Michel's Girona continues in search of that showy game that hooks his fans. The coach wants his team to be the protagonist in the games and, for now, he is achieving that, but he is forgetting an even more important aspect in football: the punch and the goal. The Girona block has been characterized by having more ball possession than its five rivals to date, although the results obtained have not been as expected. Because possession, without verticality and poison, does not give points. The people of Girona were able to beat Amorebieta and draw against Las Palmas, but they currently have three defeats: Ponferradina, Sporting and Málaga. Precisely against the Berciano block the possession ceiling was touched with 63.6 percent and it fell 2-1.
Lots of possession, little fun. Because the joys come from the good results, the victories. And Girona, this course, is not obtaining excessively. Yes, he is managing to have the ball for longer than his opponents, although he still has to take it to the rival area. Of course, fortune is not smiling too much because, without going any further, against Sporting he deserved a little more for the great scoring chances he generated. But it is missing at specific moments. It is true that In five games he has scored four goals, although that has not reached him. It is time to take a step forward and there are players who must be more vertical, such as Álex Baena, Samu Saiz, Borja García and Aleix García.
In addition, another aspect that is passing an excessive bill in recent meetings to Michel's Girona are the disconnections and the lack of forcefulness in defense. In the last three duels he has an average of two goals conceded per game and it's something that puts a slab in your backpack. The Girona dressing room wants to fight for important things this season and has a lot of room for improvement. Of course, on the way he cannot continue to score points. The first task, which is to have more possession than the rival, is achieved. Now he must make this control of the ball in danger zones and take advantage of the opportunities. So mastering possession will make sense.
