Sheffield Wednesday (h) - 13:00 Sunday - What can we expect?


Recommended Posts

This first half screams to me how much we need a midfield of Morrell or Bakinson, Williams and Walsh. We have no link into our forwards this afternoon, whatsoever.

Is it me or is Wells playing like he dont give a toss 

Why does he struggle sometimes with the most basic of passes to a team mate?

Too many sloppy passes. Wells do bad there. He's often so poor when coming deep

Not sure if it's confirmation bias but I feel that it's that pass from the sideline in towards the centre circle that he often under-hits or misplaces.

Paterson/Weimann isn’t working. Both aren’t creating enough options in midfield as they’re both running into forward positions. Leaves Bakinson exposed (despite playing well) and creates temptation for defenders to lump it forward.

Desperately need a more natural CM for balance imo.

Even then was there any need for that type of pass drilled in. Weimann making a run, just lay it into his path and he enters the box.

Is it just me that feels quite satisfied with this first half then? Surprised by all the moaning although it is OTIB so should have expected it. 🤣

It’s not bad, just if it was a boxing match I think they would be ahead on points at the moment. They are breaking the link between our midfield and forwards, and are taking better care of the ball. Add some rank poor passing by us it’s causing frustration.

Is there any reason why people are asking for links to streams when the cash-strapped club need the money?

Get the idea if you live in a region where you can't stream it, but given we are/will be refunded for games, seems poor form at the moment.

Perhaps cash-strapped people need the money?

Exactly. It's not awful by any stretch but we've not created much of note and almost let them in a couple of times through avoidable errors. I don't think it is moaning to say that we can do better.

I think we've done well so far. We just have to be conscious that this Sheff Wed midfield is a couple of levels above Stoke. Their energy and sharpness is excellent. That punishes every midfield pass of ours that is less than perfect. We need to be a little smarter in the middle. Makes it entertaining to watch though.

Hopefully people can see why I reckon Sheff Wed could comfortably make up the -12 points.
