He sort of says it all …
Sometimes in football you have to take a knock like that and I’m scratching my head.
I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a game like that where we had so many attempts on goal without scoring. It was one of those days – we wouldn’t have scored if we’d have played all night.
But we have to go away, lick our wounds and get on with it. I signed Richard Kingson twice and I signed DJ Campbell too, and they’ve come back to haunt me.
Fair play to Blackpool, they are a breath of fresh air. They play the game expansively.
I couldn’t fault our performance apart from the goal. We’re young and we know that; we make mistakes and if I’m being critical we tried too many difficult things.
But it was just one of those horrible days which we have to forget.
If I’m being critical, you have to take your chances at this level. Teams pay big money for people to stick the ball in the back of the net and unfortunately we couldn’t do it today.
