Is it just me or do we lose all possible momentum when White and Loagan especially, seem to take a age to get the ball back in play. It’s like we are the away side!
It winds me up no end

The tempo all over has dropped. First have when we'd scored Diamond was slowing it all down and telling Logan too... Just when we needed to keep the pressure on.

We cannot keep starting the second half like we did again today. A real lack of urgency and no tempo. It just takes one thing like the Hamilton incident and we are on the backfoot and struggling to get a foothold back into the game. Unfortunately a lot of the intensity in previous games came from the management team, and I don't know how we are going to replicate this for the time being.

Give the gaffer time. He will be figuring out who can, and who can’t, command a place.

Expect plenty of tempo against the ‘pies.

I agree lancer. We take an age to do anything. We amble around and just throw it down the line for Danny rose. We never do anything early. Our movement off the ball is non-existent. These guys aren't run of the mill league 2 players they are on really good money and we need better. We seem to have become 1 dimensional just knocking long balls at rose and hoping to pick up scraps. So at the moment we are easy to play against. McDonald's work rate is excellent but he consistently turns the wrong way into a man instead of playing the way he is facing. Give a simple ball and move 2 yard into space and get it back!! Very frustrating to watch. Another thing that is doing my head in is feining injury. Players on both sides go to ground so easily squeak about it and spend ages on the floor. As grown men it's a disgrace they ought to be ashamed and the football league ought to do something because it's ruining the game as a spectacule. Sorry left the ground v frustrated yesterday.
