That's quite a lot of words to say the same thing as you have previously.Agreed we create few chances, but so do a lot of other teams in the PL. The difference is (with the good teams) they have the quality up top (and midfield) to finish those chances. But even lowly Burnley yesterday for instance, 1 chance = 1 goal.
If you have no focal point up top players just don't knock it in the box, or even pass to them to make the chances. We have 2 good wing backs who get up there to create chances but rarely cross it.
We always try to walk the ball in rather than make the telling pass and there's a reason for that. Fuck, unless it's a corner we have no one to head the ball! And then we don't get the corners in the correct place.
It doesn't matter what system we play when you have Hwang, Trincao and Fabio. They aren't good enough for the PL never mind for top 8 PL. Unfortunately Raul,and now Neto aren't with it. When you are relying on Jonny or Nelson to score (who had the 2 best chances yesterday) there is a massive problem, as the stats tell us.
Podence and Neves are our chance creators. Without them we are quite frankly toothless in creating opportunities to score.
Summer is huge, and could go both ways, but we have to give Bruno his own players and some time imo. Bring a new manager in now isn't replacing one person. It's a whole team of people. Then it's a start again job.
I'm not sure if we have finishers as we don't create good enough chances because our attacking play is rubbish, particularly away from home.
It may be both but it's hard to tell with the pedestrian garbage Lage is serving up at the moment. The Leicester fan sums it up perfectly for me
We obviously don't agree so best to leave it there
