    Players have to be right up for games from the start. From the commentary it sounded like we were not ready. If the OP thinks the warm-ups was relaxed and casual - that is relevant. If the relaxed nature of the warm-up was part of a plan - well that needs looking at.
    I would have thought that is far more about what happens between warm-up and going back out for the start of the game. The teamtalk; and we have absolutely no way of knowing that.

    And nothing like the analogy to the Spurs game.
    Only in that we were well beaten, and that comes from a number of causes, not just one.

    Well I still don't think my post was irrelevant drivel and yes, it was because the half-hearted warm-up did strike me as a big deal such that l that I made a very rare post.Normally things I feel strongly about are well covered by other NSC posts, but I hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere else and thought it worth a mention. I love the Albion and Gus, but this was wrong. After that warm up I said to my son before the kick off we've lost this..and I went on to see the second biggest defeat I've seen the Albion suffer (worst was 2-8 to Bristol Rovers). I was upset at the display and think some of it stemmed from the attitude set in the warm up. Having watched the albion for 50+ years I still maintain that it was a notably aimless warm up, but I never said it was the only reason - my OP also mentiioned team formation and selection.

    It is what it is called - a warm-up. You get players physically and mentally focused. Mental preparation does not just come from the final words from the manager.

    Only in that we were well beaten, and that comes from a number of causes, not just one.
    No-one has said it was the only cause - those are your words.
