    The way I see it is the longer it stays 0-0, the more chance we have of nicking the game with a set piece.

    Cagey. Tense. Nervy. Both teams.

    We seem to be going for the ‘soak it up, then hit them on the break’ style game. But I think it’s just two teams desperately not wanting to concede. Whoever gets brave first will win this.

    I have no problem with patient play, but we are falling into that play it safe pattern. The trouble is, passing all the way back to Fraser (when there are better options) isn’t working, as he lumps it up field and it gets mopped up by their central defenders.

    So, in essence a thoroughly average game, but one that could become interesting if somebody just takes a risk.

    Armstrong, as ever, our most likely. I’m just wondering where the dynamic version of Diallo has got to?

    What has happened to our high tempo pressing game?, we need to get that going to create a few chances from turnovers of possssion in their half.

    Half time is where the managers come in to it.
    I would like to see Ralph take the initiative and put Che on.
    Rodgers has a wealth of talent on his bench to make tactical changes.
    Che is the type of player that could win a free kick just outside the box and JWP can do his stuff.

    This has been... tense.

    We are actually doing better than I expected, but we are scrappy and don’t look like creating anything.

    Glad that we have options on the bench for a change. This is Theo’s competition and I am hoping he gets a decent chunk of time to make an impact.

    I think that Che deserves a chance.

    If Ralph brought on Theo and Che at half time, I’d be amazed, but I wouldn’t be disappointed.

    Weird how people see matches, cause I've actually enjoyed it so far. We haven't looked to be out-played at all. Been quite some times since I've had butterflies watching a match too. We're still very much in this and Armstrong looks dangerous.

    Heard OWTS a couple of times too. Fair play to them.
