the ball? McGoldrick as that man. Just a thought?
