Disappointing or going as planned?
After watching that insipid, boring, uninspiring, embarrassing, disappointing....... match with Steau Bucharest, I decided to come up with an article for us to share our views on our season so far.
Let me start by giving my own view; at this stage of the season I had expected Jose to have adapted a good pattern of play, sorted out his first eleven, sorted out the right formation for this set of players and the right players for that formation, phased out Lamps and Terry as they are both too old and not of the required talent to play the kind of exciting football our young and talented players should be serving us every weekend.
NO, what I have been seeing is us playing 'most' of our football between the pivot players and the back four, Lamps playing regularly because of a formation that isn't right for us and Jose's unwillingness to change it. Terry has also been playing every game, though he's been good and not as bad as I expected I still don't think he should be playing every time. De Bruyne is not getting any quality game time even against Bucharest! FFS.
Ivanovic playing regularly despite being average all season while a better replacement is being wasted at LB. I have never been so discouraged about our chances going into all competitions this season. We've been so average all season, nothing has been spectacular about our performances or results. We've been so inconsistent, not producing good performances against lowly teams, failing to kill off teams when the opportunity presents itself, giving dull and rubbish performances when great performances are expected, lacking a specific identity, not showing a good pattern of play except passing the ball all day between the back four.......
One last thing I'll say is that I don't understand why we don't create that many chances despite us 'allegedly' having 6 AM's. For other top teams, creating chances in games come as a natural thing for them but for us, it`s like we just don't know how to go about it.
What's your take on our season?
Let's hear it out.
