PATHETIC - EARLY GOALS
I do not need to highlight the recent run of games where we have had disastrous and as the title states ' pathetic' starts to matches.
Without delving too deep (will leave that to the Stato's amongst you) but our last SIX games have seen us fall behind early. Last weekend saw us two goals down against struggling WBA, and as we know it got worse as we conceded a third in the first half.
Thankfully they stopped playing once they had the lead. We saw Sunderland take the lead at WHL, we saw a 1st minute Liverpool goal quickly followed by more, Southampton scored two early goals at WHL prior to that. When we needed a quick start away to Benfica, we conceded early and yes, the week before we conceded another 1st minute goal at WHL to the Goons.
I think my point is, we are not learning from our mistakes. We are not going onto the pitch with the right mentality and the right message. We need to be more aggressive from the first minute and stop making every match difficult and having to chase the games.
The good teams (as we have seen) will not let us back into games and the others - well, we all know that we have players to cause teams problems. Surely Tim, the coaching staff & the players must learn, but after six games in a row it seems not.
I`m taking my boy to the match on Saturday and may close my eyes for the first few minutes. Tim & the players - six games in a row is a major embarrassment. Please sort your attitude out from minute one & please get things right BEFORE Kick Off. COYS
