We were playing Birmingham at 'home' rather than Watford away. Forest did bugger all and in actuality Reading created very little either bar the chances we gave them. In the first half Sheaf played one of theirs into the box and Juke was allowed a free header from point blank, thankfully they came to nothing.

All the change in setup did was remove our attacking threat while the errors remained. Nobody has said 'change the formation' in response to goals going in, they have all said 'stop making stupid mistakes in the last 10 minutes'
Despite the ifs buts maybes and could have been - we played

Watford
forest
Birmingham

What were the results?

It’s 4 games and the system had zilch to do with a 25 yard header, a wretched goalkeeping effort or a o hare header

Oh and we lost 3 of them conceding 9 goals
Reading + Forest + Watford = 3? Unless you're counting 20 minutes at the end last night as a whole game. System did perhaps have something to do with the abundance of sitters we wasted in the latter 2 games.

I’d go 3412 but who plays the role behind the strikers? O’Hare is the obvious answer but has been poor the past few games. The other options are Shipley, Allen or move Hamer further forward. We definitely need to start with 2 strikers.

I downloaded the new macOS in the week and have had to play around with a few stuff.

Hope this is okay for everyone.

Our plight seems a little more visual when forest above are on double figures. You would think Wednesday and derby would improve at some stage, they aren’t relegation candidates normally and both switched managers. Still confident but it’s going to be a tough long season. January will be interesting in who we bring in but that will be key on how far adrift we are.

You been proven wrong again. Stop crying about things thay might happen as if they have
Have a read of the expectations thread then read this one. It's fucking hilarious.

Several people, quite rightly, saying this season will be a struggle and staying up will be an achievment.
Same people melting down.on this thread because the season is turning out as they predicted! Comedy gold.

Based on what? The Forest game was dropped points, this doesn't fall into the same category.
Based on we played an average side at best who hardly score goals give how we have cut open better teams this season and scored we set up far too negative against the wrong team therefore my opinion is we dropped points

Stop twisting it. All you ever say is the gap to teams above us will widen every fucking week and it doesn't happen
