Let’s not waste too many words. Chris Coleman said his players allowed themselves to be intimidated by Sheffield United. Maybe; we were second best all over the pitch and the game was already beyond us when Asoro and Maja came on.
When it needed strength, we had none. When we ran, it was far too slowly and soon stopped. When a clever pass was needed, it didn’t come. When the ball was kicked or headed out of defence, it went to a United player. Whenever they attacked, they posed a threat. Vaughan, a solitary and powerless figure up front, offered effort but no serious hope of scoring and was starved of meaningful service in any case. Have we seen the last of Grabban? Is there anything Coleman can do in the transfer window?
I fear another defeat at the City Ground but who knows? Maybe we will eventually start competing even at this lowly level.
Guess the Score. There’ll be a prize, Tales From the Red and Whites Vol II or a mug or something else I think of (especially if you already have the book) and a suitable alternative should a Forest fan win. I ask for a UK delivery address and my decision is final.
Ha’way the Lads.
