What was most annoying for me is that they seemed to want it more. Stoke were first to every loose ball (including the one from the corner that they scored from) and this is something we have done poorly for years.
It may have seemed so but again that isn't true. We won our fair share of second balls.
The corner had nothing to do with wanting it more either: annoyingly it's something they had practised and we failed to pick up. They clearly analysed the way we defend corners and based on how we usually clear them (poorly), placed Whitehead strategically in the position the ball was most likely to end up.
