The build up play is too slow. Cm is not working one iota.

As @spursfan77 said, Toby is the only playmaker....

The game plan lacks adventure. When it is passed about, it's too slow. Needs more speed of play, 1 touch passing. Not stop, look, allow Watford to regroup, pass.

Sooo, do we all still believe no incoming was a good thing?
Come on...It's a league cup tie with both teams fielding nowhere near full strength sides, signings would've made f all difference. If this narrative is going to get dragged out every time we aren't ahead at HT then we're in for a long old season.

Say what you like about Dier, I know I do, but he can pick a pass. Really want to see Winks strap on a pair of testicles and make some progressive use of his passing range.
Not his fault he's seemingly asked to play left back when we have the ball.

It's not the fact that we're not ahead that's annoying people it's the performance and the feeling that the players aren't bothered.

Or maybe it's due to our players having no cohesion with each other and no playmaker or recognized striker on the pitch...?

What is it you love about him? Serious question
Not his respective footballing qualities. I Expect every ball to bounce off of him. He is limited but gives his all. And apparently his is pretty good at UNO. What's not to like?

maybe this whole season so far is a tactical genius and we are gonna start the next match with so many pairs of bollocks it’s gonna be like buster gonads, whacking them all off the pitch and suffocating the other team’s strengths with our swathes of ballbag!

it has to be the plan.🍄

Not bothered, really? I think that peoples preconceived notion that players and managers don't see this game as important is playing more of a part in that than the actual reality of that first half. Dele, Lucas and Lamela have worked their bollocks off up top, I think people need to view whats actually happening and not throw bitch tantrums because we aren't winning at half time.
