Archer deserves a chance and I say that knowing that Archer is poor himself.
Surely there's only so many bad games a keeper can have?

I honestly don't know what to think anymore.

Bola, Fry, Morsy and Watmore should play; Tavernier of course if fit.
The rest I could care less.

Archer can't play.
He was purchased for reasons too important and confidential for you to know about.
See Van La Parra

The keeper needs dropping
Tired performances from Howson and McNair
Our defender with pace , Dijksteel , should have been the last man , but even then , he was at times out paced by Nahki Wells .
Fisher had his worst game , but no one came out in glory .
Watmore tried , Kebano tried , without looking like scoring .
Fletcher looked sluggish from the off , and was not 100% for me .
Johnson is just not very good . Too many wrong decisions . Yes he put the ball in for Fry , but how many times has he made the wrong decision .
Akpom is worse . He is a nothing player , offers nothing , does very little , and should be given a good roasting , but , will he care .
Britt has not lived up to his price tag , but take the price tag away , he is not as fit and dynamic as he was previously , and strolls through games .
Laing is not match fit , and for me should be no where near the 1st team. He looked like a pub player
Bola and Morsy ( just ) can hold their head up , the rest need to look in the mirror .
We do not look as fit as most teams ? Too late now to up the fitness , but why is this ?
Fitness comes up in my post a few times , what is the reason ?
Or am I wrong ?
Our record at home is terrible . Why ?
Onwards and upwards we say , it's not over until it's over . But we are on a poor run of form and lack consistency .
Cardiff are on a roll , and have a way of playing .
Can we step up ?
Who knows which Boro will turn up .

With the players we have I would be playing 4231 for certain.

As soon as Bolasie is fit he would play up top for me...you could fit Tav in instead of one of the others and just rotate them but that's the system I would play from now until the end of the season !!!!

Djiksteel Fry McNair Bola
Howson Morsey

If we have to have one of them I'd rather have Britt than Akpom on the bench. Scoring 1 in 10 chances is (marginally) better than never being involved at all

Bettinelli has been poor of late, but he was the least of our problems tonight.

He's been poor in nearly every single game.
He was terrible for the third goal.

He's not the only player that needs dropping on the basis of last night, but he is the only one that's a long standing issue.
