Can't complain about much in that half other than the ref. If we can keep up this kind of performance then I'd say a lot of us were correct in thinking that we have a team of very good players that were being held back.
The perfoamnce was certainly more dynamic, more attacking than any for a while.

On individual basis, as I've said before you play Tav as a SM or not at all.

We're missing Fry at the back

Not much difference, no need to criticise the previous, we’ve got a few players back now thankfully, and had a two week break.

Maddo making an **** of himself. It was a foul on Watmore and even if it wasn't Lino was flagging for the foul. So play stopped.
A referee should never overrule a flagging linesman

Fry, McNair and Dijksteel would all be perfect in a Wilder back 3, any of them either side of Bamba would work. Even all 3 together would probably work too, Bamba has to run out of steam eventually.

I'm so furious. Football operates on such a grand scale, every matchday a spectacle for thousands and a payday for many, yet the entire thing can be spoiled in a moment by one single lunatic in a black shirt. It's nonsensical.

I'd maybe like to see Coburn on for Sporar at some point. More dynamic and some improvements, but not massively so. Think Howson is stealing a living as a centre mid these days.

Coburn is the only sub warming up without a bib on, but I'd assume that if he was coming on soon he'd be in for the team talk.

How did the ref not see that elbow? Or at least a foul?

There was nothing in front of him, and the only thing to be looking at!

Exactly, not when the Lino is 5x closer and unobstucted view.

I wonder if Wilder has told Tav to get rid of the ball ASAP. Tav drives me mental because he wants to hold onto the ball forever but in this game he's been getting it and moving it on with his next touch, more than I've ever seen him before.
I think our movement in the attacking third has been a lot better today so probably has allowed Tav to find players easier and release the ball quicker. Wilder probably has had a word though

Too scrappy. We're trying to play with flair, but are still failing to pass to each other in promising positions.

In other news, I don't know why I get excited when we have a corner.
I don't know why many teams fans get excited when they get a corner tbh, as statistically only about 2% of corners actually lead to a goal.
