- Last night revealed some worrying things
Zonal marking - really? We concede too many at corners and decide to change the system and everyone just stands in their zone and we look much weaker.
Glen rea - shocking on the ball and seems to have been told to get rid of it to the nearest man. Trouble is it seems he hasnít no decision making ability as he follows through even when itís 3v3 in our own half he will still pass to a man under pressure
Passing to players who are marked? Yeah everyone should be comfortable on the ball even when marked and you rarely get time and space but players looked as if they were trying to get rid of it for the sake of it even if it meant the player receiving the ball was almost certain to lose it as they were marked and not expecting it. It was like a game of hot potato - get rid of it as soon as regardless if it ####s the next person over.
Taking too long and slowing the game down - seems like a few players yesterday were grandstanding when receiving the ball and wanted to pose for pictures with it rather than get it higher up the pitch quicker. Or would run completely out of ideas and just stand still.
Scared to play forward and lose the ball - a few times yesterday we won the ball and got it to someone in a bit of space and they would run with it and then turn round and play it back the 20 yards or so they just gained?!? I presume they didnít want to play it forward as we might lose the ball....what happened we lost the ball in our half because they played it back.
Some of the football was really shocking and massive improvements needed. The balance in the team completely shifted if we donít have attacking wide players or players who are happy to run with it. If we donít have a LB who is willing to run up and down the pitch the whole team is lopsided and we basically lose 50% of our attacking threat which isnít great at the best of times.
Never mind Collins looking like he couldnít score from 5 yards out - or the lack of runs and attacking the ball when someone crosses or shoots?!? Someone should have attacked the ball and tapped in KDH shot in second half but everyone standing still watching it. Looks like his heads elewhere....
Need some new players ASAP - doughty bid accepted from stoke now, should have gone for shankland. Definitely should be looking at jephcott and watters.
