Havnt seen stats yet, we must have had shed loads, after all large part of the game consisted of Klose and Zimmerman passing the ball to each other...Sideways!

I hope Murphy and Oliviera are up early today having some shooting practise after last nights slash at the ball fiasco.

Gunn needs to look at the match video as some of his balls out were simply ludicrously stupid at times!

Does Farke believe our present players have the talent for his style of football, it showed too often last night that we certainly do not!

After the substitutions that were 15 minutes too late we still finished up with two holding midfielders against bloody Burton Albion at home...Wakey Wakey!

I could go on!

Please Mr Pritchard hurry up and get fit

Hear Hear.

I have had issues with the 'number of passes method' of establishing possession. Passing the ball to each other in your own half, which we did a lot, will boost the possession stats (69% in our case) but does not show Anything about the game. It seems the (few) games we have won had less than impressive possession figures.

We have enough players capable of scoring goals from time to time yet all too often there was nobody in place to take advantage of the loose ball or cross. That cross from Josh in the second half was sublime and Nobody ran on to it to score.

Nothing much to add about Gunn; he was very much Curate's Egg last night.

When we used to play Swansea, their passing game was way superior to what we play now and yet we would often win against them because we pressed and harried to not give them the chance to play their game. Burton did something similar to us but their finishing was as bad as us.

We each had 2, Two shots on target.

The type of possession based football played by the majority of our squad looks reminiscent of a player trying to get rid quick because he doesn't know what to do with it (except for the odd couple who would rather keep it to themselves until they lose it. There is no sense of adventure and too many believe that their quality is actually better than it is. I appreciate that it is a work in progress but DF needs to wake up and start learning from his mistakes.

We've been far more successful when we've not had much ball. I think the passing game will come, but it depends on total confidence in the defence. The rear guard now seems to have fallen into place so expect improvements offensively too.

I think our offensive capabilities will only improve when we kick loser Jerome out of the club and buy a proper striker instead
