Well we probably rode our luck a bit with a couple of last minute blocks and Brentford hitting the woodwork in first half and again we didn't create anything other than putting the ball in the net but we weren't totally outdone today and a couple of players showed some good play in particular garner who was great and got MOTM. Decent point and not totally undeserved although Brentford should have won.
I know some will hail this as a moral victory of sorts as we got a point and enjoyed a fair amount of attacking possession (albeit it was mostly completely ineffective) but the quality of football just isn't good enough either for us to get anywhere in the league or to entice me back to the City Ground when it re-opens.
I hate to say it but you almost find yourself hoping we lose enough to get relegated, which would surely be the wake up call the club needs to reform the approach to on pitch matters for the better.
We were certainly better but again why not take off Amoebi and give Knockhaert 20?
Yea exactly my Thoughts. He would have torn them a new one in last 20 and probably would have been brought down in box or would at least of had a go on goal. Ameobi doesn't offer fuck all in the air and he's the biggest on the pitch, never has done. If you notice he even sits on the edge of the D at attacking corners! He's 6ft 4 ffs
It was heading for the corner flag till it took that deflection. In fairness to Christie I've been his biggest critic, I thought/think he's diabolical, but the last few games he's been different gravy, so credit where its due.
Most probs the best ive seen us play for a long time..might of sneaked a 3 points here...I still worry about both our full backs Cafu was decent today,struggles with knowing where to be and diving.Garner and worral are by far our best players by a country mile, Shame both will be gone for next season.
Rode our luck for sure but would have snapped someone's hand off before the game if they were offering a draw.
We certainly can't attack with 11 players though because Figs, Bong, Cafu and Ameobi can't pass fucking wind. They're so bastard frustrating. How the fuck Ameobi gets in that side about Knockaert is beyond me.
We can easily replace those 3 of those and the other with Worrall when he's fit.
Garner was excellent and thought Christie had a good game as well.
