You are right of course, but in the play offs we need to be able to score, and I just can't see it.
We played really well first half, however, we can't not have a shot or get more into the box, or play just play intricate stuff around the opposition box, that needs sorting in my opinion.👍
BTW what's the weather like up there, it's still tossing down here☔☔☔☔
Watford mostly sat back in the second half, making it hard for us to break them down, it won't be like that hard next week as barnsley won't sit back therefore leaving note space up front for us, we'll I hope so.
Off course, I still worry about our lack of creating chances, we certainly aren't going to blow anyone away with our scoring prowess, and that's a concern for me. We did play well today mind.👍

Yes it does matter, we need a win and momentum, yet the performance is shocking. This will not get our confidence up for the playoffs.
Shocking? Really?

I think it wasn't too bad, we will be better next week.
Yes, Watford played better than us. I hope you're right but Barnsley will be tough

We wouldn’t have gone full out today, would have been more a keep the fitness up ready for the playoffs, Barnsley fans seem happy they got us, let’s put that to bed and use the 2 wins over them this season as an advantage.

I would rather have Bournemouth than Brentford in the final (if we beat Barnsley), Bournemouth are looking brittle, where as Brentford are in good form and confidence, and Toney has got 30 league goals, that is some goalscoring form

No disrespect to Barnsley as they look a good side in decent form but if you'd asked me how I wanted the playoffs to work out I'd want Barnsley with the second leg at home and then Brentford v Bournemouth in the other semi.

We can beat Barnsley over two legs by all means. The final is a shootout.

This ain't over yet.
I totally agree. Secretly that's the draw Coops and co would have wanted. By no means a golden opportunity but fckn hell...don't waste this chance. Gonna be real tight tie, but get it right and out of the 3 we could have had, this is the tie we all wanted.

If we do manage to get into the final I'm not bothered as they are both better than us and it will be a one off game where anyone can win on the day.

What I do want though is for brentford and bmuff to kick the fvck out of each other.

Aye Barnsley is the tie we wanted, but don't forget, we would have been the team of choice for all three other clubs.

Onwards and upwards 🙌


You'd rather me with you than against you

Barnsley are transformed compared to when we played them last. Their manager has done an amazing job. Two tough games ahead.

And a red card for Toney in the second leg just in case they get through to the final

Plenty of red cards on both sides too. If it’s not us at Wembley I’ll be hoping Barnsley would beat either of them.
