I know results are the name of the game and at the moment things are not going too bad for us, but how long will our luck hold out.
Apart from one game this season – when we were absolutely awful throughout the match – every single game has seen us play well and dominate in one half and totally outplayed and dominated in the other. If we could put 75 – 90 minutes together in a match we could be unbeatable. However, only doing it for 45 minutes a time we will get our come-uppance. We were lucky to get away with wins at Man U and Southampton, and even at Reading we struggled.
AVB did his ‘daft’ tactic again at Southampton of taking off our only striker and putting on a midfielder with 15 – 20 mins to go hoping to hold on to a victory, and once again we nearly let in a last minute equaliser – as we have on other occasions already this season.
I am very concerned about our One-Half performances, i just hope we can put that right quickly, otherwise we will find things tough in the coming months.
