Baggies Must Take Chances
Bryan Robson has bemoaned the amount of missed chances after the 1-0 defeat to West Ham. 'The problem for us at this moment in time is that we're not finishing our chances. In the last three league games, we've had great chances but keep missing them.'
It is now 284 minutes since the Baggies last scored and Robson has told his players they have to start taking their opportunities. He also says the team need a break: 'You will start scoring goals and go on a bit of a run. When that happens, who knows? But you just need that break to win a game luckily 1-0 and then you're on the way.'
On the positive side, he said after losing to a Sheringham goal on the 57th minute:
'If we keep playing like we did today we'll win more games than we lose.' Adding 'It's disappointing when you play like that, especially in the second half, and you don't get anything out of the game. To be as dominant as we were in the second half and not get anything out of the game is bad play by us. It was also a poor goal to give away. We didn't anticipate winning the second ball from a big diagonal ball and Teddy did what he does best. Our anticipation was also poor from the amount of corners and set plays we had. When you have that many around the opposition's box, you should be scoring some goals.'
Overall he thought the team did well but if you miss your chances, you don't win games!
'I thought our overall play was very good. We passed the ball well in the second half and got round the back of West Ham. We created a few good chances but, unfortunately, we missed them.'
