      Disagree 73. The problem yesterday was the system and how Ollie set the team up, not so much the players. The reason Freeman was nullified was because when he had the ball he had no outlet for it due to the total lack of width in the team and because of the totally ineffective Mackie in front of him. Therefore Freeman, as the only creative outlet in the team, probably felt under more pressure to retain the ball for longer in order to try and create something alone.

      The person most to blame yesterday was the manager for being completely out-manoeuvred by Bruce. Yes, technically they have better players, but on a tactical level we hadn't the game to them on a plate, thereby making it one hell of a lot easier for them.

      how long is he going to carry on with this 352 farce..... playing midfielders, fullbacks and wingers as wingbacks.

      he signed for wingers in the summer transfer window, and along with a polish international, but yet he plays a system with no wingers.

      if you want to keep the three midfielders in the team then play 451.

      otherwise play 442 with woslek on the right and wheeler or lualua on the left.

      I agree though that Freeman was below par yesterday but saying that, so was the entire team - which again comes back to the manager for getting tactically outclassed by Bruce, who saw us over-running his team for the first half hour, so he changed it and the game was theirs from that point onwards because Ollie had zero plan B.
      I've got to agree with your assumption the pass was declined to Mackie as he's a waste of space. I said to my mate early in the game the players seemed not to have any faith in Mackie's selection and wondered if they thought Sylla would have been a better option. Whatever, how uninspiring an attack of Mackie/Smith was. I bet Bruce told his defence to have the afternoon off

      Worry not, Olly will get to hear our advice at some point and the formation will change, he knows we’re right.

    Well deserved point and in my opinion a decent display, could have nicked it at the end with Lynch one on one with keeper. Seemed to set up as a 4-3-3 although that did seem flexible. Whatever it was team seemed well balanced, only real poor performance was Washington who again was very poor, seemed to be denied a clear penalty when Smith was again hauled to the floor. MOTM was clearly young Smythe who at times tore them to pieces, I think we have a little gem there, Eze also looks a fantastic prospect and hopefully nex...
