Watching the Lg 1 playoff final?


Recommended Posts

You know full well that if this was us, we'd have taken the lead, miss a hatful of sitters and then concede a stupid equaliser.

I know people don't want to hear this, but I reckon Sunderland look sh@t hot with their fast passing and running.

This wasn't the team we faced.

Sunderland look very good. Would like us to play this type of football next season. 

I don't think that's fair. 

 

We played some really good football last season.

No, because they didn't fancy their chances against us playing like that.

 

They stifled us, rather than give us a sniff.

 

It's a backhanded compliment to us, so so much for our being a bobbar team lucky not to be relegated.

Right now Sunderland have bags more energy. 1st and 2nd to every ball which we didn’t vAny of these sides and many others. They need  a 2nd because even Sunderland ain’t keeping this up all game. Too hot.

Might have a point. 

 

I always felt that if teams allowed us, we would usually tear them a new one. Saw it against MK Dons in that first half. 

 

Problem we had was finding a way to really grind out a victory when teams wouldn't let us play. That's what happened in the two legs against Sunderland.

Our opponents won't let us.

 

High Wycombe didn't let us either.

 

Neither did Sunderland.

 

Yet Sunderland are managing to play that way against Wycombe.

 

Could it be tactical?

In saying that, I'd quite like to get "revenge" on Sunderland next season, though that's more to do with their knobhead manager than anything else. 

 

Might be a 'knobhead' but knows his stuff. If we had him as manager next season I'd be more confident of us going up.

More of an indictment. 

 

They knew we played one way and didn't have the capability to change so they set up to counter it.

 

And it worked.

Having an outlet like Roberts would be bloody useful. 

 

Someone with that pace and ability to beat a man. 

 

He's had Jacobson largely on toast so far.
