rowlo-efc Posted November 24, 2005 Report Share Posted November 24, 2005 After picking ourselves up from the abyss that is the foot of the table - getting 7 points from 9 against tough opposition, we then went and badly let ourselves down against the albion. Infact the albion game was by far the worst game so far this season (inc. Bucharest away!). They were not much better than the stuff I get to see on a Sunday down at my local park - the defending was nothing like the premier league standard that we have all grown to expect from our players. The more skillful players didn't turn on the magic and the battlers didn't battle. we were a disgrace and our effort levels were rock bottom.. but why? Why are the players not working hard enough - why did moyes not expect a defeat at all - why did he assume that we would win?! Is there a deep rooted problem amongst the players that even Moyes failed to spot? I just cant understand how a team can grind out results against Chelsea, Boro and top strugglers birmingham and then go to WBA and not only get beat, but get stuffed. We were so bad that we allowed every one of their strikers to score. I cant see what is wrong - we have a very good team now, probably the strongest since the 80's. Every player is receiving the right wages - and is getting parity compared with their peers - so there cant be much arguement there. Every player is getting their chance to shine - either through injuries or via merit. What is going wrong? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
