Edun was not up to it again. Support position is fine, but all he has then is that 10 yard backward ball inside. No creativity. But, he’s young and learning his trade etc., and no one stood out as any better or worse than anyone else today.
Very frustrating. We are best as a counter attacking side and cannot seem to breakdown teams that don’t come too far forward. If they score first we lose our belief, and clear goal scoring opportunities seem to evaporate.
Disappointing that Hopper stays so wide, and deep at times, he should have learned more from Wyke’s performance for Sunderland at the weekend.
I just don’t understand how we can play well up to the last 18 yards and create some great space for ourselves and not deliver a good chance in to the box. We are creating some great space for ourselves, but balls in to the box are awful, as is some of our positioning in the box, as is some of finishing. But we look great up to that point. What has Zeb got to do to get a game, even a proper sniff of part of one?
being allowed a lot of the ball once you are losing is something every team gets. and having a lot of the ball is different to dominating the game. as we well know from the old ipswich and charlton home wins.
A very good player but his contributions in last 2 games have been negligible, possibly time to use him as an impact sub. One goal from his one on ones with Sunderland would have made it a different game. If he is to be an impact sub. he has to be brought on of course.
