Back 3 needs work

McNair and Fry are our best pairing, and it's great we have Hall too. Why does McNair need resting?
He looks a shadow of the player he was earlier in the season, constantly out of position or getting caught on the ball. The other two have been in and out recently, I would give him a break to see if it can set him straight.

Maybe tonight but no other game. Are you Grant Halls dad? :)

Never a fan of 3 at the back, I actually feel like we switch off more with the extra man.

Some of the defending was bizarre.

Think with Cardiff’s aerial presence and long throws and Kieffer Moore it would be criminal to play a back 3 with McNair and Dijksteel. Especially after that performance. It’s a game for Grant Hall.
 
Maybe if mcnair played as a 3rd centre back and not a left winger we wouldnt have been so short at the back. We are much better with 3 but Morsy or howson need to support bola more and let the 3 at the back defend.
