Thoughts from today

Very bitty today, don’t think we played at our best at all despite possession, corners attempts we never looked really threatening.

Felt that Harrison had loads of possession but with very little end result, felt like crossing and just hoping someone would be there, and they generally weren’t.

I think we miss having wide people both sides, want to see Pablo more central, speaking of whom, I felt Pablo drifted out of the game and was disappointed we didn’t see earlier substitutions, I think the long trip to aus followed by another to Italy has seen us fade last match and this match.

Lack of height meant our corners were ineffective and were really vulnerable to their corners and same old story, dint take enough of our chances and opponents need little to make most of theirs.

Poor performances from Dallas and Douglas. Lost track of number of wayward passes of possession conceded from these 2. It was Douglas conceding possession upfield that led to forest attack that Dallas conceded for that they scored from, with Casilla flapping at it.

Not sure how much longer Ayling is out for, that could be costly and I’d seriously be looking at Alioski starting ahead of Douglas.

Thought White looked very dependable in terms of no worries when he has ball or is defending, Cooper too reliable today.

Philips was great at times, one superb pass first half but fir me Forshaw possibly had his best game for us, played really well today.

Would like to see Bamford play with a partner v Salford I think if could be an interesting combo to explore, there was one chance first half where bamford cut back from keeper but no one to take advantage.

Sooner Costa given more time the better, and clearly we need an alternative to bamford, so we need Nketiah making an impact soon too.

Hopefully no injuries.

Points like these cost us dearly last season, chances need to be better quality and we need to take more of them.

Also can we get Salim back translating?

Ellando, BPF v KIKO is a separate issue. If Bielsa doesn’t agree with you, that’s no reason to blame Kiko where there’s no blame (and I do agree there’ll be times soon where he will be). I just rewatched their goal again, and I simply cannot see how you can say he was badly positioned and that he did not throw his body across. Have you actually seen it back? He absolutely did this spreading himself in front of their No 14 Mir, who mis-hit it to Grabben.

If you can’t see that then let’s just agree to disagree, but don’t feel it’s fair to lay blame where it’s not due.

Agree about Kiko selonki.. thought his footwork and distribution were brilliant today..,didn’t have much else to do

salonika, I just had a look again on sky, maybe you have a point, from a different angle, he might not be totally to blame. I might be a bit biased I admit.

Thought Harrison was outstanding.

Not enough people in the box

This. Our best player today.

Whoever was defending the near post of the corner was at fault. Should have been dealt with right there.

Kiko was fine today.

Best player : Harrison
Good performances from all
Below par: Forshaw i didnt think did enough.

Who was is it out on the right who passed the ball in to the Leeds area and Grabben nearly had a chance from it?

Fair play.....but adding the words ‘might’ & ‘totally’ do actually prove your bias! 😉

Salonika - true as I said, I have been very anti Kiko lately,especially at the end of last season, the way things turned out

Kebab.. Dallas?

Can’t believe this idiot has criticised Harrison today. Same person that claimed Phillips was in last year of contract. That claimed Roofe wanted the move to Rangers. And that AR refuses to spend while Orta Spends too much. And also can’t understand statistics

Dallas was excellent today and has been for a while
