Wilder has done well, and a blinding first prem season.

It will be interesting to see how they fair this year but the purchasing of players like Burke wont help second season syndrome one bit.

For me they could be top 10 or bottom 3 i just don't know with them. There are a lot of teams, us included who could struggle this year.

It would seem Villa have learnt nothing after last year. They'll have blown over £200m in 3 windows.

Bit non plussed.

Getting Burke off the books is a bonus based on what he has produced here, but Callum Robinson just isnt very good. If he was Wilder wouldn't be swapping him for Burke.

Championship player.

Simple question, who do you think will do more for us this season?

Wilder plays a type pf football that only certain players fit, look at the two Derby players he's just brought, most people wouldn't touch them. He thinks he can turn Burke then great, it certainly isn't happening at Albion. Robinson hasn't had a prem chance so lets give him a go before we right him off.

At times last season Burke would have been worth a few minutes and id be in no rush to say Callum Robinson is necessarily better than Burke.

Robinson changed games when he came on for us, Burke couldn't change a lightbulb.

For a record signing I don't think I've seen a worse player, his loan spell in Scotland was terrifying. Even at that level he looked pedestrian. He's one of those players that as he gets older he gets worse not better I'm afraid.

He'll be League one/two in a couple of years.

if the straight swap for Robinson goes ahead I think Wilder may just be about to come unstuck after a brilliant run.

For me a nice 70s style stripes  home would be lovely.

A full white number with red socks as a second

A full black as a third

Who will be the sponsor? I'm going gambling site.

Livermore giving a great interview. The pressure just got to them.

It might well be a blessing in disguise this. Nobody at the club should be under any illusions about what the team requires now.

Well done Albion, you never make it easy.

But I love you.

Sawyers can’t come out for the second half can he?

What has happened to him?

Is this the worst anyone’s felt about a promotion or relegation?

Honestly the great escape felt nothing like this. I feel sick.

To say we look shot is an understatement. Have to blame Slav for this, he’s not prepared them for this at all. They’re all over the place.

Friday was a perfect example of pressure, an early goal against us and tiredness. A perfect storm.

The pressure just crushed most of the players and Slav just couldn't find a way to lift them, this is worrying, especially with a goal just before half time should have done his job for him.

Had we have scored the early goal that would have been a 3 nil win to the good guys all day.

Some players looked shot, Sawyers looks like he can barely lift his legs.

Psychology is what separates the winners from the losers a lot of the time, the winning mentality. Lets just hope on Weds the relief of a HUGE second chance gives them an extra yard against QPR. It really should.

With our strike force and keeper it's a miracle we're this close to promotion.

You can’t argue with that statement.

Whatever happens I can’t see us starting next season with any of them in the first team.

Yep credit to them. They had a couple of small wobbles but winning that Barnsley game when they were given a right run shows character. I’ll say this their fitness levels compared to ours is embarrassing.

I put £100 on a Brentford win to ease the pain. Happy to lose that. How much do I put on QPR Wednesday is the question? 😂😂😂

This has the feeling of one of those games where we could play until midnight and probably only have one decent chance. Dreadful game.

Big halftime this.

They’ve somehow got to find some energy and pace.

This is a absolute Shambles. Miles off the pace and playing like they just woke up.

Be a miracle if Slav turns this around because the players in the field currently aren’t going to.

As much as I’d like to see this go ahead I can’t see it happening without huge protests from players and loads refusing to play.

I’m astonished this isn’t getting covered more. Talksports Jim white had a good piece on It today where the kick it out guy was embarrassed.

Leeds should be getting seriously sanctioned for trying to cover it up.

Good win but I’d look at freshening the team now. Too many aren’t in form and it can’t hurt.

We have a serious issue with youngsters at the club not wanting to stay when they mature. One or two is acceptable but we have a huge amount who don’t want to stay with the club.

Good riddance for me. You don’t want to play for the Albion then fine but when you’re developed by the club and do the dirty then something leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
