Personally thought we missed him not being in the line up from kick off.


I didn't mate. Thought we were comfortable in the game until the two howlers.

Fair enough, what a pair of howlers they were though.

Thought we were very pedestrian and casual at times giving them too much time and space, especially early on.

Once we went behind then Gibbs's run aside I never really thought we looked like getting anything.

Pity given how early I had to get up to be there the morning after the night before.

Anyway, all of the best to you and the old man for 2019  8) .

Shame if Albion are not appealing the red card, that was never a sending off offence. That game is getting pathetic and the officials are getting worse. Too many namby pambies in the World.

The ref had no choice but to send him off. One look at the Blackburn player lying prostrate & motionless on the ground holding his face told him he must have suffered a lethal assault! Flaming play actors. Should have booked Jake for the arm pull and the Blackburn bloke for simulating serious injury & attempting to get a player sent off!

Any news if Livermore will be fined 2 weeks wages, because whatever play acting the Blackburn player did that was shocking discipline from him.

Jake is another Baggie that divides opinion. A great player he is not but in my view he is having a good season for us in this division. To those who say that he will not be missed can they please confirm who should replace him? No obvious candidates for me.

I don't think he's outstanding in any way but when he hasn't played we've missed him.

Livermore covering ground and closing down next to a more creative player works well.  I thought the combination of Livermore, Phillips and Barry workef really well.

Ask him to be the passing midfielder and in this role he would not be missed.

Extremely lucky not to get sent off again today, then later on his sportsmanship prevented Joe Allen getting a red. Thought he was his usual 4 or 5 out of 10 and would like Harper to take his place going forward. Use him from the bench to shore up games we're winning narrowly.

Thought he was poor today, his touch was awful. Would prefer to play Harper on Tuesday.

He does look slow and cumbersome in possession

Agree he may be useful to help shore up a game - like yesterday.

I’d much rather see Harper or Phillips being used in that third midfield position alongside Barry and Johansen

Until we signed johansen he was probably the only "protector" that we had
It's a funny one, he's never outstanding but when he's not there we miss him
I'd like us to go 442
  Phillips.     Harper/Barry.  Johansen/Livermore    Montero/Murphy
If youre going to get told off, get told off for doing something not for doing nothing..

Do not rate him at all, The man panics as soon as he receives the ball, Turns into the opposition too many times, Just not mobile enough and way over bulked. Harper all day over him but i feel big dave will keep playing Livermore.

His already been banned alot, Should have went yesterday as-well. Liability's don't belong in the team, That's why Brunt belongs nowhere near midfield.

Go back to the start of the thread to see my opinions on him and nothing has changed really, he is an extremely limited footballer, you coulod see that from the outset, but is a handy squad player for this level to come in and 'do a job'. If everyone were fit and available, my midfield three pecking order would be:

Starters
Phillips
Barry
Johansen

Remainder in order
Harper
Livermore
Field
Myhill
Brunt

I'm excluding Morrison entirely because, sadly, he is done as a footballer now. The decision to sign him up again looks more and more ludicrous by the day

Myhill in midfield? I'd love to see that as long as he was playing for the opposing team.  ;D

Despite his limitations in most of the games he has been suspended we have missed him, only times we didn't was when Field and Harper were alongside Barry.

I thought he played well first half vs Brighton when he played in the Barry role, ie - in front of the defence. He got the ball and passed it well, however he isnt as good as Barry in that role and i would think Field is next in that role in league games if Barry cant play

He did look off the pace yesterday as the tempo was quicker than the fa cup and he is a big powerful lad anyway so i would imagine he needs a couple of games to get upto speed which is why he cant afford to keep getting bans!

For a long time he was our legs in midfield but he does seem to be bulking up more and with the emergence of Harper and signing Johansen we arent as reliant on him as we was but we do seem to do better this season when he plays.

I don't expect us to have Barry next year, and I think and hope Brunt and Morrison are more or less finished now (with all due respect to a decade's fine contribution from each) so I would say he can keep on doing a solid if unspectacular job for us in either the champ or the Prem.  If Field, Harper and others are going to come through, we will need someone with a presence on the pitch who's been there and done it.

What you’re trying to say is that we dont miss Livermore when we play round pegs in round holes !

Won't hear a bad word said about Brunt in centre midfield after watching this guys attempt at the pivot tonight. Absolutely embarrassing, he's got multiple England caps,  one of the worst performances I've ever seen from an Albion player.
