    You could drive a bus through there

    Why dont they talk to each other -we even do that when playing 7 - a -side . It's oh so basic .

    Forestieri Injured...

    Watched it on stream - Bannan telling F F to get off , and not nicely , before he was subbed . Listening to R Sheff at same time and Brian Laws was trying to politely say that Joss aint got a clue and why is it only Bully trying to instill a bit of urgency and encouragement . Pathetic .
  5. We dont seem to have a formation or tactics . We've no energy , appear lethargic ,no-one to give em a kick up the bum on the pitch and no-one doing it off the pitch . Whatever happened to Bully - how come he doesn't try to influence the game from the side like he used to do when he was a player . It all looks quite pathetic at the moment .

    Luhukay out.

    Does Jos pick the team or D C ( or his son ) ? Surely he wouldn't want to make so many illogical changes as a UEFA qualified coach ?

    Suspect supertition

    'cos we dont have any wingers . If we played 4 4 2 they'd have someone to pass to out wide ,rather than playing between each other .

    We need Westwood back

    Thanks Snoots - point taken . Dawson tends to spread his body and saves with his feet . Westwood seems to get down with his arms and body in such situations . I'm not saying Dawson is a bad keeper , he's a great prospect , but imo , Westwood is better . Yesterday was a total shambles and we needed strong characters out there - I didnt see any , apart from Nuhiu when he came on . Westwood may be stroppy , but he does command his area and respect from his team mates even if he is a bit of a prat .

    We need Westwood back

    I think Dawson saves the ones most keepers would be expected to save . Westwood saved the ones most of us thought were already in the net .

    We need Westwood back

    Westwood would have saved the first - his judgement of angles and positioning is better and he does give his team mates some direction . Still dont get what's gone off there .

    Man of the Match & Ratings

    Thought we were an absolute shambles tonight . For me Bannan shaved it just for trying to make something happen and put in some effort , although even he ran out of steam later on . I thought Penney got found out big time - ,as in the W Brom game , trying to do too much at times . We ;seem to think hoofing it forward is the done thing to do against 6.6 defenders which never paid of until Nuhiu came on . If you look at the first goal , never let the ball bounce like that , but again it was after you , no after you , and as someone else said , just go through it . Dawson got his angles wrong if you look at the replay from behind the goal and again another example of why Westwood should be in there. The passing was appalling all night , whether it be 5 yards or 50 . The second goal summed up the night - nobody taking responsibility for organising the defence and sorry , Lees is not captain material , but there again , I dont know who is . We got what we deserved - nothing .

    Sports psychologist

    Mcmigo doesnt realise you have to be a psychologist first - usually takes about 5 years to qualify .They may then specialise in clinical ,educational , criminal ,industrial ,etc , including sports psychology . But firstly they are Psychologists who choose to work with expertise in a particular field . All of which is entirely related to good mental health .

    Sports psychologist

    Having worked in M H for many years I can assure you that good M H often has a bearing on performance , football or any other walk of life and obviously availability of a link to someone with a knowledge of social psychiatry and psychology has to be of benefit for everyone .
