We Didn't Do Enough

We Didn't Do Enough


Stiliyan Petrov, new club captain, has admitted we didn't do enough in our match against Wigan today. Fans however disagree, they are saying we didn't do anything.

Speaking on the official site in his new role of attempting to placate those of us who are less than happy, Stan admitted Wigan deserved all 3 points today.

'It's very disappointing. I don't think we had enough to take something from the game. We just weren't good enough.'

Confidence can hardly be high after that and many fans have already indicated their worry for the forthcoming campaign, what will we take seriously, will anything change and more importantly it's going to be a hell of a long season.

On that point Petrov agrees, but probably for different reasons.

'It's going to be a long season and we hope we won't have a repeat of games like that.

'We made it bad for ourselves. We had a few chances but after the first 15 minutes they woke up.

'They passed the ball better and they scored a good first goal. We had a few chances but we just couldn't take them.

'Overall I think they deserved to win today and we will see tomorrow what mistakes we made.'

They woke up, and like normal we fell to sleep. I got used to these sorts of quotes in the second half of last season unfortunately it appears we'll have to get used to them in this one aswell.

Even if we sign proper players, we need tactics and ideas! Do we have them? I can see MON panicing now and bringing in an handful of salifou, harewood, routledge type players, and next summer we will be selling them!
