We lack motivation
« on: October 20, 2019, 01:39:13 PM »
A lot of games this season including yesterday we start very slowly. It seems as if we need a rollicking at half time to get us going. Jim made this comment on commentary yesterday.

This does not bode well and we will not get promoted like this.

I have to say it crossed my mind so far this season on more than one occasion. Yesterday was a classic example, not enough players want to run through a brick wall.
If we are to finish in the top six, we are going to have to buck our ideas up.

Our first half performances are not looking good at all then we get our act together for a second half show but lack bite in the box.
Pressure is on Ried to produce a goal, I wonder if he will be given another chance against Luton or if Parker will now fall back on Kamara.

Maybe the lack of motivation is that we have to many loan players ,especially as those loan players are playing in many key areas

The first half has been a big issue for a few seasons now.
I can't understand how a manager (and it's applied to a few of them) has all week,
or at least several days to motivate the players from the first minute and yet frequently
we have been galvanized in the 15 minute break.
Strangely enough Slova was as guilty as anyone.
I guess it's like "Monday Morning Blues"

Over here Wednesday is referred to as "Hump Day" as at 12.01 we're heading towards
the weekend.
That's "Camels Hump" not "Rogering"

Kamara should start the next game. One thing he can’t be criticized about is effort

Our problem is we don’t shoot on goal.
Possession without chances is useless

I am not a greater enthusiast with too many loan players, and not all appear to bust a gut often enough over the last 2/3 years.

Tom Cairney is no leader in the Murphy style. We must find someone who is prepared to use his voice.

Unfortunately other than effort and pace, Kamara lacks EVERYTHING else!

That still makes AK more useful than Dec Reed

This does not bode well and we will not get promoted like this.

Last seasons unmotivated players were allowed to go to the club of their choice and now people wonder why this years players maybe unmotivated. If you play for Leeds and want to play premier league next season, then you need to get Leeds promoted. If you play for Fulham, just keep fit and play well near transfer window opens and say the championship doesn’t motive you.

Watching the game the commentators said he didn’t look right, dived to get a penalty and then got a silly booking. If Mitro isn’t on fire then what’s plan b? How do make changes? Parker needs to have an alternative.

Two inverted wingers and Bobby Reid should be able to score.

I don't see why pro players wouldn't be motivated to try and get teir team into the Prem, but I suppose they don't seem that  motivated when they  start the games on the back foot and concede early.

Well, I've seen the extensive warm up the Fulham players do, so that can't be it.

I think it's more a mental thing - we don't start confidently, and the opponents come at us right from the start, and don't allow us to get into out rhythm. That, and  our defence still seeming uncomfortable, and not functioning as a unit.

Starting  with  three at the back on Saturday didn't help.

But our defence wasn't that great when we went up under Slava, but we managed to score a lot of goals - more than we conceded. We have the players up front to do this again, though our defensive errors still need to be sorted out.

But they’re not. Maybe there are other problems within the club but on paper we should be doing so much better.

We are much less patient and composed than we were before Jokanovic left, and some of that has to do with the types of players on the pitch as compared to previous teams.  Aggression has to be channeled positively or else it turns into frustration and is wasted in a destructive manner.  My personal feeling is that the tempo of our game is being controlled by opponents more often than not.  The team needs to gain its own personality and Parker needs to enforce that upon them.
