why isn't this dude getting starts?


Because rather like Austin he's lacking match sharpness. Pereira needs to get used to the pace of the English game. Bilic is doing the right thing with him at the moment, introducing him slowly.

I thought the game mirrored the other home games this season, very pretty at times but lacking in the final third. That said it would've been really harsh on us had we lost that game. I thought we should've had more than one penalty, ref was really poor.

I'd still like to see us go 4-3-3 instead of playing in front of teams. The lone striker is going to find it very difficult with packed defences at home.

We started well, ended well and some of the stuff in the middle was OK although also a bit sloppy at times particularly Sawyers and Diangana who I thought was poor tonight.

Pereira looked good when he came on except his shooting was awful, Zohore looked a handful too, I maintain there's a player in him .

I'm going to have a go at predicting Slav's team:


                              Johnstone

Ferguson      Ajayi                  Bartley             Townsend

                   Sawyers             Brunt

Edwards                     Krovinovic                      Diangana

                                 Austin


Subs: Bond, Gibbs, O'Shea, Livermore, Zohore, Pereira, Robson - Kanu.

According to Slaven in his pre match interview we are considering changes for tomorrow night. Not sure who or how many but it might be an interesting line up.

Just a quick update on this one.

We have sold 1,954 tickets so far.

Remaining tickets: (658)

Block A     128
Block C       61
Block B     469

We've barely sold any tickets over the last few days, literally just selling the odd one here and there. Hopefully we'll manage to sell 2,000.

Just asked a vile fan at work who the best player in their team is. He said McGinn.

So let me get this right, you have just spent £125m on players and you have not bought anyone better than a player you had in your team last year?


I've said this all along. £26.5million on Mings is absolute madness. He was there last season so no improvement made. They've signed Wesley to replace Abraham and he's probably no better. £22 million or whatever it was so that's the best part of £50 million spent and no improvement. Matt Target £14 million on a distinctly average left back. Konsa from Brentford for £12m, when we signed Ajayi for £1.5m - £2m. Some of the business they've done is absolutely shocking.

Must be colour blind, seriously. It's not difficult to see what the colour is.

Regardless of seeing the kit how can anyone be taken seriously if they don't know our club colours? Partick Thistle mean nothing to me but I know they play in yellow, red and black FFS!

Clueless!

Am I the only person who thinks all of the Green and Yellow kit look awful?


Probably not but you're in a minority.

Grealish is a flat track bully. Effective in the Championship where he finds it more comfortable but doesn't affect games in the Premier League, he's not brave enough on the ball for a start. If you're the type of player he is you have to make things happen and have a major influence on games, he doesn't do that.

How many we sold for this, are we having the larger allocation?


We've been given 800 extra tickets.

Considering the game is live on Sky, 12,30 kick off and the tickets ain't cheap taking over 2,000 I think is not bad at all.

No offence but you're miles off the mark here.  Half the oppo fans I speak to don't even realise we're navy blue and white stripes, a lot think it's black.  Let alone have any idea what our away strips traditionally look like.  Show a random fan our away strip and most will conclude Norwich.




What the hell ....... lol. Any real football fan knows we play in blue and white. If they seriously think our stripes are black a) they know very little about football and b) they need to go to and buy some glasses. You must speak to some pretty odd opposition fans.

As for the away kit, everyone knows Norwich don't play in stripes, well possibly except the fans you speak to.  ;)

The yellow and green is an iconic kit. Anyone that see's that kit thinks of Albion. There are very, very few clubs who are instantly recognisable by both their home and away kits. We should be proud of this.

It's a great kit and is our away kit so why not wear it when we play away?

Navy / white at home, green / yellow away. Perfect. I don't know why anyone has a problem with that.

Just back from another great away day. Not a bad performance anywhere on the pitch although I must have another look at their goal as I swear I was as close to the scorer as any of our players! Grady exceptional talent Zohore much better today, played his part. Special shout for the much maligned Jake, excellent today.


Their goal was Ajayi's fault. I understand that Slaven has complained about the lack of closing down on the cross but I think that's a bit harsh I don't think there was the time for that.

If you look at Ajayi his body position is wrong. He is square on to the striker and it's this that ultimately makes him lose his balance and fall over. He should've had his body turned in the direction of the full back who was on the ball and turning his head / looking out the corner of his eye at his opponent. Had he done that the goal never would've come about. It was a superb cross and once it was delivered that well there was no way we could've avoided that goal unless the goalscorer made a mess of it.

💬LB: “Sam Field is a bit behind in game time with pre-season, so it might take him a bit longer to catch up. But we’ve got a game on Tuesday, so that will help out." #cafc

He did play on Tuesday aswell for 70 odd mins.


He played more pre-season football than Leko did. He figured in the Carabao Cup that no-one cares about. The lad has too much ability to be ignored like he is, not even in the 18. I've said for a long time there is some serious issue with Sam.

I may have missed something but how are we third in the table. Identical record to Swansea incl. goals scored and conceded so how are we above them?

lack of fitness due to not having a preseason, they have another player in a similar position, at least that’s what Bowyer said a week or so ago.


He had a pre-season.

I'm at a loss with Sam Field. Something is not right with him, somewhere. I'm sure it'll come out in the wash at some point but normal circumstances don't seem to fit with Sam. I'd love to know the issue with him.

So, lets talk VAR then. Those of us watching heard Jesus' view!


I hate VAR. Goal line technology, great, but VAR spoils the spectacle for fans. Leave it to the ref that's what he's there for. OK sometimes they get the decisions wrong but that's life, take it on the chin. Another day the decisions will go your way.

Great result. Need to get our first home win of the season now on Wednesday. Win that game and it's been a cracking start to the season.
