    Quite glad for half time, something is definitely not working

    Crap. Looking very light weight in CM. Could do with Lemina on the bench.

    Okay our biggest problem is our flanks, JWP not helping Valery out, but fortunately now we're a man up. Secondly Danso isn't a LB, he is playing pretty poorly on that side. But it's his first game for us and i'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt.
    JWP not adding anything to our midfield, i'd rather have Armstrong on for him.
    Our pattern of play is far too slow, Ings and Adams are making constant spinning in behind runs but we're too slow to play the pass. Ings is doing okay, he's chasing down lost causes etc, Adams simply hasn't been involved and should be subbed.
    This sort of game suits Obafemi - we need to be breaking quicker and getting in behind when possible, not slowing down the pace constantly.

    Probably one of our worst collective performances, we don't look interested that's my issue with it today. Like it's a summer stroll in the park not a local south coast derby.

    Brighton doing a decent job pressing. We have to have wide men playing on the lines to open up space and wear them down.

    At the moment we are slow, ponderous and predictable. Think JWP should make way.

    Really is a shambles this afternoon. I agree with earlier comments, too many of our players are in their wrong positions and the 4-2-2-2 just isn't working. Nobody coming out of this with much credit not even Ralph. Whole team needs a damn good bollocking at HT

    Valery = RB, Danso = LB, JWP is on the right side of the AM two (Reds on left).

    JWP/Romeu/Hojberg couldnt create a fart.

    Boufal on for JWP and Djnepo on for Ings

    Defence looks terrible. Danso has been fine but isn't a left back in a million years - surely Cedric would be better suited.

    The major concern is how atrocious we've been on the ball. Once Lemina is sold, these are all our midfield options. Yikes.

    No remotely competent linesman should've needed VAR to intervene on the Brighton goal. Burn has been deliberately blocking Gunn on every single corner.

    Valery right back, Danso left back. We are allegedly playing a back 4, so no wing backs.

    I would get Jwp off for Djenepo and Adams for Boufal.

    worth remembering: it's really hot there. that a) part explains the slight lethargy of saints and b) shd mean that 10-man brighton really tire second half. we do need boufal or dejenepo on. Ings has had a decent half. Need him to show leadership this season.

    Back to 3 4 2 1 would be better. Get JWP off for Cedric. Cedric to LWB. Danso into the 3. Hoj and Romeu holding, Ings and Reds behind Adams. 60 mins get Ings or Adams off for Djenepo or Boufal.

    When the team was announced I thought that if Pellegrino had picked that team I would be unhappy, convinced it was going to lead to defeat. But after so much good that Hasenhuttl has done I am more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately it seems like the concerns were justified.

    Do you think he has been working on this formation but wanted to save it for this 'more winnable' game? And now in practice it isn't working? Or is it more due to the personnel? I haven't seen enough of the first half to judge.

  23. #173

    Really no clue why we seem to want to pass the ball really slowly with no movement.
    Playing a left back who is utterly lost in that position doesn’t help.
    Also is a strategy to leave Gunn to deal with dunk on corners cos we think he’ll be done by var regardless. Otherwise it’s a bit nutty.
    At least they have 10 men and we somehow aren’t behind I suppose.

    We're too tentative because of the change of personnel and formation. As a result we have been outplayed this first half. But we are still on level pegging and have the advantage of an extra player for 45 minutes. I believe that we play better with 3 CBs and with pace out wide, something that Bertrand and Valerie bring. The new lad Danso isn't comfortable enough to press forwards yet. Perhaps he needs Djenepo ahead of him, tracking back to cover him when necessary.

    The main problem is the rubbish quality throughout the squad. The squad Adkins had immediately after promotion was better.

    However, square pegs in round holes isn't helping.

    JWP booked and will get a second yellow if he fouls again. Friend will want to even things up.

    I did wonder if like Clough was not the same without Taylor, perhaps Ralph is lost without Rohl?? Sometimes a partnership just gels and is successful

    Cedric for JWP, Djenepo (or Boufal) for Bednarek would be my subs.

    4222 isn’t working when our attacking winger JWP is slow.

    I'd try Armstrong for JWP personally.

    Hmmm 4-2-2-2. Against 10 men. Where's these lightning quick breaks when we win possession?

    Trying to find a place for JWP has been hard to understand especially since Ralph professes to want speed and creativity in his attackers.

    Redmond doesn’t trust Danso, ignores his run again...

    Redmond is really doing my head in. Never passes to Danso at all in the opposition half even when it is clearly the best option.

    Why are we keeping Danso on at LB? Poor guy is totally lost there.

    5 minutes gone in 2nd half still lethargic and with zero attacking ideas, and Brighton carrying more threat.
