They have us on the ropes right now, need to steady and get to the half.

thats expected. I think we been rather good to not come under too much pressure. We are controling the game more than they are thats for sure. I like this formation, might just be a one of but we look pretty comfortable out there.

We have eased their pressure off with a couple of long possessions. Not the most exciting to watch, but this is good stuff for developing. Coady and Morgan are both looking more comfortable,

Agree. Even Cole look good in this set up, and that speaks volume.

May I have some of whatever you are taking?

To be fair, Cole has not looked woeful as expected, just would not go as far as 'good'

Ball-watching, static display by most out there. We can win this. There just needs to be the desire to take it beyond what we have already. No one wants to try to bring the play a little faster or try something unexpected like dribble a bit further on instead of cross earlier.

Well taken goal. Didn't even have time for the re-start, how frustrating. We can still nick a draw, come on men!

Well that was poor from Coates, and you always knew he was going to dink it when Jones came out and the ball was in the air. I don't understand how we let that happen; with that little time left in the half, they were always going to play a long ball to Traore. We just let it happen.

Not too worried, though. I never expected a win and at least we aren't being dominated.

Balls...ten seconds before the whistle...rotten...

Didn't deserve that. Been so comfortable apart from a couple of individual errors. Poor by Coates.

And now we know why Jordan Hendersond does not play in league games, as if anyone didn't already know why Rodgers keeps him on the bench.

Why Brad why? Should have not come out like that.
No argument from me that he shouldn't have come out, but it was a goal either way. With the ball bouncing you knew he was going to dink it over Brad, but if Brad hadn't come out Traore would have just ripped a volley past him before Brad's feet left the ground.

45 minutes of decent stuff, but what a bit of skill at the break. Too bad.
