This is rubbish football again, unfortunately. Our attack has evaporated as the season progressed. A whole half there with just 1 shot in anger, Romero's header. Just awful stuff playing nothing ball for such long periods.

Set piece defending gets the attention. But it's the lack of a purposeful attack that's fucking the whole team up. And the whole team, not just the forwards, share responsibility for that.

Surprise surprise another poor first half. The midfield pairing is not working.
It does go to show though that Ange isn't happy with it and we need reinforcements.

I think other than Bentancur, our midfielders need time and space when asked to be progressive.

We need some real intelligent players there.

Johnson has to have a tighter touch there on the dribble. He’s had very few opportunities to beat Cucurella and he should be taking every single opportunity to go past him 1v1 because he’s a terrible defender in those situations
He’s making him look like prime Cafu 😂

Anonymous? He living of scraps, if that. The service had been diabolical. Only reason Johnson looking decent is Porro keeps releasing him quickly and when he in space.
Come on, don’t make excuses for him. He is club captain, supposed to be world class and playing in a London derby. Go make something happen.

Kulusevski has to do more in that position. Lo Celso would demand the ball.

Son is up against a rookie and ... no runs in behind, no dragging him out position - nothing.
Yeah feel Son was hiding that half, so so poor.

They've got an entire team, including subs, out injured and they comfortably out played us in that first half.

The only good thing that's happened this half is the rhubarb cider I've discovered this pub sells. It's fookin lush...

Why? Interested
Elite finisher but needs space in behind to utilise his pace. Doesn't work as a CF as it negates his strengths in a possession heavy system that requires wide players to hug the touchline and create.

Don't get me wrong I love the man but if we want to back Ange we have to get him players who suit his system.

Poor first half but not out of it. Confidence really low.

Hopefully see Gio on for Kulu but think he’ll drag Bissouma or Sarr instead.
