What a goal by Da SIlva, and what a great defensive action from Nørgaard to start the counter!

Indeed... Was a brilliant cut out from norgaard. Finally after all these years weve got a decent josh in midfield ;)

Canos breaks on the right into the path of Kamo. Good block by defender

Bristol City player barged into Canos and he goes flying over the boards.

Yellow for City player and Canos bizarrely.

What the **** is that?! Canos has the SMALLEST of nibbles, gets thrown over the advertising boards and they both get a yellow. Absolute madness

I love that Jansson is the first player to confront Hunt after he pushed Canos. He is a proper captain

Few bees half chances during an attack. Said nearly one on one but slightly heavy pass from Ollie took him wide

1-0

85’

**** sake... We go 3 center backs i imagine to stop that kind of thing. Absolute acres of space for him to put it wherever he wanted

Best thing about going 3 centre backs when they don’t pick up a player.

Pack it in with this needed to go 5-3-2.

Bryan on for Josh.

Poor decision to change formation when we looked comfortable.

Obviously we haven't yet learned that three central defenders isn't really working...
Thomas is maybe stubborn. He did the same Sunday too for no reason.

Cross tipped Over by Bentley.

Corner #13

90’

1-1. FT.

Unpopular opinion maybe but I’m blaming TF for that. No need to go 5 at the back when we were looking comfortable.

Not a bad performance. We will play worse and win. Decent point.

But changing formation when you’re comfortable and winning... looking forward to someone explaining that one to me.

I dont agree with the decision to throw on an extra center back when we looked to be cruising as it was but doesnt excuse the sh*t defending. 85 minutes and then to switch off like that is the kind of thing you cant do if you want to challenge.

Id heard loads of talk of bristol city being attacking, good footballing side... They were *****, and whilst we didnt quite dominate them we deserved to win imo

Daylight robbery, again. One attempt at goal second half.

Why oh why did we change formation, we had them in our pocket.

Should of won, why oh why change the formation, TF far far to negative. Almost perfect result but 2 points dropped.

That's a s##t one to take. I rarely blame the manager but that was an odd substitution when we looked in complete control compounded by schoolboy defending when generally we defended well tonight. Two points thrown away in my book.

IF it stayed 1-0 TF would have been praised for excellent game management.
IF he stuck to 433 and we’d conceded an equaliser he would have been slagged for being naive.
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
Personally I think his thinking was ‘with all the work we have done on the training field, I trust you guys to play for 10 mins in a 532 and not concede’
Not negative to me. Right choice, poorly executed.

It wasn't just TF's fault as we left ourselves short at the back after a corner. JDS was back covering for Rico and made a hash of his challenge.

That's one of those results where a point feels like a defeat.

I'm not sure how Bristol City are so high up the table with a team and a performance like that?

You may have a valid point but peraonally think the majority would have seen that we were in complete control and if we conceded then so be it. The way it unfolded just makes it seem like fixing something that wasnt broken and no one likes that...
