Another game without a goal and I can’t believe the change that we’ve seen among the players.
We’ve gone from scoring plenty and defending terribly to now defending a bit better and not being able to get a goal for love nor money.
I’m not really sure what I prefer, too, but I’d like to think once we sort the attacking out again we’ll have a nicely balanced side.
We could have beaten Brentford anyway, to be honest, with a number of big chances that would go in on another day so let’s take a look at the reaction to the result and Karanka’s words:
???? @Karanka: "We will win games doing that and I can't say anything bad today as the players gave everything."

Not sure what game everyone else was watching tonight but we were very unlucky not to win tonight. Hit the woodwork three times, looked a stone wall penalty but one lapse in defence and we lose. As a whole, the run is not good, but tonight, in isolation, we were hard done by.

Our last 3 home games are all winnable, and if we continue to create the chances we did last night we should surely take the points in at least 2 of them. It may not be too pretty, but we can get the job done. #nffc

"Players gave everything" – may be a coded message that the some of the players are clearly not going to good enough to be part of his plans.

Another toothless performance. If that's giving everything, I'd hate to see us on a bad day. Massive job on in the summer!

Certainly, it’s a good thing we’re not lower down in the league than we are because with this form we’d be struggling to stay up.
I think it’ll click soon enough, though, and then we should finally have more balance to our play.
The sooner the better!
