Amazing how many would play a knackered Charlie Austin, but not Brunt or Barry
I’m pretty consistent ....I’d rather have non of them anywhere near the squad
But
We need to change something...and pretty quick

Another conundrum would be if Austin played, scored twice in the opening 20 mins and then considerably slowed down due to fitness/stamina ....do you then start him next match (in 3 days)?
If youre going to get told off, get told off for doing something not for doing nothing..

We will worry about that when he gets the 2 goals mate.

Yes, but I would take him off after 20 minutes.

Yep, I'd have learned a lesson from the first match. Trusted formula.  ;D

For those wanting Brunt and Barry back in the midfield it’s almost as though the Newcastle game never happened.

Who?
As starters Livermore , Sawyers Krov, Harper ,Perrier’s all better than the pensioners and certainly no worse . Could also tinker e.g play 3 at the back with wing backs or even put Ajayi into holding roll

Whilst I’m not saying they should be starting, we have underused Brunt this season, his set pieces could have been used over the last few weeks to give us more of a threat.

Can we stick to discussing Charlie Austin please. Other players have their own threads.

I really, really like him. He’s last the point in his career where it’s all about him. Just getting subbed off then you can see him gee-ing the lads up really trying to encourage and I think he general demeanour shows it. I bet he is great to have in dressing room.

Unlike him not to take one of those 2 good chances today though

Should have scored at least 1 today. His second chance he showed no composure at all.
And yet when he went off (we had nothing up top)

It really is a miracle we are even within a shout of automatic promotion with the strike force we have
O Albion we love you

Played very well today, missed 1 gilt edged chance while the other was a superb save. Then set up the goal. Nothing up front after he went off.

Was not a superb save at all. Poor effort in my view.

It was as good a save as the one at the other end. Which we are saying is a good save.

Had to score but hit it straight at keeper. He’s our best bet to start without doubt. That however speaks volumes about our issues up front.

Sam did more and had to come out further to make the save.  Austin poked it straight at the keeper.  Put it this way, if you spoke to Charlie, do you think he'll be disappointed at his finish or be like, "what a save?".

All depends on your view, I'm sure Blackburn fans are aayjng their keeper made a good aave and their forward missed.

He was still our best option up top and has played well the last couple of games.

Best of a bad bunch, which is scary.

Was blowing out of his back side after the first 20 mins. Saying that I’d still choose him over Kanu and zohore every time.

Not good enough. Not mobile. No pace. I don’t see that he’s a great finisher at all. Birmingham apart he’s been bang average.

To think Rodriguez got a hard time last year scoring 20+ and contributing far more in open play than Austin, yet Austin seems to get a free pass. The class act is clearly JRod.

Tulloch should be considered before Kanu

You have to be there to miss them. OK, legs may be suffering, but he's still our best bet for goals up front.
