No excuses Snoddy holds his hands up

Robert Snodgrass never makes excuses, always has something interesting to say and takes the blame whenever it is required or necessary.

He did so immediately after the missed one on one goal scoring opportunity which could have changed the shape of the game against Wolves and full credit to him for that

We all have loads of time for the midfielder who  at 32 – puts  many of his juniors to shame with his non stop running, determination and enthusiasm.

He went off injured in the second half at Molineux but hopefully will be okay for Monday night as – like Antonio – he is one of those players who currently gives us a battling edge.

Having again started the slowly as not one of the regular first teamers he has shown his determination to b einvolved week in and week out remaining one of the first names on the team sheet.

Like Mark Noble – given the age – that really is some achievement.

Speaking at https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/december/05-december/robert-snodgrass-were-gutted-because-it-was-chance-us he said: “Fair play to Wolves, they took their chances. I thought we had some good chances and we’re really disappointed because we let ourselves down with some cheap goals.

“For my chance I took a good first touch, the second I tried to go on my left and the keeper’s just come out and done well. I’m disappointed because it’s a chance I should have taken, and have done most of my career. 

“We’ll just go back to the drawing board and take the positives from the game because I thought there were some good performances and on another day I take that chance to make it 1-1, so I’m gutted.”

“We’re professional footballers, there’s no excuses,” he added. We’re at this level on merit, we take care of ourselves off the park and prepare ourselves for the elite level.

“This is why it’s the Premier League – they’re not different, they had a game in the Europa League on the Thursday, then played on the Sunday, so there’s no excuses. Wolves took their chances and they deserved to win.”

  1. The positive I saw was Holland who is lightweight but has more quality on the ball than most of his team mates, he now needs to work hard without the ball and on his physique to establish himself. I thought Anderson was decent in midfield rather than out wide also perhaps we should keep him there with Holland out wide ? Rice was our best player imho possibly even best player on either side although Jimenez had a great game for them.

  2. Give Rice the CF position . Worth a shot given how bad Haller is . But somehow can’t see Pelligrini doing a Moyes by doing something radical and brave . Good grief I’m getting desperate lads . Would it be such a bad thing to try ? ! . Call me daft or some other thing but when you look at it ; Rice can hold up the play , get his head on a ball , pass , dribble and shoot . In fact fact he can do everything a CF should do . Yeh , rediculous thought . Thought I’d throw it out there anyway . I’ve actually said it a few times already . Haven’t been told I’m a nutter , yet .! , but there’s still time .
