I don't know whether this is also an issue in the UK tonight, but here in the US NBCSN is playing the Sky feed and the atmosphere audio sort of comes and goes from time to time (which is really annoying).
Nope, fine here.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Been fine on Sky Sports for me. They might have dropped it when our delightful fans started singing about Adam Johnson.

I can't remeember who it was against, but when Schar had that game as CDM I thought he suited really well there. I'd like to see him there more often when everyone (Lejune) is fully fit.
Not for me Clive. The way this formation works is that Schar and previously Lejeune too could get forward occasionally so it isn't as defensive as it could otherwise be. Schar's runs are amazing but I'd rather have him back there with a Ki, Hayden and/or Longstaff in front. That said it's a nice option to have when Diame and Hayden go in summer, but the way our centre backs drop like flies we probably need him back there.

I've said this as well. Defensively he's not a great CD but he has all the attributes for a DM. I'd love to see him get a run of games there.


Or 20 minutes at least. <whistle>

That's interesting, I've noticed that too. I'm watching the sky feed on a dodgy stream, thought it was my headphones.

Yeah I was thinking it with Diame and Hayden likely going in mind. We have a dearth of options at CB at the minute, although the aforementioned Lejune is a bit of a magnet for big knocks.

Rondon offering about as much as an unfit Joselu at the minute.

Almiron giving the ball away far too easily the last couple of times, is he gassed?

Need to get Muto on for me, stretch it a bit. That being said I don't know which of the front three I'd bring off...

Just Rondon, was just standing offside.

Think he's lacking options and running down blind alleys. We're sitting deep and it's leaving him wide on his own.

I’d bring Perez off. Rondon is a good target man and miggy is unpredictable

This is going to be a very long last 20 minutes.

Yep I think you're right. Perez had a good game but the other two are still handy. Watch Almiron do what he did last week now I've said that.
