Re: Chris Wood should get a trophy for this.

Not really that surprised. Gray was offside all of the time too - both players try to make runs in behind. Our build up play is often either quite laboured and delayed or it’s rushed. Not saying that Wood isn’t guilty of being caught too often, but like many others have stated he also falls victim t...

Feel that we haven’t utilised Crouch effectively at all - whenever he is on the field we resort to lumping aimless balls in his direction hoping that there will be a positive outcome. Predictable and boring.

Same issues with VAR, takes ages to make a call. There’s no way a player should be lined up about to take a penalty (a couple of minutes after the decision) only to be told VAR has intervened and changed the decision.

Looks like it could be the right call BUT shouldn’t take as long as that.

His offsides are a frustration and he is clearly lacking confidence but sometimes (not always) his offsides are caused by the delay in actually passing it. Quite often our midfielders don’t spot a forward pass until they are literally telegraphing what they are about to do.
