And really thought we would win last night.
But took away a few positives from last night.....you can Def see an improvement,from the
start of the season,it's coming together..
Tough old league now...no weak sides....TV money I Spose.
Even City will lose 2 maybe 3 this year....you can't win em all,Spuds are way better than us but they've
been losing games.....art is to learn from it,fill the gaps and improve.
But Losing Lanza,Jack,and now Sanchez....really not helped Peller,really limits us,to what we
can do......Lanza in for Obiang last night ...pretty certain we win..
Losing Wilshere has in fact proved to be a benefit. Maybe a short term one but a benefit nonetheless. It enabled Pellegrini to find, imo, the most effective midfield combination amongst the present available staff in a 4 at the back system. And we need to stop factoring in Lanzini at the moment don't we. Given the seriousness of his injury I doubt if we will see a fully functioning Lanzini at all this season, assuming he ever gets back to his previous level.
I didn't see the game on Friday night so I can't really comment but from what I've read the main problem was not the midfield or lack of scoring opportunities but the fact those opportunities weren't capitalised upon. With once again, from reports I've read, Antonio being one of the serial offenders.
