Two big takeaways:

  1. What a difference Jose Sa makes for us.
  2. We have a serious issue up top.
In the end, though, I'd take having a shit day like that in the FA Cup over the league ten times out of ten (at least at this stage).

Coote blows up before the four minutes are even up, despite booking their keeper for time wasting for 40s. Jokeshop.

Donck, Fabio, Podence and Raul were shite. Never much hope when your attacking options offer nothing.

Every time ball went to Podence he tried a stupid flick and got it wrong. Frustrating day. Got what we deserved

Not sure I ever want to see Donk full stop again.
Agreed, his presence wasn't required anyway. We set up too negatively but his "performance" was an all too familiar 2/10. He is absolute dirt.

On the performance overall - terrible first half , then we got into some OK positions 2nd half but nobody on the end of countless balls across the box so their keeper had little to do in the end

Donk shouldn't be played as anything other than a DM

When was the last time Dendoncker had a good game? I genuinely can't remember. He must've had at least one or two at some point because I remember rating him for some reason.

Bruno got it wrong from the start. When the tactic is to hit Donk on those runs you know it’s going to be a bad day. Moutinho had an off day too. Don’t think i could actually tell you what position Podence was playing in and he made the wrong decision time and time again especially for his 2 second half chances. Fabio tried hard and the ref killed him twice but when he did get in behind he made a couple of bad decisions. He needs a goal badly.

Chiquinho looked bright, couple of very good crosses. Fabio attacked one well but Raul was nowhere to be seen for either. We really need him to find a spark from somewhere to have a good end to the season and we really missed Trincao imo.

Not the end of the world but a cup run would have been nice. We need to get players back fit and whoever plays in the front 3 need to start finishing.

Been out all afternoon, doesn't look like I missed much......poor tactics by Bruno or just poor performances by the players? We really, really need to address the lack of goals.
Right I need England to step it up in the second half to save my sporting weekend
