Don't care how old he is. Has to do better there.

Quite. Just needed to touch it. Proper striker up the other end just finished it

27
Chance for Rogers there. Just needed to get anything on that

28
And why have we put Rogers on the corners? Could have done with a decent delivery there

29
Sadly we care more about promotion than a cup run. Especially with this year without a number of premier league teams left.

The commentators are banging on about how unlucky we are and how Moore must be gutted. I bet he's loving not having the cup to worry about now.

We'd better win on Saturday now after resting for that game or I'm not going to be pleased at all.

Will we ever have a season again where going for a cup is an objective?

30
There it is then. Bartley is such a thick footballer. Cost us the game by himself tonight

31
Total wasted chance this. Shocking game management with that Morgan Rogers substitution.

Complete backs to the wall now.

Yep, we're not going to have any of the ball at all now.

I think that Rogers change was lined up after we'd scored and were winning and wasn't changed for some reason after Brighton scored.

On the other hand, Murray coming on now..

32
Great to see just how far Field and Harper have come, they look so calm and assured. You wouldn't think it was Harpers fifth(?) Game for us.

Yep, strange that they seem so assured and more like 'senior' players than some of the other fringe players

This f****n goal keeper. Dreadful.

Brilliant. I’m not there today, what happened?

35
Anyone know when the fixture date and time is to be confirmed? Still says on the website that it's subject to change due to TV. Seeing as there's only 4 replays there's a chance we could be picked for a TV slot if they're showing the games. Would be good to know before confirming my season ticket seat since I can't go on Wednesday.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Harvey Barnes (on loan from Leicester)

If you take out the goals scored/Assists and pens won by both Barnes/Gayle it accounts for over half our 54 goals. Be proper lower half table if we didn't have those two first half of the season. Relying on HRK to score now is abysmal, Along with relying on 30+ ageing players to fill the gap.

Hope the lad does great at Leicester.

Thing is though is we’re not lower mid table, and we did have them on loan so we’re where we are. It’s like people say about Kane, that if you take his penalties and tap ins out then he’s an average striker. Thing is he has scored the penalties and the tap ins and he is where he is too.

You could say that about permanent signings too that get bought by other clubs at the end of the season. If we had Barnes on a permanent and lit the division on fire this season, who’s to say someone in the prem doesn’t come along in the summer and take him off is anyway.

We obviously had the motive to get promoted this year and we’ve filled the team with players to achieve that. If we go up we’d have to strengthen again regardless so don’t really see the issue with using loan players.

You might have to check that it doesn’t determine which country you are in by the payment method. For example it may treat you as a UK customer if you pay with a uk registered card. I’m not 100% though but I’m sure I heard someone mention that

We’d also lose a season or so of the entire Halfords stand if we were to redevelop it, meaning if we did it after getting promoted we’d lose the whole stand of attendees. What  happens if we go straight back down again? We’d be left with a nice shiny new half empty stand.

Plus if we get promoted we really need to spend on the squad. Look at all the other teams that have spent money on their stadiums recently, usually followed by a lean year of signings to balance the books.

Plus correct me if I’m wrong, but I doubt our owner has any experience in building projects in the UK. And it’s not like he can fly hundreds of builders over at the drop of a hat or that building regs are similar between the two countries.

Still confident about this one. They’ve been on an awful run lately and I don’t personally think they’re a very good team anyway. 2-0 Albion to put us 2nd

People seem to have forgotten about our latest defensive signing,Mr. Holgate.
I've said previously that he could be a significant signing.
I think that Dave will play a 433 today.
Holgate Dawson Hegazi Gibbs, I believe that we will begin to have more clean sheets in the knowledge that jrod and Gayle will always score I would play leko with them up front.
Barry  Harper mozza as central 3
I think that team would beat most teams in this league including Norwich.
What do you think?

Agree about Holgate. In the cup he looked very assured at the back and got forward well, which will aid our attacks down the right hand side.

The main thing that annoys me is the timing of all this. He's not going to play for Leicester this weekend so couldn't it have waited until after the Norwich game? Don't understand it at all.

I was impressed too. Seemed to have a confidence about him which rubbed off on the rest of the players and meant they weren't scared to pass it back to him under pressure. His distribution was excellent too.

Why would we expand the stadium when we can’t fill it as it is? Grabs popcorn

Thought he got the balance of youth and experience bang on today and will have benefited greatly from seeing a number of the fringe players play.

In my opinion I’d like to see more of Harper and potentially Edwards around the first team.

Will also be interesting to see what the defence looks like against Norwich as Holgate was good at right back today, as was Tosin in the middle.

Agree with the above, MOTM for me today without a doubt.

He looked strong, energetic, good on the ball. Id like to see him given more first team chances after watching him today.

Yep, doesn’t seem to tire and I’m never nervous when he had the ball which says a lot. He’s not scared to put his foot in either

Seems to have put on a bit of timber since the last time I saw him play. Agree the Harper seems the better of the two

Let’s be honest, he’s not impressed here and isn’t going to get any more chances in the team. So a loan move is best for both parties. If he does well he’s putting himself in the shop window for a summer move

Said it in the after match thread and say it after every game I see him play, he looks a real talent and oozes composure and confidence for a youngster. May see him slot in the first team whilst Livermore is suspended on the back of another excellent performance today. Man of the match for me

Good game overall, enjoyed that. We’ve got some good kids in the squad and it’s good for them to get a run out.

Every time I see Harper play I’m impressed with him, and he was my man of the match again today. Won the majority of things in the middle, great passing and energy.

Leko has his moments but clearly isn’t the finished product. Needs a loan somewhere to get some experience of playing in a first team.

Field was steady and kept things ticking over.

The keeper Bond seemed confident and his kicking was very good. Made a good save in the first half too.

Edwards also looks to have potential and held the ball up well after he came on.

Brunt and Hoolahan both quieter in the second half but did what was needed.

Thought Tosin looked much more assured not at right back, however I think Holgate will be taking the right back position anyway, so Tosin is likely to be backup to Hegazi and Dawson now.

Wigan were very poor and offered nothing for 89 minutes of the game, but we were professional and could have won by 3 if we finished a bit better.

On to the next round and hopefully a decent draw.

On to the negatives, Townsend wasn’t great in my opinion and we probably won’t see much of him this season. Sako, even though he scored was poor. Needed taking off as he couldn’t even control the ball by the end. The goal was lucky that it ended up even going in.

Completely controlled the first half. Good mix of youth and experience, Brunt and Hoolahan running the show. Harper pick of the youngsters for me.

Sako has been pretty poor, even his goal he did well to give the keeper a chance. Holgate looks a prospect at right back, although Wigan have been pretty woeful.
