That was a bad first half

A lot better than Sunday, very open in front of the back four though and needlessly so given Schneiderlin should be sitting there hope it doesnít bite us on the arse.

They are walking into our area with ease, and we have 2 DM's...

Thought the whole defence did well .No goals and a win what more do we want ?

I don't want a Championship side dominating us for the first 45 minutes, and making us look terrible, while we should have been down by 1 or 2.

I don't think that's much to ask for.

Apart from a half decent ten minutes at the start they were nothing like dominating us. And apart from hit the woodwork with a couple of long range efforts they didn't look like scoring 1 never mind 2.


Dominated for the first 45. We had spells of maybe 2-3 minutes where we looked to get control back, but that was it.

second was much more controlled.

As well as the two woodwork hits I can think of at least two opportunities where they had some arsenal esque passing in our area only to not get a shot away. One time Martina or Holgate pushed a player over(no call).

Second half aside, they continuously jogged into our final 3rd and even our own area with ease, while we couldn't hold possession for more than 2-3 minutes and ended up hoofing it most of the first half.

Don't like a team like that swarming our area, even if they're not producing anything.

And again, I'm just talking about the first half. Second was much better from us.

What does it matter if they hit the wood work, it still doesn't count? Come on, "dominated for 45 minutes" massive exaggeration.

I saw us having difficulty getting the ball forward, and I saw us having difficulty stopping them from walking into our area with ease for a good 90% of that first 45 minutes.

For the first 45; Call it what you want but We were the second best team out there and didn't look good, and didn't deserve to be up by 1.

Other than the first ten minutes where we didn't get started I don't see where you're coming from. If anything it was fairly open for large spells in the first half, a bit like "you have it for a few minutes, then we'll have it for a few". But to say we were dominated by a Championship side for 45 minutes is utter bollocks and a massive exaggeration. Some people are still in doomsday mode and desperate to moan about anything, in the end it turned into a pretty comfortable win where as a few weeks ago we'd probably have let them get 2 or 3.

Just enjoy the win rather than try and pick fault with something that wasn't even happening.

Someone put the question out there of "what more do we want?" So I answered. Then you jumped all over... Not really having a moan. We were 2nd best in the first half and, as I've said many times already, much better in the second.

Go have a pint.  :cheers:

Igloo TV. Frost generally fucks up reception during Aurora Borealis.

Only messing @bluenuck. I missed the game due to christmas bollocks. Was it that bad? Three points & another blank sheet ain't nothing to scoff at like.

First half we were 2nd best. We even struggled at times to get the ball forward or even slow them down. Second half we were a much better side and controlled the game.

Hope I don't get lynched for telling the truth.
