Slow start to match. To two or three players of the starting line-up are out of form. We didn't really liven up until the subs arrived

I thought Morsy was a bit casual in possession early on. I think Woolfenden gets a hard time-he’s a good ball playing CB but we don’t seem to allow him to bring the ball out that often. He was out in trouble for the first goal by Clarke and did well not to give away a penalty. I’m really hoping the team starts to click again soon. Burns didn’t do much positive today. Still the same players who have been so good this season so I’m sure we can come good and go on another run. West Brom defended REALLY well today so let’s not beat ourselves up too much.

Gobsmacked why David has been marked so high - he was non existent first half , always checking back. Didn’t improve second half either. Luongo controlled the match much more than Morsy in this particular match. Woolfie plays with an arrogance that he’s hasn’t earned as yet - promising yes. Edmundson was impressive and Broadhead much improved. Hats off to the spirit of Town but ability wise we may be just a little short

The final third is crucial and they looked nervous throughout the first half. Going for the jugular in the second half was more like the second half last week. Some strange refereeing decisions. Woofie was caught out completely. Chappers was strangely quiet - perhaps it was the tactics?

We have a few who seem to be off more than they’re on-form. Wes Is one and his very average form was amplified because Omari looked so much better. Omari hasn’t looked as good when starting games as yet but I suspect he deserves another chance soon- noting he also always puts in a huge defensive effort which may be what Luke and Harry need to protect our right defensive channel and wing?

Once again disappointing first half and an excellent second half. Of the starting 11 in my view only Moore, Edmundson and Broadhead played really well, however the game changer again was a Hutchinson who gets my MOM and should be considered for a start against Millwall. The defence continues to worry me. Wolfy should have gone in hard when he had a chance on Fellowes and it was a 50/50 ball, and swift was given far too much space when he scored and possibly Vas should have got a hand on it. Could Cam play alongside Edmundson? Maybe also Travis in for Mass, for the next match?

Off day for our defence. Both baggies goals from poor defending. Top marks for 2nd half display but why always the slow start & always having to come back into games? Still plenty of effort right to end & if only those forwards whose confidence seems lacking can regain early season form then we can still stay in the mix for the automatic promotion spot.

We can only play one way and that's on the front foot. We look very vulnerable when we let teams come at us earlier in games this is noticeable especially in away games. It's obvious to anyone who actually watches the games we haven't got an outstanding centre back at the club. I think Al Hamadi is going to be a massive signing for the club going on the few touches i saw yesterday. I think a signing a dominating physical presence at the back is needed in the mould of a Tony Mowbray figure would change things massively.

We've got to sort out this defence. Too casual at times & Wolfenden seems in a trance when playing out from the back. Too many early goals being conceded. Whilst playing out from the back seems to be the Managers philosophy we must have some variation & I'm not advocating the return of the long ball game.
As said by others, some of the players seem tired (Clarke/Burns/Chaplin) & would change the back 4 with
Edmundson playing off his favoured foot with Burgess alongside. JUST A THOUGHT!!
