Probably one of the worst halves of football under Carlo. Dreadful. We need better back up players...Centre Midfield especially is just horrendous to look at with Gomes,Davies and James just not mobile enough to play together - even against Rotherham.

Minor positive - Olsen has looked solid again and Godfrey also looks like he will be an aggressive option at centre back.

Again this half we have not been brilliant, like quite a few of our recent games even the wins over the weeks, but at the end of the day the win is what counts

Until we rely on the same players against good players and get exposed, which performances like these confirm will happen.

Enjoyed hearing Carlo in this one. Nice to know he feels the frustration like we do.

For me I’d look at making subs soon:

Simms for Tosun (he’s scored but done not much else)
Bernard for James (he’s got minutes which is the main aim here)
Nkounkou for Digne (same reason as above).

Tosun hasnt done much wrong.

All three of those subs don't address the major issue of us having no midfield. Nothing would change if you made those subs.

I'm not really sure why Davies is getting slaughtered here. Yeah he's not the greatest but he's working with a load of crap on his side of the pitch. Coleman is a disaster in possession. Godfrey isn't great. Iwobi has no clue how to find space because Coleman is constantly running into him. And Gomes isn't very helpful at all. I just don't know what he's meant to do.

Gomes Coleman and unfortunately James were the worst players on the pitch.

Without the option to put DCL on as a guaranteed target for long balls we risk spending 45 minutes defending without James and Digne.
