What is wrong with sound in Sky Arena
10 mins gone we will need some excellent patience play to break them down
Nice cross from Liam, we need to keep working.
Their Keeper is being subbed, injury??
New Keeper, we need to shoot and cross well for the rest of this half
15 mins gone. They are only pressing in the first 2/3rds of the pitch to keep their shape. A cross from the byeline would be ideal
I notice they are pressing Yan hard once the ball is passed to him. We will need patience here.
20 mins gone, we need to entice them out of their defensive lines
Like last weekend we are lacking spark in midfield and upfront
Awful marking from corner.
0-1 to weds. This will be tough now as we dont have 2 goals in us.
We are crossing like we have tall forwards to win the header. We need to get to the byeline and put in a flat pass across the goal.
70% possession but not a single attempt on goal. Going to be a long night.
They are already running clock down. At the moment we dont look like we have any idea how to score and little on the bench to change upfront
Its looking like Pullis has us worked out. We havent had a single shot on goal and dont look like one is coming anytime soon.
We need a goal before halftime, if we are to get back into this match. If we dont I cant see a way back to get a draw nevermind a win.
Like the weekend we are making them look good, we are very predictable.
Think Cullen be hooked half time not his night tonight looks out of his depth
You can see a second goal coming from a set piece
This my friends is as piss poor as it gets
Our midfield are too distance from each other. Matt and Smith are too deep and Yan is being pressed out of the match
Just one attempt on goal (in injury time). Need changes now.
Ayew for Cullen?
Palmer for Dhanda?
Need something to change.
What are we doing floating crosses into the box, when their players overtop our forwards by about 6 inches.
Half time and unless we make some big changes this match has gone.
Pulis masterclass so far. Defend deep. Score from a set piece (our defending was abysmal)
Ayew needs to be on to start the second half
Andre for Cullen
Palmer for Yan
Bushmills for rioja
Pitch looks dreadful, tempo even worse, players looked drugged - playing in a haze.
If ever there was a call for the proverbial game of two halves, this is it.
I would sub Grimes for Fulton, although Smith is a bit anonymous
Agree with both of those. I'd hook Grimes for Fulton as well
Yep dreadful first half. Only Woodman, Bennett, Naughton and Bidwell come out with any credit. Everyone else has been dreadful especially Lowe, Smith, Grimes, Cabango. Dhanda has been dreadful.
See what the second half brings.
Yep...grimes off, been dreadful
Smith about as anonymous as a midfielder can be. A safe square ball every 5 minutes, losing his man and little break up play. Needs hooking.
