Moyes on the boys

John McCormick writes: Two weeks ago we started positively against Man  City and we showed fight. Our manager found things to praise.

This week, despite a couple of positive comments, he’s not as upbeat. Nor  am I or, I suspect, anyone who went to the SOL as a home fan. We are just not good enough for the first division.

“It was disappointing that we didn’t take three points because there were some good things that we made.

It was a bit scrappy at times; I can’t say we played overly well, but I think Burnley make you play that way and they drag you into the sort of game that you don’t want.

not enough

I thought our performance was better in the second half. We had been too passive, but I certainly thought we had some chances to score.

Unfortunately the point we’ve got today isn’t enough, but we have to use it as a positive.

Today was one of the draws that I had down as a win, but we now have to turn one of the draws I had in mind into a win, so let’s hope we can do that.

We didn’t lose, but we know it was a real chance to get three points on the board.

We have to move on and hopefully after the international break it’ll give us the chance to get the players that we are missing back and hopefully in contention.”
