that Doncaster took it easy in the 2nd half. That could have been really embarrasing...
RANT TIME (So I don't kick my cats)
4-5-1 - with Cresswell out wide - CRESSWELL IS NOT A WIDE PLAYER
And are we the only side in the history of the game to play 4-3-3/4-5-1 without any width?! 1st half...
And was that the slowest starting eleven ever to play for the blades?.. perhaps only our Man U loan player had any pace.
We weren't playing Real Madrid.. why did we go with the sole intention of playing for a point/stopping them from playing? We couldn't even manage that!
Message to starting eleven: THE BALL IS NOT A HOT POTATO.FEEL FREE TO CONTROL IT AND PASS TO ONE OF YOUR TEAM MATES AND MOVE INTO SPACE TO RECEIVE THE BALL BACK.
If you don't understand, look at Donny, they'll show you how.
Speed needs two years minimum to stamp his mark and clear out the dross....and have us playing as a team and with the intention of playing relatively attacking which is sometimes enjoyable to watch.
I'm quite prepared to see us relegated if the club could show me that in some time in the next 50 years they might try to entertain us and show some positive intent and not be so scared of losing/or the ball!...
The club needs a whole re-fit from the football side of it (business/commercial great progress has been made). I think Speed is the man to do it.. so let's give him all the time he needs. It's going to be painful this year that's for sure.
Well played Donny... credit where credit is due.. far far far to good for us tonight. Imagine what we could achieve if we followed the O'Driscoll/Holloway template for how the set their teams up to play.
Top half of the premier league I reckon....
