There's definitely goals in this for us, the problem is we still look vulnerable at the back.

yeah but we can sustain it.
we’ll change the front 3 on the 60 minute mark and up it a level.

ok, but don’t get too gobby too soon, exactly what reading and boro said,

If you do it fair play but expect a slight backlash if we do to you what we have down to the let 21 teams that tried it.

We are playing 2-3-5 with the ball. Not sure it’s working we appear to be losing the midfield
Battle.

Ref needs to get to grips with these Barnsley snide tactics, championship deserves better.

Nick a goal soon and then bring Jensen and Fosu on at 60 mins to take us home

Can't remember a more disappointing half than that. Camera was pointing left a hell of a lot.

Some bright spots though whenever we manage to get forward.

Ghoddos with all the time in the world fires off a tame shot.

Is the Barnsley commentary any good anyone?
Unfortunately not. Just turned on for 20seconds and had 2 doing their best Mick McCarthy impressions. ‘You can bet yur bottom dollar that would have gon gainst Barnsley had it been other way. Refs giving us nothing’... shame we can’t have either. First 5mins were bliss...

Really fancied Ghoddos to score there. We're getting there but it's a battle.

Ghoddos from 20 yards has a poor ish shot that the keeper easily saved.

We’ve been pretty poor. The midfield is non existent.

what is frustrating is we are 2nd to every loose ball. Pinnock or Mads win a header it’s Barnsley’s midfield picking it up.

Mbuemo looks a shadow of the player he was last season. Fosu needs to come on at HT. Ghoddos also struggling to make an impact in the middle.

Bryan really doing nothing again. I always find ghoddos struggles agains these teams that play anti football.

I don’t think we should wait until 65 mins.

not feeling the love after that first half :( , lots of lumping it forward, huge gaps in midfield, bryan not on it. Still we know we have it in us, we just need to get going, as we did a little bit towards the end. COYB

No excuse for that. We know how they play. We failed to match their energy from the off.

A collective kick up the backside required.

Get one and we’ll get two.

Scruffy and scrappy!
Barnsley fast on to us, which means that we need to pass the ball on quickly, and not hang onto it as Mbeumo has been doing.

All will come good at 65 minutes and thereafter!

They have a very aggressive press. But we knew that and should have been prepared for it. Hoofing it up to Toney is not a strategy.

Time to sort out once again at half time. Kick some ass and expect a better second half performances !

Really haven't got going this afternoon, Barnsley are suffocating us and we're getting sucked into a really bitty performance. Really need to get on the front foot a bit more, reckon Fosu should come on for Mbeumo who again is looking a little off the pace.

Some more encouraging signs as the half went on I thought, but still pretty disappointing overall. Barnsley have done their homework and made it difficult for us.
I'm expecting one way traffic in the second half and our chances will come. Hopefully they fall to Toney! We haven't shown it, but we are a better team, so this is still there for the taking.

Without Jensen in midfield we have noone to get on the ball. Josh and Ghoddos cant fill this role they disappear for large parts of the game.
Could see from the outset with their high press we would struggle and no surprise they scored.

Very Very poor, Fosu and Jenson second half. Bryan has been hopeless the last 2 games.

Clever tactics from Barnsley. Stop-start, niggly fouls, dragging Ivan into a wrestling match. So no rhythm to our play. Big half-time talk from Thomas... “keep playing not battling” and I can see Barnsley having a man sent off 😉

Lucky their American striker is crap. We could be in trouble when Woodrow comes on.
