Watching the game with no commentary and not missing the inane stuff that Tim and Mick come out with.
Dreary typical mid-table type of Championship game (although not as dreary as that play-off final) where nothing much happens.

We could get something out of this if somebody (where are you McCleary, Barrow, Beerens etc?) gets behind their defence at pace and pulls the ball back away from the keeper.
It's not asking for much is it?

Got it. Thanks for that information - even so, wished they could provide commentary from video. Beats watching without anything or listening to the opposition commentary.

Beerens on the left would excel in this line up.

Snowflake Royal Kinda feel Rafa should have been a bit more live to the header too.

Think Holmes was caught waiting for the ball and not anticipating the run onto him. Have to attack balls into the box. If you get caught static a and waiting you lose.


I think that’s harsh on Rafael. Can’t see what he could do there. Campbell should never have won that header. Holmes has a significant height advantage.

Diving rather than stumbling would have helped.

Holmes, Laurent, Richards, Rafa in that order of culpability for me. Certainly no clear error for Richards or Rafa, just a bit soft.

Did that a couple of times vs Swansea as well. Sure it’s something he’ll get better at

Did he mishead his chance at the end? Still don’t know how he managed to hit the keeper unless it just glanced off his head


I've said that twice
I still don't think he headed it at least not cleanly
May have been off his shoulder

Hard to get good connection and direction diving that low in a physical tangle.

I'm sorry, for all you lot bigging up the H'Town common taters, to me the main one is a little bit Attenborough. Very dull, I miss the partizan bollocks of Mick and Tim...

Defender wasn't strong enough, great finish from Joao, missed the big man!

The other guy is gradually making up for the main guy's objective stuff

I suspect he would be much worse if Huddersfield were behind

Let's hope we find out!
