To see or not to see

At last the secret of why Leicester City are doing so badly appears to be out, the manager seems to be suffering from delusions.

The problem is revealed on the Teamtalk.com website where Levein says City don't deserve to be in the bottom three and that 'anybody who has watched our matches recently will be of the same opinion as myself that a on a lot of occasions we are doing 90% of things right.'

Well I've watched six of the last seven League matches and believe if we carry on with the present formula we'll be relegated and if we'd done 90% of things right we'd have won four of those seven matches and drawn one for 13 points instead of the two we really collected.

Of the things we did wrong in the seven games I mentioned there's the following:

a) We only scored four goals, less than a goal a game.

b) We conceded 11 goals, seven more than we scored.

c) We hardly capitalised on any free-kicks or corners.

d) We continually crossed hopeful high balls to the edge of the box with no realistic chance of winning them.

e) Our general standard of shooting even when we had chances was abyssmal.

f) We always fielded players out of position.

g) We never fielded our best team.

h) Our tactics were bafflingly unsuited to the situation.

I could elaborate at great length, or even extend the list, but the above represents a fairly significant number of things which would mostly have to be right in any game to have a reasonable expectation of success.

Even on Levein's numbers, if you accept the above list, that means City, in Levein's view, did 72 things correctly. I don't think so and neither does the League table suggest they did.

Even if you accept half the list (like a,b,c,e for instance which are probably incontestable) his remarks just don't stand scrutiny.

And why is that important?

Because if, when you are doing badly, you fail to accept or recognise what is wrong, then how do you put it right?
