This isn’t just tiredness or fatigue something has gone dramatically wrong.

Please get Bryan off at half time.

And that Brentford is how you stop a counter by the way,

I'm taking time out from this. Depressing rubbish. Might switch back on if we equalise but it's a dreadful watch.

Get canos and Jensen off. Jensen hides behind players instead of helping Rico. Canos offers little, has a good game and then non existent for 6. I don’t no why we didn’t strengthen but how can you complain when on such a run, but it’s there for everyone to see.
Two of our better players imo. Dasila for ghoddos, start getting ball out wide, crosses for Forss, not long ball which he isnt winning.

We need to stop playing the ball back to the keeper as they are expecting us to do that and then pressurising all players that Rays can pass to

Major changes at halftime please Thomas , get Dasilva on you’ve got plenty of options of who to take off

Stop this long ball out from the back, we were a passing side where the hell has that gone

I genuinely hope some of the people on this thread aren’t as vile in their day to day lives.

Agree. All teams have the same draining schedule. All between the ears I think. Plenty of confidence on that brilliant unbeaten run - even when we went a goal down, the team had the feeling 'no problem - we can score more than them.' 2 defeats shouldn't shatter confidence, but it's the recent performances that worry me. Even when Leeds had that poor spell last year, they still looked good. We have have had long, poor spells in each of the last 3 games. It's that experience on the pitch we're lacking imo.

We are desperately missing players and when they are back I am confident in this team. But this XI can't hit those levels. We need to find a way to win this and get through this period before we fall too far behind.

And there's been 40 minutes since then where he's been our only half decent player.
Not from what I have been watching. Jensen gets the ball, turns and passes to ......a coventry player....again and again and again. Does he know what shirts we are playing in?

We look unsteady at the back & soft in midfield.
Our tempo is too slow, occasional flashes of what we can do.
Need JDS on for the 2nd half, plenty of time for us to win this one.

Bed wetting coming up.

It’s like last season all over again, sure certs to win the league, the best team outside the top division and in the blink of an eye the worst teams in the league have put us in a box. The same old press and tactical fouling and we are like a bunch of schoolboys again,

We didn’t have an answer to it last year and we haven’t this year either. I guess the question is can we please drop out of the top six now please as we don’t need another one of those on our records thanks.

At least we are getting it over with early this year stress for the next 2 months.

It's our build up play that puts our defence under too much pressure. Everything continually breaks down in midfield, the front three are isolated and the ball keeps coming back. Painful to watch but familiar from the end of last season and the start of this one.

Really missing a fully fit DaSilva as well as Ivan.
Need Canos and Mbeumo to get involved.
Game has settled into a familiar pattern.
They press us high. We try to built through midfield. They suffocate Jensen and Janelt who have no out ball or runners and we lose the ball. They break or foul us or we foul them.
Game is then fractured with no flow and we get frustrated and try the impossible when we do get it.
Need more zip and running off the ball. Mbeumo especially just not showing and Forss needs it on the deck.

What a team of bottlers. There is no fight in this team. You have to battle to earn the right to play!

Below par. Thought this was probably the “Timid XI” today.

Still, we’ve created opportunities. Need to take them.

Defensively we’re struggling a bit. Midfield is lacking and our forward options, not great.

However, Coventry are pressing as did Barnsley and QPR (second half).We have to understand, teams are going to do that now!

Need to change tack!

We need to ring in the changes at half time as this is crap but we all know Thomas won't do anything until the 75th min when we are 2-0 down ☹

There's only him and Janelt playing in midfield, not having a third CM means his options are limited.
