About our players. It’s the self-admonishment the follows every over hit pass, every mistimed tackle, poor touch, dragged shot. As if they normally offer such a consistent level of performance, and their their typically high expectations are unmet on this rare occasion. A tut and a head shake in the direction of a teammate, with absolutely no hint of irony that their own contributions are themselves substandard on a consistent basis. The absolute nerve of Jackson to lament a heavy touch like it’s completely out of character.
It’s that underlying arrogance that we should somehow be ‘winning games like this easily’, when its underpinned by absolutely no foundations or demonstrable evidence of being capable of doing so.
