We really MUST stop this habit of giving away an early goal and having to come from behind. It is so frustrating for everyone concerned when this happens. Why has this been happening lately? As we found to our cost against Norwich. Our defenders seem to be so unsure of what is going on around them at times….and getting the ball up the field must be done quicker…..even if it means long ball tactics.
Yes , we are top of the Premier League…at the moment , but we will not remain there for long if we have to keep coming from behind.
