Questions from the video:
1. When Ngbakoto failed to defend and failed to position himself to aid attacking play, why was Furlong taken off instead for Washington? (LoftForWords actually has Furlong as our MotM even though only on for 45 mins!) Yeni had a pretty poor game and I agree that Furlong was unlucky to get hooked. I suspect we decided to adopt a more attacking line-up to drag ourselves back into the game.
2. What has happened to our effective 'hunting in pairs' to get back the ball? I thought the same thing during the game. We seemed to have completely abandoned it!
3. Why did Luongo not react and at least try to block the first goal scorer, and the same applies (more) to Lynch for the second goal? I chalked the first goal to 'just one of those things' - when the ball just drops to the wrong bloke in the wrong place. In retrospect, we did leave ourselves open to a player in the centre on the edge of the box. It wasn't the only time it happened in the game tbh. I think Lynch tried to play offside for the second goal. It was quite scary how easily we were cut apart.
4. Why do we seem to play better with Hall as CM? Freeman worked hard in that role but that meant he was absent further upfield... Hall distribution is better than Lynch or Nedum's. It gives us something to work from. Freeman looks much more effective as an attacking force. Without Hall it was a constant pattern of long balls to Smith. Our midfield was bypassed far too often.
