My main gripe is that we clearly played the wrong personnel for too long but some of you lot refuse to see it. 

I'm suck to death of Swansea and Stoke references, who cares about them.

It's gone so it's time to park it and look forward.  We can only change the present and future.

It's important we re-focus on the squad and what it looks like come 1 Feb.  The transfer window is the most important thing for this club now.

For instance if we lose Hegazi, Barnes and Phillips then I'd take 6th all day long.
If another member chooses to reference another club thats up to them , its a forum for all within reason of course.

The bloody problem is having too many players and keeping them happy.  Do u really want 15/20 knocking Big Dave's door every week?  I've already mentioned selection issues the problem will be highlighted twofold.

I don’t think that is our problem at all.

I agree the problem isn’t numbers it’s depth of quality particularly in certain positions

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.

In my opinion, because Darren was an understudy to Pulis, he won't use our youth and prefers old men to play. Pulis has rubbed off onto him.

you mean the Pulis who used both Feild and Leko? Overall I’d agree he doesn’t like youth but he did to an ok degree while here.

Masterstroke from Darren akin to Leeds imo. His hand has been forced by injuries to Phillips and Morrison but he has gone with Rekeem who now lives and dies by his performance. Very pleased.

No Albion fan can comprehend playing 37 and 34 year olds for 90 mins when we have replacements on the bench.

Fail to win at Bolton then play offs is all we can hope for.

Manager needs changing, players need buying. Unfortunately we have an owner with no interest so nothing changes

This is the problem with owners who know jack about football but have lots of money. They don't want to invest, it's just about turnover.

Darren won't last long if he keeps failing to make subs. I question his ability to make key decisions. He seems like a nice guy, and nice guys finish last. He blathers on about a tough, busy schedule, but doesn't make use of subs.

And considering he was a defender himself, our defence is shocking. Usually the position the coach played in is the first to be improved. The reason you don't see a great number of GKs in management positions.

If you like watching the Championships best striker playing left wing then fair enough, keep him. It’s criminal.

HRK/Jrod but especially HRK offer very little goal threat, Take Jrods pens away and his not even double figures, Let alone he just runs around and less said about HRK's goal record the better, I said before the game Barnes/Gayle was carrying us. Now we have only Gayle and he plays out wide!

Big Dave too nice and will babble on about learning and improving while analysing the game etc. Make subs earlier, Used to drive me mad under Roy aswell.

I just find this view to be ridiculous. Philips is more important than both. JROD has had an excellent season and performs an important role. Barry has stepped up and looks a different class in midfield. Also with the signing of Holgate we now arguably have the best back four in the division. Johnstone may be no Foster but he is as good as any keeper in this league. Despite losing both Barnes and Philips and with other injuries/suspensions we were still unfortunate not to beat the team who before today were second in the league. We're not being carried by two players by any means, we are one of the top sides in the division.

Matt Wilson asked him about lack of subs, Moore's response: "Hindsight is a great thing".

Doesn't help himself does he? I can see it in real time, why can't he? Why can he only see it with hindsight when it's his job? I saw it against Brentford as well, we were desperate for a sub, Mozza could barely move and it ends up costing us. I said it would be his downfall on here after that game and nothing has changed.

It's why I don't think he's going to make it in the long run, I've seen too many characteristics ingrained in his management style that are holding us back. The 3 teams above us have worse squads, but far better head coaches who utilise everything at their disposal to get results.

Bench is terrible, he has no real quality options.

I depth of squad is not great, despite what most think.

There was literally no one on the bench to bring on to sure up the midfield (and keep control better than Barry and Brunt were).


Lack of subs didn't cost us today. A silly forwards tackle and numerous missed chances did.

I tend to agree with you that we were limited with our options today.

At the time I thought Johnstone should've stopped the goal but need to see it back first to confirm that. Dunno how you saw it?

Couldn't tell, I was right behind the Norwich dugout. We cleared the first cross and then switched off. I'll come back to you after I've seen a replay.  :D


edit. No, Johnstone not to blame, defenders all switched off.

To put Darren's reign in context: nominated for Manager of the Month in 4 of 6 months he's been eligible for it (Premier League AND Championship). Beaten Pochettino, Mourinho, Benitez, Bielsa; drawn with Klopp. Had the spine of his team removed: Foster, Evans, Krychowiak, Rondon. Given precious little money to replace them approx £8 million. Far more competitive than Stoke and Swansea, top scorers and best goal difference in the division, decent passing football, cemented in the play off places and 3 points off the auto's with plenty of games left to play. Shrewd operator in the loan market. Restorer of pride.


Cheers Darren, long may you reign.
