Quoting the Laws-We Have Been Too Gung-Ho
Our new gaffer has now had chance to watch a few DVDs of our games this season and of course sit through his baptism of fire managerial debut for the Clarets against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
He has been reflecting on that game and has defined our approach as a little gung-ho.
Clarets fans have probably sensed that for sometime but did not dare utter the words when Owen Coyle was around. Let's face it nobody could criticise the now disgraced deity but after no away wins all season and no win in ten matches, maybe the reality of Coyle's reign is beginning to sink in.
Laws taking about the United performance said:
'The Clarets looked dangerous going forward.We didn't have any fear, which was really heartening to see'
'But what is evident is that we are a little bit gung-ho,' he added
'We overload when we are attacking and that leaves us vulnerable when we don't finish the move off. You are under the cosh from that moment.
'I wouldn't like to curb the enthusiasm but there is a little bit of work to be done there because there is a time and a place for such tactics.
'Away from home maybe you have to be a little bit more patient.'
I think most Clarets fans will be heartened by those words from the new gaffer since so many times on the road this season we have screamed out for a Plan B to no avail.
Let's hope Laws can now translate those fine words into actions on the pitch and we can thrash Owen Coyle's Gung Ho Bolton a week on Tuesday!
