If we'd turned two of our draws into wins we'd be second. I think we are still a few players away from competing at the top end though. 

I know its not great to watch but the league looks wide open at the moment. 

If we won all our games we would be top 😁

Na Saville just ran into him. There player didn’t really move. Was a well worked set piece.

Again, that is his ENTIRE purpose on that corner is to block Saville off. It's a pick play.

Yeah we deserve to be where we are but we're not 3 players away from a top 10 position either. We're better than that.

At the start of the season given the teams and squad we have I would have taken a hand off for 1.42 points per game Not pretty to watch or let’s be honest its bloody agony sitting through 90 mins and one win is equal to three draws so I’d prefer a bit more urgency and attacking play. On another note we are certainly a lot harder to break down which is progress. 

Cardiff have done well with loans, two Liverpool, one Arsenal and one from Leicester. So I guess on that note: we did pretty well really...

Before the match yes of course would have been happy with a point but if I am honest I am somewhat disappointed because we coud and should have won that game if we were just a bit more adventurous and NW changing the momentum at the right time with substitutes .

Roberts was needed in the final third part ofthe game.

Still another bench mark game and so far ok we can hold our own.

Need to start scoring goals though and taking on target shots

Can I say *** sky for their highlights package. 2 minutes of highlight and our goal is the only one of our "highlights" they showed. Yes we didn't create lots but it was nowhere near as one sided as you'd think watching that rubbish.

Unfortunately it’s always been like that @Brunners. They just don’t like us

 You do know that this isn't the foul that lead to the equaliser? But yes, this was a free kick. Moore was doing it all game.

TBF, I thought their equaliser was a foul (a harsh one and not stone wall)on saville but if it had happened down the other end, not many Boro fans would be complaining about it.

Yes, it was the foul that lead to Kieffer Moore's chance.

It was good to see Britt back today. Hopefully he starts v Coventry and maybe a chance to give Akpom a breather. I would like to see Tav and Roberts playing off Britt with Wing Morsy and Howson in midfield. It would be good if we could give the Northern Ireland lads a breather too in Saville and Paddy. We cant with Paddy as yet but maybe Wing for Saville v Coventry.

It'll also be good for Browne to get a chance against Coventry even if only off the bench get some minutes

I know you kind of expect them too but it's nice to hear both Saville and Warnock come out and talk about how there was a clear foul in the build up to the goal.

    • I fully expect that we will be back in full lockdown by mid January; at least in the North and Midlands (London and the South might get spared as putting them into another lockdown would be politically more damaging for the government in the longer-term due to voting patterns).  Allowing the Christmas window and then locking us down again after enables the government to be seen to be doing something about the virus and all the 'irresponsible' people in the North, and therefore keeps their core Southern voters happy.  I will admit that I have broken the current lockdown, but I have done so in a responsible way.  I live on my own and have no remaining family, so I do not have significant contact with people (not of the sort that would promote virus spread).  I have one friend who I saw a few times in the Summer, and there was one occasion we met up with a couple of other people outside at the picnic tables at the Dales Centre.  Other than that, I have not seen anyone properly since early March.  I am in the very vulnerable group (on medical grounds, not age) and was shielding until August.  Being trapped inside and never seeing anyone has been really bad for my mental health to the point where I have sometimes felt like I would be better off dead.  I have been doing 'non essential' trips out because I cannot cope with being shut in any more.  I have been driving to places on my own and not been in close contact with anyone other than passing on footpaths (on places like Hedleyhope and Waskerley) or on my weekly Greggs trip.  There are days when I have gone for a drive simply to get out of the house.  I need to go beyond my village to not feel shut in and sub-human.  I am not in a social bubble because most people are in bubbles with their parents or children and the the small number who aren't had formed themselves into friendship pair bubbles while I was still shielding.   The whole system assumes that everyone has a partner or family.
    • Do Sheffield United want Britt think he'd get along well with their strike force 🤪 
    • Yeah the fatigue thing cant be used as a mitigating factor as every team in the league is dealing with the same schedule, some with a couple of extra cup games earlier in the season and some with more than just 2 international players. Yes we have a smaller squad than some but we also have players in the squad who aren't getting minutes which is the managers decision. Fatigue management is just another facet of management and if we start to lose games because of it that's on the management team.
    • I think some of the players today looked fatigued, in my opinion. NW not picking certain players, not making substitutions earlier or even using all 5 allowed substitutions (recently), will further fatigue certain players as they will have to continue to play on. Howson, McNair, Dijksteel, Saville and Tav have all played over 1100 minutes so far this season. Only Brentford have the same amount of outfield players (5) as us, to have played over 1100 minutes. So although we both agree we are in the same predicament as every other team, our circumstances in terms of player numbers are certainly different. Regarding your other points they are well made, but I'm not sure why you have made them when the original discussion was regarding player fitness and how I thought it played a small part in today's performance.
