Brentford V Derby County

Latest Updates

Did you watch the match?

During McClaren #1 we had a team which cost a combined £3m-ish and we were playing attractive football. Aside from Leicester and one or two other teams in my opinion we were pretty much outplaying everyone and not in my opinion we were scoring lots of goals. Fast-forward a few years and we have a squad costing about £25m (more than the majority of teams in this division) and we're playing as if the teams we're facing are two leagues above us.

Against Birmingham and Brentford we were entirely despressing to watch. We looked scared. I'd want us to show more initiative if we were in the Premier League, never mind against two struggling Championship sides.

I'm not sure how you can dress this as anything other than pretty disastrous.

That was to accommodate JL and Jonno was probably an experiment to see how it went. 

A draw at Brentford I'd take that thanks. 

There's another much easier way to accommodate Ledley - Drop Johnson - He played the full game on Saturday, no reason not to 'rest' him

And if it was an experiment - How could he not see at half time that it wasn't working? He kept it that way until Ledley went off on about 85 minutes

It's not the result - It's that we were incredibly lucky to get that result, looked like the second best side by a mile and the team set-up and tactical decisions were bad

We've played all of the bottom 5 now this season - And only beaten one of them

Tom Lawrence isn't the problem - He was the only sparkle in an otherwise dour side yesterday

Answer this though - Is Bradley Johnson a creative, dynamic number 10? Because that was the role he was given yesterday...

Was not at the match so probably not too qualified to comment but surely he is played there to pick up scraps from the forwards?

Scored 15 goals for Norwich in their promotion season when played there before.

Against Ipswich mate. Can't presume we'd get anything as they always seem to turn us over.

Home form is good with Rowett check the stats.

We were unlucky to concede that sort of goal after all the hard work in the 86 minute

Lawrence needs to be on the left so he can cut in and shoot!!!!!! its quite obvious that hes wasted on the right.

He played in that position last night and done a really good cross which leads our goal.
