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

They are the problem. I’m afraid. No positivity. No possession or pattern of play. At times we were like a pub team Ashton does not train them and pick the team. There are enough good players at the club to get better results than we are getting

We could have lost 5-0 and it still wouldn't have been as bad as some make out.

Agreed. Seriously, some people should take a break from both the forum and watching City. You can literally see the mental health deterioration in a few. It’s just constant moan, whinge, negativity and it’s day after day. People are spending two hours of their life dreaming up how the table will look in 6 games time, literally talking themselves into a “we’re doomed scenario”.

We ain’t that good and it’s not changing any time soon. We will muddle through and get the results we need to stay up THIS SEASON but pretty it certainly won’t be.

Disagree. I thought he looked pretty dodgy this evening. Came out for unneeded balls, and was lucky(?) for the Pen as the ball went under his body before cleared. 

He has shown his class before. Ok made a couple of mistakes but hey he's human. If Bentley was to move on I would have no problem with Max between the sticks. He did make a few good saves if you didn't see them.

These people still don’t get it, **** knows why. Sack Dean and guess who gets to take 6 weeks appointing the next nondescript doomed to failure Manager.

The fact MA appointed LJ at the right time is the only thing that gives me the idea there’s a small chance he may get it right

I would like to see a midfield three of Massengo, Williams and Palmer behind Semenyo and Paterson personally 

Totally agree would play semenyo up top on his own , bit of a gamble as he is not great in front of goal but he can bully play in behind and create space for Palmer and pato behind to exploit . 
 

Worth a go , can’t be any worse that Nahki wells atm .

Well it was not to bad, but lets face the reality. Sheffield United are bottom by a long way in the league above us, and were the better team tonight. We are as a club at best mid table Championship and worst a bottom of the league club. It hurts me to say that.

No, Sheffield are bottom 3 by a distance not bottom by a distance.

Certainly not a classic and the better team won. We looked well organized defensively and as usual we’re lacking up front with no real chances, mind if only NW had squared it to Pato.....

Williams going off injured is a big concern and Jack Hunt looked to be struggling at the end, losing Mawson for league games is another downer.

Increasingly I have the feeling we just need to get through this season, give everyone a decent rest and start afresh next season.

Agree but that is standard for a professional football club. The same as it is standard to create chances and score goals. If we were winning games 1-0 I could stomach it . But we aren’t scoring or creating we aren’t keeping clean sheets and we are not winning games. We are in free for all and it’s very concerning IMO

Worth noting Sheffield United have perked up in recent weeks. Results wise anyway, however unsure I'd have started Diedhiou. Semenyo right, Paterson left, Wells central. Or Palmer behind Wells and Semenyo.

Just it's too easy to lump it when Diedhiou plays. "Big man, high ball, forget midfield". Why vs Cardiff with their 3 big CBs 2nd half we were hitting long balls or crossing high, what suspect tactics.

There’s a chance the manager will go sometime soonish, there is zero chance that SL or JL are going anywhere soon. I’d imagine that’s why. We’ve got to have some hope of improvements before SL / JL eventually sells up which could be years / decades away! Realism in other words.

As i have said elsewhere we need pace upfront and bite in midfield...........but we are not too faraway with 2 or 3 additions and after giving Wells his pension.......we defended well, but have no attack

That probably sums it up. Our current set of forwards (U23s) and Semenyo excluded we don’t do enough to frighten defenders. Fam and Martin have their moments and Wells is a waste of an undoubted chunk of salary.

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. 

He is an “in the box” striker, but as a team we never get in the fkn box.

We are so negative, it does my head in. Sheff U are not a good side, and we did not even have a go at them.

Our final 3rd performance is a worry I agree but generally tonight we did ok. Not the result I wanted obviously but I do take some positives from the game.

My worry is trying to take positives is literally all we are taking out of games!

I was looking forward to it tonight. Following recent disappointments, a chance to make the last 8 in nearly 50 years, I was looking for a real blood and guts performance. For me that was so disappointing and disheartening.

Overall they are struggling in the PL this season, but they recently won against Man Utd and lost only by 1 goal against Man City and Chelsea, so they're not so bad right now.

Are you serious ?

Yes, LJ kept us up when staring down relegation. He did his first job right. I’m not including all the other stuff with LJ. But to say appointing LJ was a complete failure is silly. It’s the only thing that gives me any sort of small hope that it could be okay, don’t take it from me @Sheltons Army 😂

Looking at the posts on the match day thread, you'd think we'd just put in another mistake littered performance. I may be in the minority here but, I thought we were doing okay, not brilliant but not bad. It certainly wasn't as bad as some performances recently, with mis control, misplaced passes, lack of effort and, gives us something to build on.

I thought Patterson and Williams broke up their play quite well, with Vyner holding centrally and both looked to drive forward when in possession. The three centre backs did well, with Moore much more suited to the right hand side. Towler made a very good debut for a young lad.

Usual problems with the strikers, greedy little git and a big bloke who looks disinterested and lacking in tenacity. Equally we have a weakness in goal when Bentley doesn't play. sadly I don't believe Max has the desire needed to actually dominate any situation, he's just too timid.

I think it was unfair to judge whether the ball hit Mawson's hand by only taking the flight of the ball from the side view, I thought from the off that it had hit his thigh first, then to send him off was also harsh. 

The best team won but, we have something to build on and hopefully the injury to Williams isn't a bad one.

We all know we have issues in the way we play but remember had our centre forward squared the ball instead of being a selfish little ***** then that game could easily have had a different outcome. I’d give him the train fare home and tell him to get out of my ******* sight if it was my team.

I Cannot believe the female co commentator called Sheff U..........Slick,  ha?  We needed to buy a striker with pace, not Wells, he is all wrong for a side with no wingers, LJ was stupid to buy him IMHO.

Usual not bother to change and affect the game with substitutions until too late, why do we all see the game so different to our fake coaches. Lumping balls to 2 disinterested strolling around strikers was not working. Why not change at half time and try something else? But as usual stands with a glum confussed look on his face wondering if he can phone a friend for advice. 

Alright being a young coach, but go and learn somewhere else.

See I thought we equipped ourselves quite well. Good chance for Kalas in first half which if converted would have changed the game obviously. Up front we are lightweight. We bring on all the subs in the second half who have the trickery / ability to change the game but no one to convert the chance. Fam is our only hope. Wells and Semenyo really are just 2nd best just now. To win games you must score goals and preferably more than the opposition.

That was a huge error agreed

It was a convenient signing.  It made sense at the time as Burnley wanted Brownhill and we wanted a goalscorer.  Nothing good ever really happens out of convenience other than something convenient at the time.
