Snowflake Royal3pointsthink you missed the point. I don’t think the cup game had much to do with it. It’s a common theme for us against lower table teams who sit very deep and don’t pressure the ball. We lack creativity in midfield and movement up front. We do not counter attack with pace when we get the occasional chance to do that against that type of teamSnowflake Royal Morrison, Swift, Gunter, Richards and Meite all played the full game against Cardiff four days earlier. Blackett played 90 mins, Pele played 60, Aluko about 90.
We failed to win that game due to one late mistake. Probably from mental and physical fatigue.
Not sure how you can say we lack creativity in midfield with Swift and Ejaria.
I don't think I've missed the point at all. Our performance against Hull is easily explained by fatigue.
Stoke, Barnsley and Birmingham are really the only disappointing results we've had against more limited teams and two of them were away. Maybe include Cardiff, but that's another away. And we only lost one of them. QPR were high flying when we played then, plus away.
I’d argue most of the teams we’ve played have been limited. The standard this season is pretty average.
3p makes a good point - for a midfield of supposedly creative players we don’t create enough. I think we have on occasion but not consistently. Our movement needs working on from receiving the ball in midfield to upfront.
