Other teams will look at our zonal marking and be delighted with getting a corner.
A bit Pienaar like. He didn't get on the ball a tremendous amount so I think we'll get a better sense next few games.
In what way did he seem like Pienaar?
Yeah the game was turning as soon as we scored our second. They suddenly went far more attacking and we were clearly not handling the pressure well. It's mad that Silva didn't think to make a change. Not saying you need to go all defensive, that's not his style, but clearly we were tiring and some fresh legs, particularly in the middle of the park, would've worked wonders.
We've had a soft underbelly and mental weakness as a club for a long time now. It's massively frustrating. We'll never push for Top 6 unless we can close a fucking game out.
There will be inevitable lazy comparisons to Martinez but theyíre probably fair under the circumstances. 5 conceded in 3 games against average opposition; shocking defending from corners and today the inability to make substitutions when they were badly needed to see the game out professionally. Still early days but old habits die hard it seems.
