All this talk about our defence being poor/ weak/ too small. I don't understand. Am I missing something? We have conceded 3 goals in 6 games, the lowest in the Championship! Can someone explain why they get so much stick? 😲.

I think with the goalkeeper. It’s a mistake waiting to happen.
Plus cooper can be a bit prone.
While we dominate games it will mean the defence generally has little to deal with.
But when we face say a west Brom or Fulham who can score goals, Then we may have a problem.
They are not bad defenders but always seem jittery at set pieces and I think they have been a bit lucky not to concede more tbh. Especially the goalie.

Wait until we concede a goal from a corner. It will be like Armageddon on here!

The stats don't support the view that we are weak in defence however we do look suspect when facing set plays. A side like Cardiff who are adept at set plays may cause us some damage.

2 of those 3 goals have cost us 5 points so far. If the defence was better maybe we would be top of the league? The teams we have beaten haven't been all that - there will be tougher challenges to come and tat's when you need a capable defence.

Plus we conceded 2 in the cup and went out which you have omitted from your stats.

If we took our chances, those goals conceded would not have cost us the points. If my Auntie had a **** she would be my Uncle :)

Alf. I don't count the reserve team in my stats you're right! 👏.

Danum Think the fans have moved on for the most part about our supposedly weak defence. Everyone knows we are weak on set plays and against more physical opponents but I believe the real contention with fans is lack of strength in depth. Who is there to replace White if he doesn't play 90 minutes of all 46 league games? Even replacing Cooper would be an issue. Berardi seems to have calmed down, but Struick untried as yet. Davis and Ayling who is not even fit just yet are really full backs. As for Casilla, he's improved but I can see Meslier displacing him before the end of the year. I believe we are one quality central defender short and fans don't want to be denied promotion because of this.

here is the thing for me.

we have only conceed 3 goals. however. and this is a huge however

we are weak in defence. we have so much of the ball we don't conceed many chances but the chances we do conceed we often let in

forest two chances one goal, swans one chance one goal. this means as a team we need the ball for 90 mins. if the other team get a chance they might score

also it is the nature of the goal. swans- corner, forest- corner. then look at other games salford could of scored three headers. ok they are poor but chances where there and other teams (like swans) will take them. wigan hit the post from cross. ok they are poor and had a man sent off. but other teams (swans) will punish us. yes three goals so far but on the eye test that stat is very misleading. fact is we can not defend set plays. fact is one chance against us is enough.

then it comes down to one thing. over the course of 50 games will it cost us? I don't think teams will keep missing like salford or hit the post like wigan. I think they will score like forest and swans. that costs points. that costs promotion.

Bermo what is humble pie called south of the river?!
Because you’ll be eating it everyday come next May!

12 Sep 2019 22:32:54
I don't know the name for it because as of yet i have never been wrong. but come may if we go up i hope all of you send me a massive slice of it and i will gladly eat it with a huge helping of kp cream.

Berm Think that would be called "smug pie" but introducing KP's genetic material as an ingredient taking it too far. Better off with the tattoo.

13 Sep 2019 12:41:35
fair enough George. I can't wait to have some as leeds need to go up and I am just fed up with being right all the time. I wonder why they call it smug pie?

13 Sep 2019 18:16:35
Whatever pie it is, I'm sure you'll be having it with mash and liqueur! Eugh!
No gravy! You cockneys are so weird! 😜😜.

13 Sep 2019 22:59:33
in my defence i hate pies and mash but espcially with liqure. same with fish and chips but if i'm going to have it, it will be ith gravy. best fish and chips I've ever have is in tingly. it was amazing.
