    Get El Ghazi off. Terrible. Bring on Adomah

    Ok. Fair enough, my bad.

    Whilst I agree with your sentiments on collective responsibility, so many of the goals we concede come from individual errors. Players just not being in the right position. El Ghazi let Dyer walk in front of him through on goal for the second and the third was such a mess it's hard to pin on one individual. Although when you look at it you see Hutton flying in, which at first seems like a valiant effort but then you wonder why he's over on the left when he's playing right-back. It all seems extremely disorganized. As someone mentioned in the match thread, Smith doesn't have a great record in producing defensively resolute sides, and whilst I'm not panicking yet, it is concerning. Even moreso when you think we have Terry on board.

    Yep, ref was a tw*t. Books Fer in the 92nd when it should've been for tackle on Taylor. Same thing we've seen all season with treatment of Grealish. Finally get booked in stoppage time after hacking him all game. Total bullsh*t

    Moving forward and focusing on the positives. Lansbury made a real difference when he came on, threading a lovely ball through with his first touch, and would be a definite upgrade on Whelan if he can stay fit. Davis looked a threat and offered us a real physical presence up front. If Tammy goes he's not going to be capable of replacing his goals on his own, but a partnership with Kodjia could prove fruitful.

    Not sure our defensive woes are going to be rectified by parachuting in a couple of new signings. Unfortunately, I think it runs deeper than that. Three of our back four are very experienced defenders. We should be able to fashion something more solid out of that than what we're witnessing at the moment.

    Just a trip, nothing malicious.

    Calm down. Was a foul and a booking but that's it.

    Decent effort from Lansbury. Don't want to see Whelan anywhere near the first team again.

    Good chance for El Ghazi, weak execution. Looking better though.

    El Ghazi asleep for the goal

    O'Hare's been ok. Looked lively. Rushed things a few times but understandable given it's his first start since...when? Last years FA Cup or League Cup? More disappointed Whelan still gets the nod. Most experienced player out there and still hoofs it at the first sign of pressure. Would rather Lansbury or Bjarnason. Kodjia and/or Davis on too. Hogan...well, it's been said si many times. More shit defending
