Whenever I’m critical of this team, I do have to keep reminding myself of where we’ve come from, and how we should just enjoy it for where we are, but at the same time, there’s always the where we’re going to, and how to improve ourselves to get there, and the one biggy that is failing us at the moment is keeping possession. Willy Boly is one of the big offenders, and it’s what will keep him from being a top end defender with his distribution, but the one that is driving me crazy at the moment is Rui’s ball out to Doherty on the right. I’m sure there’s a statistician out there, but it’s got to be over 70% of them going straight out of play, and tonights latest one leading straight to Newcastle’s goal. Something that should have been entirely preventable. The question is though, why is it still happening? It’s easy to blame Rui for the crap throw/kick, or Doherty for the crap attempt at collecting it, but why on earth hasn’t Nuno spotted it and clamped down? It just isn’t working. Keeping possession is so critical at this level, yet game on game we’re giving it straight to the opposition in an attacking area. For me, we really need to start getting Coady taking goal kicks, and Rui restricted to rolling the ball out where possible. It’s baffling that we haven’t already clamped down on it.
