Home vs. Away Form

Why is our Home form so poor recently?

Recent media reports have suggested that it may be due to the tense atmosphere since Rafa has arrived.

I thought I would look into it:

Man CIty (0-0): We would have taken this result before the game.

Fulham (0-0): Our record vs. Fulham has never been good.

VIlla (8-0): Win!!!!!

QPR (0-1): Weekday game and Rafa rested some players.

Swansea (0-2): defensive mistakes...

I would say that the QPR result was really the only bad one. Swansea was unlucky and I think we will win the away leg and qualify for the final.

What are the possible reasons:

  • Tactics: Team sit back against us at the Bridge: Probably true
  • Fans: The fans do make the Bridge now probably feel like an away ground. I only watch games on tv every week as do not live in London anymore but I definitely do think the away support is more vocal.
  • Complacency: I think most fans would have thought QPR would have been easy. They drew with Spurs and their league table position is not reflective of the squad.
  • Rising up to the Challenge: I think we have faced stronger opposition away recently have risen to it.
Overall: I don't think you can blame any specific issue but I do believe that they all contribute. Fans should probably do what others have been saying: if you don't like Benitez, why not don't sing his name. But booing our players and manager does not help anyone.
