I couldn’t get a decent enough stream to write a more informed article about the game, but that did have a bit of a bonus, in that the picture froze dozens of times, with the focus nearly always on our defence.
This gave me a chance to analyse things better, even though I don’t really analyse, but more just get a “feel” for the overall game, normally.
We mostly lined up with a back four, with two just in front and still weren’t picking up players!
Is it zonal? I’m not convinced, but christ, it really is poor. Opposition players were stood in between two defenders all the time, with what seemed no clue as for who was concentrating on who. This is basic stuff.
Until this is addressed, we’re always going to be in trouble.
We missed Vlaar in my opinion and anyone who thinks we don’t is deluded (oohaah, LOL)
Which reminds me, how on earth is he injured again, after a prolonged break?
What are we doing in training?
And how come we never get to hear about it until the line-up is produced?
This smells worse than a bag of rotten herrings to me, but there you go.
Maybe it’s just about not giving anything to the opposition manager, in fairness.
We seemed decent going forwards, but I’m not convinced that’s saying much, given that Arsenal are almost as poor as us at the back.
Hence I’m somewhat disappointed today, as I thought Arsenal were there for the taking and predicted a win.
So no surprise that this one’s a bit downbeat then.
Apologies for that, but it’s all about the points and we failed to get any.
It appears we’re back in the relegation zone again… sigh.
Man City next up and I’ll be there.
I think we can do them, but we’ll see.
