Embarrassing that we’re planning defensive games against a team like Carlisle, who were a decent enough side but nothing special. It worked yesterday, but like you say, Watson isn’t going to save every shot no matter how well he plays.
I fear we have another reactive manager, playing to suit the opposition rather than to our own strengths, which includes playing Eisa in a role which suits him, not some forced formation to counteract a team which is of a similar quality. If we were playing Man City or Liverpool I would understand, but we were playing a team which finished two places above us last year and at home.
If Cox isn’t going to focus on attacking football then don’t promise it and raise expectations, and before anyone starts this isn’t met getting on his back, but offering honest assessment of what appears to be the case. It’s far too early to call for his head.
