is this the first "double" against us this season?--

some looked a little jaded and tired---and probably be better for a rest----but we do not really yet have proper strength in depth----unlike a lot of teams---this was shown against Stoke in the Carabao Cup,---

just a word on corners and free kicks --is it me but we just dont seem like scoring---!!  this is where Conor,s sweet left foot is sorely missed,!

It certainly is. The first time we played them we should have won. Moyes got his tactics spot on yesterday. He doubled up on Jack and Smith didnt react to that until after about 75 minutes. What we have achieved over the last 12 months has been pretty special but smiths inability to change tactics in-game are a big weakness.

It isnt the first time we have mentioned this.

Thought it was dam we should have got a point in the earlier game---we cannot rely on Jack all the time that happened far far too much last season the rest must pitch in and come to the table,

im not sure we can blame the players for this, we have quality in the team, but we are just managed wrong, , smith has to learn how to sub and how to change tactics, until he can do that, we will not climb the ladder in the prem.  i was thinking a short while back the way we were going we would finish better than what i thought we would at the beginning, of the season,  about half way,  now im not so sure,

As touched on already, DS seems to have an inability to respond during the match.  Whether this is tactical or substitutions.  Unless DS can show he can adapt I feel the next stage is to get a manager who is more adept at reacting to a match when in progress.  Tactical flexibility and ability to change your formation are a must.
