Moyes, please follow the Yoda Principle

Comments (4)

Yoda says, ''Do or do not, there is no try''! Here is a largely very good and positive article from Moyes re: targeting the Uefa Cup Final and Champions League qualification.

I am very happy about this, much more encouraging than targeting 40 points or mid-table! However, as seen against Man Utd especially and others like Arsenal and Chelsea, I wish he could inspire a bit more confidence than saying we will 'try' to do well against them. To me, it hints at a little too much respect. Got to have a right good go and be aggressive for 95 minutes and not capitulate out of fear and respect for them.... Go for it Moyesy!

(I'm Bloody happy overall BTW, just would be ecstatic if we could turn over the 'big four' more often... and what better time to up our game than Chelsea at 'The Bridge' on Sunday!)

When?s the last time we defeated the big 3?

hopefully we dont press the self destruct button on sunday with neville/jag in midfield, lescott passing a ball to drogba, hibbert given a chance to throw two legs at lampard, stubbs hoof to yak .... need to find my optimism.

Beat Arsenal last season in the hail on the AJ goal.

Drew Chelsea the last game of the season and drew Man U at Old Trafford.

I would like us to turn the ?big 4? over more regular too, but isnt that the ultimate goal? Moyes is trying to bridge that gap and we have had a good go at them in recent years. Last season we took 4 points from the RS, beat Arsenal and drew with Chelsea. We also led against both Man U and Chelsea.

The day we start regularly competing and beating these teams is the day we are one of them!

Neil, You are dead right, my post is prompted because I think we have the ability, but have lacked the belief to complete the job. The most glaring example of this was the home game Vs ManU towards end of last season...2-0 nil up with over an hour gone only to lose four goals in the last twenty odd minutes! It seemed clear they could smell our colllective fear (players and fans), it was like a red rag to a bull and we duly capitulated. For the top sides, the inner belief is a big part of their ability to win matches, I hope we are finally getting that winning mentality and that we keep it!
