Reed has been excellent for Fulham hogging the centre circle.

Another player Mowbray kept dropping.

It can’t always be the player, can it?

Watched Sheff Wed / Leeds yesterday.

Thought Leeds had most possession and very mobile but Wed seemed the most efficient side.

Was a lot of empty seats. £42 tickets when its in sky and lunchtime.

Wed just released a 6 game (discounted) bundle at £200 !

We can't give away 3 game bundles at £45.

Bundles don’t work here, they never have, but the club keeps on with them.

 

And Waggott and Coar can say 'what more can we do' in a deflection tactic.

Thing is, the see us go out and play as badly as we are doing and then seem confused why no one wants to spend what little hard earned cash and time they have to watch that rubbish. No one wants to watch a team put in minimum effort and collapse the moment the tiniest bit of pressure comes their way. 

Even in the position we are in, if our team was fighting tooth and nail to protect leads like we used to under Hughes, Allardyce etc I think a few more might turn up. Not stadium filling of course, but at least there would be a team to be proud of.

Just watch our home gates nose dive after the Preston fiasco, it will only be the likes of Sheff Weds, Leeds, Preston etc that will make our average look respectable.

I kind of agree with this simarly if the team actually got on a run of games yielding wins bums on seats would be here. Mid table, slow football is turning people off.

Actually think hitting it long to Graham was better.

Wigan almost went above us but for the late Bristol City equaliser. They are now on 15 points though but behind us on GD.

Wigan as the away team had 45 per cent possession, 19 shots, 7 on target and 10 corners. They comfortably won the foul count.

What a good side Brentford look though, they're a joy to watch. Some real talent in that side but yet again Benrahma stands out a mile.

What you get when you have a scouting team I suppose.

1.5 million from Nice after stints on loan in various French backwaters in Ligue 2, an absolute steal. They're out there if you look hard enough.

I thought they finally got our scout a passport in the end, didn't they? 🤔

I think QPR playing like Rovers helped a bit.

I think they won in spite of Raya not because of him 

Yep. The Raya Watch on tonight's game would just confirm what we already knew 'decent shot stopper, terrible on crosses'. That one on 87 minutes that he let through his hands was an absolute shocker. Had a QPR player been anywhere close it would have been 2-2 and all the talk would have been about a dodgy keeper throwing 2 points away.

He didn't kick the ball out of play like he regularly did for us, but part of that is down to the fact that Brentford play far less hoofball.

I note Raya ran the length of the field to celebrate the 3rd with team mates. Did he ever do that with us? After all we had the er, infamous amazing team spirit when he played here didn't we?

I think he did it at Leeds away when Mulgrew scored to make it 2-1 in the last minute. Bit awkward for him that we still ended up losing of course, but that was down to the defence in front of him allowing free headers in the box rather than any of his own doing (in fact he almost miraculously kept out the equaliser).

As can be seen, we still don’t know how to hold on to a lead away from home almost a year on...

He always used to go round hugging his team mates just before kick off so I don't think his popularity with the rest of his team mates can be called into question.

Either way, despite the fact Raya's isn't quite the finished article yet, he's infinitely superior to Walton. We've swapped a keeper that makes a few howlers but more than compensates for it by making numerous saves he's no right to make for a keeper who makes numerous mistakes is completely immobile and doesn't pull off any saves you wouldn't expect him to make.
