I’ve not watched much football from the Championship this season but, watching Leeds v Derby last night, I was so impressed with the above. Both teams never stopped running and pressing
We accept that the level of skill is not going to be the same in Leagues 1 and 2 but the energy, commitment and determination shown by those 2 teams for 90 minutes demonstrates what we should expect from our new manager and team.
This is where a manager’s ability to motivate his players is absolutely essential.
The closest to this level that I saw in League 1 was Barnsley. They completely outplayed us with the attributes that I have mentioned.
Hopefully, our new manager, whoever he is, will be able to assemble a squad capable of this level of commitment in League 2.
