I’m sure City and Liverpool fans will be saying something similar today Troy. They both had lots of the ball for long periods - city 66% and lpool 63% compared to our 58% - and yet they both lost.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] wrote:Yes I can say we did, because it wasn’t just possession. We got in behind them numerous times only for the final ball to let us down. I genuinely don’t know what game you were watching if you think we created nothing, and the statistics support that.

The point I’m making is that we shouldn’t get carried away with talk of promotion especially as all our possession resulted in just 3 shots on target and 1 goal in the whole game and our inability to convert possession into goals has become a bit of a theme recently.
That has to be rectified without sacrificing other aspects of our play which is the tricky part of the equation to resolve.
Glos makes a good point about Doyler not getting the right kind of service for his particular talents - would he get it if we sacrificed his work rate outside the box or would it affect our possession? We just don’t know but something has to change, or rather be added to what we already have before we can consider promotion.
I’m happy that we’re much improved and that we are an exciting watch but it ain’t all there yet.
