Coin toss? Well that was optimistic! Went 3-5-2, they went 3-5-2 AOW (divine+4!). Possession was 50/50, but their attack v defence much better than mine, especially on the wings. It started well, we went 0-1 up, then missed a chance, they had an injury to a WB on 40 minutes, and we'd started shading midfield thanks to better stamina, then for the next five minute it just went mad, they scored FOUR goals, and us none. 5-1 at half time. Second half, we missed a chance, they had another injury to a midfielder, and they scored again in the 91st minute. 6-1 final score. Chances were 7-4. Not gonna lie, I didn't deserve a win, or maybe even a draw, but I feel 6-1 is more than a little harsh. Confidence now "wretched". Good luck to us scoring any goals now!
Definitely looking over my shoulder now. We're in 6th on 7 points, and okay, 1st is only on 14, 2nd & 3rd 12, 4th 10, but 7th who thankfully also lost is only 3 back on 4 points.
Luckily I have another away game, but it's to the whipping boys that only have 1 point so far, though 7th also have a winnable home match. Oh cripes, that's round 7, half way, so the next two matches are against the whipping boy, looking at the ratings I should be okay, but aforementioned confidence issues, I'll be trying to maximise the number of chances, my players need to score a hatful.
