What the Huns Did In Dubai


Recommended Posts

We could do with some of this, quote from Gerrard

There have probably been three aspects we have been working on - our organisation, out of possession and then what we do when we regain the ball, which is to play at a speed that makes it really uncomfortable for the opposition.

Ghost: I think McP knows this, the problem unfortunately is the time it takes him to turn the page and read it, by that time the opposition are already behind the ball and our midfield having been passing it along the line waiting on the next instruction.

You need pace and fitness in the team to play like that, the top teams hunt the ball down in twos and threes, they put pressure on the player in posession, we don't have the pace or stamina to play like that. The funny thing is that managers want to copy the top teams when in posession, keeper rolling it out to the full back etc but they don't focus on regaining posession the way top teams do.

We have a chronic lack of pace through the middle of the park, you wouldn't bet on Forster, Meekings, Dorrans, Ness, McGowan,Byrne, Hemmings or Johnson in a 20 yard race to the ball against any of the top sides in our league or the bottom sides in the Premier League.

Maybe the lack of pace on the park is a reflection of the lack of urgency off the park.

To an extent I agree but in the Derby McGowan, Hemmings and Dorrans were first to everything, Hemmings was giving the Utd back line two or three yards of a start and still beating them, Meekings (goal aside) was also effective against Shankland and Co.

While I agree there’s a lack of genuine pace and positivity in our team that game proved we can compete with the best in our league, our problem is we don’t do it enough or in each and every game and that part should be easily rectified if the management want it to be!!

Perhaps we (and them themselves) aren't as strict diet wise. Tiny things make massive differences. 

I completely agree.I would expect that all that is monitored.Take the example of 2 of the fittest and most determined Dees Bobby Wilson and Bobby Ford who were in our LC winning team .Not the most skilled or naturally talented but whose sheer fitness and strength towards the latter part of the quagmire conditions  were largely responsible for us taking the Trophy home.
