  1. 36 mins in…. What the hell is our problem with passing?

    The reason we have so little possession, is because we can’t help ourselves but pass the ball back to the opposition!! I said it on Thursday, I’ll say it again. Practice passing the ball!!!

  2. That was utterly atrocious. We are slow, passing like 8 year olds and absolutely deserve to be two goals down.
