A frustrating two points dropped IMO given our half time lead. Not helped by going defensive after they pulled a goal back.

Forgot how to play for a large portion of the last 30 minutes. Peter Sutcliffe had a better touch than some of that lot after an hour.

Looked so comfortable going into the half. Daft pen not just from Mou for his role but all around, should have won it at the end. Silva really needs some time on the bench or working just with the first team but not the expectation he is playing. I can see there is ability there, but he looks like he doesn't fit that one up top at all, and we aren't playing in a way to get out the best of him, the little turn and touch in the box for example.

Shambolic second half.

First half scoreline flattered us slightly as I felt at the time but we had got ourselves into a position and played well enough.

Then we've crapped ourselves after a silly mistake gifted them a way back into the game. All tactics went out of the window for some reason. The players have got to react better but that comes from the coaching, obviously. They have to be able to cope with these things.

I think it showed where we were lacking severely though. there is no excuse not to sign a striker of course, but we also HAVE to get another wide option IMO. And if we are looking at playing a back four regularly (which I would), we also need a midfielder and centre back. That won't call happen this month but it needs to going forwards, to have a more balanced and talented squad.

I would have just made a straight swap Kilman for RAN and left Vitinha on..but yeah, we clearly miss a striker, Silva is just 18 so we cant expect him to dominate the premier league

absolutely shambolic 2nd half. wasn't that great in the first either, honestly, pretty even. 3 goals flatters us.

creativity seemingly being coached out of the team. a central striker isn't the only thing missing from our performances; if raul was playing we wouldn't have finished that game 6-0. love nuno but he is clearly running out of ideas. negative and weird game management.

Actually had some luck go our way for the first time in a while and still couldn’t get the job done.

We can’t feel hard done by because we continue to play negative, defensive, cautious tactics and football.

Blame it on tiredness, injuries, lack of alternatives etc etc - ultimately, it’s not good enough.

Mixed bunch in the main, but Traore really has gone to shit compared to last season.

We played the entire game a man down, another game where Silva went totally missing again

Saiss isn't a CB in a 4.
RAN needs to play at WB.
Traore the only player to emerge with any credit.
Otasowie had more impact out of position in 5 minutes than half the team.

Need an RCB too, we are way too open with our current FBs in a back 4.

Great first half, but fuck me, did we just raise the white flag up in the second half. I have no idea why we can't figure out a change of tactics by the other team within 5 minutes. Really, really pissed off with this result against a team that haven't won a game for a long while. This result has made the next few games a must get points, and to be fair it's going to be a struggle for the rest of the season based on the second half performance. Oh how we need a striker now....

Very flattering to be 3 1 up at half time but the second half was a real concern. Offered absolutely nothing. Silva anonymous and proving why we need a striker. Costa just added 10k a week to his wage request. RAN does not look great defensively

but the positive is that Neves scores, we didn’t lose and we scored three. Otasowie should have won it. I would still play him from the start in place of Moutinho.

Only seen the goals, but zonal marking from corners isn't working. Centre half running in from the edge of the box with pace, player not blocking the run who is supposed to, ball goes over the defender marking the space halfway on the 6 yard box, goal.
