If you don't have real quality in your flanks, you will get hurt by the teams playing counter attacks. We've been exposed there for quite some time now and these have drilled in low crosses all day long. I mean, as a winger if you can't rely on the guy behind you getting at least something done on their own, what can you do? If you drop deeper to help them, you're never getting anything done attacking wise and if you don't you're been blamed for not back tracking.
We opened up and that's like inviting these for a nice dinner.
