Our defence was well and truly shocking in 2001-2004 with the likes of Doherty and Richards playing at centre back, whereas King was playing more as a holding midfielder. We also had Sullivan and Keller as our goalies, both were not up to standard.
How is it we go from +15 to -1 in 1 season? It's not just down to the loss of King, because even when fit we've been conceding sloppy goals, largely coming from the goalkeeper. Our defence suffers because they feel they are under more pressure to deal with imminent danger, rather than rely on the goalie to make the save or cut out the cross.
