We can't get anywhere near them. Not even close. Grant goes off and now we don't even have a way of subbing him off for Britt to give us more of a presence.

 

2 ways I can see this going tactically. Either we stick with what we've got, take the loss on the chin and hope it doesn't get worse. Or we go for broke, sacrifice a defender for a striker and hope we can scrap a couple of chances. One thing is for sure, we can't sub off a midfielder because they've got full control of the midfield and were dominating it even when we had 11 men on the pitch. Right now we can't string 2 passes together in midfield. The only thing we can do is take off a defender and hope we give them enough to think about at the other end that they don't obliterate us down the wings.

 

It's not looking good. Traore has been non-existent again. Our only man who can pull a goal out of nothing has only had one decent run and as soon as he got in a good position, ball went out to Downing and the attack was lost.

That puts Millwall ahead of us, and they have a better run in (they should beat Blades and should win their home match against Villa. Wouldn't be surprised if they also win at home against Fulham as that will be a very hostile match and therefore difficult for Fulham. We might get a point when we play them, but they are likely to get more points than us from their other fixtures).

 

Is Grant banned for 1 match or 3? Might give someone more attacking a chance (although will probably play Clayton instead...)

Loads of fans leaving at HT...

 

They probably read your post from earlier about how little our existence means and are going to climb Bramall Lane and jump off.

 

I did feel guilty when Leadbitter was sent off...
