    We cant close games out

    bale was definitely at fault for the first goal, the defending for the second was schoolboy crap, think it's more of a mental attitude when the other team up the ante and play with more passion, we simply can't match the commitment and coolheadedness to survive, a fact i'm sure 'arry knows all too well.

    look at all the 'top four' sides, they all have a 'nasty' edge to their game(bordering on dirty play/tactics) which we don't have, sadly.

    • Personally, I put it down to the players' state of mind.
      We need to draft in a "SUPER" Psychologist to untwist their minds and make them hungrier, not complacent.

      Look at the top 4 teams. They keep pushing even if they're 4 goals up, as if their life depends on it - that's being HUNGRY!

      Against Wigan, we did that. Why then can't we continue with such attitude match-in, match-out... It's ridiculous!

    • ery well put Jabba...we definitely need to get nasty with our opponents...especially when we're in front (which is often). So who else do we need in to be nasty (but that has a bit of common football sense...so no more Michael Brown's thank you). I remember Harry talking about getting that Welsh nutter in when he was leaving West Ham...basically said, he's not a nice guy...we need someone like that...but in mid-field (Bellamy)...and we need full backs that can get stuck in (but I guess that's a skill for an age gone by)...now they've got to be swift to track their pacey opposite number...and don't commit (BAE) in hope that the winger will fall over his own feet.

      That is one part of BAE's game that needs improving...then he'll be a complete full back.
