    Why is Wini absolved? He’s been terrible (as well), as the commentators pointed out.

    What’s a matta with Perez? My ex-favourite player is terrible too!

    i agree i am not saying colback and dummet was better in any way…after seeing the score sheet i was gutted for thauvin and mbabu not playing…all day i was expecting that steve would surely bring in thauvin and mbabu….
    but at the same time except mbemba and coloccini all others were equally liable for the loss today….

    and usually when a new manager is apoointed the spirits of the fans go up and atleast i hope with that confident we might stay up…the atmosphere here at the club is like one in the graveyard…need to change that…..remember mackems changing a manager every year half way through the season and surviving…thats what i am asking for….survival is enough with new manager

    Did Steve watch the same game as me. West Brom were far better than us. Blaming pens not being given or saying that Darlow should have saved it doesn’t matter in a game where you’ve been dominated. It was inevitable they were going to score, they were the far better team.
    We shouldn’t have even been happy with a point from this as West Brom have been awful recently.

    Rotonda Ok then Wat about Pearson then he started that run or maybe o’leary he had a good season once or maybe the Ipswich or reading managers that had great seasons
    your problem is that you jump on instant success
    case in point Mbabu who would also be out of position btw
    Leicester are a well run club
    Southampton are a well run club in fact most prem clubs are well run clubs
    us, villa and the scum aren’t and look where we are!

    It gets to a point when you can’t keep saying “the performances are there but we’ve been unlucky.” If it happens every once in a blue moon or for a couple of games then yes, it is a tad unlucky. But it’s been this way all season and quite frankly it’s glaringly obvious that it’s because of Steve’s tactics. We allow every team to attack us and build momentum whilst hoping we can counter. But 9/10 that isn’t going to work because the opposition will grab a couple of goals or dominate us causing our heads to drop.

    its not the scoreline..i think most would accept a 1-0 if we had created chances and just been unlucky(like everton second half) but there was nothing but bad play…poor touches crap passing…no creativity at all against a side whos home record was only just better then villa’s who are bottom

    Sad stuff. But by all means keep going to the matches lads. Look how much we’ve improved over the last 8 1/2 years under Ashley with the ground full to look at the SD hoardings and not much else.

    Cyprus,
    He shouldn’t be. He was woeful today. If he can’t go down the outside and use his left foot he is not a great player. So one footed today it was embarrassing. Yes, he is out of position, but he had a few chances to use his left foot nd always cut back onto his right. Cost us big time.

    I find I have very little in common with McClaren’s comments.
    I am however surprised at how badly he has performed as our coach/manager. Ashley again has surpassed himself at finding someone inappropriate for a position at our club.

    Calm down dear
    I can assure you it’s not my fault
    I try to stay positive
    How about you try to stay adult

    Okay you’ve got me .. mea culpa (that’s Latin Jeff)

    Quoting your own frequent misjudgements was an adult reaction….

    But asking you for your opinions and explanation was very childish as you never rise above the level of personal abuse and are incapable of reasoned debate.

    Your challenge is to justify your position.

    To be fair when I first knew we were after SM, my heart sank and further still when we kept pursuing him after he had rejected us twice. Oh for a bit of class and pride from this club..!

    Mac,
    In the pub, didn’t hear the interview on tv, and can’t play it and listen here….

    Did he really say we started well? Did they not have 5 corners in the first 15 minutes????

    Sorry, at any well run club time would be up.

    We gave up 16 corners McLaren. We weren’t even in the match from the start. They were all over us as most teams are. You can’t keep giving up 65% of the possession with a team as poor as we are and think you can win Steve.

    SM has to go. Every other side in the bottom half dozen are at least trying a new manager.
    But, it won’t make any difference as we are no longer a football club. We are run from the south of England by MA and an old bloke who was a very average manager.

    Looking forward to February. That’s when I cancel the standing order on my season ticket and bring this living death to a close.

    Basically he’s saying we started both half’s really good?

    Not sure I’ve got an answer for that tbh.

    We got outplayed by a, let’s face it, p!ss poor West Brom side managed by a throwback to the 90’s old dinosaur who apparently wouldn’t be able to outfox our dear shteve.

    Isn’t that right?

    In the bottom three, playing football that can only be described as dogsh!t.

    But…er…erm.

    Everything’s fine though right?

    cant agree with macca on his assessment of the game utter bull to paper over the cracks and to say we were unlucky over to games is just grasping at straws…..luck comes and goes thru out the season….u could say we were very lucky not to be 3-4 goals down in the first half against everton….sick of his flanel now

    Lilo –please******please*********please.

    Don’t ever again suggest to that knacker Jib/Jane/Jeff to do a match report/assessment. It is truly the worst I have ever read and demonstrates his lack of football knowledge. I find that these Johnny come Lately rugby players who convert to watching football – generally haven’t a clue about the game.
    I repost his shyte to make my point:-
    Jib // Dec 28, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    As soon as Anita tweaked his hammy it should have become obvious to all how great his contribution is.
    Tiote to his credit kept it simple when he came on
    Dummett better than some I’ve seen handling Stéphane Sessègnon
    Janmaat no complaintss
    Colo was a rock
    Chancel , it’s hard too believe how young he is.
    I suspect Ginger Jack is playing through injury but he was steady away
    Wijnaldum clearly was picked out by Pulis as our danger man he was usually double teamed and on occasion had 3 to beat.
    Sissoko always comes up short against physical teams
    Mitro was workmanlike no more
    Perez should have been in the hole not trying to make Mitro look better
    Darlow – oh dear – not his fault – he seemed to generally play better 2nd half.

    Ashley is capable of basic arithmetic he can easily work out that 40pt safety needs 23 pts from 19 games. As this is now an average of over 1.2 pts per game – the same level of form as our top ten finishes – it is a standard we have reached in only two seasons in five. Are these good odds ?

    He has limited choices.

    1. Stick with Macca and hope for a turn round.
    2. Get rid and look for a ‘bounce’ manager to get us up the table.
    3. Spend on the players we’ll need to up the form – loan or sign
    4. Tinker with the squad – with minimal ins and outs.

    The trouble is it’s up to Ashley – and Ashley alone – to sort out the mess he created. Does he want us to stay in the PL?

    You know you’re in the sh!te when you boast about going toe to toe with the mighty west from FFS.

    If only we got the penalty eh?…well the other side of that ridiculous coin is we were also very lucky they didn’t put more of their 20 odd chances in the back of the net and put 8 past us.

    Guys a fcuking clown…we have to make the change now or we’re knackered

    The previous 5 games sum up exactly why we are where we are.

    We are a team that are capable of beating good sides, personally not sure why other than the attitude of the players changing depending upon the opposition.

    It’s no good beating teams at the top end of the table and dropping points to those around you. It’s a cliche but games like today really are worth 6 points.

    I don’t like McClaren, I’ve made that clear but we don’t have an out and out goalscorer as we have in the past with Ba or Remy, we only really have a one player in midfield who chips in with goals.

    If you can’t score you will always struggle to get points, especially when we are as poor at the back as we are capable of being.

    Colback was the best passer on the pitch according to the stats – that includes both sides. It all seems slightly pointless having a neat and tidy passer in the same side as Sissoko who crusades with the ball. It is like a free for all across the pitch, everybody playing to their own attributes. I just cannot see where any kind of cohesion is being coached into the ‘team.’

    If you take all the available players + the players out on loan, there is a working team in there somewhere. McClaren has got to start picking a team instead of the best match day individuals.

    Vuckic isn’t getting into the Wigan side, but surely he has got to be worth a recall and experimented with in training.
