Looking back on yesterday's performance to see where it went wrong it occurred to me the players at the end of the game dropped to their knees.
Some of them looked tired.
Perhaps two away games in the space of a 4 days had an impact against a side who had two home games. You may say this is a payhetic excuse but I find it a more reassuring reason than the alternative (that we aren't very good).
Crewe were first to everything, only just, but it makes the difference overall. The penalty and sending off result from us not getting there first. Crewe looked sharper and quicker. Is it because they are fitter and better than us? I doubt it.
One example that springs to mind was when Joel was "sprinting" back after we lost the ball. He was giving his all, 100% never seen such determination to get back, yet he barely made ground, snails pace. He's heart and guts were there but there was nothing left in the tank. He was subbed shortly after.
Hopefully we will recover. Some players will get a needed rest and we'll be stronger in the new year.
See you Tuesday. :)
