Merton 1-7 wallington wanderers

Very bad day today, despite starting off the better side.
First day 10-15 minutes we played very well, on and off the ball. Moving the ball around and keeping the ball on the floor.
We created a few chances, but didn’t make the most of the good opportunities.
We gave away a sloppy free kick in our half and wallington took advantage and took a 1-0 lead. Less than 2 minutes later another free kick, another goal.
We then had a mad 10 minutes and ended up being 5-0 down.
We finally found our feet and settled down back into the game, grabbing a consolation goal through Jamie.
We played some good stuff at the beginning of the 2nd half, causing wallington some problems. We gave away a sloppy penalty, which they brought their keeper out especially to take it. Respect at its highest!
He missed the penalty, but the follow up was put away by an oncoming striker.
They stretched their lead to 7-1 towards the end.
Another penalty given away, but this time George saved the spot kick.
Apart from 10 minutes we didn’t do too badly.
Dissapointing day today, one that promoted questions.
Heads up .. let’s go again (again!)
