First 15 minutes of the second half

Recommended Posts

That's an appalling statistic. That said you can make what you like of 'statistics'. It reveals a trait that 'Farke is God' believers conveniently gloss over and that is that serious questions have to be asked of this guy's half time team talks and his ability (or lack thereof) to get his message over. He either can't see / predict what is coming or if he can and does make the point to the 'lads', he is met with expressionless faces and a simple 'yeah whatever' response.

Last night the first ten minutes or so of second half was totally unacceptable as it mirrored (almost exactly) the start of the second half v Sheff. Utd. Remember that game? We were cruising at half time and should have been out of sight. At half time I said to my son.............'I hope Farke get's into the players heads because a storm is coming' (knowing how Wilder would react and 'gee his boys up'!).   What happened was appalling. We ambled out individually and lethargically, they came out 'united' and 'up for it'. Within a minute of the restart it was clear either Farke and / or 'the lads' had not done their job at half time as Blades powered forward past half heated / zero tacking, closing down attempts. Crosses came in and were woefully defended. Two goals were easily conceded and the contest was over. It was a disgrace.   Would love to know what Webber did after that game. If he was worth his salt he would have had Farke in his office and asked him ..............'what the hell happened there, why did the players not know what was coming'.  Did that happen? Bet not. All too cuddly in the Farke / Webber 'project' world I'm afraid.

Running out of stamina explains later second half. It doesn't explain why the team is so poor out of gate and why they buckle under pressure.

This has been a constant theme of the Farke era, not just this season. Lack of focus perhaps?
