Our defence is so slow and leggy that it'd be suicidal to push up. So then we have to defend deeper, which results in us losing the battle for possession and territory. Then we don't have a playmaking midfielder who can run things in the middle, so the midfield ends up being a bit chaotic and backs to the wall.You’ve changed your tune. Called this ages ago and you slaughtered me, said I was a miserable sod cos you still had designs on challenging the top 6.
And then we don't have speed merchants like Zaha to be really good on the break.
The more I look at it, the more I wonder how you can set this group of players up to play effectively for a run of games.
But I forgive you.
