I'll add that Cavare for them looked very good as well at Right back. If we lost Ferguson in the summer I'd go in for him, he's only 24 too.

I thought he was fantastic. Pace, power and he really intimidated Diangana. He was actually scared to take him on!

Make no mistake about it, we could have easily have drew or lost that game. However, a perfect 1-0 away from home (not usually an easy place to go) if you are going to be considered contenders for the top two.

Johnstone deserves huge credit for making vital saves, which gave us a platform to go on and win the game.

Bartley and Livermore also played very well. These are three players who I will usually be the first to criticise too.

Pereria also got better as the game went on, especially in the last 20 minutes. Credit to Hal for his link up play, which led to chances for some of the other players behind him.

The only gripe would have been the Hegazi sub. Sometimes, I think it can be more detrimental to a team if you bring a defender on in the last 5 minutes and it changes the shape. It could have been costly with his extremely late lunge - anybody else have their heart in their mouths!? The better sub would have been to bring Brunt on for Diangana, who looked absolutely shot in the last 10 minutes.

Onwards and upwards!

Thought he was the pick of the back four. Deserves to keep his place at the minute.

I’ve got to say, even taking away all offensive elements to his play, first and foremost his defending (his box, crosses, one-on-ones) absolutely superbly.

New deal please!

The kids a class act. I'm sure he will be the club captain within a year or two.

Agree with this.

When he plays well, we play well. It’s that simple.

After the dross we’ve been served up in midfield these last 5 years or so, it’s a pleasure to watch him play. Long may if continue.

Time to give O'Shea a chance.

I wouldn't fancy playing O'Shea with Ferguson LB - way too inexperienced.

Other than that one ricket, he hasn't played badly this season.

When Hegazi comes back, that's when we may see him depart the first 11.

Anyone care to dare when / if he’s going to keep a clean sheet this season?

Or more so, when are the 'team' going to keep a clean sheet?

Defensively outstanding. Even at Left back he did a fantastic job. It's great having two really competent right backs, after some of the dross in that position that we've had over the last few years.

He also seems a really positive, switched on guy, so keep it up, Nathan.

My concern is that - and I might be wrong here - but is he out of contract at the end of the season?

Ugly, but very good point in the circumstances.

Subs changed it and eventually - eventually! - the ability to press higher up the pitch and take gambles put them under pressure.

I thought Nathan Ferguson was simply outstanding in an unfamiliar position. He actually looks like a very solid defender.

It’ll look a great point if we can turn Huddersfield and the Cowley’s over next week.

Fulham are a good side but we are making them look amazing. No intensity or pressing from us whatsoever.

Too right. Where’s the energy? The gamble? We’re losing here...

No intensity or urgency at the minute (well, all game actually).

Asking Austin to run around on his own. Not sure what the plan was, although Fulham have huge quality.
Sleep walking to a 2-0 loss here.

in my time best Godden worse Johnstone

We've had far, far worse than Johnstone. Pascal Zuberbühler? He was absolutely atrocious. I'd say Carson was worse too.

100% starts for me next game. Looks classy and direct - exactly what we need.

I like Krovinovic but I’d seriously consider playing MP as a no. 10, or even a change of system - 433 - as we don’t need two holding mids in certain games, especially at home.

It’s way, way, way too slow. Defenders and midfielders passing sideways. We’re not learning at all from or first 4 games.

We need to liven up. If a penalty save isn’t enough to motivate you, nothing is.

Two performances against a stubborn Millwall team - both at home too - and we have looked really, really poor.

It is clear Burke cannot play upfront on his own, especially when playing against a team that sits in deep, when he is required to hold up the ball.

Suddenly, after dominating corners against Forest, we now can't defend one to save our lives. It's not like we're lacking the height in the team either.

Expecting much, much better against Luton on Saturday.

Not sure about this - experience is invaluable but we have plenty of options in deep central midfield areas.

And yet people tell me that he shouldn’t go out on loan!

There is a good player in there, one i’m confident will make the grade at championship level, but there is no point letting them stagnate here. Send him out on loan till January, the same as Leko. Both need a run of games.

I feel like I’ve been saying this on repeat for the last three years.

I think both of them have lost a huge amount of development time by sitting on our bench and playing for the under 23s.

Regardless, would you have been disappointed if Johnson had conceded that goal? He would have had pelters from fans and no defender would have been criticised

Not disputing that the goalkeeping was absolutely dreadful - without a doubt the worst part of the goal.

What I was saying was the overplaying at the back caused the clear chance at goal; something we saw time and time again last season.

No, if you watch again, it was poor goalkeeping.

But the overplaying at the back led to the unnecessary chance - as bad as the goalkeeping was.

Luton messing around with it at the back. Where have we seen that before?  ;D

(The goalkeeper did chuck it in the back of the net though...)

Hooters used to be a good spot pre game...

Hooters is the designated Away pub I'm led to believe...

The signing that we've needed the for the last few years - athleticism, technical and can spot any kind of pass. Really looking forward to watching him play.

Outstanding business for that price. He’s a player I desperately wanted us to go for so hopefully he will come up with the goods - whether that’s as a CB or CDM.

Seems a bit arsey from Van Der Sar. Foster would have been in his early 20's at United, I'd hardly say he's an unprofessional footballer during his career.

True, but he’s known to be a poor trainer and especially in his younger days, didn’t take football seriously.

Seems a nice fit for him - really hope it all works out and will follow their results curiously.
