Small squad syndrome, lack of quality in depth, no real meaningful competition for places. So there is an element of more covert complecancy, the usual suspects are guaranteed a start.

Let's hope we can turn this around and they man up.

A bit more promising and threatening from Leeds

Hes had one start.
But constantly injured. We're not in the position where we can go without an £18m signing.

Ok, let’s be honest and it’s not a criticism. His tactical mind is play the same way every game, great in the championship not here, others will find him out. For Bamford’s goals he has a shocking % for shots/goals and MB continues, zero plan B. Defence very poor, goals against!!! Crawley game was appalling, enough said. Every player giving their best but not good enough. If we do not get a few results then a fear for a battle coming on, not doom just realistic. Yea when it works great, think teams know what we are about now. Just a view and not a criticism

What is MB persisting with Jack on the right?
Although, apparently he's a centre forward too????

If given a choice between binge watching Mrs Browns Boys or Pascal Struijk play in midfield...

I’d go with Mrs Browns Boys.

Why do we keep crossing it when their defenders are all giants?
