Cardiff were pooh and it was 2 points dropped, they have to thank an inept referee. 

 

I'm sure Colin will come on and praise his team saying they deserved a point.

Horrific refereeing and poor substitutions/game management.

to be fair, no one spotted Tomlin's raised arm against Borner - commentator said he plays the game hard or summat - I expect he'd have been sent off if the ref or lino saw it.

 

The free kick, whilst soft, was unnecessary in that we constantly dive in or clumsily get in the way in our last third - we need to sort the amount of free kicks we concede. We can't hold out if we continue doing this.

 

The player jumping around behind the wall is comical in that not one of our players protested before the kick was taken - i.e. in the refs ear pointing/making a scene. The lino and ref saw what was going on yet allowed the goal - I struggle to understand the laws these days, so have the conclude it was legitimate, which is a farce.

.....we don’t convert our chances. Game should have been put to bed by half time. Fed up of throwing away points because we stop playing.

I’d have snapped your hand off for a point before kick off especially after Westwood pulled out. Now should we have won, probably. But I’d it still a decent point, definitely!

We basically have nothing to offer from 60 mins onwards when Fletcher gets tired.

 

Need to clear out the forwards and get some pace in the team

Yep. All that... and not being able to score a second goal for some reason.  

 

We can do lots of ‘nice stuff’ all day long unchallenged... but aren’t ruthless enough to kill off the other team.

Their goal was coming from 55 mins onwards.

Despite the clearly offside goal (and free kick that wasn’t) they deserved to score and we deserved to get punished for giving away silly fouls and the ball for most of the second half.

This is the main thing.

Yes, the ref was shocking but Cardiff were there for the taking.

Even in the first ten minutes of the second half we should've been three up.

A second goal would've sunk them they were that bad. They would not have come back from that.

But then we stopped doing the things that made Cardiff sit off us and decided to defend the last 35 mins plus the obligatory 5 mins added on.

But absolutely so frustrating to watch cos like you say, we stop trying to score and think we can Arsenal it to the end.

It never, ever works trying to invite and defend against constant pressure.

Fed up of us doing this when we're so much better than that.
