Seriously here lads, they are miles ahead of us in terms of football.

I would take it but if we beat them we should be up in front of a judge Monday morning!
we havent started, not even chasing in midfield , should be different 2nd half, they look weak in defence. but atm they better than us

Surely the plan was to hang in for half an hour playing it tight, not to vacate totally our half of the field. Just when you think you've seen everything.
Seems like a sensible approach doesn’t it?
Sounds too easy to me :lol:

Watch how they allow Mulder to pass it to a centre back, but as soon as the centre back receives the ball they force the pass to our full back who has no choice but to kick it long. They then win the second ball nearly every time..



I couldn't begin to guess what our plan is supposed to be.

Why the hell have we got our heads down. Fight FFS - the body language is terrible. Have a word at HT Coops.

Pass, pass, hoof!
That’s all because of Brentford. They’ve been the best team we’ve faced this season for cutting off our passing lines. Mix in a press at times and we can’t deal with it. They’re a good side. Manager seems a c**t, but a good side nonetheless.
Yeah, bottom line is they are much better than us and they and Fulham deserve to slug it out. In fact they should already be up. We'd have had more chance against Brom. Doesn't mean we can't nick it with some ridiculous spawn, but it really would be grand theft play off.

Not a problem if your deep midfielders are mobile. Leon and Joe would get fullbacks out of situations like that all day long. We don’t get that from Grimes or Fulton (a little from Grimes, but nothing from Fulton).

The little ginger number 21 playing for Fulham the other night - now there’s a player. Ran the deep midfield and showed how limited Grimes is (who’s a reasonable Championship player in fairness, but no more).
