    Everything said spot on i would say ,apart from management and doesnt know his best team ,I feel its clearly the size of our squad and keeping them match fit and motivated is as important as 3 points tbh , if u look at mo ,he came on and scored , frimpong came on and rattled them so the players that are being asked to step in are ready to and can effect the game ,thats the key to winning games that are touch and go .

    Him I’d rather have any * at LB that Greg Taylor, he offers absolutely nothing defensively, runs down the flank his cross doesn’t get past the first defender or he cuts inside onto his right which he can’t use and plays a backward pass, feel sorry the guy no his fault just not good enough

    I’d play Griffiths at LB before Taylor even Bain if he’s fit

    Some of our supporters have been on radio tonight saying that we won’t beat Sarajevo next week. Surely these opinions aren’t shared by the majority of fans? I’m not denying it will be a stiffer test than Riga was, but think we’ll still emerge victorious.

    Thoughts?

    Problem with that is Lenny seems to take an age to change things or make a sub!!
    Christ, we have 5 subs available and he regularly doesn’t use them all.

    Know what you’re saying though mate, if Lennon came out after that game last night and a few other performances and said something after it like “ we were no where near our best tonight in fact we were really poor, it’s job done but we really must improve a helluva lot “, a would be fairly happy with that but a performance v a team who were on par with Lincoln red imps to get out of jail with a last minute goal, and to say after it “ we were excellent “, is absolutely ridiculous, if he thinks that was excellent it’s very worrying but he probably doesn’t and knows it was poor so it’s unfair on the fans to bullshit them like that, were paying premier sports, virtual season ticket s to back the team the least he can do is be honest with us

    I think good starting 11 and if I play anywhere near the standard we are capable of, think we should be too good for them, a mind last time we lost an early goal v them But came back and ended up winning convincingly 3-1 going on 5-1 , won’t be easy, fact it’s away but we are a better team than them depending whether we turn up or not

    only positive for me at present is we know the majority of that team can perform to a much better level they’ve proved it and as stinking as we have been And ferencvaros game aside we win our game in hand and we are two points clear at the top of the league , a keep thinking there will be a turning point when we start clicking again, hopefully before Huns game

    Think a lot of over-reacting in this thread. We didn't play great but they had two banks of 5 from the off and had some ridiculous luck with our chances.

    It wasn't a great performance but the job is done, if we have another successful group stage it will be long forgotten.

    Remember that mob beat Copenhagen there last season as well, they were no mugs.

    no tempo to our game this season, it seems when teams park the bus that stops us from playing with any tempo

    and because its banks of 5 and no tempo we cant get the wide men behind their defence which is why forrest and taylor arent getting beyond them and getting crosses in

    teams are setting up this way against us because it works to an extent it gives inferior teams and players half a chance

    if we had 2 or 3 players in the attacking third that could do some magic we get results and mess up these teams game plans and make them come out of their shells

    we do have a few players with that magic but they dont seem to be on form but weve got to pass the ball quicker and play with a higher tempo to hurt teams

    were playing into other teams hands this season
