The insistent passing into Pedro and him losing it everytime is so frustrating. Get it out wide. They are certainly well off the pace in that first half!
Agree..clearly not working..loads of space in the channels though for him and others to run onto if only the ball was played there

He couldn't cope with 80 minutes at Forest....
But I can’t remember Ferguson completing 90 minutes for club or country yet. We have literally no recognised strikers on the bench…

Hats off to AEK though they’re doing a number on us again.

That said, come on you super seagulls.

Hoping my seagull-themed beer might inspire us.

Does he? I’m sorry I can’t agree. He doesn’t link the play very well and rarely retains possession. He needs to improve on this for him and JP to play together, so that he can come to feet and allow JP to run in behind

He can tackle, pass, hold the ball up and find the net. Go look at his stats you'll be suprised at his completion rate before his latest average run of games.

Problem is lately he isn't played a striker, he's being made to play deep purely with his back to goal and his only assignment seems to be only try lay the ball off. Which must be frustrating for him.

It's not his fault he's constantly being played out of position.

Maybe we should pretend to leave the stadium during half time, and leave a big wooden horse in the changing room as a reward for their efforts.
And then when they wheel it out to the pitch to show it off to the fans, we leap out and catch them by surprise and score 3 goals.
Can’t we just promise them the Elgin marbles to throw the game 🤔
