Crazy decision for me, we only have Gabbi, Long and Austin as strikers and need some variety, no more so than tonight.

Short report as we were dire, no effort, no character, ponderous going forward, no cutting edge, ineffective in midfield.

Went 3 at the back which seems an odd game to do when at home as we didn't use the extra player up front. Then had Bedenek in the middle where you would have thought Yoshida would have been but guess he cant kick with his left foot so might ask why do it! Could work with good wing backs, Bertrand and Cedric but while McQueen did a good job getting forward Pied was totally ineffective.

Tadic again started, played all 90 minutes and ineffective again, missed our best chance when easier to score, he must have photos of Les Reed in compromising position. Ward Prowse played in the middle and had a terrible game, cannot tackle and poor passing, he will go back this season if not careful. Boufal tried first half second disappeared but again played out wide.

Made subs far to late to have any impact. think 65 minute is earliest sub so far, Gabbi and Long brought on with about 10 minutes left

Forster 5/6 not great probably should have come for the corner for first goal, bit exposed for second.
Stephens 5 not great and really slow bringing the ball out
Bedenek 5 don't expect to see much of him this season, well off the pace, hope not another Gardos.
Yoshida 6 decent blocks but again not strong in the air
Romeau 5 poor game, didn't work with JWP alongside him
Boufal 6 frustrating but does try, made 3 good through balls for McQueen first half and at least made goalie make a save
Ward Prowse 4 really poor, thought he would have wanted to make impression but was the wrong one.
Pied 4 hardly got forward, seems to get a nose bleed near opponents penalty area.
McQueen 7 only bright spot best player on the night got forward well, plenty of crosses also got back well to cover.
Tadic 4 such a selfish player poor all night typical went down off the pitch near the end when we are chasing the game rolling around in agony, hardly touched. All he achieved was running the clock down as ref told him to get up, Play should have gone on as off the pitch ref useless.
Austin 5, didn't get a shot on goal but service was dreadful

Subs

Redmond 4 did nothing when he came on other than give away needless fouls and lose the ball
Gabbadini & Long not long enough to make an impression.

I appreciate early days but I am worried Pellegerino is out of his depth. Tactically seems negative, still only 1 up front in 3 home games. Reluctant to bring on subs and change it, unable to fire up players who should be staking a claim for first team, thinks Austin and Gabba are to similar to play together.

Lemina and Hoote will be critical, new faces and hopefully quality to inspire the others but in Tadic and Redmond think we have a major problem as they are both selfish, but also not that good. If you are selfish and score lots of goals like Ronaldo it doesn't matter, I think these two bring the rest of the team down.

Thanks Matty, must have been tough enduring that!

They will need to improve dramatically to get a result on Saturday..... Huddersfield are going to be well up for it, could see us losing by quite a few, maybe 4-0!

Any chance that someone could offer a quality playmaker and keeper in exchange for VVD? I think I'd be happy with that at the moment......

That's putting it mildly Pete......I am sure Claude has a big grin on his face at the moment
