Playing five at the back left us to light in midfield. Once we changed that we looked a lot better balanced, and it allowed Doucoure to get further forward.
Great comeback and some great goals. Also have to say Gomes looked very composed when he came on (apart from his dodgy shot) . All bodes well for the future.

Thought Gomes was terrible when he came on. Missed a sitter, wasted a golden opportunity by blasting over rather than sliding in doucore. Gave the ball away numerous times.

{Ed025's Note - i thought he was ok dan, not great but got involved and shored up the midfield mate..

Interesting how we all have different opinions regarding players - personally thought he had more bad touches than good ones.
However the change of system going to a back 4 made a real difference and it’s so refreshing to have a manager who can read the game and make appropriate changes.

{Ed025's Note - a proactive manager is something we have been missing for years dan, hopefully he can carry it on mate..

Gomes was calm on the ball which is what we were lacking. As for his miss, at least he was there to have a go. The guy had a good game, no idea what you were watching.

14 Sep 2021 11:37:50
I was watching the match Brass. All a matter of opinions and I didn’t think he did that well when he came on.
Think the change of shape made all the difference not him coming on.

14 Sep 2021 11:40:33
Imo he had a bit of a mixed bag. Obviously both his misses were terrible for different reasons and although he wasn't great he did change the game by giving us that extra body in midfield and linked up with the 3 forward players. I also thought he kept possession really well. I think he will do a decent job as a sub for the rest of the season.

14 Sep 2021 14:53:09
I thought he did a reasonable job, and to be fair to him scoring has never been his strong suit, probably only got a couple since he's been here.

Glad that poor refereeing performance didn't cost us the game. Fantastic second half and we'll deserved 3points. COYB.

Rafa on his talk after the match chalk and cheese with Carlo, where has this guy been all this time, what a manager we can go places now.

The rafaloution has begun.

13 Sep 2021 22:03:24
Really good second half especially after going behind . Have to say I was doubtful about Townsend and Gray but both are proving me wrong . On a different note referee was terrible tonight, Richy was targeted from the start with some terrible tackles going unpunished.

The post match interview from Rafa should have everyone on board. Professional, funny, driven and so much more different than Koeman, silva, Ancelotti.

{Ed025's Note - i just hope the doubters and nay sayers have plenty of custard with that humble pie they are eating smit.. :)

13 Sep 2021 22:23:24
Good win, last year we would have crumbled after going 1-0 down. I thought that we were better balanced when Gomes came on, before that we were too defensive, we need flair players in the middle. I hope that James is given a chance at some time.

{Ed025's Note - rafa tried something different and it never worked mike, but he had the balls to realise the mistake and changed it, thats the sign of a good manager mate..

13 Sep 2021 22:31:04
Count me as one of those, Ed!

{Ed025's Note - i hope you have changed your mind now hugo mate..

13 Sep 2021 22:56:16
Hear hear Ed. Early days but what a breath of fresh air. Never gives up, always coaching through the game and never satisfied.

{Ed025's Note - if he had some dosh we would be even better smit, proper manager and coach mate..

13 Sep 2021 23:24:20
We are still to see him yet against some top teams Ed25 but I think Rafa is looking more and more like the medicine we have needed for the last few seasons. Not jumping the gun but it’s could be a good season this year. It was this sort of game we lost last year so already looking up.

Only 32 points from safety!

{Ed025's Note - we will have our share of losses BR but not too many i hope, two hard games against villa and utd in the next few weeks will show us where we are really and its how we deal with them mate..

14 Sep 2021 22:27:35
Very true Ed25. Let’s keep racking those points up and hope that when we don’t win, the anti-Rafa brigade don’t surface.

{Ed025's Note - yeah thats a worry BR, but if we get the commitment and fortitude that we have shown up to now surely no one can complain mate..

13 Sep 2021 22:00:14
professionals like Townsend who work hard and make themselves available for selection will stand us in more stead than half assed playboys who can't complete 90 minutes.

{Ed025's Note - your spot on lee..

Agree2 Disagree0

Not a bad left foot on him either. Let’s hope he keeps fit and continues this form. Bit of competition from the playboys should help motivate and reduce risk of burnout.

13 Sep 2021 21:55:28
Rafa changes it and BINGO.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely GB, the difference to last season is chalk and cheese mate..

What a fabulous 10 minutes 60-70! We were on absolute fire. Great to see Rafa change it even though we scored. Again the new signings have had a massive impact along with Aby D who has had a great game. We're going to have lulls and players will lose form but I'm seeing a different mentality. When we went behind last year we got ragged, lost shape and got well beaten. We look sharper and fitter as a unit. I'm looking forward to seeing Rafa's tactics against the top clubs and then we'll have a better barometer for our quality and ability to compete for the top end of the table. Really chuffed. Well done lads!

5 at the back is drawing Burnley onto us all the time. We look so disjointed, Rafa needs to change it ASAP.

{Ed025's Note - i agree pauly..

Good news Pauly, they changed it! ?.

13 Sep 2021 22:34:37
Fantastic I know, amazing what happens when we play to our strengths I. e. attack and press, rather than invite pressure.
Great end to the game but we can't keep giving teams a one nil head start. In Rafa we trust.
