this team proved first half on saturday for 20-25 mins they can play good attacking exciting football. after villa took the lead it was as though the shackles came off,the players seemed to forget the constant worrying about getting back to defend if we lose posession. they started playing without fear,playing as a free spirit,the tempo was up every player wanted the ball the movement was great,crisp accurate passing,players taking players on and not thinking,i had better not take him on incase i lose it. we were carving villa open time and time again,everytime villa got the ball we pressed them and got it back almost instantly. i bet mick was nearly having a heart attack watching them throw caution to the wind forgeting their well rehearsed defend at all times attitude and really going for it!! thank god for half time i bet they got a right $$$$$$$ing because they came out second half and you would not know it was the same team. just made me think these players can do it, they proved that, alas it was only for 20-25 mins but it was great to watch,then the halftime teamtalk came and they were reminded of what is expected of them. message to mick....take the defensive shackles off let them play without fear and constantly looking over to you(which a lot of them do) as your yelling for them to get back. sure we might still get beat but that 20-25 mins is what watching wolves should be about.
