Was at Ballyskeagh today, the most cold and miserable stadium in the Irish League, to witness a Linfield performance which was just as cold and miserable. Sadly, it was a Linfield performance which has become the norm, rather than a blip.
Midway through the second-half, with Distillery 1-0 up, I overheard someone say “This is one way traffic”
If it was “one way traffic”, it was a traffic jam going at 1 mph
There was no urgency, no imagination, nobody making runs, nobody using the ball well.
If Distillery’s keeper makes a series of world class saves, you hold you hands up. All the saves he made were saving practice. Any ‘pressure’ Linfield had was possession, but not much being done with it.
I could cut and paste blogs from past matches. That’s how repetitive it is.
I’ve stuck up for (2003) and praised (2006) David Jeffrey in the past, but I am losing patience, and i’m not the only one.
Crowds are down. If it wasn’t for the fact I have a season ticket, i’d probably not bother with the game against Dungannon on December 15th.
The season is still retrievable. There’s still three trophies to play for. In ten days time, it could be just two. We will go into a home match against Crusaders as underdogs. That is the reality of the situation.
Usual phototaking arrangements at Ballyskeagh. Uninspired, dull, average at best. The photography, very much matched the football.
