One known fact is we play better when the opponent has a high line, we perform better when a team is really giving us a go. I think the players give it their absolute all in the top meetings, whilst playing versus a "smaller" opponent, we seem to lack the motivation to perform at the same level.This is how I’ve been viewing it as well. More often than not Ole’s team turns up against the big teams.
This is a trait that we have had on and off for years. We often worry more about games like Norwich away instead of Chelsea away for example.
It’s better to prove yourself against the stronger sides and then gradually change the mindset of the players to keep their motivation for the ‘smaller’ fixtures.
Again this is where another transfer window will help Ole massively, especially if we make another solid set of signings like we did in the summer. I honestly believe this side could really start kicking on with 3 more quality signings.
