Shameful second half display - how can Holden begin to justify that utterly dreadful embarrassing performance. 
 

ps yes I know we won - but I have no pride in a team that wins like that - we were completely dominated for an hour and had simply nothing to offer except a good goalkeeper. Awful, horrible to watch.

Do you really think Holden decreed the second half?  What I saw was us being unbalanced by the Rowe injury, Huddersfield sensing a chance and then throwing everything against us with considerable flare.  Sometimes you have to give credit to the opposition.  Personally I though Holden’s subs were ok (though I was calling for Massengo to replace Bakinson), but Tommy Rowe was a big loss with no other left footed player to take his place.

For goodness sake we just won our 4th game out of 5 this calendar year.

If a team took the lead against us then defended like that, people would be saying ‘why can’t we do that?!?!’. We won. Enjoy it!

Neither was Darren bent on talkSPORT initially , like a rabbit in the headlights. He’s brilliant now & has his own show. Give him time . 

Lineker was shocking when he started on TV as well - very wooden. A natural now.

I expected Huddersfield to come at us straight after the break and the Rowe injury didn’t help but most teams weather the storm and get back into the game....not us. We just move further and further back letting teams come at us and chucking subs on don’t help if you don't change it tactically.  
 

that’s Holden’s problem, totally naive when it comes to tactics

From one optimist to another, of course enjoy the 3 points, but we were mullered good and proper... good defending and Lady Luck... we have our fair share and you have to believe this might be our year with luck like that..not first time is it

I dread to think what will happen at Brentford if we are that passive. It's one thing to sit on a lead and another to stand off and let the opposition have as much time and space as they want.

Given that was the case for an hour I assume Holden was ok with it though.

On the plus side, Kalas is rapidly turning into Shaun Taylor. Shame more of his teammates don't follow his example.

Come on now. It felt like a Cup tie where we were the lower league side under constant pressure. I’m hoping Joe Williams can come in there and organise us in the middle of the park.

It was just too frantic.

Don't think football is really your thing is it? We are on a good run, we are on the whole putting in better performances, so stuff your negative comments, and enjoy the 3 points. 

Not proud ..things happen in real football, get a grip.

I get that, but if the opposition is chucking everything at you, you defend.  If you’ve played football you know that you adapt to what’s going on on the field, and the manager/coach has little influence if they’re chucking the kitchen sink at you.  I think Holden’s problem was not having a strong enough bench to be able to make a significant difference.  Massengo for Bakinson perhaps?  We needed someone to put his foot on the ball in midfield and push us forward, but it didn’t happen.  One thing I’m confident of though is that the manager’s instruction wouldn’t have been “Go out and defend desperately for 45 minutes”.  I’ve said it elsewhere but sometimes you do have to give credit to the opposition and a lot of Huddersfield’s approach play in the second half was very good indeed.

Thank Christ for Kalas, Mawson and Bentley - and Diedhiou for his goals tonight.

Embarrassing second half - extremely poor game management from Holden and his two assistants.  

Thats not the first time where its a case of get in front and then chuck everything that was good away and then sit back and wait to concede or get lucky and win. 

Very disappointing.

I don't know why I'm so dispirited, I won £80 for the 2-1 win.

That was an awful, anti-football hour after we went two up. Deano should be ashamed of that negative rubbish. 

Do you seriously think he told them to drop so deep . As players you do it automatically when your as under the cosh as we were . No, we shouldn’t have dropped so deep and we got away with one but it wasn’t on instruction .

The spine of the team looks solid Bentley Kalas nagy fam its the rest that looks shocking.

Wells would rather be in London it just isn't working out for him here.

Honest appraisal of the game from Kalas tbf.

"we can't keep playing like that"

"if we go 2-0 up we should be looking for 3-0, 4-0 or whatever"

And, tellingly when asked about the Derby game "whoever coaches it better will win the game"

Side note thought Kalas was class tonight and looks so much better next to another class centre back

Quite right too. Would also suggest that Holden may have had a few words afterwards for him to come out with that.

He’s on a rolling contract isn’t he ? Meaning he always has 12 months to run 

@Davefevs shared a link explaining it which I can't find right now but basically there's no such thing as a "rolling" contract and once the 12 months fixed has expired either party can leave without compensation. Of course it can be extended but the "option" is there.
