The whole defensive phase starting from midfield needs A LOT of work before the season starts. Teams are cutting through us repeatedly.

Hopefully Kante changes that dynamic but, at present, Jorginho and Kovacic as a sitting pair have been defensively awful this preseason. 

Barkley has to come on.

Looks like the happy days are over. There’s enough blame to go around and no player to single out. This boils down to poor team defending which can only be sorted out on the training ground. We have consistently shipped in goals this preseason that it’s becoming a habit that hopefully won’t carry into the real season. Anyway better now than next week.

Another game and another shocking defensive performance. Not at all convinced about us with a back four at all. Even going forward Dave and Emerson have been poor so that is not mitigating things. That is now 10 goals conceeded in 5.5 games with no improvement in any of the games and against sub-par opposition. Shocking. 

My biggest worry about SFL after watching Derby last year was the back line as they were also all over the place.

Until kante is back in his defensive position we won't know how the defence will hold up..hopefully we will find out in the second half

Hope Kante is given 45 mins in his natural position

No need to risk Kanté in this game. Totally unnecessary IMO.

He is not Superman, the organisation is to blame.

A top half finish is going to be extremely difficult but if Lampard can manage that he has potential.

We look very "leggy" maybe they've been put through the wringer by SFL so they're ready for a long season where we can top up the fitness whilst working on defending and set pieces and the like. I'm certain he's finding out a lot about the players as it is.
