Strug­gling to trans­late our qual­ity

Accrington Observer - - MOTORS -

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.
