This team had an on and off balance last season. They struggled scoring more goals against opponent’s which was as a result of lack of strikers to penetrate the opponents defense.
Tema Manhean were more skillful in handling the ball but that wasn’t enough to score goals. They focused more on enjoying the game than scoring. The team had the ability to work their way to the top of the table but it seems players concentrated on playing skillful hockey than a competitive game.
Management of the team should work on scoring more goals this season. Scoring one goal at the end of every game is not a tactic that can bring good result. Their style of play should transcend to meaningful ones if they want to stay competitive.
Building a team from the scratch to play this season’s game wouldn’t be of any help to the team. They can train new ones but should continually build upon the old ones they have.
The team has a bright future and is likely to provide the nation with some wonderful players some time to come.
