Moment Of Madness Cost Us

Moment Of Madness Cost Us

Steven Reid has urged his colleagues to stop shooting themselves in the foot in league matches.

Pretty blunt really, but perfectly understandable given the way our last few games and our form have gone.

Speaking to wba.co.uk Reid also said that Goran Popov had apologised the players as well as the fans in the Odemwingie sent tweet.

'At the start of the second half we shot ourselves in the foot and we were up against it with ten men against a team with the pace and power of Tottenham. In recent weeks we've been shooting ourselves in the foot by going one and two down which makes it difficult. Goran's let us down with the red card, he's apologised and he's let us down, so what more can I say? I can't stress how difficult it is when you go down to ten men. It's just a moment of madness and it happens, but as I say we can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot like that. We need to give ourselves a better opportunity to stay in the game.'

Reid does add that the dressing room is still together, everybody realises the mist can descend at points and it's just something you make sure never happens again. But still there were positives we can take and build on from the first half because they know at 11 v 11 we were more than capable of getting something from the game with how we were playing.

Just seems like one thing after another at the moment, tough spell for Clarke with both on pitch and off pitch antics - but with him still learning it's a process he has to go through.
