I'd be more worried about our lack of midfield options. 

 

If Hutchinson and Bannan are out then we really are in trouble. 

Onomah to come back. Pelupessy just isn't good enough though

Not sure Bannon out is a problem. Would like to see a bigger and more physical pairing in there, with some pace. It's all too slow. 

Ey, Bannen being out won’t hurt either.:duntmatter:

Was poor. Let Luton control the game which wasn't great.

 

Reach was worse player by far looked like him and Hector had been on booze all night. 

 

The lads looked leggy and in hindsight we should have multiple changes.

Hector, Palmer, Pelupessy, Matias, Bannan and Nuhiu all had worse games than Reach. 

 

Reach was the only one who did anything.

Also thought he had a good game. Is it just me or were their players all huge? Reminded me of playing U12 footy against teams from pit villages where they’d all be 6ft+ with a full beard

and that was just the women

Good battling performance against a dire, hard-working, organised, outfit.

 

Sometimes you have to acknowledge the opposition’s grit and determination to hang on in there. But yes, not much quality up front today.

 

We tried though. Well done Wednesday.

 

Good to hear the voice of reason.

 

Pointers for me were that Hutch makes a big difference allowing midfield to move forward more confidently.

 

Fletch always looks a handful for the opposition where as Nuhiu seems to drift wide on the right and try and do that hold possession thing... which just isn't working for him anymore.

 

Hector was not as good as he normally is. 

 

Accumulation of things makes us look a bit off it. But not terrible, or outclassed and certainly the booing is embarassing.

I thought i was on my own thinking that 

 

i realise he's the messiah to some but I really think he's too lightweight  constantly shrugged off the ball again today   consequently overtires in challenge and now injured

 

this is an area we really need to address and have needed to for years

ooops .. lol ... the problem is when BB * lol * is isolated and gets chased down or pushed off the ball. When he's got other stronger players around him he performs a zillion times better. If he isn't an option then maybe trying something different would be better. Hector + Onomah in the middle and two proper wingers.

We weren't outclassed, no... but it's another trek to Luton, that we don't need right now,

Why don't we need it right now?

 

Are we in Europe, the latter stages of the league cup?

We have a huge squad, players chomping at the bit to play after injury.

We weren't great, but we were hardly outclassed...

 

 

 

 

Luton's last loss was in early October.  It shows.

 

We weren't outclassed, but they came as a cohesive unit.

For me, he plays in an advanced attacking midfield role, or he doesn't start. 

 

He's too small and lightweight to be trying to boss the central midfield area.

we may have no option but to try someone over 5ft 6in in midfield   we miss 6 footers like err lee

Reach was the only one who did anything.

Matias maybe and Hector wasn't great either.

 

But reach kept stumbling over ball and like a lot just looked a bit fatigued.

 

Unfair to single out Nuhiu though. And Pelupessy was better than Reach too at least he didn't trip over the ball or lose it.

Stop being brainwashed by managers that say players get tired.

lol I'm not brainwashed.

It's a FA CuP game against a League 1 side who hardly get a few thousand. So it'll probably cost the club, more than they make out of it
The players need to concentrate on staying in the Championship, rather than risking injury from not being prepared on a cold winters night.
I'd sooner cut these injuries down... Bannan, Hutch etc was proof today.
 

We hardly gave a to55 today... a wasted chance.

agree  thats 3 of us :biggrin:

this 'quaterback' role is infuriating  get him in the action 15-20 yards further up the pitch with a forward pass in his instructions not this heel turn backpass thing he has going on

I'm hoping that Bruce sees this and plays him in 3 but more advanced with Hutchinson and Pelupessy behind him.

Baz is best playing in a conventional midfield 3 with a defensive player behind in a 4-3-3 formation. Please note that Baz is not a number 10 player in a 4-2-3-1.

So you would be happy if we just got knocked out in the first round of every cup competition just in case someone got injured?

As much as I respect your opinion matey, I just can't get my head around this negativity with the cups..

 

I would wager much dosh that most fans over the age of 30 would say their best days as an owl were certain cup games in 91 and 93.

 

I just feel that fans, especially younger ones have now been brainwashed into thinking cups are insignificant after hearing managers, owners and such ilk bleating on about too many games, tiredness bullshit.

 

Rant over.
