Strikers!
at 23:27 19 Apr 2022

That is the other big factor this season.

3 key areas for me, striker(s), LWB and set pieces.

Improve those over the summer and we should be in for an enjoyable season.

Thompson getting some unnecessary stick but....
at 23:26 19 Apr 2022

What is it with his throws.

I think on 3 occasions he just threw it straight to a Wigan player.

I noticed th same thing on Saturday.

He has an odd throw that looks like it could be useful but he seems to have no control over where it actually goes.

More sh*thousery tonight
at 23:24 19 Apr 2022

The biggest thing is the way to get around teams playing like that, defending and wasting time is scoring set pieces.

Simple answer to why we are where we are is we don't do that!

Strikers!
at 23:22 19 Apr 2022

Tonight really showed what a difference a decent striker can do for you. Keane didn't get a sniff all game yet he scores two very good striker goals.

For me with Bonne and Norwood it felt like we were playing with 10 men. Bonne kept screaming for the ball whilst in offside positions and Norwood spends half his game chasing down defenders and the goalkeeper needlessly. If we are going to play one up top the striker has to be more clever, too many times Bonne needed to hold it up and he tried silly flicks and turns.

I dont think our main striker for next season is at the club, Jackson will be a great asset when we want to stretch teams but for me the other 3 add very little.

Another striker (maybe 2, a youngster on loan or something) and a LWB and I think we have decent squad, another CM would be a bonus though but Bakinson is growing on me.

A very useful game
at 15:11 16 Apr 2022

How can we continue to blame managers, Cook is a proven manager at this level and McKenna has received high praise from all over the place with hoe he has us playing.

There are several players in this squad that aren't good enough to be fighting for promotion. Norwood, Bakinson, Thompson, Piggot.

The key issue for me is McKenna is sort of forced to play this formation based on the players he has available. He can't switch to a 442 because he doesn't have 2 wingers good enough. He also has a solid defense playing with 3 at cb so why would he change that. Be interesting to see how it sets up preseason

Sam Parkin hit nail on the head
at 15:07 16 Apr 2022

We have learnt nothing new today about Ipswich.

Solid defensively, but need more fire power going forwards.

Will be interesting to see how McKenna views it over the summer.

Does he go down the route of signing wingers and go back to 4 at the back or does he stick with the wingbacks and bring in a more attaching LWB.

For me we need a set piece taker and a playmaker to sit next to Morsy, not completely sold on Evans or Bakinson so be interesting to see who we sign in the summer.

One other side issue I see is do we think Celina, Chaplin and Aluko are good enough no.10s. For me as good players as they are they all drop too deep and don't support the striker.

How about a change of tactics?
at 15:03 16 Apr 2022

We ended up with 2 up top.

We looked worse IMO.

The formation we play suits us best and very much worked first half.

For me that game came down to Rotherham wanting it more

Dead rubber game
at 14:48 16 Apr 2022

McKenna needs to find a way of motivating this lot, could really see in that 2nd half Rotherham just wanted it more.

More intensity more appeals to the ref.

We looked like we were on our holidays.

Yellow cards really killed us in that game
at 14:41 16 Apr 2022

Took away any press we could put in, we need to stop being so petulant. But also need to appeal for things and get opposition players booked in the same way Rotherham did to us.

Another issue was Morsy not having his best game, really shows how important he is to the team. If he has an off game we lose control completely.

Wigan and Charlton at home could potentially be big attendances, would be good to stay behind the team and really start building for next season.

Edmundson out is obviously not a good thing
at 14:18 11 Mar 2022

But I do just wonder, providing Burgess is match fit and sharp, having an actual left footer in the left CB role could be a good thing.

I dont recall what Burgesses long passing is, but if he can quickly get the ball sprayed out to Burns when counter attacking which is far easier as a left footer on the left side

I would put Aluko into the Centre, think he is the closest to a Morsy like player in terms of being comfortable on the ball and being able to read the game

3 points from 4 games….

Normally the odd draw where you are just unfortunate or the opposition keeper has a great game is not an issue.

But because of the start we had it is obviously very disappointing. But we need to be annoyed at our start not where we are now things are heading in the right direction

Controlling games
at 15:01 27 Feb 2022

I've been wanting us to control games for so long so have to say I am delighted with where we are now.

Clearly we have issues in the final third but our ability to control a game even against some of the better teams in the league has to be applauded.

We are miles away from the end to end uncontrolled style of Paul Cook and I personally am very happy with that.

Unfortunately we may have to wait until next season but I strongly believe McKenna will fix the scoring issue. I only hope he also looks at the set piece issues we have to do more with the amount we get.

Sam Morsy was immense yesterday
at 08:45 13 Feb 2022

But can someone tell him to have a shot when he gets to the edge of the box.

We have seen him strike a few and he does have a decent drive on him his shots, fancy him to score in the coming weeks.
