And we still score 4!
When we sort that problem out we'll be great!
meh. Let them tippy tappy about on the edge of the box, we'll take it back, break upfield and score then give it back to them
We look fucking mint on the counter attack under MoN .
We played them on the counter, and it worked, thats why we scored 4 and they scored 1
we look ridiculous on the counter under MoN, look like we can score everytime we steal the ball
our counter attacking has been a joy to watch, sess being the spearhead!
Opta have a lot to answer for.
wonder what super drunk will make of it tomorrow night?
i know people say dont listen but its funny and gives me something to listen to when doing my chores,
no doubt some planks will say wigan deserved to win :roll:
to me its not a problem, but villa fans got pissed off with it a bit, as he plays this way at home all the time aswell. As long as were winning and showing the fight we have shown since he came he can play whatever system he wants
Stats mean fuck all, the stream i watched showed Watson completed twice as many passes as Catts and made more tackles. Woopdeedoo.
we where nackered in the second half, defended well and caught them on the break, classic away performance.
They got spoiled man.
All that nearly breaking the top 4 stuff, they just needed a Houllier to kick on.
But this is what MON brings. Let them play pretty football in their own half when they get to the halfway line we;ll close them down break up play then counter attack. You only need 15-20 seconds on a counter to score and all those minutes of having the ball beforehand are for naught.
How many times did we play Villa at the SoL when MON managed them and you had that bad feeling in the pit of your stomach that you knew they were going to counter and score? me? everytime we played the fuckers
If I had to choose between 75% possesion & a loss/draw or 25% posession & beating the opposition by 3 goals I'd take the 25% without a 2nd thought every time
I think over the last few seasons people have become too hung up on stats...
Possession here, mileage covered there, tackles won here, passes completed there...
I think everyone will agree with me here that there is only one stat which truely matters
Number of away fans taken?
Like Blackpool :roll:
Possession is good. If you do something with it.
Wigan often play nice triangles going nowhere. Good luck to them but its why they are always down near the bottom. Not enough cutting edge.
We on the other hand, are showing that we can soak up pressure, then when we get the ball make key passes and create chances.
Nope number of beers consumed during half time
