Perhaps it’s just me but I’m not really a fan of bob’s tippy tappy football. I know it looks pretty and it’s lovely when it works,but has anyone apart from Swansea got promoted from this division having a hundred passes before they passed it into the back of the net.You have to have a couple of tiny blokes in midfield like Leon Britten who can continually drop the shoulder and change the play effortlessly making hundreds of passes without cocking it up – we don’t have players like that.
Boxing day’s 2nd half was the first time this season ,by necessity, when we have turned to route one and we ended up having more chances in 45 minutes than we have had in the previous 3 or 4 games put together.
It was exciting, it was fun , it was joyful , it was thrilling, it was entertainment.
Bob, please can we have some more of the direct stuff.
