    ..boring. We have gone backwards.

    rigid formation, awful manager who hasn’t a clue where to pick his players. His subs are baffling.

    Relegation battle already. Bring it on….

    Totally agree.
    This tippy tappy stuff might be pretty at times, but it’s highly ineffective, as proved today. Plan B please!

    Football is about scoring goals i think. Not one or two pretty patterns in mid-field.. the only player today to actully run forward with the ball was Helik.

    More possession, more shots, more shots on target, more corners.

    Against a side currently 6th in the league. Yet another game we've played against top half opposition in our horrible run of fixtures to start the season.

    Some of our fans are proper weird.

    So boring to watch. This football doesn’t work at this level with the recruitment style and money willing to spend.

    Think it’s hilarious people comparing this to the dull Struber football. That’s an understatement. It’s Keith Hill part two.

    Not progressing under this manager at all baffling.
    Absolutely no goal threat at all.

    Can totally get criticisms of how we played, too narrow, lack of movement, etc.

    But the only thing baffling about the substitutions was the timing. With a threadbare squad like ours we don’t really have like for like subs. Especially if players at CM or CB are struggling.

    Which player positions frustrated you the most today rather than just making that claim? Context is everything.

    We pretty much completely dominated a team that will finish top ten. Should have won it.

    Whoever lets Woodrow take corners needs sacking it boils my urine it’s pathetic to see styles and odour waiting in the area and our top scorer for the last three seasons nowhere to be seen. If no one else can float a ball into the penalty area then we’re in more trouble than i thought.

    It’s the lesser version of Harry Kane taking the corners for England in the Euros in 2016

    Second half plenty of positives.
    Just lacking that finish .
    Best side out of team in top 6 that's lost only one.
    Players to come back.
    Onwards n upwards.

    Context... spot on.. people looking at the starting lineup and not lowering expectations dramatically need to give their heads a wobble. Dominated a game against 6th in the league with plenty to come in to the side and improve things..

    Threadbare midfield. Palmer and Benson injured, with Halme and Moon busy covering our injured and suspended CBs.

    Oduor left wing is hardly a baffling selection. No matter how many times you repeat it.

    Halme covering a centre half who’s playing right back?

    Played 8 games with a half fit squad against: 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 11th, 13th.

    Averaging a point a game.

    Might not be pretty but at least give them a bit of a chance to work at things.

    That was actually better than I expected today given the injuries and illnesses. I’m reserving judgement on Schopp until he has his best players available.
