Weakness finally realised

Recommended Posts

Come on, today was the reality that has been waiting since Leeds! Wake up and smell the coffee, we have been inept, Johnson had no idea what his best team or formation is, after the first game 3 months and a jolly to Spain I need 5 new faces, really, we could have told you that!! Streaky Lee, ******* clueless and blessed existence, Leeds failure (manager) would have us up no worries, happy clappers realise that he has to at least know the best starting 11!! French Red legend!!

Can I ask why it took you almost 4 months to make your first post?

It can’t have been anything to do with the fact we’ve been unbeaten in 10 games until today can it?

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Gone are the days when you would have virtually the same eleven, Shaw; Sweeney, Collier, Hunter & Merrick; Tainton, Gow, Cormack & Whitehead; Ritchie & Royle. Sub: Mann. It seems that long ago.

Football nowadays is a squad game.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion but it is strange don't you think that you wait until now to post your opinion. Why not post it during the 10 game unbeaten run?

Are you saying Lee Johnson is clueless? After all he is just the Head Coach, part of a team that includes Holden & Macca. That works in unison with Mark Ashton and the board. So if he goes then the rest of the coaching team and probably the Chief Executive goes as well as they have the same philosophy.

This team helped coach the talents of one Tammy Abraham. Now a Full England International.

This is the same team that have brought in approx £38M in combined sales for two players this season alone, on top of the multi million player sales the previous season. The same team that has seen us recruit some exciting and dynamic replacements in Palmer, Kalas, Dasilva & Weimann. Our goalkeeping department is the strongest it's been since the days of Tom Heaton and if it wasn't for a bit of cruel luck we would easily have had a 20 goal + striker in Benik Afobe.

All this coupled with consistent season on season improvement in league position, a major domestic cup semi final and consistently higher crowds.

Don't let mere facts get in the way of opinion.

I can see how you think Lee Johnson is clueless.

Ironically, you seem very upset that anyone else should have an opinion which contradicts yours. Either that or you’re Gas.

Good work either way.

Just watched the x-rated lowlights..............bad day at the office?    It's hard to tell from the camera angles and editing. but we seemed to give Luton forwards so much space?   Looking forward to getting Kalas and Nagy back, also Korey Smith in the longer term.   Charlton on Wednesday is very important game for us to show our cojones?

Why does a Rovers fan feel the need to pretend to be a City fan?  What a Joker.

Ooooh, City have had their first loss in the league for 3 months, let's get on there quick and try to wind them up....

Ladies and Gentleman, I give you a comedy genius.

He was just pissed that his team had lost for the first time in what........a month ?

On the match, I just think it was just one game too many covering up all the injuries .

I think we underestimated Luton. They roughed us up physically, especially Massengo who was often targeted by three players, and we couldn’t move the ball around how we like to. We looked like a team of individuals again, no one really linking up well and didn’t seem on the same wavelength half the time. Then we seemed to dip in confidence, aimless balls punted up to no one in particular. Then we seemed to want to walk it in, no one prepared to have a go or a shot.

Luton defended well and in numbers, and broke quickly also in numbers when attacking. They seemed to always have players available and we played like we were a man down and clinging on to a point, even though we were 2 down.

No dispute over their two goals, both well taken. Bentley did rush forward for the second but no one else was near defending. Couldn’t see the OG but prob a bit unfortunate but always felt like they would score a third before we would hit the net ourselves.

Plenty of talk from our fans that we scraped a draw at Brentford and Reading with better finishers could have taken points from us too.

Couldnt really see our new player’s chances, I was quite low down and they were up the other end of the pitch. He looked very small and quite different from what we have, could be a good thing.

@RedM

4-4-2 vs a diamond is hard enough even at 0-0, 11 v 11 let alone 2 down!

Teams defending well and in numbers, then breaking quite quickly against us- seems like we're quite vulnerable to this, especially with the current injuries.

Can't place it exactly but even during the 10 game unbeaten run, was never properly comfortable or confident about our underlying performance levels. Still didn't expect this but a draw wouldn't have been a huge surprise either.

It was a game of individual errors and giving the ball away in critical areas. You can have one or 2 with an off day, but not north of 5. Hopefully a blip. Sheff Utd had lost 4 by this time last season, including a 3 nil loss to Boro. There's plenty of time and we will have a much stronger squad soon. Cliche, but just "one of those days".

Whilst we haven't been particularly good over the last 6 weeks. The makeshift team have been able to somehow grind out results; whether through luck or playing above expectations.

Ultimately it was always going to catch up with us at some stage. Massengo needs a break, but who do we have to replace him with? Other players are being flogged minutes wise; but we have been down to bare bones for a while in certain positions.

Let's see how the Charlton, and Wigan games before jumping to any conclusions. Any team would have struggled to overcome our injury list. We will improve when the injured players come back; and hopefully improve up top in Jan.

Until then, unfortunately There will be days like yesterday as we go through a bit of a rollercoaster first half of the season.

To be fair, I thought we were nothing more than a top half team this season. So to be 9th is a pleasant surprise. 

Certainly beats being in the bottom 3😊

I must confess I had hopes and some expectation of top six until we had all the injuries - it seemed like one step forward and two steps back with every new bit of news coming out of the club - but would be happy with being comfortably top half now.

I`m hoping to be pleasantly surprised though and we somehow overcome the adversity and get to the playoffs but I think it may be beyond us this season.

Totally agree...9th but only 1 win off 2nd place. Plus other teams losing when expecting to win.

I just look forward to the day when we can play this team again and they are 100%

For me the jury is still out on Palmer. But I guess that's because he's always going to be one of those players that is inconsistent.

As for the rb position. I think Pereira was good against Reading, and certainly deserves more game time. However the flip side is he's caused Hunt to up his game, to stay in the side.

Not sure of playing Nagy and HNM in the same side or even as a three. We will get overloaded and the fbs exposed.

At home I would always play Eliason as he by far and away out most creative player. However where does that leave Palmer?

Otherwise loving your team @spudski 😊

Palmer is in the same bracket as Tomlin and JET for me. Can be awesome...but needs players around him that can cover what he lacks. To be top 6 Palmer needs to be on his 'A' game consistently. Plus he needs Strikers who are on his wave length. Afobe was and I think Nketiah would have been.

For me Elliason needs to offer more than just being a good crosser of a ball. Up front we look like a team that's never played together.

Yep........it looked to me as if the Luton coaches out thought us, and concocted a tactical plan that played right into their hands.   We were disorganised and naive, and their use of a sweeper system made us impotent.  LJ needs to up his game, as do our players,  we were outfought and neutralised, and need to bounce back quickly.  As I alluded to before...we need Nagy and Kalas back asap.
