Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It’s only painful to others.

The same applies, when you are stupid

Finally saw the highlights on MOTD today, I know it’s hard to tell from a short bit of tv, but seemed to me that having an energetic out and out wide man like Edwards in front of him, made a difference for him defensively and attacking wise. Wasn’t as exposed as he was against Stoke.

Finally plays well and Bilic still has the strength to drop him. One swallow doesn't make a summer and i'm glad Bilic did that. 4 academy lads start - people want to see a message to youngsters and a pathway given - well there ya go. 3 starters that have came straight through the academy to the first team (via the odd loan).

I said in the systems/personnel topic that i was wrong on this one. The two right-footers on the left side was one of many things wrong tonight, not that Fergie played bad but there's just no balance, less direct.

I cannot get my head around some of the decision making ...
Furlong playing well dropped, in favour of a CB to play at rb
Townsend played well and scored, then dropped, in favour of a right footed CB to play at LB ....who had been bombed out of the side

In fairness to Bilic, as I am very reluctant to defend him tonight, I think he played two centre backs at full back to combat their set pieces. Worked wonders as we conceded from two set pieces, the first goal was an absolute shambles and they had other opportunities from their long throws. As I was watching I knew eventually they'd score from one, it was inevitable, we just cannot defend.

Played well but you’ve got to look who he is against.

Deserves to keep his place but you know exactly what Millwall are doing next Sunday: Big Matt Smith with big diagonals aimed at Connor. I hope we have a plan to combat it; put it that way.

He had a good game yesterday but let’s face it, Luton are a league one side...

He is not good enough for where we are planning to go - I have also have concerns against when we play the better sides in this division.

You would expect all our players to look a class above then wouldn't you? Townsend played well at West Ham as well, another league one side ...... oh, wait!

Weak argument.

Played very well at West Ham , played well x 2 at Charlton . When he has a bad game it does tend to be a stinker but overall right now he's doing a job and deserves that shirt.

Yes, I would do.

They posed very little threat on the left hand side which made it a comfortable afternoon for him. He was tidy with possession. Nothing outstanding.

I’m glad he had a good game against West Ham.

He’s an okay full back - nothing more. And one like a few within this club, aren’t good enough for where we are planning to go.

For Conor Townsend read Sam Johnstone and Charlie Austin

You are not allowed to give any form of critic without some form of backlash .
All in all he is probably our third choice at LB , I am not expecting the third choice LB for any team in the champ to be Roberto Carlos , I’m also not expecting any of them to be good enough for the prem.
He’s had some good games, he’s had some v bad games....not his fault but he will simply not be good enough if we go up .

Also when he came on against Leeds, or is that another weak team

He's had a couple of decent games but he clearly has deficiencies in his game and probably shouldn't be a regular in a side at this level chasing promotion. As backup he's probably alright for now.

I think he is really improving, should keep the shirt, Gibbs needs to win it back, not given it.

Excellent performance today. Really pleased for the lad.

No moaning, just gets on with it and puts 100% in. Didn't shirk a challenge and rarely gave the ball away.

Makes a massive difference whether the player in front  of him can keep the ball and also whether they work back.

Gave the ball away the first 3 or 4 times he had it. Solid thereafter. Decent showing but Gibbs won't be losing any sleep.

Gave the ball away the first 3 or 4 times? I don' recall that.

Recorded the game, so when get back, will check.
