You'd have been cross & ended up peeping from behind the settee, Swannie.

Negatives- Appalling game management cost us.

Oh and no fit strikers
Just think if we had a striker on the bench :shock: as a club we think one No.9 is sufficient :roll:

Positive: Another two goals for Rodrigo.
Negative: We should be able to see out a 2-0 lead.

We should be signing a striker to replace Bamford imo.

His body clearly can't cope given Marsch has admitted we are having to manage his training.

Posted similar on the match day thread, we should have made changes when we were 2 up :tup:

Is Jack Clarke a Spurs academy product?

No idea, not followed his career, but if he plays for their academy he's both ours and their academy product...

Positives : Great performance for 70 minutes.

Negatives : Games tend to last for 90 minutes plus !

+ Good going forward for an hour

- Real concerns we’ve bought a dud in Kristensen,
Marsch’s system depends on decent full backs, we have problems both sides.

But early days so hope to be proved wrong.

Pos: Two games in and we still have a positive goal difference.

Neg: Poor game management from March spoilt a perfect weekend with Fwank's lot getting beat and Scum getting humiliated.

P; 0-2
N; 2-2
Dropping points from 0-2 up against southampton is pretty dreadful stuff.

Positive - getting a deserved 2 goal lead away from a potential relegation candidate

Negative - Jesse handing them 2 points in simply not reading the team/ conditions/opponents change of tactics.

+ Positive performance for 3/4 of the match
- Jesse, who talked about managing the heat all week, decides not to make subs on 60 minutes, and we consequently run out of steam and Saints take advantage of this. Very poor game management by Jesse, especially when he pinpointed an important factor and then fails to follow through on his words.

Broken Bamford and our full back positions are a big worry, so get your fat wallet dusted off Radz

Agree with most comments. Positive for 70 minutes, although overall I thought the first half didn’t fully come to life.

Negative - Jesse leaving the subs too late. Oh & we need another striker

All our fans have known we need a striker since last season's fiasco, so why can't our board see it?

Depends on good WING backs, not full backs. Kristensen will be fine but probably about the same defensively as Firpo. This is the hardest division to be a defender in, every team is in play, no gimme games that you have in Italy, France and Spain. Struijk got an assist and Kristensen really should have scored.

10 games for a defence to start to settle, it's had two so far. Chelsea will be a test
