After our recent poor showings, I’m hedging my bets here.
It seems everyone has sussed we don’t like to be pressed and harried. Just like we do to teams, and for the bus Parker’s, we’ve gone backwards regards breaking them down. Or high line gets higher as the centre backs push up to try and influence the play. That’s when we are vulnerable to a pacy counter.
Yeah Joes quick, and VVD is no slouch, but when someone has a five yard start on you because you pushed up just a bit too far, and our poor passing gives the ball away.
Hey, I try to be a glass half full type, but it seems we’re not learning from our mistakes. We need to be patient, and if there’s no room behind the 10 man wall to get the wing backs into, we need to cut through the middle, but our one touch, on the move passing has to improve.
Hoping Anfield will make the difference and praying for a 3-0 win. Anything that gets 3 points will do, but an impressive score will build a bit of confidence for Wednesday.
By no means a formality this, we need to respect these and up our concentration.
Now we know we are beatable, we just need a huge reaction tomorrow.
Underestimate these at our peril !
We go a goal down and it will feel like our world has collapsed.
