    There is never a right answer when things aren't going well. Last season sticking to our game plan and largely same selections was seen as a weakness. This season in a bad spell, keep experimenting, changing selections and tactics is seen as a weakness. We can't have it both ways.

    My personal opinion is that going back to Duffy / March / Murray and in Gross has been a mistake, however that can only be said in hindsight. We carried as little threat as I can remember this season on Saturday, and it wasn't entirely surprising the team looked a bit early 2019...

    The erratic team selection is tough to take.

    Firstly because this isnt Potters squad to select from.
    Secondly, as we're saying, he's damned if he does or doesn't.

    Nobody was hammering him in October.


    As for the squad looking somewhat regressive, with Duffy, Groß, Murray and March.
    3 of those players saved a point at West Ham and one saved us from the wooden horse battering that is Deaney.

      The really laughable thing is that Hughton got moaned and moaned and moaned at for never changing the team.

      Don't think anybody questions that Webster is a better ball player. But Duffy is a better defender imho.

      You want to judge Duffy after Watford fair enough. Webster was awful defensively for weeks.
      I think Duffy has been pretty poor every time he's played this season. Not just against Watford

      I think that Duffy is getting unfair criticism a I didnt think that he did badly on Saturday yes he could have rushed Doucoure and stopped him and the ball outside of the area and thus taken a yellow for the team but other than that he defended well and a lot better than Webster has. As regards this not being GP squad he has had 2 transfer windows to bring in the players that he thought that he needed if he considered those present not adequate and capable of doing the job, so yes it is partly his squad, not completely but sufficient for him to be held responsible.

      Arguing for one or other of Duffy or Webster is pointless.
      The truth is Both have been inconsistent this season.
      I’m sure Potter doesn’t want to keep switching around the defence but I’d imagine he’s hoping one of them will find form. This Hasn’t happened yet.

      Quite right. I'm not hammering Potter as there is text evidence I sent 'pretty excited by that lineup' at 16.35 on Saturday. What transpired though looked Hughton-2019. So I can only comment in hindsight. It didn't quite work or click. Trying to capture the last 20 mins at West Ham, and deal with Deaney didn't transfer into that same bite and penetration. As another thread has said, March coming on with limited time to influence a game looks the business. When he starts, he looks like someone terrified to be the one to make a mistake. Focus around Murray appears to lead to similar one dimensional play. It's not Murray's fault, it just seems to happen to this squad when he plays.

      He'll have to change it again away to Sheff Utd I would think.

      The irony of fans demanding consistency while regularly flip flopping their opinions hasn't been lost on me for a little while.

      mmm not convinced, Duffy was all over the place first half. When he has a bad moment it effects his game and he loses his head, I think anyway.

      Id like to see 3 at the back a bit more, it would be another case of tinkering though which Im not sure we need at the moment.

      I think there is a strong case for not changing the back 5 and then tinker as much as you like in midfield and forward areas.

      You’ve really got yourself in a knot about the word erratic, haven’t you? It wasn’t meant as a tool “to beat GPott” with.
      Also, it’s DEENEY..
      What?
