I found this to be concerning.
Christiansen didn't feel his players were focused tonight. Particularly frustrated with the chance Sharp had at the end of the first half.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) October 27, 2017
At the risk of sounding like a know-it-all, isn’t it his job to get them focused? And if they’re not paying attention to him, then he’s got some very big problems.
This team has talent, but I just do not understand some of the decisions that he makes. And when he says he’s “furious,” as Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post quotes him as saying, well, that’s not helpful. He’s the boss. Don’t get angry, fix the problem.
