Performance was about 90% there yesterday. Mitchell needs to show a bit more intent to drive forward when he has the ball and would be a huge threat if he ran at his man when in the final third - something Turton did quite well yesterday.
Ward needs to be a bit more decisive as he slows the play down when on the ball - he also needs to get much higher up the pitch because when he does he provides more options and it’s no coincidence when he finally got in to the box that he scored! Yates needs to remember to stay closer to Madine as when he’s out on the flank he looks quite isolated. CJ could possibly benefit from drifting inside a bit more too when he’s being man-marked out of the game- the lad needs a plan B.
Madine needs a bit more positional awareness in terms of where his runners are going to be. His hold up play is excellent but sometimes the knock ons are too obvious and a fraction too slow so become easier to defend against.
The team needs to be a bit more positive and hopefully the midfield begin to make more runs forward and take some shots.

I was impressed with what I saw.
We potentially have 7 key players out of that squad too...
Garbutt
Virtue
Kai-Kai
Gretarrson
Ballard
Woodburn
Dougall

And with Gabriel and Anderson as well as Lubala, Sarkic and Kemp pushing for playing time there’s certainly room to improve further.

I still believe Critchley and squad will get us out of this mess. It is worrying though, every single week we create very little in the final third and concede goals from poor defending.

Performance was nowhere near 90% of what I am expecting...each to their own...I think Crewe will be bang average this season and we had 2 shots on target..a draw was a fair result

He's the one player I would replace at the moment - he shows flashes but a bit like the Fonz when he wore tangerine doesn't insert himself enough on the game to be a guaranteed starter.
