Jęja, žaš ętti aš glešja okkur aš Rafa er aušvitaš alveg jafn pirrašur og viš eftir laugardaginn. Hann er ķ vištali viš Echo, žar sem hann (mišaš viš hans takmörkušu yfirlżsingar hingaš til) gagnrżnir leikmennina harkalega:
“Everyone must understand these kinds of games are important. It’s acceptable to play at the same level as Chelsea and lose, but it’s not acceptable to play Fulham, whom we know we are better than, and come away with nothing.
“It was as though we didn’t understand the importance of the game in the first half. Only in the second was there a response, and then I felt it was a question of time whether we would score, but their keeper made a lot of saves.
“Last season we made a lot of mistakes and I thought we were learning from them. We’ve started strongly in other away games and I didn’t expect to see us play like this again after last year.
“This is our first defeat away this year and we can’t afford to make the same mistakes in future.
It’s important the players under-stand we can’t approach games in this way.”
The performance of the team was bad in terms of the aggressiveness of the players.
Einnig segir ķ greininni aš Darren Potter, Scott Carson, David Raven og Zak Whitbread muni lķklega spila leikinn gegn Crystal Palace į morgun auk nokkurra leikmanna śr ašalhópnum. Žaš er įgętt aš fį leik svona strax eftir hörmungina į laugardaginn og žótt aš leikurinn sé “bara” ķ deildarbikarnum, žį geta sumir leikmenn sżnt aš žaš bśi eitthvaš ķ žeim eftir žessa hörmung.
