Half Time Burnley 1 West Ham 0 - Can It Get Any Worse?
I blogged before kick off that we had to take the initiative from the off, and the exact reverse happened. Burnley came out of the traps like greyhounds on speed whilst we ambled out weighed down by an inflated sense of our own ability. Where is the fight? Where is the drive? But, most importantly, where is the inspiration?
Even with two op front, there is no forward momentum, no creativity, no joined up play. We all know that a midfield featuring Behrami, Noble and Parker is as toothless as a buttercup but still Zola persists. We all know that with Spector and Collison on the left, there is no hope of balance and attacking penetration on the left hand flank, yet still Zola persists.
McCarthy has looked ordinary but so has Cole. Without Diamante we have no invention, no creativity. Nothing new there but Zola doesn't get it, does he? Portsmouth away, Blackburn at home and now Burnley away, and we have looked as dangerous up front as a cabbage white butterfly.
And the Burnley goal? Upson and Green England players? Don't make me laugh! Nugent made the pair look like absolute mugs! Yes, Nugent! God help us! West Ham United under Zola, stings like a butterfly, floats like a bee!
