McLeish - We Should've Won It

McLeish - We Should've Won It

Alex McLeish has declared himself disappointed that we failed to capitalise on our start against Sunderland today and in doing so, fail to take all 3 points.

Speaking to the Official Site following the draw, McLeish admitted our inability to turn draws into wins had been a major disappointment this season:

'We wanted to win it, we went all out to win it, we had the chances to win it but there are no guarantees. I felt on the overall chances we should have won it. We've had far too many draws although I don't think it is for the want of trying.'

hand to mouth calling

Whilst McLeish doesn't point to excuses or look for them, he does say the injuries today knocked us off our stride and that it did unfortunately affect our momentum:

'It disrupts your momentum because I thought James was in imperious form. I thought he was dominant and to see him going down like that was definitely a blow, but credit to the players who came on and did really well.'

Again we are left ruing our mistakes aren't we. A point is a point, but we desperately need wins and with Bolton and the other games we have coming up, very few can predict where they are going to come from now.

he obviously watches a different game to everyone else! Sunderland had a perfectly legitimate goal disallowed,had more possession and looked more likely to score. Different Planet

How does a centreback being subbed effect our attacking momentum?

Collins was playing well but we still looked totally clueless at set pieces, Nzogbia looked crap again and I have no idea why carruthers didn't get a run out.

"We should of won it" ????!!!!! Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, what a frigging *****. Sunderland should have won by at least 2, they had 4 clear cut chances and a goal disallowed that was very touch and go. We had one clear chance at (HOME) which was to Weimann when Albrighton put him through. Sunderland looked like way more of a team, our poor lads are fighting hard but playing on their own. There is no team there, no linkup play, shape, formation or direction, it's every man for themselves. Ireland and NZgobia are two brilliant talents just going through the motions, their hearts clearly not in it. The young boys have bright futures but are learning their trade under the wrong man and the wrong way. Now we are on 36pts after 34 games and flirting with the real possibility of relegation. McLeish is obviously not going to quit so the board need to wake the hell up and act NOW. Bugger this until we are safe or until the end of season crap, nobody wants him from the players right through to the fans. We have been absolutely pathetic this season and we can't blame our style, mentality or footballing philosophy on a cut down in wages or selling players, that has to be laid squarely and fairly at the managers door..... SERIOUSLY how long can this go on..... Furious.
