Frustrating. I can't see anything dangerous in this Athens side. If Albion play well they should take something. But they are poor at the moment.

Fair play to AEK, that’s the strongest European performance we’ve been up against by a long way. We’ve been pretty average after a bright start but I back RDZ to see where we can get into them as we look a cut above on the ball. I’d def take Pedro off and put Dahoud in the middle as we’re losing too many battles in there and are looking slow. Good game of actual football.

Usual overreaction of the game on a match thread I see 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣

AEK are shit in Europe, yet in the two games tear us apart. We make their forwards look world beaters. Verbruggen and Dunk have prevented a cricket score.
Mad isn't it. That no 5 a world beater. Crazy. Up the other end to me but thought fergie should have buried the early chance

six feet beneath the moon...
defended well so far (touch wood). midfield has been a complete shitshow, again. not been able to build anything and not been able to stop anything in terms of AEK attacks. been nonexistent. Joao pedro woeful so far. everything has bounced off him. that said, we have looked dangerous in the AEK half. just a bit more precision and we could get something here

They did the exact same to us in the reverse game. They match our width when they don’t have the ball and completely nullify both of our wingers, and when we play into feet they win it back every time. Just don’t play wingers and play two number 10’s in the pockets and pack out the midfield!

Possibly out worst performance of the season, other than Villa.
We cannot string more than 2 or 3 passes together. It all looks much more rushed than usual.

The advantage to spending half an hour walking around York looking for a pub showing the game is that I only saw the last 5min of that.
What a 5min that was though.

Lucky to be level. That half was tough viewing!
Not in the game after the first 5 minutes. RDZ will have a lot to say at HT, no doubt.
AEK look like a good side, but we’ve made them look better than they are

We’ve been terrible first half, lethargic, can’t keep the ball and not at the races generally. Surely RDZ needs to make changes. Nobody has been decent. Was Mitoma playing? How many times did Gross and Pedro give it away?
