...yeah...

It has Monk written all over it .. No clue who is the best 11 and we cannot defend against crosses... De ja vu

Shotton playing left back with Browne ahead isn't too bad as you think Shotton will cope better with no cover ahead of him than Coulson/Bola did. I imagine it will be a bit like when he was playing with Adama ahead of him. 

Otherwise I think it needed freshening up and they are the only options we really have.

It smacks of a small squad who had a game that didn’t go too well on Saturday. He doesn’t have the options that Monk had.

Can't see anything but a defeat tonight. 

 

We have a soft underbelly and against a team like PNE if we don't fight and win the 50/50's we'll get turned over. 

0-2

Its a strange choice of team. It smacks of Woodgate being not sure what to do next.

It seemed a bit like that when changing formation and now bringing Tav and Browne in from the off. We look a mile away from the team that drew at Luton. He needs to find a winning formula at the same time as building a system and if this team scuffs a win I wont be moaning that he got desperate. Its if he does a Monk, scrambles around weekly for a different formula but doesnt give performances or results, that I will truly believe in AK time.

Ground 2/3 empty, how do you go from premier league to this in 3 years?

Sky red button appears to be broken too, so looks like I'm having the night off.

Actually it's on riverside live so I guess it's not meant to be on the red button?

 

Also today I have learned you don't even need to be on a vpn to watch them..

    • Britt and Akpom both have a 1 in 5 goal record this season. and one assist between the two of them.  i think its clear that we need something different upfront, with these two currently upfront we will go nowhere.   fletch could could back and help but hes been out injured for months and who knows how long it will take to find him form.
    • I was also worried we might slip up here, AR. I'm not usually one for accepting excuses but apparently we haven't properly trained for 2 weeks because of COVID, Rockliffe has been closed for a while too. Apparently we struggled to train outside when it was open due to snow and ice but the indoor facilities were closed off for a bit longer? I don't know how true that is but if it is, it could explain today. Though obviously, we can't know for sure what difference it would have made. The only thing we know for sure is we got tactically outplayed by Birmingham, regardless of why that came to be. I guess my point is less about explaining the performance today and figuring out why that came to be, more to wonder if that is what we are expecting to see in the next few games too. If those circumstances are correct then I'm a bit more optimistic about the games to come. Once things get back to normal and we get back into our groove, performances will improve; at the very least we shouldn't see the same issues occur for a full 90 minutes very often, as right as people were that our start today wasn't too far from what we have seen previous to these behind the scenes issues.
    • I don't know what the weird situation is with Roberts and Warnock but it's absolutely infuriating. *** me off no end. Tav needs to be the first name on the team sheet centrally and in the most advanced position. Stop bloody shafting him out on the wing to make room for 3 plodding central players. We lose so much attacking energy without him buzzing around in there. The less said about Warnock's love affair with Johnson the better.   
    • I guess so, maybe quite a few were not match fit due to COVID.
