Confident Zaba’s positive message

zab“It’s a massive game on Saturday after the big defeat against Manchester United. It wasn’t our best game. After the second goal we probably lost confidence as a team and knew the game was over and we conceded two late goals.

“We need to work and be mentally strong enough, even if we are losing 2-0, to fight until the end, and this is something we should improve.

“Of course, it’s not time to panic or anything like that. It’s time to be focused on the next game, which is Southampton away. It’s going to be another tough match, but we have to believe we can get a good result.

“I’ve always got the same belief for every game. This is something we need to work on, even against the big teams. Of course, Manchester United away is always difficult, but you have to play those games and try to have confidence and the belief you need to try to get a result.

“Whatever the result, you have to make sure you have done everything to get something from that game and then, if you lose, keep your chin up and think about the next game.

“We worked really hard this week on the things we need to improve and be better at and I’m confident. We have strong players and we are at the beginning of the season and we are working really well.”

  6. He can’t blame the new stadium this year and has already come out and said he has the players he wanted.

    7 goals conceded in two games, the starting Xi have been wrong in both and no one can tell me the tactics from either the first two games.

    We conceded too many goals and late in games last season. Our useless manager does not learn.

    Sign Carvalho and Jota and get a new man with a plan A, B and C for all games. Make us difficult to beat!

    This isn’t a knee-jerk reaction. He should have gone last season.

  7. Funny isnt it,the tv & radio pundits all said what a great effort we put in & the fans should take lots of positives from it..

    Then theres yous lot…the noisy website minority while everyone else gets on with supporting the team.. you’re embaressing.

  8. The winning penalty was an awful decision.

  9. It’s called opinions if you don’t like it move on to another site simples

  10. Kudos Bubs and Norfolk for calling it as you see it. If you don’t like what you see and think that there should be a better formation, choice if players etc etc whats sad about that and who is anybody to call you prays?
