It's got to be more tiring playing without the ball than if you're dominating possession. You have to run like a motherfucking dog and if your closing down or tracking runners fails for a fraction of a second you can give up a goal.We are good enough ffs
The reason our 2nd half stats are poor is because we're usually in front by then and are sitting back on our lead, as per instruction. 10+ points we've thrown away by sitting off of lesser opponents in the second half of matches and letting them take the initiative - games where we look much the better side when not playing bullshit tactics that keep getting punished
People think Mourinho's style is low-risk football on the basis that if you don't have the ball, you can't make mistakes with it. Someone like Pep thinks the more you have of the ball, the less chance the opposition have to score. I know which strategy i prefer.
