Goldson summed up our half when the ball came to him, plenty of time to pick a pass and he just hoofed it up the park straight to their man.In Europe you need to keep the ball and we did not do that for 35 minutes.
Barker struggles because of his slight nature and composure I think, but he can turn a man.
I’d have Aribo on for him ASAP.
I really hope not, Arfield on this seasons form is the worst of a bad bunch for that position. Barker hasn't been at the races though so does deserve to come off. Maybe Ojo if he can show the work rate.Referee, Tav and Barker my main culprits from a poor first half.
I’d have Arfield on for Barker
We've had 3 decent chances and we've been somewhat toothless all over the pitch, if we improve we can definitely win.It was a dire 45 minutes but remarkably we’re still in the game. We need to see a big improvement if we’re to get anything from this match. The optimist in me says we will win this match.
Thanks. But any validation that I'm actually right is worse than anyone telling me to shut up.Brilliant post.
I'm not unhappy so far but theSome forget where we have been and this is Porto ffs. Too many panty wetters.
Let’s go 2nd half!
Oh and only 1 goal across 11 europa 1st half games.
Needs to be honest with himself and us and cut out the ego shite and step away from free kicks and pens. That's my biggest problem with him now, he needs to concentrate on basics and get back to being steady.Tav can't win - defensively he has been sound this first half, but as an attacker he has been poor, therefore he has been shit. Yet he gets called shit for being poor defensively, whilst still making chances and creating assists.
Make your minds up.
Don’t doubt we can win this. Got to get in and about them. Mon the TedsThat was a very good first half from us. If some of us underestimated Porto, we got a quick reminder how good a side they are. Howeever, we weathered the the storm, and more than held our own at times.
This tie is still up for grabs! C'mon the Rangers!!!
