The passes and opportunities to effect them passes before the ball got into the area not even mentioned, the 2 poorly executed tackles in the penalty area that conceded the penalty not even mentioned, but Iwobi gives up possession in Chelsea's half and the goal becomes his fault The miss timed tackles in the area are the reason for the goal it's not so hard to work that out it's simple really. That’s just not true at all Palfy. My comments on him were actually during the match, nothing to do with pundits at all…. I was watching the match. The second goal was 100% started by his pass. If he kept possession there then they wouldn’t have been on the attack. It wasn’t even an attempted difficult pass, it was on the half way line and a simple sideways pass. They didn’t even need to intercept it, they just stood and received it from him. It put them instantly on the attack with our players out of position. Yes we had chances to defend it, but the situation wouldn't have arisen if it wasn’t for his pass. You manage your own company, you know full well about root cause analysis. And I’m pretty sure that video will be shown by Dyche to the players with him pointing it out as a mistake. This is why the world needs managers, as managers have the ability to look at the root cause of a problem. To wash over it as insignificant compared to other “players” mistakes is foolish as it lead directly to an opposition attack. The “I don't know fuck all” comment would be disrespectful to all coaches and managers, as I know first hand that they analyse these type of mistakes and use it to help players grow and learn. And I’m 100% sure that Iwobi will also analyse it himself and use it as a tool to grow and improve his own game. Football is a very subjective matter and while some may feel he had a terrible game, others may think he was average and others were worse. I do it myself regularly when I favour players, it’s natural. I want DCL to succeed so much that I sometimes gloss over his mistakes and weaknesses. But Iwobi is on a terrible run of form, and that game highlighted his bad run. No one needed pundits to tell them how someone played, we just simply watch and make an observation. Now get back in your hole in the Gana thread please. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
