Lots of sideways passing. Bit of nice attacking play before inevitably cocking up the final ball.

They score from one superb bit of play, and their only shot on target.

I'm no optimist, infact I'd say I'm far from it, but you take pessimism to a whole new level, without much substance!

I'm very usually doom and gloom, but last season I appreciated we were going to be up there and I was a bit more upbeat! You should acknowledge the same! Your squad is fantastic, you're a very hard side to break down, and the goals will naturally flow sooner rather than later - and not to mention, you have the best away record in the league so far.

0-2 Derby.

Another home defeat. Too much quality and movement for us if we make it an open game. Too few chances created by us if we keep it tight until the inevitable breakthrough.

Not to fussed as for me the season starts again next week at Ashton Gate. A good week of training in Portugal (de-camping there due to Tonga & Japan rugger boys using our training "facility") and we should have one or two key players back by then.

2:0 Derby win for me.

Again, Derby lacking a real cutting edge up front. It's a complete role reversal of last season, because they look fine at the back.

Keogh has been very good as notably.

0-1 Bradley Johnson.

MK Dons generally looking quite good, tidy passing etc but it's all a bit pointless when you have Simon Church up front. Been impressed by Jordan Spence at RB though, always thought he was more of a CB.

Really enjoyable game to watch, MK look quality to be fair.

Murphy booking for a dive there... admittedly went down lightly but there is a shove from Carson.

MK need to make these chances pay or I can see Derby punishing them late on.

We look so poor. So devoid of the type of system we are playing. Chopping and changing. Basics not being done. Can still win this but won't deserve it.

Worst performance of the season, and we win 3-1. Football is ridiculous :lol:

What was Carson doing in the 93rd minute ffs. Good job Weimann was there to clear it!

We were by far the better side and deserved to win that, Leeds all over again.

Fed up of playing well and getting 0 points.

The fat Scouse needs to walk or he'll take us down.

No good having the kind of players we have and not letting them do what they're good at. It's obvious we have the best squad in the division, we need to use it. Terrible performance and I hate being so negative, especially when we got a win, but Clement really needs to sort this lack of cohesion out.
Anyway, a wins a win when all said and done, need to register one at home now before the IB, for some positive belief.

That's the one thing that's struck me in the recent defeats (Birmingham, Boro, Burnley, Leeds and yourselves). All of which have had proven match winners on the pitch who've eventually done the business for them but all have looked far from fluid in their passages of play, movement and understanding of what teammates are doing. All five of you have looked like a collection of strangers at times and looked a team cobbled together to a large degree. We've improved game by game in each of those defeats and are, aside from the finishing aspect obviously, looking like we did last season: too quick and too clever for a lot of teams at this level.

Obviously, that's getting us nowhere at the moment, but it's got to change soon. It simply can't carry on.

It'll only change when you got someone to put the ball in the net. That or as a team you don't take a shot at every opportunity and be a bit more selective in your shooting.

Still think we looked lethargic and slow yesterday. Is the pitch bigger than usual? Seemed it with the way the players were acting.

Still believe that had we started with Thorne OR anyone other than Baird at DM we'd have won more comfortably. He really adds little unless we are seeing the game out.

I watched the game after knowing the result, but it still didn't help.

We're a poor side, and MK Dons were unfortunate not to come away with the points. The only time we looked like the better team was in the last 10 minutes.

Complete contrast to when we used to control games under McClaren, we're devoid of both style and identity.
