Coventry almost adds a second.

Benny 10+ goals this season. His technique is awesome.

To be honest, this game is probably a good argument for why Lingard is worth pursuing. Though it's probably accentuated by Bowen's absence. No real sprinters other than Antonio when we break.
Exactly so.

Our build-up play is neat, nice, and incisive, but it all grinds to a halt before any final ball to a man breaking through and ready to shoot.

The solution: we have movement and runners for the men in deeper midfield, and they need to work on there being movement and runners for the final ball as well.

That means wingers and fullbacks and quite frankly everyone working a lot harder and being a lot more alert and ambitious in how they advance up the field.

I maintain that a relatively small amount of goals result from the kind of flair and quality that WHU cannot currently afford.

If you watch the top teams, a relatively large amount of the goals result simply from a larger number of players driving forward hungrily and intelligently into space and into the box, looking to finish things off.

While I've been typing this, Benrahma has just scored the kind of flair goal some clubs can't afford. It's great, but you can't rely on it to win week in week out.

What you should rely on is seeing several people streaming forward without the ball but with urgency, pace and intent, on every attack.

If they can train that into the players, then 50% to 80% of all our nice breaks forward from midfield will turn into genuine scoring opportunities.
