When you have observed, our defence leaves numerous gaps which obviously lets in the attackers to skip their manner via our defence and create scoring possibilities.
Each attack from the opposition, therefore, without problems breaks our shielding form and, I cannot pressure this sufficient, there may be always as a minimum one player out of role looking to prevent the attacking float.
Why does this manifest? It’s in reality because our gamers do not close down the opposition’s gamers short enough, and it’s now not a breaking information either when I say that our defensive press is not synchronized. Both EV and QS applied a respectable press in attack but they took a conservative approach when it got here to our shielding press.
And that i assume that is why we’ve conceded an surprisingly excessive quantity of goals these days.
You in reality can’t deliver the attacker sufficient time to appearance up and discover his alternatives, as often as our defence does. Call it lazy defending, conservative approach or loss of motivation, but do no longer solely blame it on the age.
Age is a thing right here, positive. But that did not forestall groups like actual, Atletico, Inter, Juventus (and different teams which still have oldies of their squads) to carry out at a excessive level not like Barça in those past seasons – especially in defence.
An possibility to develop, motivation to show your worth, the starvation to win – these kind of are simply non existent with our current squad. This is why I wanted the young players to take delivery of more chances. We neither developed our young people nor did we win a unmarried trophy this season.
Without a new signings made inside the protective branch nor the kids being depended on enough, and on top of that, with the present day board incharge for some other year – assume a good extra disastrous season.
Nicely, unless Koeman comes to a decision to restore the lazy mind-set of our gamers and come what may motivates them to present their all
