If the Tweet doesn't show, it's basically WBA with the lowest pass completion rate in the Championship. I know there's an argument for over-complication but really, hoofing it up in the air or long throws shouldn't win you the league.
Definitely a tougher Warbs than we're used to. I think he was disappointed that the second string didn't really step up. Bettache was the only one that got any praise. Although I thought Archer could have had a shout out.
Was v disappointed with Adomah. I'd called to see more of him before this match but he looked a bit unfit and did some sloppy passes. Good reminder that Warbs sees them day in day out in training and knows who can last the 90 minutes.
I think he'd have like to have brought other players on but with our crazy schedule of the next two weeks he had to protect them. Obviously furious with the scheduling.
Just wondering if anyone with a better technical knowledge could offer some ideas as to how we might combat a team like Barnsley, who we're playing on Wednesday. According to Sky stats, Barnsley are the best in the league at winning the ball back in the final third and allowing the least amount of time for the players with the ball. While we have pretty good technical players, we do tend to like to take an extra touch or spend a bit of time deciding where to pass. Derby particularly hurried us into moving the ball.
How could we combat this without resorting to hoof ball?
I was just wondering how we'd been doing over the last ten matches in the form table. I was surprised to see, since we talk a lot about our defensive frailties, that only three teams have let in fewer goals over that period. And yet fifteen teams have scored more. Hopefully with Charlie bringing his guile and confidence into the team, that's changing. We've scored a tenth of the goals Watford have let in this season.
