What is failure – Part II

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 6:17 am

Seems at the moment that the Japanese NT is a group that is about ready to fall to pieces.

A coach who recently asked his bosses if he should quit (and mentioned it in public), players that just don`t seem capable of playing up to their potential, fans that have given up before the WC has started … it is hard to imagine things being worse for them.

And they got me thinking about failure, and the worst failure imho is a neutered failure.  Losing a game in which you weren`t able to play to your game plan, and never really looked like winning.  Where the other team imposed their game plan, and you scrambled to react to them, without playing to your strengths.

This current Japanese team not only is missing chances, they are also failing to create chances, and are looking like strangers who just met.  Could get ugly.

What is saw of the Aussie loss to the US wasn`t that depressing … chances were missed, shots were taken … it wasn`t one of those neutered losses.
