****Official Lapps Match Thread v Bristol City (L/h) *****

Recommended Posts

Been coming, that. Pretty poor performance so far. Bristol pressing very high: will be interesting to see if they can keep that up.

This is the most annoyed I've been all season. I can't believe how much space we're giving them and how lackadaisical we've been with our passing. We're playing like we have hangovers or something. It's a good job Bristol are so poor because most sides would have put 3 past us in that spell

Appalling from Norwich since Pukki’s second.

They can see Byram is a big weakness at left-back.

Very frustrating game. Felt we actually dealt with the Bristol threat quite well but the midfield were passengers both in attack and in shielding the back 4. Nunez has gone very off the boil after his hot start.

Enjoying being back in the Barclay tonight, enjoyable game but utterly littered with mistakes. We look world class going forwards at times but Sunday league at the back, Bristol goal was more than coming.

Note for Cantwell though, he's been everywhere in that half.

Our full backs play so narrow when defending because of the lack of a DM.

Delighted to be ahead after what was actually a very poor performance for most of the half. The goals were a result of our quality but even before they scored we had no grip on that gsme. The midfield is non existent defensively (Kenny?) and neither Todd or Sarge is giving shy protection to their full back. Todd roaming is a particular problem when we don’t have the ball as their man is left in acres down the right.

ramsey and Sarge may as well not be on the pitch.

Too easy as per usual, so we start playing silly buqqers. Smith needs to give them a kick up the aris at half time.

Clearly a lot of upset royalists in the City XI. Marcelino would plainly rather be in the queue...

My mum can see that. Imo you can’t get away with playing guys out of position for too long, they get found out…sides will focus on Byram - it’s not his fault though.

That was woeful and I am usually the positive sort. On the plus side we are winning but so slow to react to the tweaks they made. Sargent, Ramsey and Cantwell look an odd 3 behind Pukki.

Got to bring Sara on at half time and stiffen up midfield.

Honestly, Sargent on the wing just does not work. Now that I have said that he's gonna score mind

He looks such a class act. Definitely a PL player in there.

These last 20 minutes have been sloppy and even in the first 5 minutes we gave away stupid passes. Underwhelming... and when we were 2 goals up you could hardly say it was deserved except for Teemu's customary brilliance.

Bristol look very decent and must be fancying their chances. Unless we buck up our ideas. Cantwell ineffectual as is Ramsey. Sarge struggling to even get into the game. Nunez brighter.

Big HT regroup needed. Smith needs to earn his corn here.

Looks like he's playing with an injury or something, but look at the space we're giving them infront of him! You can't blame him for being exposed when they have half the pitch to run at him unchallenged

We need a change of formation and personel at half time because tactically we're getting worked over here. This lead won't last long if we carry on like this

It’s not Byram it’s Todd roaming around and constantly out of position.

I find this such a strange benchmark. We're not playing in the Premier League so why judge the team by how they'd do in a league their not in?

Because we obviously aspire to be there, again. We wouldn't have been gifted two goals and our regular misplaced passes would be punished. 

I don't particularly have a problem with yo yoing  per se, but make no mistake, we'd be coming straight back down playing like that.

Too many ‘tricks and flicks’ and not enough basics like simple passes to your own player and not inviting pressure on your own dodgy defence.

Is that the same Ramsey who played teemu through for his second?

Yep swanning around waving his arms expecting byram to have 2 men against him... So much space down our left.... Brizzle pinging it either side well tbf annoying... And we  still fan ee around with it at the back too much!! 🤔
