    We’ve been bad, but imagine watching Birmingham all season. Get a free kick anywhere near the opposition half and it’s lump it into the box. Get a throw in within 60 yards of the by line and lump it into the box. Sad thing is it’s much more effective currently.

    Hope defence holds strong.

    I must be watching a different game. Thought we played well. No clear chances, but only to be expected when we have frodo baggins up front

    Put some pace on with 25 mins left & we can win this. Wilks on for Thiam & Schmidt up front. Game is there to be won. Williams has put two great balls in, but no one on the end of them. Radlinger cool as a cucumber.

    What a poor game. Terrible advert for the Championship. Not had a sniff.

    Poor first half.

    Positives
    1) Ben Williams has done ok and out a couple of decent balls in.
    2) We look ok passing the ball around at the back.
    3) Have kept possession well.
    4) Birmingham don’t look like creating anything except for set pieces.

    Negatives
    1) Anderson keeps giving away needless free kicks which is giving them a chance to put balls in to the box.
    2) McGeehan keeps giving the ball away.
    3) Services to the forwards has been rubbish. Chaplin’s done nowt but he’s hardly had a pass!
    4) Thiam, Bahre and Thomas have been very poor.
    5) We struggle defending set pieces.
    6) we don’t have anyone big enough or aggressive enough to attack balls that come into the box.

    I’d give it 10 mins to see if we start playing better and then make changes if not. I’d bring styles and Wilkes on and take Bahre and Thomas off.
