Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce was AGAIN left regretting chances that were missed costing us as we lost 2-1 at Sunderland on Saturday.
Gael Givet had given us the lead but two Kenwyne Jones (who had been linked with a move to Rovers) goals saw Sunderland come from behind to win at the Stadium of Light. Allardyce was unhappy with an early goal that was disallowed and also the mistakes that allowed Sunderland back into the match.
Allardyce told Sky Sports: "We thought we had scored a perfectly good goal after just two or three minutes, and then the whole result could have been completely different.
"Then we had our own deficiencies in the way we allowed Sunderland to score, because that was a diabolical piece of defending from us."
However, despite creating enough chances to have won the match Big Sam was bitterely disappointed that missing them again cost us and thinks we deserved at least a point so was again left ruing these missed opportunities.
He added: "From the other opportunities we created I am very disappointed that we haven't at least managed to get a draw, but that is how cruel the Premier League can be.
"We have got nothing from the game when we dominated for long periods. In the end we have missed too many easy chances that we should have converted to get us a draw and it is bitterly disappointing."
New signing Nikola Kalinic was as guilty (probably more so) than anyone of missing chances with the Croatian International missing at least three very good chances, however Big Sam was happy to see him get into the positions that he did even if the finishing was wayward.
We can't keep looking back at matches bemoaning missed chances, if we keep missing chances we'll keep losing match as the Premier League is an unforgiving league!!
