There’s little you can do with 10 men when the opposition actually play the man advantage well. They were spreading the play and pressing high when they lost it so our passes had to be hurried or we would give it away in dangerous positions.No we lost because they scored two goals when we were down to 10 men. Which was a result of us completely giving up on any control, sit back and invite pressure. Instead of trying to keep the ball within our ranks, we sat deep in our own box and hoofed the ball forward at any opportunity. We looked panicky and scared. I hoped for a bit more control even down to 10, which I agree is not easy. But look at our squad and compare it to theirs for heaven's sake.
