But don’t you think perhaps Canvey need to make even more luck than other teams? If you play with at least two players who are in a league above their ability, you need to make extra luck. If you don’t have any other tactic for free-kicks, corners, goal kicks (or even throw-ins) than hit it hard and hope, you need to make extra luck. If there is no one in the team who can talk to the others, to direct and inspire them, you need to make extra luck.
So like I say, Canvey were unlucky in the second half today. But isn’t it about time we started to take control of our own fortune or are we never to return to the glory days of the past 10 years?
