It's in the title really. Going in to half time one down is a reason to be cheerful for me, as the "I want to see more from you!" team talk usually results in my team destroying them in the second half.
If only I could get them to play proper like in the first half too. Does anyone else find this?
Team talks cause all kinds of appalling effects if you get them wrong. If I ever use the "You can win this" team talk to start a game I'll be guaranteed to see an appalling first half performance and be at least a goal down at half time.
