Play like we did last we get smashed.

We will see how good slavens man management skills are hopefully we see a bounce and reaction from the team.

As Gibbs isn't fit and ferguson has failed off coupled with how Townsend played I would give him a game. I also would be tempted to start big ken.

Not sure he particularly fits the system. Also not sure we set up for the lone striker to score lots. The goals are coming from second row at the moment.  Hopefully we go in for another striker in January

He's still a youth player we forget that because of how he has burst on to the scene and been man of the match a few times.

Needs to be taken out the firing line for a while and get an arm round the shoulder. He will be full of confidence if he signs that long term deal

Was his type of game today scrappy bitty horrible conditions that needed somebody to hold the ball up and be a nuisance.

He deserved his goal be nice if he got a few more.  Hes never a starter but serves a use off the bench

3 games in a week. Important to use our strength in depth.
I would play Phillip's if fit and start Edward's (don't want diangana to burn out)

Successful sides win when they don't play well. It was nice to see us be more dogged and gritty today, and play when we got the opportunity.

This is the type of game we were losing last season or at least dropping points...

John stone had a good game got us in trouble playing out the back but otherwise better. Centre backs solid as ever bartley in particular played well. Hegazi nice to see but based on his performance probably isn't quite there- inches a way from a penalty and throwing away 2 points.

Periera has to go through the middle. Yes we need to rotate to keep fresh but playing him out wide is a waste.

Top of the league ugly win (they missed an open goal which would have changed the game) were top were still going at 2 points a game. Follow it up with a win v barnsley.

Come on you baggies

Still look fragile at set pieces at times
First goal was sloppy
No clean sheet
Diangana injury

3 points
4 goals
1st league goal for Austin
Other goals for periera and diangana
1st goal for sawyers
Dominate again
Top of league

With them losing today and us winning - a point there will be fine. The pressure will be on them to win.

Maybe catch them on the break and take all 3 -  COYB

Correct take a point and keep ticking over.

Come on, he hardly put a foot wrong.
Only rick I can recall is when Hugill got between him and Ajayi and had a free header.

Bartley was a colossus today. Back 4 solid ferguson should keep his place over Gibbs for me. Furlong tidy all game.

Austin was our poorest today think game would have suited Zohore or HRK (who did well when he was on- Edwards had a few chances to square for tap ins but was selfish)

Best performance of season and there's still more to come.

Didn't give anything for Johnstone to do and coincidently kept a clean sheet

Well done wba take a point at Leeds

Needs tying down or one of the big boys will come in with an offer he can't refuse sadly.

Gibbs ain't getting his place back for a while

Same lineup as last match for me, except Diangana for Kroc. One of these matches we will explode for 6 goals, I think this may be the one.

Correct no need to make too many changes. Dont want to rush Hegazi back and see him get I hired again. The only other one I would be tempted to switch is the keeper.

You could also ask to be reminded how many errors he has made this season or how many clean sheets we have .
This whole argument is getting a little bit “brexit” and people not being able to quite get what the opposing view is saying
I’ve said before , I don’t know him, I have no reason to dislike him , I never boo at matches (but can actually understand why some choose to) I don’t need a scapegoat

I personally do not think he is good enough for a team that has ambitions of promotion, I get responses detailing that he saved some penalties and had a good match against derby and Fulham....that’s great , but there are far to many errors, failure to move, failure to dive, failure to command his area.

Again, I cannot see us getting automatic promotion with him in goal,we cannot keep having to score 3 goals to win a match.

Brexit analogy is a good one.

I agree he has 1 blinder every so often but more often than not he is very suspect I would like to see us try bond or al habsi. And even if he stays as number one this season and we got promoted we would need a keeper no questions.

As you said no signs of improvement doesn't dive half the time doesn't close down the attacker always seems rooted to the spot. Sometimes by gambling you get lucky. Throwing an arm at the effort may yield a save so why not give it a go

The first one was all happening so quick I dont think he had time to react.

The second one a better keeper would have read the situation quicker and hurled himself forward trying to block or smother

I dont blame him for either but he seems pretty ordinary - if I was manager I'd be tempted to give Bond or Habsi a run just to see what my options are

Looks so suspect on crosses. Every so often has a blinder like v Derby and Fulham but then most of the time he is poor. Gives our defence butterflies. Think even bringing Hegazi in we will still look suspect at the back because of the keeper. Not sure why we don't give one of the other ones a go

His 'performance' clutching his side when seemingly not touched by Challobah today was a total embarrassment. Someone needs to have a word on that front.

A downside to his game. He is a wonderful player and makes us tick

Our bouncebackability is another level.

The second goal was a flashback from last season. We need to stamp out these errors and stop giving ourselves mountains to climb we won't be able to keep doing it.

We seem to go missing for spells in the game.

Furlong best offensive right back we have had for a long time. Looks a bargain.
Ajayi looks better every game be nice to see him with Hegazi.
Ferguson performed admirably out of position again (needs a new deal)
Phillips and furlong have got a Very good partnership at the moment, Phillips back to his best today after a quieter game at Fulham.
Diangana looks a class act hope West Ham don't recall him.
Billic changed his personnel (wasn't afraid to hook a big player at half time)

Big win 8 unbeaten looking good going forward some hard games coming. Come on you baggies

Jonas son loved a Derby goal seem to remember him scoring a goal v blues and the following season at seal park. We didn't pick up many points without him. Modern day legend will be looked upon in 30 years as fondly as people of an older generation see Robertson and wile

Top career big man good luck on the next adventure

We were much better when he replaced Livermore as he’s an actual footballer. He was busy, showed for the ball, kept possession in tight areas, his decision making was good. His team mates trusted him. He kept it simple. That in turn allowed Edwards to get into one on ones with their full back and Periera came alive. You could also see the pressure lifting off Sawyers. I’d like to see him alongside Romain in midfield with Livermore on the bench and Diagana and Periera playing with Edwards in front and Austin or Zohore.

I agree.
Especially at home when we want to attack and people are sitting in. They maybe some
Games where you need Livermore for more of a scrap

I mean, I will keep quoting this message until it's untrue  :-X ;D

It took us a stupid amount of time to get a clean sheet last year looks like this year is no different. Win this and keep our 2 points a game average.

We haven't been convincing at home yet be nice to win by a few I can see us giving somebody a pasting at some point

Our worst performance of the season until the last 20 mins when we seemed to come to life. Tactically we were being killed first 25 mins it was wave after wave, noticed billic pull over Livermore after that we seemed to be a lot closer to them and I thought we looked comfy defending (albeit I didn't think we would go get a goal)

They got a fortuitous goal then billic had to roll the dice- arguably his subs won us a point. Edwards was unplayable I think if he had been on 10 mins earlier we might have had enough to grab the other 2 points. Krovonovic was tidy when he came on and kept us calm and HRK offered us some presence up top we hadn't had all game.

Overall still not convinced by keeper although he couldn't do anything about the goal.
Thought our defence was decent. I really like furlong. The way ferguson is playing you wouldn't have Gibbs back in side. Big semi and Bartley kept the best striker in the league very quiet today- 2 of our best players today in my opinion.

Thought our midfield and front are players were all at sea today. Besides periera none of them really had a good game and those who weren't not hooked could count themselves lucky as it could have been any of them.

I would have taken a point before the game and considering we didn't start well or really get a foot hold in the game until the last 15 mins it was a very good point against a very good team. Follow it up with a good win at home next time out and it will look even better that point.

Credit to players for resilience and fight. Credit to fans who were loud and proud and credit to the boss who was proactive throughout and kept our unbeaten run in tact

Handled the dangerous Knockaert with ease today, he had to switch sides to get any influence. Seems a very positive guy with a bright future, get hin tied down asap.

Bang on- need a new long term deal

First home win monkey off our back and after conceding after 26 seconds youcant argue with a win.

Johnstone after a solid game at Derby back to a Carson Esque performance in the sticks the second goal was a absolute clangger. He and Bartley mucking about at the back at the start also hurt us. Bond or al habsi next time for me please. Can't see a clean sheet any time soon with Johnstone in goal.

I thought that we did ok overall some parts of game we were unplayable and others I thought we flattered to deceive. Still bedding people in, Austin still will away from being fit.

Livermore best game in Albion colours. Semi was awesome. Ferguson not a left back would prefer Brunt if both Gibbs and Townsend unavailable.

Periera is a class act. 6 games unbeaten going at 2 points a game cracking start.
Sort the keeper out and I think we could hit automatic spots

Think we have played better this season yet we have scored 3.
The first goal reminiscent of last season fannying about the back. Blackburn second is awful Johnstone flaps one out into the melé. He had a cracking game last week but has been awful today.

Periera really makes things happen- want to see him play with krovonovic.
Furlong looks unplayable at times running from full back.

Next goal key we need it.

I was puzzled for a minute until I looked at the positions of the keys - have you got big fingers like me?  :D
