What I thinks going wrong at the minute. In my own personal view. And yes I will slate some players in this post just to disclaim because some people on here act like they’re defending their child from criticism.
It’s hard to judge against a team like Birmingham because obviously they played pretty much the 90 minutes with 8 deep players and we simply didn’t have enough quality on the pitch to find that clinical edge.
Partially and equally,
-Maddison hasn’t been good with his playmaking and some of his decision making has been poor. He’s either dropping too deep and overtaking ndidi’s job at time I feel. Or going out wide and trying to play some Barcelona stuff with Chilwell who just isn’t on the same wavelength.
-This leaves a huge hole in the ‘Number 10’ and like in that game there’s no one to drop in there.
-Chilwell although he does get into some good positions attacking wise, still can’t pick out a sensible pass or cross 9/10 times.
-As a team attacking we’re just not looking for that killer pass and move often enough and of course they could of been told to play like that.
-Collectively as a lot of people will know we’re passing back A LOT and often it’s passes into players that put them under a great deal of pressure.
-Too much responsibility left to the single striker with a real lack of service through the middle and often poor decision making out wide.
Lastly, were the commentators playing a drinking game to tick off every cliche in the book?
