Per my earlier posts, it's an issue of fundamentals for me. They dont have a clue what to do in any given situation. They are failing the basics and it shows in how easy it is for other teams to score against us. It's a lack of work rate and any premier league side is going to punish that, especially one vying to top the table. Players are simple creatures, you dont want to have them improvising allover the pitch or engaging in a discussion with 5 team mates about a throw in or free kick. What is strange to me is I would expect a new coach who has recently earned his badges to be all over these things but it seems we are still obsessed with playing open attractive football that the exact opposite is happening. Trying to run before we can crawl. Even talented players need a framework to work in.
