Miss him a lot in the middle - experience, control, calm head, even goals - since he's been out we've lost our groove.

The player we missed today was Hutch, sitting in front of the back 4, and crunching that number 10.

He’s one of the worst of the lot for panic stations near the end, if he drops any deeper he’d be finishing the game sat in the back of the net

Agree - Hutch is good in his own right but I don't think his ommision stops us 'ticking'.

How much luongo will it take before he's back?

Sadly cant agree at all. Hutchinson is the only midfielder we have who can actually put a tackle in.Swansea had freedom of the park today.

What we missed today was basic finishing. 

 

We purposely played 2 up top so we were always going to be short in the middle. Shame we missed guilt-edged chances over and over again.

It's a fair point. Goal keepers and defenders take a lot of stick when they make mistakes because their mistakes often lead to goals. Swansea took the lead with their first real chance that we gifted them thanks largely to Westwood's error and in part Fox for not being aware he didn't need to concede a corner and we also had the chance to make a clearance after Westowwod's gaff.

 

It was all the more frustrating because we had been the better side and with better finishing and decision making in their area we should have been 2 or 3 goals to the good by that point.

Fingers crossed that Luongo is back for this weekend.  Should be the first name on the team sheet for Saturday, if he’s available, given his performances so far this season.

 

I’ve no idea what injury he’s had, or when he’s due to be back.  Not ideal that he’s missed the last 3 fixtures.

 

Our results have taken a dip with Luongo not being in the side; 2 points out of 3 games is a concern.
