Struggling to translate our quality
KATERINA LEE’S CLARETS VIEW
WHAT else is there to say other than what a terribly boring and just terrible game in general.
How did we manage to make Huddersfield look quick on the ball?
And what on Earth is going on with us?
Surely we’re better than this, we have a fair bit of quality in our team and yet it just doesn’t seem to translate on the pitch.
Again we have to question why the likes of Vydra doesn’t get a full 90 minutes, it all seems a bit strange.
It also doesn’t bode well for a very difficult run of games we have coming up and that just makes it all the more terrifying.
Do we now have to prepare for an onslaught against City at home and Chelsea at Turf Moor? Probably.
I think the inconsistency we have at the moment is becoming frustrating for fans.
I’m never one to start baying for Dyche’s blood but at the moment something has got to give with this squad.
It seemed at first that the last international break served its purpose and we can back stronger, so we can only hope another break sees us come back with a bit more fight.
Lord knows we’ll need that at the Etihad on the 20th.
What we can do is at least be thankful that it’s not worse, I suppose.
Everyone from the players to the fans is in need of a huge lift so what better way to do that than beat the current champions.
At this moment in time that feels like a colossal pipe dream, but in this dramatic game anything is possible.
A saving grace is that we haven’t slipped from 12th place, yet.
And we only need a few wins to see us reach the top half of the table.
Again, it feels unrealistic with a next few games but we can only proceed to live in hope.
We all need to get behind them now and will them to play better football because frankly the second half against Huddersfield was very poor.
Our game against City is not the time to slack and hopefully it’s not just the fans that know this.
A week off and vigorous training has got to see some results otherwise we could be in real danger by the end of the season.
