Keeper needs to do better for both of their goals in my opinion

Any one got a link to the sky highlights yet?
COYB

Just posted them in the match thread.

I hope you're right - hopefully our new Technical Director broadens our recruitment.

I am right, we’re currnetly top and winning.

Not really- it was our short-termist recruitment of the last few years that just got us relegated.

Yes but that’s the past now. We’re currently winning and top of the league without using the ‘youngsters’ yet (I’m sure as the season goes on we will use them, like normal teams do), and playing our tried and tested players.

I have - I'm watching it. Good cross by Livermore and header into the top corner by Rodriguez.

None of that changes the fact our recruitment has become amateur, and Moore's team-selection is biased towards his mates (Mears) and the senior pro's (Barry) at the expense of giving younger players a chance (Field).

It's been our recruitment (of players and head coaches) over the past few years that got us relegated in the first place, and unless this changes, we'll end up a mid-table championship club in the long-term.

Seems to be working though doesn’t it. Joint top without Field playing.

thought the 1st goal was a fantastic strike, however the more I watch it the more I think why was Myhill so far of his line.

Yes watching it live I thought the same. It goes in the bottom corner pretty much

Watching it back, all 3 goals are comical

What an awful performance and a poor game on the whole. Just got home and massively regretting the 3 hour drive straight from work to stand in the cold to watch that rubbish. Judging by the masses of empty seats, obviously everyone else got the memo and decided against going, which I will be doing for the remaining cup games this season as we're clearly not taking them seriously still. What's the point?

The majority of that team tonight (bar Hegazi, Brunt and potentially Field) should be nowhere near our starting 11 this season. Still can't believe we've let a Palace reserve team comprehensively beat us 3-0 at home.

Special shout outs to:

Myhill who again didn't look up for it, and I felt reacted poorly to their first goal and was then shaky for the majority of the game. Why did we release him and then sign him back again?

Townsend is a poor player. Didn't beat his man once, constantly turning back. Don't think he got a cross past the first man once the entire evening.

Adarbayo (sp) gave the ball away every time he touched it as did Harper. Was Mears on the pitch?

HRK still isn't a striker, and Morrison whilst having some nice touches, still didn't look match fit and chose the wrong decision most of the time.

Strange management tonight too, not sure what was the point of picking a few random youngsters mixed with ridiculously old legs in random positions with pretty much no starting 11 players; really not sure what Moore expected to happen there.  Like for like subs too which didn't have any impact on the game again. And why oh why did we persist on trying to cross the ball in to HRK and Hoolahan the entire game? If we did manage to beat the first man neither had a chance of winning a header. Kept resorting to hoofing it forwards too to HRK who isn't a target man.

Disappointed and annoyed at yet another wasted chance to progress in a cup competition.

I think again we’ll have to come to terms with the fact that he’s not ours and will be going back to his parent club. That is the reason players get loaned out at the end of the day

Think he got it spot on today, sometimes he's been deserved of criticism but today was probably our best win of the season after QPR with regards to how professional it was.

Not only today, last game was bang on too. I’m very happy so far.

Deserved that after a much better second half.

Hegazi was arguably our best player - a much improved performance from him.

Gayle just seems to have that knack of 'making the difference'.

Really enjoyed Hoolohan's cameo. See him start against Palace with some of the kids around him.

Only major gripe was Milwall's gamesmanship and how often they were getting away time time wasting, feigning injury and other bits and pieces. None of the management on the sideline, nor Brunt or any other senior players, were pressuring the ref and this made it much easier for them to get away from it.

To be fair that was us last season, and the seasons before. Always backfires when you have an awful defence. We were holding on to the ball when we could after we got our goals. One thing that annoyed me was that there was only 1 minute of added time in the first half despite the ref pointing to his watch every time their keeper had the ball, and also how every time one of their players went down when we had the ball we ended up having to stop play.

A striker like Dwight is what we’ve been missing the last few seasons. Wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up championship top scorer again. Seems to have a really good attitude as well, always giving 100%

Been saying for weeks we have to careful with Phillips god I hope it's nothin serious. That's the only big negative from today

To be honest I don’t think today was one of his better days. Couldn’t beat his man and every cross from him was poor. Scored twice with him off the pitch, with the first goal coming from brunt taking the corner on Phillips side after he’d been subbed.

Excellent performance, better than them in every department. Deserved the 2-0 result. Will be surprised if they stay up, they were pretty poor

Nah my vote goes to Johnston , they should have been well up

To be fair, I'd expect him to make all of the saves he's made tonight. Barnes has been the match winner for me
