I seriously thought of leaving this blank. But this is Steve Bruce‘s mess so let his post-match email do the explaining …
Too often we’ve been at home and created enough chances but not done enough to go on and win the game.
We’ve created enough, but haven’t taken those chances. It’s happened too often in recent weeks.
We have to be bigger and better. We need to have the ability, when the chances fall for us, to stay calm and not get edgy or nervous, and take a few of them.
We piled people forward to try and win the match and we made a mistake.
Wes Brown has been terrific for us in all the games he’s played and he’s made a bad mistake today, but I’m not going to hold him responsible for their goal.
You can’t keep making excuses, week in, week out. Unless we handle it and deal with it we’re going to have afternoons like this one.
I fully understand the frustrations of the fans, but I’m still convinced the dressing room will turn it around.
It’s in my nature never to chuck anything so we’ll be ready to go again on Monday morning.
We will dust ourselves down and get ready for the challenge ahead.
All the best,
