Manager Tim Sherwood has insisted that there is a clear determination from him and the players to pick up the result we all want this weekend against Swansea City.
With our position in the table, losing streak in the Premier League, wibbles about who signed who, what is our best team and can anybody take a corner or pass forward, Sherwood told the Official Site today that there was huge belief on the training pitch at Bodymoor Heath that we would soon turn this around.
‘I thought we played well against Chelsea the weekend – but couldn’t get the result. Now we can’t feel sorry for ourselves. It’s about dusting ourselves down and moving on to the next one against Swansea this weekend. I was encouraged with a lot from the Chelsea game – we went to Stamford Bridge and matched the champions.’
He went on to say that we retain our belief in our quality even though the players are naturally down about the position we find ourselves in (again) this year.
‘We have belief. Obviously not winning games doesn’t breed a lot of confidence. But it’s encouraging for me how positive the boys are. They realise they can match teams like Chelsea and we have to take into the next game, which is very important. We go into the game with plenty of desire and determination. But we do need to get that extra confidence boost which three points brings.’
It’s very much getting to the stage where we might as well just say we were excellent and we go again and that’s unfortunate because the signs are there everynow and then, Tim just has to work on a way of making those signs last 90 minutes – starting with the right selections.
