I'm in two minds about who to blame...
The game was crying out for us to switch to 451 after we 'luckily' went ahead 4-1. We palyed some good stuff in that 20 minute spell, but before and after in the first half we were getting overrun with their runners from midfield feeding off Parkin's holdup play.
The change in formation never came. If Amdy Faye isn't going to play in this game, when is he going to play?
On the other hand in Grayson's defence, in his post match interview he highlighted all of these concerns, and said he gave the lads a rollicking at HT for not trying to close the game down. So the players must take their share for not doing that.
The formation was possibly less to blame in the second half, with Hume joining Parkin in tormenting our backline once we had to push forward, with their midfielders now embarrassingly not needed as much!
All in all, just a terrible performance all round. Possibly only Somma enhanced his reputation, good movement and an excellent strike for his second.
Changes afoot I'm sure for Sat, which is now a huge game. I would have been happy to write it off had we won tonight, but a point and solid reaction (as we got at Doncaster) is now needed, otherwise it'll be a difficult two week break...
