I think early last season, there was uncertainty about our structure and game plan. Players were more worried about making mistakes, not completely knowing where to stand with defensive set ups, players unsure where to lead… which led to many player not committing themselves 100% because they were unsure and didn’t want to make a mistake.
It looked like the players challenged themselves in the second half to commit 100% and don’t get too stressed if they make a mistake regarding our game plan structures. All the focus became about individual effort.
I just hope we don’t fall down this rabbit hole again. Although it looks like it’s going that way.
Hopefully we can bring together the effort and the game plan structures from the very beginning of the season.
