I don't get this playing on the opposite flank. Routledge is right footed, Barrow is left. We have a 6'5 target man in the team, let's put some crosses in! If Routledge or Barrow were cutting inside and having shots I could maybe understand, but they're not. Couple of times on Sat, Barrow got to the right hand byline and was trying to chip a cross in with the outside of his left foot, how is that good play? Routledge has 2 right feet and avoids using his left at all costs
I would rather concentrate on what we can control. We should have been 3-0 down in the first 10 mins ffs. You had the Johnson sitter and the 2v1 where Borini(?) was completely free and waiting for the ball to be squared.
Utter shambles defensively. Up there with Leicester and Bournemouth under Monk.
Something is up with Williams as well. The man that has often held that back 4 together looks disinterested beyond belief and he's all over the shop
The lad needs to calm down a bit, he's going to do serious damage to himself if he keeps striking it so hard. How the goalkeepers have stopped him scoring in his last few games I'll never know. They must have had extra padding in their gloves, real rasping shots
