RoyalBlueIan Royal 60%+ possession and 20 shots without ever actually theatening to score, the same problem endlessly repeated then the inevitable goal conceded.
I may be stretching it a bit with shambles, but did anyone seriously have any confidence we'd win?
Exactly this. Strange people are now praising the pretty approach play, despite the lack of end result - something that Adkins was criticised for!
As someone asked on BBCRB - do they actually have any goals at the training ground to practice shooting into?!
It is very difficult to continually defend 0 and Clarke's teams are far too often producing 0.
Last season Obita produced some lovely set plays and crosses. This season his crossing and that of everyone else has been disgraceful.
Adkins may not have had a cluee how to coach a side defensively, but I've seen nothing to suggest Clarke has a clue offensively. What does he do with them in training that their crossing and shooting is so utterly lacklustre?
And his attempts to address it have been to buy players who are even shitter at scoring than the ones we've got. He's not even tried to address the gaping chasm on our left flank.
