I've only half seen some of this half after a bit of a mishap I've had today (more of that later in general chat.....), but I'm just struck by how toothless we look when we get ourselves in to good positions.

We just don't look to have any penetration or pace when we get in to the final 3rd, and we're too slow at getting the final ball played nearly every time.  We just get there, and go sideways until we either lose it or play an awful cross in.

I'd stick Yak or Vaughan on, probably Vaughan actually.  His directness could open things up for us.

To be honest MGP I don't think that defence is really our problem at the moment, so as good as it will be to having him back I don't think it would have made any difference to us on a day like today.

For whatever reason we just seem lethargic in the final 3rd of the pitch.  It's all very well keeping the ball well like we did but the lack of real chances that we're carving out is worrying at the moment.

Like others have said, a good result against Burnley is a must now.
