What is patently clear to me is that Grimes is not cut out for this league and Dave will need someone decent (Bridcutt?) beside him. Concur with everything else you say, three changes to the starting line-up and keep Roofe on. Needs game time to settle at the higher level.
I rewatched the game yesterday and what is apparent is commentators probably only mention 1 touch in 4 ....so as teams play the ball around in defence the commentary focus' on everything bar player name, they virtually never mention a tacklers name unless bad or spectacular. So not hearing his name means little and maybe they ignore naming him as Diagouraga hardly trips off the tongue
As I say nothing much came through the middle...(Goals from corners, a penalty from a move down the right and a speculative cross field FK catching Coyle asleep cost us the 3 goals) Last season it was through the middle that was the problem a lot of the time.
Grimes may need time, I see him as a left sided midfielder and I think he'll give us options later in the season, he doesn't appear to be a number 10.
