POST MATCH REACTION - what did you make of that?


Recommended Posts

First half OK. Passed and moved well. Kept the ball and didn’t give away silly fouls. Played to a plan.

Second half worked hard but none of first half positives on show.

Overall fairly grim as a match and we don’t really look a threat. Felt sorry for Rhodes as he was so isolated, yet still looks our best bet up front.

Nice to see us play like we actually had a game plan plus some effort and commitment to the cause.

 

Played some decent stuff first half, good goal.

 

Players are obviously on board with what Pulis is wanting them to do which is a good sign.

 

Baby steps but if we can get players like Iorfa, Flint, Windass and Brown back and add a striker we will look something like.

Foul on Shaw at the back post says otherwise...that's what the ref pointed to

Another one!

So Palmer fouled Palmer

Their bloke hand balled it

Odobajo kicked in the head

Paterson fouled

Shaw fouled on back post.

 

NO GOAL

Much better

 

Had Wildsmith moved his feet instead of standing with them planted to the ground as Ayew moved across to make his shot the result could have been very different.

 

Ayew had both sides of the goal to aim for JVA gave him his strong foot side...Wildsmith not to blame at all from 8 yards out ffs

 

The real problem started as we stood off every challenge on the LHS and let them play through us. We were too deep all 2nd half.

 

It was a great point away from home to 4th in the table

Our future is bright, our future is Pulis.

 

Got us organised, knows what he’s doing. We have safe hands.

 

Wasn’t my choice for manager but two games in and I’m seeing green shoots of hope.

 

 

Me too.

 

I think the result would have been different against Preston had we had 11 men on the pitch.

Decent point. I’d be interested to know why Van Aken flounced to his team mates after their goal. Looked as if he was wearing divers boots. Nice bit of typical Wednesday drama at the end as well. You’d think TP will be putting a zoom call in to his boss asking for a couple of strikers after the socialist bubble winter festival.

Hi Mr Chansiri
 

Can we please buy Ayew?

 

Ta x

The bloke is thirty years old but still looks like he could run through concrete walls all day!

Its actually frightening when you see a proper player in this league. 
No wonder Van Aken browned his trousers!

He was twice that.

Any one who think that was a poor performance cannot have watched us much recently 

Some great performances tonight and nice to see a manager that can make the right calls on subs and positional changes in the heat of the game

Let’s face it we win that game if they don’t have a PL standard international striker to bring on. Brighton wanted Ayew but were put off by the asking price 

 

We played well and just need to find some decent freebies to help get us goals between now and January

It was better, not great but better.........


Fortunately we’re not expecting great yet are we, as Pulis isn’t a miracle worker. 
The fact we’ve improved is a good start

I know it’s hard to say definitely but you’ve got to think a team playing as we did tonight wouldn’t have lost to Rotherham or Wycombe?

This was away to a side with much better players (and we still have significant injuries) and we looked quite a bit better than them in the first half. 
Second half was always going to be tough. I thought Ayew coming on was going to be the start of an avalanche of pressure and probably goals. 
But we didn’t collapse. 
Yes he scored but to be fair Van Aken is our third choice in that position and although hasn’t been as bad as other seasons isn’t fit to lace Ayew’s boots. 
Tony did him a favour taking him off. 
I think we will stay up if we get someone up top in Jan. 

I didn’t hate watching it either. 
Bring on Saturday!
