MM says it is about taking chances.That is hardly profound as no team wins without scoring more goals than the opposition. But in too many games it has been about not making enough chances for the service to an isolated striker has been dire.Blaming the failure to take chances is deflection are for it implies that it is a single problem which once overcome will make everything fine.The reality is that we have been poor all over the pitch and that includes the defence.The only reason our goals against total is low is because we are defensive and play so many players deep. Look where that has got us.I take little comfort from either our goals for or the against column

It's this "We had 67 chances or balls into dangerous areas" crap alarms me, no acceptance that the quality is poor or no ones their.

Talk the talk Micky, but if you lose again please resign.

Purely my opinion but I would have moved him on after the Eastleigh game (have we really improved since then, no) but as he's still here I'll give him until the Chester match. Minimum return would be 5 points to keep him on and I think that's being generous!

Wrexham last week hardly had many chance's,only one really comes to mind and what happened when they did it ended up in the back of the net.

Our shower who according to Mellon(again) had 67 ball's into the area yet again like in other games we've lost to one goal.

OK if you have that many chance's in a game you should be able to put two of them away but we can't we have one forward up front whilst the rest take a sabbatical wandering in the wrong half.

When the midfield and defence move up to the halfway line they have a nosebleed for being that far up the pitch stop and play it back,oh for Morrissey and Nevin.

It's as though they are being told to stay in zones and are gearing the wrath of Micky for straying out of their zones?

The GPS will show where they've been and maybe he's relying too much on it?

They are all professionals, and know how to play.

Leave the GPS on the coach and just tell them to go and do what they need to win it!

There's a place for sports science especially when looking to make marginal gains but when it comes to fundamentals it needs judgement not measurement. Thus far Mickey is coming out on the wrong end of that yardstick

If MM is saying we put 67 balls into the area that's 1 ball roughly every 90 second's.Sorry but I dont remember that many . If that's true it show's how bad our striker's are

Could he have actually said 6 to 7 in his Scottish accent ('6 tae 7') rather than 67?!

I think these interviews are pretty tedious to be honest. That's not a dig at MM as much as the length of time it goes on for, the inane questions he's asked and the fact that, when you're asked the same thing 46 times a season, there's only so much variety you can give in your answers.

Full marks to the club for making them available on YouTube but I'd be happier with an edited down version. Even Sky don't bother giving 10-15 minutes to their superstar Premier League bosses' pre-match interviews and there's a reason for that. Just trim it down to the important bits.
