Now may be a good time to mention a couple of things:

- The last three games that Cameron and Rangel started resulted in 2 defeats and a draw - the latter being against Rotherham. It is pushing it a bit to imagine that the absence of either is the reason for our slump.

- Last night's team featured 10 of the 11 players who defeated Forest, with Scowen being the only absentee.

We clearly couldn't rouse ourselves to do what was required to defeat a very beatable Rotherham side, which is baffling because we clearly had the players to do it, and they lacked not for motivation a few months back. Maybe the losing streak has taken its toll, and the likes of Eze certainly seem less confident and willing to take risks.

What was really insane last night was the preference of almost every player (bar Eze) to hoof the ball aimlessly upward, about the only area in which Rotherham's team of giants were comfortable. The ironic cheers and mockery that greeted this routine was really quite startling - and thoroughly justified.
It was a tactic that was not only lazy, but, unimaginative and unnecessary. We had the likes of Freeman, Eze and Osayi-Samuel all on the pitch at the same time - clever, slick-passing players who could have won the game 'on the ground'. Somewhere, there is a problem that we do not understand. I don't, anyway!
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.
