Match Report - 06 Nov 2010, Leeds Modernians Football Club 3rds lost to Leeds City OB
Not really sure what happened here. Although we didn't play well in the first half, and had a very sluggish 20 opening 20 minutes, 1-1 at half time was a very fair reflection of an even match. It looked ours for the taking if we could just raise our game to our normal decent level. Instead, we conceded 2 goals, a tad sloppy but both very well taken, in the space of 5 minutes early in the second half.
What was then really disappointing was the response, or lack of it. Psychologically we seemed to accept defeat, and spent the last half hour or so looking for things, systems, or team mates to blame. Perhaps we need to take a leaf out of Medics book, 2-0 down to us in the cup, and being outplayed and overran by a side 2 leagues below them. Classic implosion territory, but they kept plugging away, never turned in on themselves, and scored 3 goals in the last 10 minutes, thus coming away with a win from a game they had been second best in for 70 minutes.
What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, provided you learn the lessons.
