Fuck me 1-1 amavi watching as attacker runs past him but their attack was set up by shit play from Gardner. I blame him for the breakdown of our passage of possession. He is shit

Yeah, Gardner is a total passenger. I want to like him but I just don't see it in him.

Absolutely dogshit. He has nothing. Not a single aspect of his game is good.

Yeah you can't excuse Gardner's error there, just far too casual and that's how silly goals are conceded. Not sure why RDM is playing 442 again tbh because it's leaving our full-backs a little exposed at times. Mccormack is a little but of a worry aswell because he's hardly had a sniff.

You can see this squad's confidence is totally low because as soon as Luton scored the heads dropped!!..hope RDM sorts them out now and they come out and dominate like they did for the first half hour.

It makes me laugh when people say the he has 'potential' - surely by now he should be the virtual finished article. ?
I have not seen too much of him live but is he all that some make out ? I ain't so sure

Need something more in the middle of the park. Although I'm like Tish so far he's young and 1 man.

We sat off after scoring and let Luton work their way back into the game. We (should) have another gear or 2 in the 2nd half, Grealish needs to get on the ball more and Richards needs to be fined a weeks wages for those throw ins.

Decent opening 20-30mins and then stopped playing. I'm afraid Gardner has to be replaced at half time, we can't afford to carry a player waiting for something approaching form from him. Here's hoping for a better and more comprehensive 2nd half

This is saying a lot given the plethora of lamentable performances over recent years but I don't think I've seen a performance as poor as Gardner's for a long time.

How did he keep in the Forest side?

Yeah heads are gone. Such a weak mentality. We need more signings with vocal leaders. Get in a new CM, RB and striker asap. We need way more fight

We are so fragile still, Gardner for me is not good enough, Grealish needs to move a bit and quicker. Ayew needs to keep a lid on it, a ticking bomb when things dont go his way, he gets on the ball but needs to bring others into it he can't do it all, and I think McCormack is trying too hard, keep the ball moving and forward less of this passing backwards all the time.

I think the only bright side so far for me is that Green looks decent. He looks even better than Grealish if you ask me.

It may only be the first round of the lowest cup we need a win to help heal the wounds from last year and to get this season up and running. This match is more important than just getting through.

Lol that's priceless.  If it's any consolation I've been on the right thread and still been talking to myself!
First half thoughts:
We're still too light in midfield and they are finding loads of space in front and down the side of our back 4. I have to say Richards is doing well and apart from a couple of shaky moments looks like he wants it. Green and tish look a bit light, Gardner is Westwood but slower. Ayew OK but needs to link better with Jack and Mac.  Jack drifted out of the game as the half wore on but again it needs a midfield behind and around him to give him service. We've been out muscled too often but we have also looked very slick at times, some of the passing and movement had been great but not consistently. We allowed them to get back into the match with poor play from Gardner and amavi. Bunny has been OK flapped at one cross but got free kick anyway. Mac needs to get more involved but remember we have also hit the woodwork twice and after 22 mins posession was 71% 29% to Villa.
I'm expecting us to up the tempo and tighten up second half and get the second goal to make my 2-1 prediction true!

I really don't understand why we bring on Gestede. Firstly he is shit. Secondly we are actively trying to get rid of him. Thirdly he is shit. And wouldn't Murphy also benefit from 45 minutes?

I despair. They can't pass. Can't tackle. Can't dribble. Can't shoot. Honestly think I'm turning this off.

I think what has shocked me most in our first 2 games is the massive acreage of space that teams have enjoyed against us. We are ripe for the taking every time the opposition attack. We look slow, disorganised, out of position and panic stricken every single time anyone runs at us, into space in our half or plays a forward pass against us.
It's baffling, worrying and quite frankly embarrassing.

Pretty much. And this is why I think it's weird RDM doesn't stick to one tactic. Switching from 4231 to 442 when we can't get the first one right is just absurd. We got to start with the basics, and they include being comfortable with a single tactic.
