McLeish - Defeat Was A Kick In The Teeth
Alex McLeish has described today's loss to Newcastle as a kick in the teeth...there seems to be a few of those today with unhappy players, fans, and a manager.
Speaking to the Official Site following a game that had players telling him to 'eff off' and even journalists taking the urine about him ingratiating himself with the fans by taking off N'Zogbia and replacing him with Ivanhoe, today had it all didn't it...including yet another blinking loss.
McLeish however was, as is now standard, pleased with the performance and believes it was a kick in the teeth that we didn't at least take a point from the encounter, especially again as we have a 'ref blaming moment' where he believes Heskey didn't foul in the lead up to their winner.
It's a kick in the teeth, I thought we were worth a point, if not all 3. We made a number of chances, in the first half we were especially good, we kind of controlled the game and to go behind was pretty awful to bear. The goals themselves were disappointing, but for us to create so many chances? Tim Krul was in fantastic form.'
In the second half so not much, and he does kind of indicate tha to his credit and he does point to the plethora of chances that Benty especially had that we didn't convert.
'I thought the performance from our guys was very, very good at times. We still have a tendency to make errors but it's definitely a good performance from the players.'
It's just another one of those weekends isn't it.
