These stats say 8 -2 shots "on target" and 72% possession. It was impossible not to win this game with the start we had. Our defence needs nothing short of a miracle to actually win us a game when our attack gets us ahead. A draw was a massive disappointment.

How can we have 72% ball possession and not win the bloody game?

we got problems at the back but in this game we lack the predator instincts in front the goal? 28 shots at goal... 8 on target .. only two goals...

consider someone like zaki in the game against up he had two shots at goal if i recall correctly both on target one goal and one saved. In his game against liverpool, two shots both goals. our midfielders does an awesome job at times getting the ball to the forwards and takes shots but we have to make it count

We could have had 100% possession last night and we still would'nt have won the way we played...

It's a shame we didn't get in a position that would have allowed Hughes to bring Berti on. Would like to see Dunne move back to right side of central pair and try Berti on the left.
