Wells is an absolute liability. He sucks  the energy out of the team. He is not a team player with a bad attitude. For me the best chance we Had was just in the 2nd half when he chose to shoot and not pass to Paterson who was totally unmarked. Seriously crap 

Winds me up with his needless fouling all the time

I can take the losing, but we’re just sooooooo boring to watch. 

 

We’re in trouble have no doubts about that. Midfield was the major concern. 

Now add a newly totally disinterest Fam, to an already disinterested Wells, injured and old Martin and non-goal scoring Semenyo. Hardly an attacking force to be reckoned with.

Plus, not forgetting, no left back.

He was top scorer in the league before he came to us & if you watch footage of his time there, he looked exactly the same. Just the way he is I suppose. 

I can deal with disinterested, a lot of great strikers look disinterested, but they actually do the biz when they get their one moment in a game, this fella doesn’t. Missing an open Pato sums the bloke up.

I'm not trying to slaughter one player but what does Jack Hunt bring to BCFC? I could add others but not the purpose of this post,

An energetic offering from the team, never really in it for a result but neither was it an awful performance.

Towler can feel proud of his first team debut. 

When he gets it right - not always - he’s our best crosser of the ball.

One thing that occurred to me.

Don't think that the penalty was wrong, probably red card too but VAR only at PL grounds?

Rights and wrongs aside, at AG it wouldn't have been a penalty. Probably.

Agree re VAR, doesn't make sense in this competition - either its at all games or none.

Definite penalty, Mawson unlucky to get a red for it though.

Yeah I think weakness in full back area is a big hidden issue for us. Maybe not hidden over last few weeks on left. But we give away the ball so much in full back position. JH's pass completion can't be much higher than 60%.

If he’d had squared the ball , Pato was through on goal ....unbelievable 

Exactly. Pato should have him up against the wall in front of everyone but our lads are probably too nice to do stuff like that. Plus he’d probably put his shoulder out for 16 weeks knowing our luck....

Generally a reasonable run out.

Positives:

Towler - lightweight but otherwise did really well and has a great future.

Taylor Moore - solid IMO

Max - as always looks good.

Negatives:

Lack of fire power in the final 3rd. Fam is good but the others are just sub standard. Our GD in the league confirms this.

We will survive the season with no doubt but to progress is another story.

That was a free hit tonight. A chance to get some confidence in the players have a few shots let them play with freedom. But no negative boring shit. 

Mawson banned for (at least) one game. No, it was not a free hit.

It’s ridiculous having a competition where this exists only at 20 grounds, it’s hardly a level playing field and while we didn’t look like scoring neither did they really 

VAR should either be at every game or none

A narrow defeat against a PL team is OK: unfortunately it brough also an injury (Dean and his staff are at fault for this one) and a red card (clear cut chance, so IMO it was the right decision).

Positives: 1) Towler looks good, and maybe could solve our LB issue; 2) we defendend well against the Blades; 3) having Pato back could give us more attacking threat in the league; 4) now we can concentrate on the Championship.

Negatives: losing Mawson (for 1 or 3 games?) and probably Williams (for many games, I fear), but also the lack of goals (especially from Wells).

Well played City .........with few additions and departures we might have a side.  No disgrace, and we will play Sheff Utd again next season.

You really have become accustomed to the terrible standard of football that we have to endure and therefore have set the bar very low.

If you found any attacking threat or, God forbid, some entertainment in that performance then you're a true optimist.

O'Leary - awful decision making.  not just the rushes of blood but also at corners.

Kalas and Mawson top class.  Mawson very unlucky with that decision

Moore top class although he still seems to mis-control when under pressure

Towler - great start but he will face better teams even if he plays again this season

Paterson - grim.  If you want to lose the ball in your own half when players have stepped forward, let "Pato" have it.

Wells - very poor.  Fammy - just averagely poor

It feels like Semenyo, Massengo, Nagy could be so much better with a manager who plays with a bit of positivity.

Therefore, sack Holden now.

It's getting worse. We look like a second division side, can't pass, hoof the ball up front. Please Dean and the rest of your coaching set up, please put us out of our misery and go

They are not the problem, they were appointed by the problem.

Agree you have it in all games regardless of venue or not at all. Hate VAR with passion. Think it makes football too disjointed
