Bristol City v Millwall Match Day 19

Hmm being constructive what do we actually need to do now. As is stands last games makes it feel like we are relegation fodder. Would a new coach or manager help this lot?

The last few games have been against teams that we consistently struggle against every season. We as a club need to look at why we continue to struggle against physical/direct/athletic teams who can score first and then completely stop us from playing. 
 

Either that or you fight fire with fire and appoint warnock or Pulis as next manager 🙈

The lack of commitment in some of those 50/50 tackles was extremely worrying to see.

The players are lucky there wasn't a crowd in there tonight. 

Even if there was, there wouldn’t have been many come the 80th minute.! As had been said, Holden may also be fortunate there isn’t fans in at the moment because with the continued very poor home form coupled with the recent pathetic performances, he may well be getting dogs abuse by now

We're not going down, that's a given.

Last two games have been nowhere near acceptable but those who talk of a relegation, zero chance.

I remember Millwall one year being top at Xmas and getting relegated in May in about 1996,

Staying up isn't a given

Team just looks weak and we are too slow moving the ball which allows teams to tuck back in with bodies behind the ball.

Our possession is high but we don't actually do anything with it 

With the exception of tonight, our possession generally post Norwich at home has not been high.

Worst of all worlds.

Really? With the last two performances I would argue that it is highly probable. Given the fact we have robbed a few teams this season and comfortably won one or two matches.....

Can you see that in a deflated market, at our level.

Who is taking in a Covid deflated market when we have quite a few out of contract in the summer quite a lot of our players? 

If a reasonable number of the injured players are back in January this can offer some fresh hope.

Could the loan market in one or two positions provide fresh impetus?

We've only signed two, there could be scope.

As to the second bit, can you do that while navigating loss limits, ongoing monitoring etc?

This feels like a bit of a holding period.

Maybe a change in formation could be an answer to the lack of impetus in our game?

4-2-3-1, or 4-3-1-2 could help with some of the problems. Wing backs are not mobile enough to be an attacking.

Maybe, it could just need tweaking a little to be more effective.

There is no attacking midfield threat in this team at all.

A couple of loan signings, could be the difference we need. There are more holes in this side than that. As you said if some injured players return, it could restore some order.

This team look dysfunctional and no cohesion in each position, to be effective.

One thing for sure, some changes will be needed to get this team firing again.

Bad performance but people are acting like Holden hasn't won any games all season!

A couple of weeks ago we were looking at the top of the table, Semenyo and Bakinson were having statues drafted, and it was all rosy. 

We've lost 2 matches in a row, we've come back from a lot worse than that. Dean is a brand new manager, did we really expect he would never lose a couple of games in a row? I guess times like these are when we find out what a manager is made of though.

And nobody wanted Warnock because the football would be crap. Ha ha.

I don’t think the likes of Bakinson, CoD, Martin would be seen again for a while in a Warnock led team. 

But as we’re decent human beings we’ve got to give them chance, after chance.......season after season......

i dont say Warnock is the answer, but if Holden is the answer, I'd love to know what the question was.

Got to give Millwall some credit for that.

Big issue for me was none of of City players were prepared to run at the opposition. No flair........

No flair.no invention, no drive,  no one making anything happen... all pretty turgid..again....  another painful watch..

As AW said at end of commentary, 7 or 8 injured players, all of whom would be match day squad. Only saving grace.
