Williams and James are rested today.

We still don't have a recognised holding midfielder do we? I believe thats our priority atm. Without Williams we do really lose the balls (no pun intended) in midfield.

God we are crying out for a defensive midfielder they are going right through the middle time and time again

If we’re playing 2 central midfielders up against the another sides 3 midfielders, we will always struggle to control the ball in that area of the pitch (even if one of our 2 was purely a DM). It’s simple mathematics.

Out wide is where our strength will be, IMHO.

Plus three of our better midfield players are at home resting today.

And it bloody shows. Missing Semenyo massively as well. We’re going to struggle for goals until he comes back I think. Big reason Weimann scored so many, has to do twice as much without him in the team, that’ll take away from his goal threat.

The match day thread on the Plymouth forum have made a couple of comments on City fans there today chanting Paedophilic songs. 

Yeah they are calling someone who’s wearing white a peado. You love to see it.

Really hope Vyner isn’t involved much this season. Klose getting caught out a few times as well. Hopefully Kalas can come back in and find his form alongside Naismith and Atkinson. 

I would expect our first choice back 3 (assuming they are fit, and available for selection) to be Naismith, Klose, Kalas. 
 

I’m sure I heard that because we are going to favour playing a back 3, that’s why we won’t need either of our 2 central midfielders to be  an out and out DM.

It might well show but the important thing is that they have to be ready and firing when points are at stake. That team today will not be named for a single league game this season. It’s a pre-season runaround and all players in the squad need minutes.

Well if you mix sun booze and idiots you will always get weird behaviour.

The bloke who’s getting it sang at him as obviously done something. Seen him a few times now winding our lot up. Just football banter, isn’t that deep.

Only pre-season but, already sick of these vyner Hollywood passes. We are severely lacking in attacking vision and quality in the final third. Concerns me that we don’t have an appropriate replacement for semenyo who makes a big difference to how we play in the final third.

tanner definitely can’t perform the same attacking role that wilson can offer. Not been much of an outlet really.

unlike the Cheltenham and Portsmouth games, there doesn’t seem to be and real style of play. It was obvious in the previous games that the plan was to get the ball wide and get crosses in. I have barely seen any of that here so far

We don’t seem to be much of a threat! Massengo a right nuisance but we are not really offering anything for Martin or Weimann, James still disappointing

Hey Dave36, ‘… James still disappointing’, you say. What’s disappointing you? The fact he is being rested, and so not playing today?

Andy King just simply isn’t very good now either, so loose in possession.

Chill out, he’s another one who will get very few starts this season.

Add Kalas and Semenyo...

 

Great point, that’s only the seven missing today then!!
