What a weird season!!
We lose to Fulham, Stoke and Hull and beat Man Utd and Chelsea!!
Why is it we can raise our game when we play the big teams and not turn up vs the less glamours opposition?
I know there are no “easy” games in the league anymore, But to win the league you need to be consistent and not only turn up and play well in the big games.
The only way i can describe this is we are like a Boxer who gets himself up for a big fight and puts everything into it as he knows there is a chance he is going to get knocked out and lose.He puts everything into the fight and is focused and wins.
The next fight he faces a Mexican road sweeper who has never beat anybody, a no Hopper. We don’t get ourselves up for the fight as we think all we have to do is turn up and we will win. But the Mexican is up for the fight as this is the biggest day of his life and trains hard and puts everything into the bout. Was cant get complacent and think we are now going to win vs the little guys, Or we might fall on our ass.
Its the same sort of thing. We need to treat the likes of Hull and Stoke with the same respect as Man Utd and Chelsea.
