Backing Off

Post  bluenoseghag on Sun Nov 25, 2012 12:27 pm

Why do we do it? Ravel and Mullins BOTH keep doing it, as does Caldwell when faced with anyone who can outpace him; which is basically everyone. Derby's third goal today was an embarassment, we just stood on the edge of the penalty box and let them approach and play it around us without even offering a bit of pressure, let alone a challenge

This approach is why we are conceding so many goals, we need people who have the strength, energy, and more importantly commitment and responsibility to close players down because we are conceding easy goals at the moment. We did it last year, but last year we were defensively organised enough to stop teams playing through us,

We have the ability to score 2 goals in every game, just we cannot defend. It may be entertaining but it's entertaining out of recklessness rather than out of ability, because our defending today was quite frankly pitiful

Poor midfield, poor Defence and shit manager just about sums us up at the moment.

At last other people are saying what I've been saying for weeks now. Indeed on two other posts this morning. Why is he playing Mullins in midfield, when he bought in a proven midfield spoiler in Papa Diop.? Why not bring him on to give our makeshift defence some protection. They get very little, from Mullins.

It's obvious our makeshift defence needs more protection.

I said it a millions times. I'm sick of watching players back out of tackles, two in-particular.
