Didn't though did he.

In fact i thought it was a foul but some refs might not give it and we are away on a counter.

Yep he wasnt great and needs a rest but im not going to stoop to the levels some of you are.
Erm, they scored. It was only because he drifted offside by a foot.....

95% would’ve given it. It was so obvious.

“Stoop to the levels,”

He was poor and has been very poor. We’ve moved up a level and he isn’t at the races.

No harm in being truthful.

He’s always had potential but has he ever been that good? As other people have said we are at a different level now and play football that he just can’t seem to keep up with. Would get into some championship sides but shouldn’t be in ours unfortunately.

Fosu has to be selected ahead of Canos - too many fouls given away in dangerous situations. I like Canos but he seems light years away from the player that joined us in previous seasons.

Good for you mate, cos he is nowhere near as bad as Marcondes, yet he seems to get away with criticism we hardly strung any passes together and hardly won any 2nd balls from what i have seen of us so far we are a shadow of the slide that we were, yet again Rico Pinnock and Raya were the players that got us out of the sh*t, anyone that thinks we are a top six side, not from what i have seen so far, for their goal Canos put the challenge in, it failed . And would have been castigated on here if he had let his man go. Stop blaming the usual scapegoats. We as a team are nowhere near as to what we should be.

All of a sudden we look majorly short of wide players who can worry the opposition and positively influence the game.

No you’re right, he cost us two not one..nearly managed all three though.

Due to work I had to watch the match at 9 - after I knew the result. Before starting the second half I saw that the Canos thread was trending so guessed he’d done something - no idea if it was good or bad (it’s Sergi), but I watched him carefully when he came on. What I saw was that he had positive effect on the team to start with. His passing was crisp, he found space and we seemed to go up a gear. Then when they scored from the zone he was marking his confidence went. Passes went astray and he was indecisive when he got the ball. And then the GPG gets on his back and he’s the scapegoat. IMHO in the last two games he’s the player who has brought a creative spark - yes he looks like a headless chicken sometimes, but with Rico he brings a cutting edge to the left that we need. Get off his back guys.

I don't think it matters if we're "on his back" or not. But he really needs to get much much better on the ball - sooooo wasteful at the moment.

The biggest issue Canos has at the moment is when we’re on the defence - he can’t stop giving fouls away in dangerous positions. Could have cost us more than it has already.

There’s a quality player in there, and I’m sure most of it is down to the injuries he’s picked up previously, but we just cannot afford to bring him on in tight games at the moment.

Either start him, or bring him on when we’re comfortable, but not when we’re a goal up with 20 mins to go - in that situation he’s just a liability at the moment.

It’s just a quality thing. Lots of huff and puff, but not up to the level we need if we’re going for promotion. Who knows, rest him and play Fosu for a bit and he might come back in to the team with some focus, but I’m not sure he’s ever really been that good sadly.

Canos needs to play on the right and Bryan needs to play on the left (if they play together). They're both so one footed they cut back and stop anyway. Ivan is obviously good in the air, so lets just get those wingers playing as wingers and get those crosses in.

Oh, and Canos isn’t an inverted winger either. He hasn’t a clue as to how to play that role. He plays right wing or not at all.
This really, only time Canos should be playing is if Bryan isn't. Ghoddos and Fosu for the left wing Bryan and Sergi for the left. Sergi tries but he's never been good on the left. His best games have always been on the right.

Well this is down to the head coach, I don't understand TF's team selection, he seems to have a blind spot when it comes to Canos and Marcondes ?

In the interest of balance, he made as many fouls when we were attacking as well.

Problem is we play with 2 wingers Nick, and we tend to sub these positions during games too.

So unless we are going to play Bryan on the right, Bryan on the left, and also bring Bryan on as sub we’re short.

Sorry I meant on the defence - as in when we have a lead we're trying to hold onto. I think at the time he came on, we as a team had made relatively few fouls - that changed once he came on, both in attacking and defensive positions, and a majority of those fouls came directly from him.

Surely the coaches need to iron this out of him. There is a time and place to commit fouls, there is no point in fouling when there is little danger.

He was only a sub when he was the old Sergi, because we had Said, Ollie & Maupay. Sorry but he isn't good enough for the level we want to be playing at. We will not gain promotion with Canos & Marcondes playing a majority of the games. We needed a quality winger when Said went, Ghoddas may come good but I doubt it will be in his current role.

And i respect that opinion.

But they didnt score ;) He was offside so hitting the net didnt matter at all.

What are you going on about. They scored one, he put a challenge in................ The marking in the middle was ****.

Some want to see what they want to see.

If Canos is keeping out Fosu because Canos is better defensively then Fosu must get confused about which way we are kicking all the time.
Yet, rather strangely Fosu played at right back in a game against a prem side where we kept a clean sheet. 🤔

Yeah, but to be fair, that's a different scenario than playing up front and performing one's defensive duties.

Being lazy, what's the Canos main findings then ?
That he would be better suited to a wing back role. He rates second to JDS in ground made with the ball and presses well but is wasteful with passes and shots in advanced positions.

I love Sergi for his history with us, and I hate that he's clearly struggling for form. But he is struggling for form and I've not seen enough to warrant a start. I know that many will shoot me down but I'd rather see us accommodate Forss and Toney on the pitch. I'm convinced Toney will still score a lot of goals cutting in from slightly wider areas (see Campbell at Stoke) and we all know what Forss can do.

Not exclusively Canos' fault today but he was very much a passenger, although there are plenty of those at the moment.

Watching the the yellow card incident unfold was just depressing.

We should go to Shrewsbury in January, take back Zamburek and loan them Canos. Seriously.

He wasn’t just a passenger. He was heavily involved in negative moments.

If Sergi was a cat, he would have used up 10 of his 9 lives now. He must realise he's on borrowed time.

Also when he was free with space and time to pick out a cross and then proceeded to smash the ball against the Wycombe defender and claim a pen...

Yes. The other moment was the perfectly weighted ball to the back post where he was waiting. All the time in the world to line up a volley shot or a pass back across goal. Decided to side foot the ball out for a throw in on the far side. Shocking.

Had managed to erase that from my memory thanks for the reminder and the visual flashback :(

I don't think anyone expected him to match Benrahma but on what he's done so far he's not even a third of the player Said was at the moment... Might still be relatively young but when you think of the last games he's offered next to nothing. Whilst there are plenty of players not adding much right now Sergi is certainly the weakest link.

It’s a far cry from the Sergi who scored the worldy against Reading all those years ago.

you can see JDS just looking away after he does a great run and pass to canos for him to balls it up again......he must think why the feck do i bother.....its like having the worst kid in the class in your school team who no one wants to pass to but they have to cos hes unmarked all the time.......you just give up in the end and try and do it yourself instead

He’s lost his pace so can’t go past his man. He knows this, so doesn’t try to beat his man anymore. Add that to lacking in strength and being poor with his passing and it’s not a good mix.

Dreadful performance from a player who has been very poor overall this season. I would rather have Dom Thompson our there currently tbh, at least we might get a couple of crosses into the box (and no I don’t really want DT playing left wing either but it shows how bad the situation is with Sergi at the moment)

Yep- really showed up how much pace he seems to have lost since the injury. Looked like he was running in treacle.
