We went in at 0-0. That first half was poor. Yet the second half was atrocious.
Now look back at the last handful of games. Even in games we got points in. And look at how we played in the first 45 mins and then compare this to the second 45 mins.
We are talking on this thread like this was an isolated incident. It’s been happening for most of the season. My frustration isn’t just with the Monday performance. It’s with the majority of second half performances this season.
So people talk about we played like we are on holiday as we reached 52 points. So what’s the excuse for playing so poorly in second half of games all the way back on November for example.
It’s not their mentality on Monday that’s the problem. It’s the mentality that’s been carrying on this season that is. I hope what we saw on Monday from Lowe was his patience finally snap with a number of individuals. We shall see.
We’ll never know what RL is really thinking about his own input, but as you say, the fact is that this pattern goes back many months. To me this suggests he’s not personally learning much from poor performances, for example how to make better tactical changes and how to get the best out of his players.
I find this of some concern.
