Ever the optimist, especially with only only three games in stuff, but we listen to all the detail and analysis from DF / DC and end up still playing mainly hoofball, so I'm not sure how the plan of opening the opposition up fits in to the thinking. Two decent away performances except we're at home.
Our forward play is devoid of creative movement, making final third link up play almost non existent. I know that we've hit the woodwork a few times, but in 180 minutes of home football, surely you would expect to create something to be worthy of note anyway
Generally seem to be playing 10-15 yards too deep, with little urgency to close down from the front, allowing opposition too much time and midfield possession.
Must admit, I expected better than this, even in these early days, but just a bit concerned that this style of play will be difficult to change from, the more we play it.
Still hoping there is more to come from our new players who have arrived with glowing promise but have yet to show their potential.
Overall, no panic from me, but improvement required in order establish a positive identity factor.
