Just got out the ground, Gona take me a while to digest. I called both there goals. Said our concentration would be fucked after coming out for second half with a free kick given away so early. Then for other free kick where they scored colback off fornah on instead of Taylor for added height at the back to defend the free kick and something for us to try and latch onto at the other end because yet again the long ball was to no one as we don't have anyone in the final 3rd who can win a ball.
Only decent thing from the game was zinckernagel and that's only because he hasn't been 'forested' yet and drained of all his ability. So now we have Gabriel suspended and tutu injured so there's 2 more fullbacks out.
He insisted on keeping colback on even though he was on a yellow for majority of second half and was suffering from injury
And don't get me started on figs. What the fuck is that as a footballer.
You could see exactly what we needed last night when that Jack rothwell ( centre mid for them) coasted between 3 of our players and pulled it back for what should have been 1-0 but samba made a good save. Will you ever see that from colback or Yates? Will you fuck! You won't win games of football enough to stay up if you don't have central midfielders that can do that. They can only do one thing- when the ball comes to them give it to someone backwards or sideways with more time. Your central midfielders need to provide a number of roles. And they aren't even any good at shielding our back 4!! We've lost all league games 2-1 and that's with 2 defensive mids! Christ. They don't cut out passing lanes, they rarely put a foot in winning it back and actually get something creative going with it they just shuffle about and get dragged all over the pitch and get ran past.
And everyone chanting for carvalho.. I get what you want, you want our creative ayers to play some nice football, ones that are on the same wavelength but we have very little who are- zinckernagel, carvalho? Johnson and mighten at a push? No point in us all singing for carvalho on when the system doesn't change and the ball just bypasses him and goes over grabbans heads or Yates and colback pass the ball to figs and McKenna everytime they get it then figs wallops it down the pitch. This manager hasn't got a system to utilise anyone who can play football. Carvalho is wasted, zinckernagel will soon go missing and be wasted. Blackburn played some attractive passing football last night, who'd of thought would be envious of having tony mowbray.
I watched Huddersfield and Preston the other night and they looked exactly like us, utter shite, no plan, no idea, scared to do anything. Guarantee we will make them look like they can play football though.
