It's better than 2 defeats. Granted it's not exactly hardon material.
According to some we're on the up. Wow.
Crap game all round, only real positive was that we kept a clean sheet but even that was due to Adebayor's piss poor finishing. Can see Southampton giving us a beating on Saturday, not even contemplating what the Shite will do to us a week today
This is also against a team that have lost more games at home than we have. Take that in, more than our 8 losses. 2 more, in fact.
The real stat is that we have won 3 of our last 19 league matches.We have drawn 8 and lost 8.Wins in cup games have glossed over this startling fact - we are Wigan.
Sometimes you have to stop the rot first. Then make moves in the right direction. I think a lot of people at the moment, because they want RM out, are looking for negative after negative. I only saw bits of the game because my stream was shit but I think there are signs that there is a bit of fight and a willingness from the players to do something about it. I've been in these situations and after a set run you take any positives and build on them.
I can only assume we either arent fit enough to do it. Or he doesnt want the likes of Barkley and Lukaku doing it as he wants them to conserve energy for when they get the ball, and rather have mccarthy or barry win it back and release the forward players. Or he is asking them to do it and Barkley/Lukaku etc dont have the desire to do it and carry out his instructions.Cant think of any other reason why do it so infrequently. I saw a graph the other week and we are down the bottom with newcastle and sunderland for least amount of pressing per game in the league. If they arent fit enough it thats ridiculous, if its because he wants to conserve energy i understand the idea but as shown by the top teams around at the moment they all press and dont leave individuals out of it. And if it's the final one then it's poor management to let them get away with it.Whatever it is, not really good enough!
And they've still got more points than us at home!
10 men for nearly half a game, it's hardly surprising.
"2nd Yellow was very harsh" apparently?What about the other 2 challenges before that he could (and probably should) have walked for Bobby?More phenomenal excuses
Seems to me like it does from some of the arguments being put forward on other threads.
