Just one last comment.

There was a group of about 5 not far from us giving their keeper 'Johnson' abuse most of the second half

His name is Johansson. :D
Yeah, they were around me, bit OTT. He tried to give it the ‘thumbs up’ but they upped the abuse for some reason.

It wouldn't surprise me if we were the first championship team in history to draw over half their games in a season.

Not sure Piroe and Obafemi had off days as such, I think Paul Warne and his team had done their homework on the clear threat of those two and made sure they were marked well and very physically then closed them down in packs anywhere around their edge of their box so they had no space to work in. Piroe's role allowed him to go deeper to get away from his markers but this left Obafemi being marked out of the game for most of it. They knew they had to contain them or they'd get stuffed. They should have been stuffed anyway tbh. :(
I can agree that some was down to Warne but everything seemed to bounce off Obafemi and was a bit headless chicken. Piroe did have his moments, but overall I do think his decision making was below par.
Indeed, they looked frustrated and trying too hard and that's when your composure and decision making goes to s**t. Not surprised our goal came from a defender as they had more space and time.

Life is a strange thing: just when you think you've learned how to use it, it's gone.

Anyone notice their pitch was made smaller yesterday? After the white outline there was another outline in green of a bigger pitch?

Yep. About a meter in on each side from the womens Euro game
