OK thank you SAF for saying it out loud but as far as Chelski goes & the excuses, Im not trying 2 hear it. Not only do they lack that killer instinct but they also lack passion. I've said b4 (& got a lil slack 4 it) that I'd rather we lose a hard fought , passionate game than win/draw a complacent, lucky one. I'm not overreacting nor am I naive. I don't expect there not 2 be problems or dull performances once in a awhile but not week in & out. But am I wrong 2 expect passion more often than not?
There is a spark in majority of our players that is missing. Saying you're eager 2 play & improve is one thing & bringing your enthusiasm on the pitch is another. Wanna know why I love Chicarito so much? The look on his face when he scored against Valencia, the pride & appreciation he showed for MUFC & SAF when he kissed the badge & the determination he shows on the pitch as well as having an objective in his performances. The term "work rate" is overrated. Running around like a headless chicken amounts 2 jack if it results in no gain. Discipline & composure is whats needed & the rest (goals, confidence & consistency) will follow suit.
Time 4 SAF 2 dust off the hair dryer, pull out the whip & weed the garden. In other words, remind players whats expected, lay down the law when expectation is consistently not met & then let go of those who can't justify their paychecks w/ performances. SIMPLES
