Running out of excuses
Is tomorrow a must win? Game 12 of the season.
Losing or in our case drawing is a habit. We couldn’t even hang on in the Pizza Cup on Tuesday. I was needlessly annoyed after the game, and despite what Scott Marshall said this was not a youthful team, and it was shocking that after dominating we still lost to a team 3rd bottom of L2 with just one win all season.
Confidence is obviously low throughout the whole team, and we are running out of excuses. Even Chuks is back in training meaning that Ben Garner has a full first team squad to pick from, other than Diallang Jaiyesimi, who was injured at Colchester.
The manager has recently taken to jettisoning players out of the team and squad, and all eyes will be tomorrow on his starting formation. Does he stick to his adopted 4-3-3, which the players have been attempting to perfect since his arrival, or does he simply play Stockley and Leaburn up top with two wingers providing the ammo?
We’ve scored in almost every game, it is finishing teams off that is the problem, but it is in defence for me that we have the biggest issues. A clean-sheet is impossible for this lot. O’Connell does not look up to grade, Inniss is a liability with the ball at his feet and Lavelle has simply been a liability full-stop.
We have to move on from the transfer window blind alley and support what we have, and I actually like one or two of the players, at least currently. I like Garner too, but he also was a project, a vanity project for TS, but the time is now to get off the drawing board.
Best of luck to those
