Most of the passes are in our half where it is quite difficult to score from, which is the purpose of the game not the number of passes you can make at the back.

Yes, but possession is 'king' if you can hurt other teams with 'possession', if they can't get hold of the ball, they get frustrated and 'lash out',
you limit their possession, so limit the number of goal scoring opportunities, you cause 'fatigue' as they have to chase the ball and mentally it's fatiguing. So much more.

Possession is good if you have players at the back that are of the caliber of Man city and Liverpool etc,we don’t,so many of the goals we concede are from cock ups by trying to keep possession at the back when our priority should be to get ball to our forwards el pronto.

Maybe we should use the possession game once we go a goal or 2 up but just attack like fuck until then with our firepower

Now that is an interesting point, under Joka
For the first 15 minutes in matches we attacked
Relentlessly to get the first goal. Then it
Was possession all the way.

This is what I'd like to see. The less often we go 1 down before attempting to break down 11 men camping in their 18 yard box the better.

passes don't win games, shots do.

We need to get the ball to our forwards who can then shoot, that should be the main purpose of our passing.

At the moment we seem to be passing for the sake of it. By the time the ball gets to a forward, he is surrounded by 2 or 3 of the opposition and can't shoot.

Yesterday and vs Forest we have been stymied by exceptional goalkeeping performances but nevertheless there's just not enough urgency in our possession.

There goalkeeper seemed good because our keeper is the opposite of that.  The WBA keeper made some routine saves that you would expect any decent keeper to make.
