It would seem I was right to try and underplay things, having listened to that game.
We started brightly, but seemingly got worse as the game went on. Which figures. They’re the same players.
But having only listened to it on AVTV, which is very more factual, it’s hard to gauge any nuances or opinions as to how we actually looked as a side.
Here, I could use your opinions.
Smith brought Bolasie on for Elmo and then Hourihane for Grealish, which is probably very similar to what Bruce would have done, imo.
So basically Smith changed little and used the game to look at our weaknesses.
What could he have seen?
I don’t have a clue, apart from the fact that we simply can’t keep up a winning mentality.
This is what Smith needs to instill, imo.
Still, I can’t complain too much.
We won and that’s what it’s all about.
