Proof of what,  small crap teams raising their game against the bigger fish in the league? It happens every season in every league,  as well as being evident in our recent stints in League One AND also our ability to end clubs wins streaks in both the Championship and League One in recent years etc etc. 

 

Add to the above the fact that managers and players of these teams usually reference the fact it's a bigger game for them against a club like us,  or when they play at a ground like Hillsborough in this league,  think it's fairly obvious myself.

Plymouth are playing well no doubt. But we are simultaneously playing absolutely dreadful football. They are up for it yes but we look very poor. So many passes not getting to teammates, players looking half asleep. Yes,  teams raising there game is part of this league for a bigger club but that doesn’t explain us just failing to reach our own players with passes!

You'd only ever want a midfield made up of 2 of them, too similar in terms of how they want to play.

Pretty much. 

 

No physicality, no power. 

 

We are in League One, not La Liga.

Going on what Swansea fans said, Byers has never made a tackle in his life. 

Said after Fleetwood that there was a worrying gap between the midfield and defence when this three played. 

 

Fleetwood got into that space numerous occasions, but didn't make much of it.

Agree with your sentiments but not with the conclusion. Just because it’s a big game for the opposites doesn’t mean they can automatically run faster or try harder than us. We need to understand you have to match theses teams for effort and commitment in the first half hour then we can exert our extra quality.
