We never beat Warnock teams, they just never let you get any momentum. That's just the way it is I'm afraid. We had one BIG chance and you just have to take those in these sort of games..Two disappointing performances this week against teams I would hope we would beat at home.
dare I say it... we are missing Said. A lot.
I think we will sort it out. Lots of injuries and game congestion messes with our flow, i think these last few games might have been worth trying 4-4-2 and just doing the basics but who am i to say. Either way i think we will get there, might need to do some business in/out in january, aslong as we keep touching distance with the pack i think we will be up thereBecause we’re not good enough to do that anymore.
Have a listen to Thomas Franks pre match interview lacked his normal excitement before the game you could have almost called how dreadfully boring this game would be after thatCan always tell how we’re going to perform after the first 10 or even 5 minutes , why do we always seem to start so slowly recently? Very hard to pick up the pace of a game when the tempo is verging on soporific at the start !
So he knows how to set up a side. Good ManagementWe never beat Warnock teams, they just never let you get any momentum. That's just the way it is I'm afraid. We had one BIG chance and you just have to take those in these sort of games..
Your watching the game what do you need commentary for??International Break Blues. Not as bad as the last one though. The commentators need to pick it up, too. It is in the job descriptions, surely? Might as well go on Twitter.
Correct. Expect Warnock teams to kill a game and they did. IMO Bryan and Sergi should not start our next game. Bryan was completely ineffectual after looking a tad better in his last game. Please no stats. He contributes little. Sergi has great energy but no end product.Did anybody expect anything else ?
Nobody to fear in this league , we will be fine .
Absolutely spot on regarding Sorensen - I thought he was immense today and after Pinnocks strange last 5 or so minutes I think he was our best centre back today. I had some doubts about him covering for Pontus but a massive bright spot in the last few has been his performances.Outstanding from Mads Bech Sorensen and (aside from a mad minute) Ethan Pinnock too but otherwise, we are far too slow in possession. Players are expected to beat their man from a standing start because the passing is so slow and often telegraphed. It is not going to happen. What we are seeing so far this year is good coaches know they can press Brentford in possession to slow us right down and blunt our attacking threat. Our wide areas are a concern - particularly when our full backs are pinned back like today.
The way our model works we are nearly always a work in progress.Our last three home games have been against form sides near the top and we matched all three. Hard to breakdown Boro today but we knew what to expect from them. We are a work in progress still in what has been a difficult season in every aspect on and off the pitch. I predicted a dog of a game 0-0 and, had we been there, it would have taken several pints of Pride to nullify the effect. We have some easier games after the break, judge us then perhaps.
I thought Natalie was one of the few bright spots todayWe need a new winger who has pace and strength. Actually getting bored of watching now, and this team are not making it exciting watching from home. PS Natalie is easy on the eye but her voice is draining. Can see why I don’t listen to talk sport anymore!!
But who starts our 4 wide players have been useless all season. The most disapointing of the 4 is Bryan, if he had stepped up this season it would have taken the pressure of Ghoddas and Canos. He has been given a rating of 5.4 which I believe was 2 above what it should have been. A top season and he would have been playing premier football next season.Correct. Expect Warnock teams to kill a game and they did. IMO Bryan and Sergi should not start our next game. Bryan was completely ineffectual after looking a tad better in his last game. Please no stats. He contributes little. Sergi has great energy but no end product.
