Tough team Sheffield City.

Even if we hold out, fucking atrocious game management this. @badaids Mina was a commercial transfer at Barcelona, he wasn't signed based on his football ability.

Iwobi's confidence seems much better today.  Or perhaps he's just been given a really direct brief of what to do. Well done The Duke.

Richarlison!? It looked like he completely missed the ball from 6 yards out?!

Some brilliant football being played and Digne is ruling the left channel. James is growing and growing. It feels like something incredible is about to come from him.

James just attracts attention but he is finding a free man instantly. Such a smart player

Worries me how we have the tendency to leak a silly goal, concede one and it's squeaky bum time. We do look really good going forward though, hopefully we can add one or two more and really wrap this up well. 

Iwobi MOTM so far, Digne fantastic from the left too - the only question marks for me from that half are Mina and Pickford.

James could find a free man with 60 players on the pitch. Ridiculous football brain. He must see things in slow motion 

Iwobi deserves so much credit, he has played as good as we've seen him play bad. Well done lad.  Could it be we've found a wing back?

Can’t really comment on Pickford, he’s had nothing to do and had no chance with the goal. 
 

this is the Iwobi I was so excited to sign, he’s been excellent

What's Pickford done?

Mina had one stray pass that we got lucky didn't hurt us but Keane is at fault for the goal, yet again being a yard out of position.

PIckford, the two times he's had the ball passed back to him, first he showboated instead of getting rid and the second that terrible misplaced kick. Just doesn't inspire confidence.

Disagree, he comes out and then retreats, meaning that his body weight is going in the wrong direction to make a save - he was caught in two minds and paid the price for it. 

Mina was at fault, don't get me wrong but Jordan was poor. Didn't close the angle and didn't really make it difficult for the lad to score.

I'm unsure what the first one was, nothing had made me raise an eyebrow.

The clearance isn't great but it's perfectly acceptable. Whoever handballed it was the one at fault.

I get what you mean but it should never have got there. Really wound me up that Mina tried to pull the guy back as he shoots. It’s that utter stupidity is why I never want him in the team, he is a walking liability

Mina seems to be a stride behind everything. More reactive defending than proactive. 

I think its harsh to pin that on Mina and then not on Allan and Keane who don't react to the danger before the ball gets anywhere near Mina. Don't get me wrong, Mina turns like a cruise liner but the others before him should share the brunt too.

Personally I would have done the same to an extent. Do enough to put the guy off but not enough to give away a pen or get sent off.

Richarlison has been so good in this game at making challenges and breaking up play. Its massively underrated (or at least was before his ban). I dont think many attacking players realise how little things like that make a big difference to how the defenders do their job.

If the Fulham guy missed it’s a pen and a card. If he was leaning in I’d agree, but he wasn’t.

I've said for ages that even when he plays shite he's worth his place for competitive nature alone.  He wins fouls, he stops play, he is a pain in the arse.

I think Pickford is probably right to have a go at Godfrey there. He didn't even attempt to go out and press the ball. 

I think a goalkeeper who throws one into his own net most weeks and has teammates showing courtesy and support for him should shut his mouth.  He fucking spilled a speculative effort from 30 yards 

If Godfrey pressed and was beaten then he would get slated.

No thats not how it works. If you make mistakes you don't hide and go into your shell. 

Godfrey has to press, it doesnt mean he has to dive in, he just has to stop the shot. Basic defending.
