    False 5? First time I've heard of this!

    Agree for the most part @Alpha, I commented at the tine that they were all over us first half, but I see your point of staying contained and letting them huff and puff as we were 1-0 up. All I will say is though, is they found themselves time and time again in crossing situations down the sides of our area, and we just couldn’t stop this from happening. If they had better delivery we’d have been punished. We afforded them far too much space as we tried to stay contained and stop late runners. Their “false 5” style was really effective and entertaining to see. The good news is, getting the ball out wide and crossing it seems to be the only thing they can do. Second half we figured them out and reduced them to only a couple of similar opportunities, while keeping our own style and dominating until the end. Think Keogh and Tomori and Huddz’ positioning and responsiveness were integral to how we nullified them. Our CBs were often out wide anticipating or helping his full back deal with being overloaded, while Huddz tucked in and filled the gap left behind. Was a great tactical game to witness.

    Unpopular topic? - South Stand

    Be interested to know if on average we’ve scored more goals at that end since moving the away fans into the corner.

    He did have a rager for Billy Sharp.

    Looks every bit the part. As the players around him learn how he plays the game he’s only going to get more opportunities. Yet another lesson to be patient with new signings.

    That’s how you come out in the second half. Great game to watch, we played the right way, right attitude, good account of ourselves on the telly. Dud done good. Great result.

    Here’s that 3 at the back you all ordered. Be interesting to see it for 10 mins at least.

    “That was a great goal.” - Lampard to his bench.

    Lovely stuff. Patient. Controlled. Quality passing. Great run and finish. What a goal. We can be proud of that one.

    Would have taken Wilson off instead of Waghorn. We’re too lightweight up top, it’s not sticking.

    More of that please, Waghorn. Carved a left-footed curler out of nothing.

    Bright end to the half, but that doesn’t cover the fact that Utd were in control for most of that. They’ve created plenty of chances. Another day they could have had a 2/3. How we react second half will be interesting, because another half like that we’ll lose. Not because we’re playing badly at all, just that they are a proper threat with every attack.
