No Stephen Ireland, no final ball.

Check out this Chalkboard from yesterday's game.

In the whole match, we made one succesful pass into the penalty area. There's nothing around the 'd', nothing down the left hand side - barely anything at all within thirty yards of goal. Compare this to the home fixture against Arsenal, when, inspired by Steven Ireland playing through the middle, we were much better at getting the ball into the box and down both flanks.

Well - you know why that was? "We were lacking a little bit of weight". £100 million spent, and we were lacking weight.

Is it only me, or does anybody else have a problem here?
