Just thinking about past players.. who should've played at a higher level.. but didn't take it seriously.
Brad Maylett.. that first season.. he was really good. Trundle Mcleod.. he was brilliant, but sometimes he looked pissed whilst playing Robinson Knight.. the tw*t was obviously at least a level above.. but he was a tw*t.
All of them had top level credentials.. but fitness, attitude.
It was rather comfortable for Chelsea in the end.. if they didn't make sloppy decisions in the final 3rd, it would've been 3 or 4 nil..
Apart from the Sunday League gift.. I thought we done OK.. we probed, we prodded.. but we lacked the quality from midfield and the bench to break them down.
Hopefully we can find the Ayew brothers in dangerous areas against weaker opposition.. but as we've seen before against weaker teams.. we struggle to break them down.. that's why we're a point off the drop with 3 games left..
We're not a good side.. we're tidy.. but we haven't got that Jonjo Shelvey ball, that Ben Davies drive, that Jonathan De Guzman brain, that Gylfi Sigurdsson right peg, that Fernando Llorente leap, that marauding Angel Rangel, that tenacious Leon Britton..
We've got the ponderous Kyle Naughton That King lad who dissappears Tippy daisy cutter Tom Predictable Wayne Predictable Dyer Ki f*cking heads gone Olsson the enigma Renato the reviled Clucas the overpriced by 12 million Mike's OK.. just OK Mawson makes some weird decisions Fernandez has always been 2nd in command Fabianski you've got to feel for him A.Ayew lacks the pace, otherwise he'd be playing for a top team J.Ayew often sees the red mist and gets really frustrated Tammy is simply one trick
Collectively we're an average team without that cutting edge.. that's why we're 17th.
Hopefully they can prove me wrong.. but i have got a whole season of evidence.. that we haven't got that extra bit of play in us.
