It is good that we are winning
the tight games - though we are making it a little too habit forming...
A 4-3 win was good and we will
take itů.but it could have been so, so much more.
Think though today's game and the
number of opportunities we had, especially in the first half. We dominated
play for 80% of the half - but every time they went forward, they looked
menacing. Most times we went forward, we squandered the chances we had. We
performed better in the second half as we started to move the ball a bit
more and started to create more space up-front. I was especially pleased
with the team camaraderie around the goal-scorers (Rob, James G, Freddie and
James H) after they had scored - a great sign for the team as a whole. Each
of these goals was quality - though we seemed to score the harder ones and
miss the easier ones...
played well especially as he started to lay-off off the ball more in the
second half which started to open up the game a lot,
was very solid in defence again,
provided good pace and ball
delivery up front,
James H again managed
to find the space down the left and set up some great plays. Man-of-the
match today was Jack,
a game full of poise and confidence. Jack inspires confidence as he has the
pace and balance to thwart many an attack and has the presence of mind to
transform a defence play into attack - great game!
