Woeful, inadequate.

The manager had the opportunity to change it at half time, match up, replace Parslow with Paddy ( technically best player at the club) and be positive. It was still nil- nil after all!

Erm, replace a right-back with a left-sided central midfielder? So we only had 3 defenders on the pitch?

That's some crayzee excrement you're smoking.  

Some changes were certainly required earlier in the second half, but that's not one of them. Personally, I'd have taken off the utterly ineffectual Neilson for Paddy who couldn't have been any less use going forward than Scott was tonight.

The fact that we didn't have any other attacking options on the bench (other than the lad Oates) shows how poorly balanced the squad is at present with the current injuries.

They played 352 and Neilson was our only attacking threat all night, were you there? Their 2 strikers gave our 4 defenders more problems than our 2 strikers gave their 3 defenders. Big Clayton didn't even break sweat.

The fact we dont have any more attacking options is that hurst is probably hoping he spots a akinfenwa peter crouch love child somewere...

The man has had plenty of time to sort out his loans or permanant striking options but refuses to bring what we need which is pace!

Are you sure you were there? Neilson was utterly hopeless tonight, probably his worst performance for us that I can remember. I think he made 1 good pass in the first half for LJL's chance but otherwise did absolutely sweet F.A.

The general way things went was:

Neilson is passed the ball. He turns inside, tries to take on a man, ends up crabbing across the pitch, twisting and turning without getting anywhere and ignoring simple passes to teammates. He then eventually loses the ball after running into a blind alley, loses it by attempting a pass which is never on or makes the simple pass long after the opposition has had time to get back to defend in depth.

He was hopeless tonight. Just the way it is with him, unfortunately. When he's good, he's very, very good, when he's bad he's pretty useless. If he was more reliable, he'd be playing at a higher level.

As you noted, their two strikers (ably supported by their midfield) caused our back four problems tonight, but you're saying we should have removed a defender a half time when we were still level? Sorry, I still don't get this, especially as our wingers aren't the types capable of playing as wing-backs.

Oh do get real man! Crouch has scored a few.

Casting vote from me - Neillson was poor tonight IMO but still won MOM???!!!!

We are very weak up top - final third lacks spark and cutting edge
