You can certainly tell who the two first team players are, put it that way.

Thompson has given the ball away at least 3 times already. Forss ineffective. Would be seriously worried if a lot of these guys were needed in a league game!

From what I can hear the sum is not greater than the parts with this team. A few individuals not stepping up. Commentary just made the point Roeslev is getting shut down and over run which isn’t his fault.

Danny Mills is not happy with our performance, should mean we’ll win comfortably 👍

Understandably very disjointed. But some of these shouldn’t knock on TF’s door any time soon.

3 x Mads competing for biggest rabbit in headlights award. We don’t have a right back at the club who can play in a back 4.

Wissa done ok at times. We’re working hard enough but it shows that even the most talented youngsters need leaders around them. Bar Pinnock there is no leader out there so the boys will have to work it out themselves.

Read that MBS is injured. Ethan is so crucial, even though we want a cup run, think I’d rather be didn’t play full 90, even if we’re losing

Wonder if Persian is watching his prince. He’s out there apparently 😂

Needs a big 45 to make the bench on Saturday.

Is it just 3 subs? In which case Sergei/Mbeumo and Onyeka, asap. Their defence isn't great.

It’s a terrible performance....clearly shows a team that obviously has not played together....mads at RB has been a weak link down that side

Pretty strong squad overall. Definitely a side picked to win this, looking forward to it!

you sure, looks like a complete reserve team to me,

it is what it is, 9 changes, giving bit players a chance to show what they have but to be fair it’s a complete fekkin shambles.

Thompson again just not good enough, always out of position, got some horrible passes into horrible areas but doesn’t have a clue how to get out of trouble, not all his fault but is way short of the level needed IMO

Roeslev having his worst game for us since that Coventry shambles last season.

Ghoddos, enough now, we have given him so many chances, just a fat lump who blobs around doing nothing.

Halil again looks a really good player, would love to see him up top.

Wissa, looks like he has something but a bit headless at times. I think he will be a player for sure when he gets good players around him.

Forss, again hasn’t challenged for one 50/50 or header all night, when we put it forward it is a free header for the defenders every time, if he isn’t being set up with good chances he may as well not be there, reminds of vibe, good finisher but gives the defenders a free ride all night.

The players have got a chance to show they should be on the bench this season and at the moment only 2 or 3 look close,

bidsrup runs his nuts off but has given the ball away so much because there is no one around him,

it is only a kick about for us but Christ it is crap, the high press turning out defence into jelly and long balls just being collected by FGR unchallenged,

Boring to be honest with all the time wasting.

Anyone else worried by this? No creativity- being outplayed by a League 2 outfit!! Injuries happening all over the place. Showing that our squad depth is so thin. Compare this to Norwich apparently hitting Bournemouth for 6!!

Not really. We've seen it so many times before when we've made 9/10 changes
