    Tough one.
    definitely the former 2 nil seems to be our curse of a scoreline how many times have we surrendered a two nil lead now!!!

    Great response after the red card!

    It will be very difficult to watch. I hope they have all worked on solid, no bull****, kick it up field defending in training this week!

    COYR!

    Apart from the last game we played?

    So how do we line up for the 2nd? Back 4 or withdraw Armstrong for Cedric, or something else?

    I'd keep the back shape and so do exactly that. Vestergaard and Bednarek both look much more comfortable in a back 3.

    Well that was a wild ride.

    Thought we were pretty decent in the main. The defence is still an accident waiting to happen, but it is what it is.

    Valery was actually having one of his best games - he really unsettled a damned good left back in Chilwell. But he seems to play in a daze, completely disconnected from the flow of the game, only ever reacting to what's going on when the ball comes near him and he remembers that he's actually playing.

    God knows how we're going to try and play this in the second half. Maybe thank Long for his freakishly rare contribution, replacing him with Cedric and try and break with Reds and Armstrong?

    No way, Armstrong has been great. Valery was basically playing as a winger anyway, does very little in defence, so just move the midfield back a bit and play dull punt-ball to long for 20 mins before changing.

    Could move Prowesy to right wing back and Armstrong back into CM alongside Romeu.

    If we hold out put Long on the TSW masthead. Because if we lose, the way it's going we could end up second from bottom.

    my stream is 2 mins behind but I have SSN on too and Charlie Nicholas shouted the second time I feared the worst!!!
    then it shows us as 2-0 up and literally thinking what the fudge.

    i'd keep it as it is tbh- change stephens to right back and lets play a 4221

    although jannik and bendarek have shone in a back3- if we stay same formation then cedric for armstrong i say.

    Leicester are 7/1. Just putting that out there before dinlo claims he put 500 on them at 25/1.

    We've played well, but Valery has dumped us in it with his impetuousness. A backs against the wall performance will be required in the second half, but the two goal cushion means that Leicester need to score three without response to deny us a point at least. But Long having scored his first goal in living memory, his confidence will be sky high and he will score a hat trick.

    Thought we were excellent in that first half. Going to be a tough second. Hope we can hold on.

    I'd swap armstrong for Cedric, we look more solid with 3 CBs, and we will be under the cosh for the 2nd half. Use Long and Redmond on the break.

    I would keep Long on, take Armstrong off for Cedric or just go with a back 4.

    He has a very casual demeanour about him.

    Looks like JWP is right wing back. Armstrong deeper.

    Not sure about JWP in at right back. We are light in the middle now, even with Redmond and Armstrong tucking in.

    The fun part of these experiences is always seeing just how we'll **** it up. I am strapped in.

    This is our speciality. We’ll hang on until we really start to believe and the ship 2 in stoppage time...

    Bit of a harsh booking for Stephens there. Fractionally late and a definite foul, but worthy of a yellow?
