  1. Much better so far this season, something we need to keep up and improve on as the season goes on. We had a horrible xG last season and it showed. I'd be interested in defensive stats as that seems our achilles heel right now with those lapses of concentration.
  2. I's say so, on the plus side we only have to play 2 top 10 sides (Millwall, Brentford) in our remaining 12 games, so we have an opportunity to pick up some decent points. A top 10 finish must be the target now which I do think we will achieve.
  3. I'd like us to play a 3-5-2 but I don't think we have the players available yet for it to be successful, nor do we seem able to get the best out of the system currently, whether that's down to coaching or not is up for debate. I'm actually leaning towards a diamond midfield: Hunt/Sess Kalas Vyner Hunt/Towler Nagy Semenyo Paterson Lansbury Wells Diedhiou I've put Vyner in a CB role simply because I think he'd offer more solidarity to the defence over Moore. He's also more than capable of bringing the ball out of defence. Semenyo and Paterson can easily be swapped for Massengo and/or Bakinson if you want to shore up midfield. It would be quite easy to adapt it to a 4-1-3-2 if you swapped Lansbury for Bakinson. Semenyo isn't a main striker... yet! I don't think it's his best position right now, maybe once he has improved some more he'll really make it there. With his pace and power he could cause problems on the right hand side and certainly has the pace to get back and help out defensively too. Semenyo is best when he has space to drive at a defence, I'd be looking to have him pick up those pockets of space and split the defensive lines as he can be difficult to stop when he gets going.
  4. Get well soon fella. Thankyou for THAT season which will live long in the memory with all us us.
  5. Rowe's injured affected us I grant that. Second half though.... Sitting back + no pressure on the ball + giving Huddersfield the freedom of the wings will always = getting over run. We deliberately left the wings empty to try and stay compact but we just played into Huddersfield's hands. It was quite clear Huddersfield were exploiting the space we left them, I still can't get my head around why Holden didn't change it. They were quite clearly just following instructions. Holden tactics were at fault yesterday, got it very wrong imo.
  6. Yup, thing is you can't even defend it because it's the same thing every week. Returning players from injure won't fix our problems, it's deeper rooted than that!
