So having proved all season, and for several seasons in a row that we can't defend a 1 - 0 lead, what do we do? We defend a 1 - 0 lead! And we discovered that when the opposition make a tactical change, if we do nothing about it then they will gain an advantage for making that change. So another fruitless cause to keep chasing after, and we did it again today.
And it took until the 80th minute to bring on the player who should have started to replace the one who shouldn't have started. Some
say that Sibley hasn't produced anything when he has been on the pitch, but the reality is that he has hardly been on the pitch, and more often than not only comes on to the pitch when there isn't enough time to get up to speed, let alone make any difference. We also had Jason Knight in the DM role, and until the last few minutes all he did was pass sideways and backwards. Is that all they train them to do at the training ground? And with less than a minute to go we take nearly 50 seconds to take a throw, allowing Swansea to organise their defence when a quick, instantly taken throw-in could have caught them on the hop. Oh, and the one player who was up for it got taken off. leaving us with a 11 players who couldn't care less. Great tactics.
We deserve to be relegated, but unfortunately in League 1 there will be more of the Rotherham style "battering ram" style of football which we cannot cope with. Oh boy, does our future look good?
And these "couldn't give a flying fig" players are being paid (ie not earning) a huge fortune to be not bothered. So Mel, rather than pay all the players for their contributions this month, how about divvying the wage bill up and paying it to all the season ticket holders as an apology for breaching the trades description act with the product you are serving up?
