A goalless draw represented a decent return for Robins, who came into the game without a point and with 10 goals conceded in his first two matches.

But the new Town manager felt there was more there for the taking.

He said: "I thought we controlled it, in fairness. I think we tried to pass; they didn't try to pass it.

"They came for a point and got a point. We tried to get all three of them.

There's a little bit of a lack of confidence and the surface doesn't help when you try to pass it but we tried.

"We had about seven shots on target and some good opportunities to score but we didn't take any of them. That's why it's only a point and not three."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
