Frustration, Frustration, FrustrationBy: Allan | October 21st, 2010
So Monday was a night of frustration to say the least. The main positive to take from the game is defensively we looked fairly solid, even before the sending off. Bramble and Turner are beginning to look the part as a double-act. Our young goalie had a couple scary moments, but generally our backline was never really troubled.
Steed has his critics, but by taking him off, Steve only succeeded in opening the game up and midfield – thereby, giving Blackburn a foothold when they should have been dead and buried. Although Darren missed a great chance, he’s obviously carrying a knock at the moment. It’s high time the other strikers started to contribute with some goals. If I were Steve, I might be tempted to start with Gyan on Saturday – let’s see once and for all if he can justify his massive price tag. Houllier has a reputation for being slightly cautious away from home, so we need to go at them right from the start. Over the last few weeks, the form has been pleasantly solid, but we could do with a win, just to try and build a bit of momentum and keeps us away from the drop zone.
Hopefully, there’ll be a little more to talk about next week after a resounding home victory!
