    Bird was my Derby MotM too tbh. I thought he did well defensively and looked to be more positive going forward. He also looked composed when pressured and all in all was the least of our worries.

    Spot on it’s our decision making in both boxes that’s costing us points we deserved something from our last 2 games and we look more lively going forward but we are finding a way to lose matches by gifting sloppy goals and being wasteful at the other end.

    Same players that were top of the form league?
    Obviously Beilik played his part but I the 6 games after his injury we still put together a run of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats.
    Anyone who tells us it’s solely down to the players being poo is talking out their arris

    What concerns me are four key things. 
    1) our defending from set pieces- in our last 3 games we've been woeful defending from set pieces, Luton, Reading, and Norwich have all had 2 or more chances from corners or crossed free kicks. We've given away numerous free headers and have had a few lucky handballs waved away- against teams like Preston, Birmingham etc. this is a critical area we need to tighten up on. 

    2) Our lack of creativity- It's not only that we don't score many we don't create many guilt edge chances either. We are too often reliant upon a shot 20 yards out to get a goal rather than creating 1 vs 1's or a clear shot inside the box. We're chronically poor in our chance creation and composure in the final third. 

    3) Our lack of goals- CKR is quickly reverting back to the player we thought we'd signed after his initial purple patch. Apart from him we have Gregory who doesn't ooze goals either- essentially we've got 2 strikers whose skill set is pretty much exactly the same (great at hold up not to so great at scoring). Our wide players and midfielders don't contribute much to the goal tally either- at this point I'd welcome back Waghorn just because he can take a good freekick now and again. 

    4) Our current form- Our form has absolutely nosedived in the past dozen games or so.  We're simply not winning games or getting enough points on the board atm and we've got 5 games to turn it around. We played well in the second half against Norwich and Luton but I can't remember the last time we looked solid and played well for 90 minutes. Both Blackburn and Preston are in as bad as form as us so winning at least 1 of these games is imperative but I can't say I'm confident we will.

    If Rooney can't rouse the team for a performance regardless of the circumstances on Friday then that would further damage his credentials. Remember when we had various articles about how he was rebuilding morale and motivation when he first took over....

    I think the midfield pairing of Shinnie and Bird deserves a mention. 
    Both did well, 1st half held on whilst one of the best midfields in the division looked to break us down, 2nd half they took the game to the Norwich midfield and had them on the back foot.
    Shinnie did what he’s so good at doing, ratting, shielding the defence and bring the ball away from danger. Bird was much improved, much more mobile, good interceptions carried the ball forwards with purpose and tried to pass through the lines (his passings not quite back to its best but it was more purposeful today)
    Definitely a pairing showing promise

    Yes Waghorn was better in his last game but we've all seen him play better than that under Lampard, same with Lawrence.
    Jozwiak we have also seen play very well for Poland.
    My point is that a great manager finds a way to get the best out of the players he has and i'm not sure Rooney is doing that yet.

    Overall a good performance, especially 2nd half. It's amazing what can happen when we actually get on the front foot and start pressing teams rather than sitting back like we usually do.
    One thing is clear though, we are shocking at picking the final pass.
