I’m probably in the minority, but I liked the fact that Warnock changed to 442, both of our strikers play better with a strike partner. I don’t see how Roberts would have fitted in to that formation. 

Do you think we played well when we went to 442?

Warnock waited far too long to make changes when it was clear it wasn't working for us, I don't know why, you've got to be putting Roberts on to give Huddersfield something to think about, poor decisions today Mr Warnock.

I keep saying we need to get to January still in the mix and add the attacking quality we need. But I’m not confident of adding any real quality which I think makes or breaks our season

At least Johnson played well again.

Not particularly, although we did score soon after the substitution was made. 
The point is that I felt going two up top was the right thing to do and had I been the manager I would have done the same.

Not sure Bola or Howson did much wrong either.

I'm honestly so *** off after this match.

We were ok, not good, not bad, we created quite a few chances and made quite a few mistakes. Those factors don’t suddenly make us rubbish or Warnock a bad manager, just like when we beat the bottom team we don’t suddenly become promotion candidates. 
 

No one is saying that we are rubbish or Warnock is a bad manager, but to give away 3 goals in such a poor manner defensively, and also not taking our chances up top means we played poorly and need to be much better going forward.

I do see this as a blip and don't expect to see too many more performances like it for the rest of the season but you have to acknowledge the bad days rather than blindly saying we did ok.

Fry did ok, Tav did ok before he was hooked I thought.  Don't remember Bola getting done too often either.

Everyone has an off day, to be fair, and there's still a long way to go.

Still only 2 points off the play-offs, sadly we're playing a much better side in Swansea next..

We didn’t land a fist on Huddersfield after the sun was made and we scored because the referee gave us a very very soft penalty. I’d have been livid had that been given against us. 
 

Would you have taken Tav off?

I’m not blindly saying everything is ok, I was replying to CT’s tongue in cheek comment that because we’ve lost, everyone things we are rubbish again. I think nuance is sometimes lost on Internet forums.

    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.

    • I don't know anywhere near enough about St Pauli or Bundesliga 2 to really say if it means anything, but I notice Stojanovic has only kept 1 clean sheet in his 8 games there, letting in 13 goals. In the same period Bettinelli has played 10 homes, kept 2 clean sheets, and let in 16. Fairly similar statistically, though I've not actually watched their games and I imagine Stojanovic made more saves in that period.
