Warnock highlighted the lack of leaders at the club and it showed badly today. They changed shape with 5 mins to go and we panicked and kept giving them back the ball. Yes, the quality in the final 3rd was bad (awful) but we are a team scrapping around in the bottom half, so I don’t expect a lot. Another day something bobbles about a bit and we sneak a winner. We were marginally the better team today and lost. Sometimes that happens, but at least we looked interested and did play with some intent.
Good post mate and I love how you use stats to back up your arguments even if stats can be misleading at times.
We all have opinions as fans so it's interesting to see how other fans think how a good could of been won or avoided defeat. When I watch a match I look closely at the tactics and positions of players rather than just the clear and obvious.
I too agree regarding Wing, I'm not putting him in the same breath as Ozil but I feel he is a luxury player who only has a few qualities and is lazy. If you form the team around him and have lots of work ethic players around him to cover him then great but if not then you I feel we are always going to get exposed.
I didn't feel Roberts was that great against Stoke so I can see the tavernier argument but I don't think you should ever change a winning team especially in our position.
