Yesterday’s ‘performance’ was nothing to do with ability, confidence, refereeing or luck. Oxford United simply wanted it more. Our ‘defending’ for their first (when Oxford had a player off the field having received treatment) was typically awful. And the second goal, well?!
Around the 60 minute mark I noticed one our attacking players take a small step forward, feet firmly planted on the ground rather than jumping to challenge their full-back for the ball. He seemed reluctant to try to win the ball for fear of being challenged. Really, what chance have we got?
Week in, week out - same mistakes, even worse their attitude stinks.
These players have now got through two managers - one popular with fans, the other a genuine legend.
So far, they have a got an easy ride in my opinion. Not any longer.
