Watched the goal again.

Berardi is hugely at fault.

Backed off, no where near tight enough.

Then Hernandez and Berardi both staggered backwards because a dummy run.

Allowed more room for the shot.

100th game or not that was very poor.

What is all the sentimental stuff from TC about making Berardi captain for the day :duno:

Our defenders stood off far too much today. Brum had loads of wayward shots, said to my mates one will hit the target which will cost us a goal

Unfortunately the writing was on the wall :(

Should be first choice right back for me, he is a defensive right back, so like all full backs needs to be matched with a right midfielder to form a natural partnership.

our main issue is that we don't have those partnerships on either side, Ayling with a defensive midfielder type (Dallas best we have for this) would give us a more natural way to play.
Every game I predict a 3 - 1 Leeds win, I am traditional like that.

Putting aside the "cult hero" thing.

2 sendings off this season

Perhaps time to admit he is a give it all guy but actually not a good player.

No excuse for diving in on a yellow.

Didn't see the first booking but the second booking was a correct decision and a silly tackles to make. Like you say Berardi is a guy that gives his all and is a real warrior but does lack he real quality needed. Good squad player, especially given his willingness to play anywhere but our defence is falling apart at the moment.

agreed.

Unfortunately we have to many of those and not enough true quality first choice options.
