The insipid mess that was a poor excuse for a team against the Woolwich Pikeys on Saturday or a team with some backbone, spirit and ability, like the one that turns up on European nights?
Maybe they should have worn the crappy “chocolate” strip at the weekend.
When Jol should have been complaining about the antics of the scum (something needs to be done about them, especially Lehmann, but it won’t as in all the debate following Ronaldo’s antics at ‘Boro Rosicky’s dying swan routine to get the first pen wasn’t mentioned.) and another edition of the “Graham Poll Show” he decided not to take the ARSEne Whinger route of blaming everyone else for the failings, instead having a go at the players for the inept display. Though this could be seen as blaming others as I don’t think his rotation policy helps one bit.
Just as Defoe gets settled, good game and well taken goal against Wigan, he’s out. Partnerships is what’s required to get a cohesive unit. Ledley & Dawson at centreback, Jol knows this that’s why you don’t see them being rotated even though the captain ain’t fully fit. There needs to be a regular central midfield pair, it should have been Huddlestone & Zokora on Saturday but Tainio was in there, not the game to bring back a player from injury. And the strikers need a run of games together to form a knowledge of each other, so few goals and changing from game to game can’t be a coincidence.
And Cardiff in the cup has upset written all over it.
Well at least Jenas is out again with an injury, every cloud…
