MotM for Chester for being **** about playing in three positions and coping with it.
I thought Johnstone looked alright. Much better than last season.
Samba did fine. Not his fault he was subbed.
Terry... read some things really well. Then a daft free kick and could've given a penalty.
Taylor... usual solid performance.
Sod it, generally I thought most players were alright. I didn't see as much in Onomah as other people did. Same all season. Probably judging him more harshly as he's not ours which I think is fair enough. Not that he did bad, he's a good player but as soon as it's clear we're not going up I want to see our own promising midfielder's, not Spurs'
Davis held the ball up. I said to the missus that if he took Davis off for Hogan I was gonna go apoplectic. I did and now she's gone up to bed to get away from me. Play Hogan with him, not instead of him. FFS.
Bruce. We could have nicked a couple of goals and won 3-1 and he'd have lost me. Kudos in a way for changing a formation that wasn't working but what the **** was he playing at?! He's scared to lose. This job's too big for him and he's shit scared of it. He'd have taken that 1-1 any day. He changed formation after twenty minutes but didn't have the balls to make he substitution that necessitated till half time, and even then it looked forced from injury
what worries me most is it seems he knew when picking the squad on Monday for the cup match this is how he was setting out. So you'd think we'd been training this week based on this lineup. So even when we change to the right way of playing after twenty minutes, it's a bodge job. A year in the job and he doesn't know what he's doing. The basics aren't there. I keep thinking give him time, it'll come good but why will it? What am I basing that on? I just don't know. I don't want to dislike him as he seems a nice bloke, but he's holding this squad back. You can smell the fear.
