Just second best in so many aspects today. Workrate, pressing intensity, crispness of passing, attacking intent...pretty difficult to take any positives from a performance like that
Second half yes, first half no.

Thing is, I have a really hard time blaming this one on Bruno when two of our three most important players were so... Poor.

Tough to tell if the tactics are at fault when your spine goes missing, I guess is what I'm trying to say.
Being here in person it doesn’t feel that way (Raul really struggled but had so many players round him). Tactically just do different, we wanted to contain when we could have stretched them and made it harder for them but we didn’t

I agree Raul was poor, but i don't agree that Coady was at all. Nor were Mout and Neves.

One of those games where we really could've done with the extra man in midfield. Hindsight 20/20 though, I felt fairly confident yesterday (!)

I do think Mou's early yellow hurt as well, he couldn't be nearly as aggressive in pressing
Absolutely, compare to Kouyate who was able to smash us to pieces all game without any punishment (he had a great game)

Ah, I missed most of the first half, probably explains why I'm a bit more neggy on the performance than most!
