Zola Talks More Crap
Listen to the buffoon:
"I am disappointed, especially after the first half when I thought that we were playing the best game of the season," Zola said. "The key was to keep the discipline because you have the extra man and I told them to keep it simple, to move the ball around until we have two versus one. Scoring the penalty would have been a big help because Arsenal would have played different football. But they just sat back and played the counter-attack. We just did not use the extra man."
Well that's is pretty much what I said he would have said in his half time talk! That was exactly what the players didn't need to hear. What they needed to hear was this:
"This is a fantastic opportunity to open a gap over the teams at the bottom. Junior I want you hugging the touchline on the right and taking on the fullback. Alesandro, onto the left but drift inside and look to get in as many shots as you can. Daprela, get up that left flank as much as you can and get in crosses. I want to see the ball in their box much more. Let's play the second half in and around their box. Cut out the passing sideways, let's put them under pressure. This isn't the time for pretty football. Arsenal don't like it up them so get the ball into the box and attack it hard. Score early in the second half and they will crumble. Now get out there and win it!"
Can you imagine Martin O'Neill saying "keep the discipline...keep it simple...move the ball around" when 1-0 DOWN against 10 men? He would have been motivating, not philosophising! No wonder we looked so dozy, the players were doing exactly what they were told to do by our twat of a manager!
