Nah, not having any of that. Some of it is true AFTER we conceded the first goal due to an individual error. But before that, they hadn't even come close to creating a dangerous situation and it was working fine.
Fair enough mate. I think you're dead wrong but we'll have to agree to disagree.
I agree we were containing them before the goal but I'm not sure that constitutes working fine. We wouldn't have scored in a month of Sundays with that shape because we insisted on making the pitch smaller.
I also disagree that some of it was only true after the goal. Ben Davies was stationed outside our penalty area from minute one, and Gueye was running around like a fool for his entire time on the pitch. Likewise Schniederlin and Barry were duplicating each other's role before the goal.
In fact I could go as far to attribute the goal to the confusion amongst the midfield as to who had which role and how to press the ball (before Joel fucks it).
For me, the implication of what you are saying is 'it could have been different but for conceding the first goal' which I have down as quite a banal observation but also a rather large hypothetical.
If (nearly) every player plays badly as they did today it can usually be put down to poor tactics.
