Getting a bit fed up of our commentators banging on every game with the 'can the opposition sustain this', like we're some unrelenting attacking force, when pretty much every game they do when teams set up this way against us.

Oh dear this is awful. We are being given a lesson in tactics. Michael O Neill does one on TF every time

It's been poor, but what does anyone expect after that demoralising goal? That is very hard to recover from, especially against a team like Stoke. I'm just hopping mad with Raya -- there are no excuses for that.

Yeah, Barnsley & Coventry managed to keep it up quite comfortably, the I follow commentary is always rubbish.

This is exactly the type of game Stoke wanted... this could be a very long afternoon.
Or a short one. Depends on how much sleep you've had and your tolerance levels.

ZERO service for Toney. What are Meubo and Ghoddos doing ??

We’re just a very average side at the moment, with a troubling tendency of gifting stupid goals. Difficult to see who’s going to step up and drive the team forward today.

We look awful, so bad at the back, every ball seems to put our players under pressure.

This would already have been a tough enough match, without gifting them.

With their high press, we are going to be caught out again with these short passes between the back 4 plus always putting Janelt under pressure.

Stoke have us in their pocket, couldn’t have gone better. Normally they kill the game and try to grab one form a set piece. Giving them the goal after 20 seconds now it’s just a walk in the park,

I was happy with the starting 11 but now we have the wrong 11 out there to cope with this. I just hope we don’t let another in before the 65th minute and it’s not too late when we make the changes.

We're tactically pretty poor. No plan b. Teams seem to have us worked out now. Fingers crossed we grow into this.

I thought during the week Michael O'Neill would have too much knowledge for Thomas. I wish it wasn't the case but O'Neill not for the first time has got his tactics spot on. We simply don't do tactics, we have a lovely style of football which is pleasing on the eye but there isn't in depth analysis. O'Neill has dropped Fletcher, targeted Janelt, overloaded the midfield and added some cyanism. They're well drilled as we have just come along for a kickabout. We don't need to do anything over the top, but we do need to add a tactically aware coach to what we already have to bring us to the next level.

Wow that counter was horrific, Stoke got 19 men behind the ball as soon as Toney touched it, how are we going to score here?

Can anyone explain what “playing the percentages” means in plain English please? Every time that commentator says that I want to smash the TV in.

We've got a ton of analysts, coaches, scouts etc we need to work out a different system to use against pressing 5-3-2s instead of being totally wedded to the current one.

Beginning to look a tad like they are going to bottle it again.

We're not working hard enough or quick enough.. Giving stoke too much time to set up the ramparts

Reid golden chance with a free header from the corner - should've at least hit the target
