If has taken me over 24 hours to really think about where it all went wrong last night!
With a fantastic run of games over the Christmas period, another 3 points last night was expected and put us 4 points ahead of the scum. Well as you all know that never happened, we dominated the game but only manage to come away with a 1-1 draw. At one point in the game I didn’t think we would get that.
West Ham came with a game plan which was to frustrate us and keep breaking the flow of the game up. They achieved this with some good defending but with some luck also. We just didn’t have the creativity or plan B to overcome this. It has happened too many times over the first half of the season, in such games as Burnley & West Brom. Fair play to West Ham, they had 1 shot on target and it was probably one of the old of the season Hugo did not stand a chance, I don’t think any goalkeeper would have saved that. We were just lucky that Son popped up with 5 minutes to go and score a very similar goal to earn us the point. Hopefully next time we play the hammers, the luck is with us and we come away win all three points.
This has made think that we really need to look at some players who can support Erickson and Alli if they are having an off day or just can get threw.
With a change of competition and level in opposition this weekend against Wimbledon hopefully it will be a professional performance and we progress to the 4th round.
We would love to know your thoughts??
One last thing – with only 50,000 people there it was a lot easier to get it and Home after the game!!
