    Dean Smith

    He's abandoned plan a, the high press swashbuckling attack mode which was so enjoyable. Can we have it back please.

    Slows down play an absurd amount. Awful distribution.

    Dean Smith

    Isn't that what this was supposed to be. I'm hoping he can turn it around. All that needs to happen is going back to his first day at the club. Play slower progressive football regardless of the whingeing fans. Switching to pumping it up the pitch is a losing tactic.

    Dean Smith

    The sad thing is that it increasingly looks like Dean has gone down the Lambert route of getting scared and dropping their preferred attacking tactic. We now aren't playing high press, playing deeper and less effectively than in his first game. He needs to go back to day one, ignore the pressure and play his game all over again. I find it odd as Bees fans criticised the fact Smith sides go for it come what may.

    If he's not in the reckoning to start this season, I can't see us taking up the option tbh

    I only watched first half, had to go out. I think that's a fair summary of it (we didn't create much in the other 25 minutes, but held ball better and didn't have them coming onto us).

    Looked a lot better for last 20. Jedinak cannot pass.

    Why's Tammy standing in the net?

    Agree. I've seen a few times where he's chased something he'd have easily made 12 months ago and he can't. Adapting to degrading body is hard... I don't think he'll be useful as a result. A shame, he seems like a great guy.

    I think you're wrong.

    Tyrone Mings

    That's because the action is fundamentally dangerous. Running generally is not.

    No way was it deliberate. Just unfortunate.
