    We'd have won today.
    They were faffing and fannying around at the back in the first half just like we do and had we pressed them I believe they would have crumbled.
    Instead we held back and allowed them to play out comfortably.
    The players should be discussing these things with the coach.

    Hoping the coach is discussing them with the players.

    Well, he clearly is. The players haven't just started standing off defences on their own accord, they're doing it because Poya has instructed them to.

    For the first time today I gathered an inkling of why - it allowed us to get in positions to pinch the ball in midfield and counter. It worked a few times in first half, less so in the 2nd.

    There was a bloke behind me going ballistic every time he saw our forwards stand off their defenders, screaming "put a foot in you lazy ****'. It's as if he hasn't club clocked that's what's happened since the very start of Poyas first match.

    No pressure on defenders makes it so easy for them to clear their lines. There were a number of times yesterday in the first half pressure would have caused udders problems but did we ………………..?

    We might also have been knackered for the last half hour and conceded two or three more. We’ll never know.
