Recent PL games have been so bloody frustrating. And again today.
We should NOT be loosing that game, masses of possession, but back to the old bus parking problem, we can't break the f**king thing down. F***ing Utd and Chavs played the same game against us, sat back, in their home game, and played us on the break. They know what to expect from us - should we not be expecting this from them and having SOME decent counter?!?!
Completely agree that the lads are wrecked, the CL is taking it out of them - some poor passing out there - found it hard to come up with a MOTM for the vote (went with VVD). It's the same 11 of so guys we're depending on week in week out, and that is f**king unbelievable for a club who wants to challenge. The bench is not good enough - and Jürgen know it - is why he hardly ever brings anyone on. Needs more bodies in summer.
In saying that, Solanke - who imho is nowhere near up to playing at this level - had a couple of headed chances, possibly the best 'chances' we managed to make in the 2nd half ?! - which says it all really.
BUT why not stick Virgil up there instead of bringing on Solanke - he has better control and is a better header of the ball - he is guaranteed to win balls in the air - Maureen plays land-of-the-giants stuff all the time - could we not give it a shot when all f**king else is failing.
If not that, something !!! Dominic Solanke is close to not being something.
Must have spent 30 mins of that 2nd half passing it around in front of the Chavs defense.
But not unused to seeing that in the PL.
In CL, playing teams who actually want to play - and we make the most of it.
Jürgen still needs to find a way to beat teams who don't want to play football.
Need to beat f**king Brighton.
