Use your ****ing right foot bryan, come on.
This is why he’ll never be worth as much as Watkins / Benrahma were (fabulous player, but can’t be that one footed at that high a level)

.......and (cough) Marcondes who presumably escapes scapegoat duty this weekend.
I gave Goode the benefit of the doubt as when I first saw him against Oxford in a pre season friendly I thought he looked poor, thought he might improve but clearly not at the right standard for us at this level

I said it before the injuries, our squad depth isnt good enough. Add that into the knackered players from last season and its a recipe for disaster.
Wouldn't explain why we'd jump so drastically in performances over the past two matches.......we've changed formation but the wrecking ball was the 1st half curtain raiser imo.

Get in! When Forss is in there’s never any doubt about the outcome.

Agree, the starting formation and line up has killed us here.

Couldnt have done any worse. **** me, some of you have to dig the poor lad out when he isnt even playing.
Tbf I've never really commented on him and think he's been played out of his natural position his entire career with us which makes our signing of him seem somewhat strange. Not really his fault he hasnt kicked on here.

But he wouldnt have made any difference today.

I cant remember word for word what TF said following the Preston capitulation but it was something along the lines of it NEVER happening again .......well it has !?
If somebody had offered us 2 draws from this weeks away games most people would have taken them I guess ? We have an extra point , BUT it is very concerning just how porous our defence has become & it needs correcting quickly !

Shame they got a third or I’d fancy us now. Having Jensen in there makes a big difference.

its proper sickening how different this 2nd half is,,,,,,,,,if only tf had the nous to play 4 3 3 first half instead of experimenting with our chances of promotion this season with that fkin defensive crap formation that no one in our team can play

Back to back trips of some distance while Stoke's second home game in succession. Not an excuse but must have some effect.

No excuse. As @jlove was telling us, Stoke played 30 mins of their game midweek with 10 men. They should be the tired ones, not us.

Stoke have stepped back and letting us play knowing we've got little to worry them. Same as many games last season.

Looking FAR better in this second half. Unfortunately Stoke can now afford to play a 6-4-0 formation.

Yep, but not sure what he was doing on the right touchline just now. He needs to be in the centre

We do seem too thin in numbers. Surely Janvier was better than Goode!! Could be a long season here.
