'I'm still questioning what went wrong' - Younes

Posted on 22 September 2014  - 09:30

Younes Kaboul had no easy explanation for our performance and defeat at home to West Brom on Sunday.


Our newly-appointed skipper conceded ‘it wasn’t good enough’ as we struggled to find any rhythm and to create chances at the Lane.

West Brom played well and took their chance when James Morrison converted a free header from Chris Brunt’s corner in the 74th minute.

Roberto Soldado hit the target with a volley from Younes’ cross but we didn’t seriously test Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster.

“We’re all disappointed after this poor defeat,” said Younes. “We played with a slow tempo and we never looked a threat for West Brom.

“We didn’t create any chances and we were inviting them to try and score. It wasn’t good enough from us.”

Younes said the team would re-focus immediately for a tough week ahead – Forest in the Capital One Cup at the Lane on Wednesday night followed by the first North London derby of the season at the Emirates on Saturday.

“The game on Wednesday is important because we want to win something this season,” added Younes. “Forest are a good side, they are doing well in the Championship and we have to bounce back straight away.”
