Sousa Disappointed Not To Win

Sousa Disappointed Not To Win

Paulo Sousa said he was disappointed not to win today's game at home to Blackpool after the game ended 0-0.

After a slow start for the Swans, we began to dominate possession and did so for the majority of the game but yet again we found it difficult to create good goal opportunities.

Craig Beattie had a penalty appeal rejected from the referee, Dyer had a chance after coming off the bench and Darren Pratley went close in the final minutes to giving us all three points.



b>Sousa said:



I>'I'm very disappointed not to win after dominating the match,' said Sousa.

'We have had opportunities in recent matches to score two or three goals but I am happy with only one if we can keep a clean sheet but today we were unable to score.

'Our mentality is always to win games but sometimes our opponents make it very hard for us.

'We are working hard on new moves during training so that we can improve our game and the players are becoming used to adapting to different opponents and their styles of play.

'I thought we should have had a penalty when Craig Beattie was brought down as I had a good view of it but the referee saw it differently.

'Managers now recognises that we play good football here at Swansea and that is something we are very proud of.'

I agree with Paulo Sousa when he says that the Swans dominated but he wants to sit down and think what he wants. Does he want mid table mediocrity or challenging for promotion. The setup of the Swans team at the moment is not going to get us goals. A rethink of his tactics and personnel is an urgent necessity before the games left to play get too few. At this rate we will draw the majority of matches--our defence is excellent but the longer it goes the more pressure will come onto Tate and co. to deliver clean sheets. I dread to think what will happen if we leave an early goal in. There is no fire power at all at the moment. 9goals in 14 is terribele. Come on Paulo admit it--you are happier not to lose rather than go all out to win. Stop pulling the wool over our eyes--we pay your wages.
