For me, the negativity is obvious. Moyes' mould is firstly of containment, then see what transpires. Newcastle played Carroll & Arfa (and they're away). David Moyes chooses one striker (and he's at home). We pass, we move, (like every team) we try to play football. Playing football isn't quantum physics - it's simple.
Moyes plan goes awry, we're 0-1 down, Davie now knows a jugular response is required so he brings out his dead. Coleman to add urgency & drive, the Yak to be predatory.
Nothing wrong with that, you might say - I say, why not show a real winning desire from the onset.
It's consistantly negative & counter-productive to pull fire out of the ashes most weeks. Surely Moyes must be aware that his balls are on the line too much. Trying a comeback against Blackburn. Failing to put Wolves to bed. Trying a comeback against Villa. Drawing against Man Utd by the skin of their teeth. Needing another comeback against Newcastle but failing.
The pattern is frighteningly obvious.
