Not interested in heroic failure says Mick

Not interested in heroic failure says Mick

For many a home defeat to Tottenham isn't something to get too down hearted about.

As fans we obviously want to win every game, but realistically we know that the way the Premier League has become, there are certain games that you take as a bonus and do not really rely on taking anything from.

Tottenham, considering they were in the Champions League last season and will once again be competing for the top four are one of those matches.

But for an hour or so we were well in the game and sometimes, when you get the chance to take an unexpected result you have to take it.

In previous years we did this rather successfully, taking points that we didn't expect to get, but crucially losing points that we should have taken.

McCarthy is desperate to not see a repeat of previous seasons and who can blame him.

For us to learn we have to take our chances when they arise.

"We played well but we lost and I don`t want to be that team we were two years ago when we had heroic failure.' McCarthy told the Express & Star.

He added: "When you`re playing well and having as much of the game as the opposition, you need to take your chances or create one you can get a goal from.

"For 70 minutes we were right in it and if we`d have scored when we had the chances, we could have nicked something."



He concluded: "In those last 20 minutes we were made to look a bit daft and not as good as we`d played in the first 70."

Well I have to say I would rather win and play badly, than play well and loose. The only teams I am fearful of in this league this year are the two Manchester teams, they seem to be ripping teams apart for fun. Hopefully we can stop them in their tracks!! Well I am an optomist!!

Rather play well and lose, SS, for if you play well the results will come, the table at the end of the season rarely lies, and if it does, only as to a handful of points at most, translating into one or two placings. If you play badly you must first wait for that to change, which may be a long time, before hoping for the results to start coming in. I am not too eager about beating the Man clubs at all. By the way the results against Blackburn and Fulham have gone, already we can say that that means the points difference between them and WW compared to last season will be six and three in WW's favour come May 13th. These are the teams we must beat, or at least not lose against. A win will mean 6 points difference, a draw maintaning the distance. I too am an optimist, but not enough of a one to hope to be able to beat the mathematics!!

LovesW I want us to play well all season, I was more on about the odd game here and there. But you are right, these are the teams we need to beat, if we get results against top teams that has to be a bonus. It was the tow wigan games that threw me, how could we beat top four teams and then play so badly against Wigan. And also if we play well the reuslt will come I am hopeful that we can get the performances going in the right direction starting Saturday. I just want us safe well before May is even thought of!!

Oh, I see, SS- in the sense of the odd game, granted; I took your intended meaning in the sense of a run of matches, a number of consequitive 'bad days at the office'. I watched most of the QPR-NU match. Apart from some flashes of brilliance from Shawn W-P, I was not impressed by either team. There should be no problem beating Rangers IF we play like we did in the first two games.
