I met my mate on the concourse at half time and we agreed it had been a really entertaining half.
However at full time I sat really pissed off – it felt like a loss. I can recall one shot on target and that was Bogle creating it for himself in the 1st half. We created sod all else. The final ball was atrocious – first man or wildly over hit.
Huffing and puffing is all very well but pointless with negative creativity. Morsy was anonymous for most of today.McDonald had a fine game defensively and Tunnicliffe had a good 1st half. But non of them created anything. Grigg tries hard but looks short at this level.Power is too slow and doesn’t react quickly enough at this level.
Gilby looked very good before his injury I’d like to see him back when fit. I presume Obertan is lacking fitness as well but I agree Joyce was too scared to chuck him on for 20 minutes. The point was too important to him and retention was his primary goal. I’d argue 3 points were far more important and he should have had the bottle to go for 3 rather than settling for 1.
We won’t stat up with draws – and when did we last score from open play ????
