Yeah but you're relentlessly negative about everything, so I'm gonna take that with a massive pinch of salt.
I'm not at all. I see things as they are and its not worth sugar coating it. Yes the second half was 0-0, well done and congratulations to all, we still lost 2-0 And with both formations didn't ever look like scoring.

Which is exactly why it was the starting lineup being too open that cost us, not the subs. You can't give a team who excel on the counter a 2-0 lead.

At least with the 4-4-2 diamond, we protected the space in front of our back 4, where they were killing us and had 2 strikers in the box to occupy them more. It was a sound tactical switch, but a bad initial setup.
How can you categorically say it would've been any different if we started with that formation? They dropped down about 30% in the second half with regards to tempo as they new it was won and probably still had the better chances

I dont understand how the fuck we allow teams so much space all the time, they press us when we have the ball, we're incapable of doing that, we just drop back and make it so fucking easy for teams to play out from the back, the amount of space we give them is shocking, its basic football, schoolboy stuff. Its not a new thing by the way, its been going on for well over a year, we were lucky last season cos we had goals in us, we havent anymore, its worrying.

Dreading Lyon on Thursday and the Watford game, horrible to feel like this but theres no positived at all right now
As bad as things seem I really think we're a centre forward away from having a decent team. There are flaws, but we have no out ball or pose any threat, this is in theory freeing up extra players against us. When we had lukaku he would occupy 3 or 4 defenders at a time whereas now they're almost happy to go 1 on 1, were that toothless. We need to hang in there until January, get a striker, then we'll finish strong.
