Wasteful. Our final ball is so poor and we have nothing up top. I thought the subs killed us today. Livermore off for Harper especially and Grosicki was looking dangerous .

That last 20 minutes was bloody awful should have been out of sight. Brentford won’t stop winning we have to beat an in form Fulham team Tuesday don’t think we are going to do it.

Bottled that again. Never seem to be able to win the big games when we need to.

I’m sorry Slav but the subs changed the game today. Finished the game with no strikers, no central midfield and we’ve somehow not ended up with the 3 points.

Lost our buffer to third now as there’s only a game in it. Can’t afford to lose a game now. 2 wins and a draw needed.

Oh if only we had a 20 goal a season striker we'd have inebriated this league.

If we had a proper first team striker (Gayle, Rodriguez) we’d be 10 points clear of this league

We can afford 2 draws. This was one of them.

Be back later when I've calmed down.

But I will say, I don't want to hear about Townsend, Bartley or Kanu as the best players in their positions ever again. Awful performances.

Well done Sam Johnstone.

No idea how we didn't win that, created enough chances to score a hat full.

We let them back into it once Livermore went off.  HRK, it was utterly pointless having him on the pitch.  I think I'd rather we went down to 10 men as we at least wouldn't try passing it to him then.

Looking back at the result, we were lucky to come away with a draw considering they had the best chances late on.

I'm not going to moan, this is the Albion ffs, when youve supported them for 50 years you know they don't make things easy! Main thing is it's still in our own hands 7 points required, can we afford to draw with Fulham and win the last 2? Wouldn't put it past Swansea to beat Leeds, tin hat on time, 3 to go!

Like him or not without Sam Johnstone’s late save we would have lost that today.

Pathetic.

Enough chances to win 5 games today, been the same most the season, just can’t seem to finish games off.

End up needing Johnstone to rescue a point.

Fulham game is massive now. If we lose then it’s playoffs, I feel today’s draw will knock the players a lot, the pressure might be too much.

Thankfully we didnt lose that game which we could've done at the end. Bilic's substitutions completely wrecked our impetuous. Why he took Grosicky off I don't know.

We should have had that game won long before they scored, some of the chances we missed were ridiculous, should've been two or three ahead comfortably.

It was critical to hold on for the point though because we go into the last three games knowing we can afford to draw one as long as we win the other two and no one can catch us.

It might not seem like it now but that point could turn out to be massive.

You just can't waste so many chances in such kind of vital moment.

Subs changed the game, They made 4 at the same time. Was effective, HRK came on and offered nothing. Sam kept us in it, But Austin should have scored.

Cannot lose to Fulham now, It's a must not lose game, If we do then Brentford will replace us with better goal difference. And they will win every game they have left.

So many chances missed. To only score one was criminal.

Austin: Two great chances, should have scored at least one of them.
Livermore: Should have scored in the first half, wasted massive opportunity
Krov: Missed a sitter, off the post at the start of the second, another huge wasted opportunity to go 0-2. He then didn't bother tracking back for their equaliser! I'm fuming with him.
Diangana: Got the ball in countless good position and constantly made a mess of it, rubbish today
HRK: Not a goal threat.

That was a shambles. Far too wasteful in attack and played like we have already won the game in the second half, which led to a really soft equaliser when we done on the counter attack with all of our midfield stood on the half-way line watching.

SJ: Great save for stop Blackburn winning it 2-1, which would have been totally undeserved.

We fell apart when Austin & Livermore went off. Harper looked useless.

Sawyers needs a rocket up his backside, plays the game at such a slow tempo, looks like he's stoned half the time.

3 wins in 6 games since resumption - not enough when the team behind you keeps winning.

The margin for error is really small now - we can’t afford to lose another game, and we need to win at least two of the three, and draw the other.

Brentford show no signs of slipping, but it’s a relentless league - you never know what might happen.

If we get overtaken Brentford will have deserved it and we won’t have been good enough.

Kanu, Harper, Townsend and Bartley shouldn’t be anywhere near a starting place again this season.

So down heartened I think we have blown it personally. Can't see us going undefeated now or getting 7 points from 3. Bartley Diangana Ajayi Townsend Harper embarrassing.

Hopefully Slav can now see the folly of putting HRK on ..he offers absolutely nothing to the side..Austin may have been tiring but would still have offered far more if he had stayed on..

Should have won that at a canter but missed some really good chances, Austin especially but also Livermore, Krovinovic, Diangana.
HRK offered nothing when he came on and when Livermore went off we lost the midfield. Harper really poor again.
Sam Johnstone kept us in it thankfully.

If we'd have kept Grosicki and Livermore on we'd have won that.

It has worried me all season that we don’t have a number 9 worthy of the name. HRK I have never rated. Earlier this season however I was happy to eat humble pie in large doses. Sadly he has now reverted to type. Austin is a better bet but looks knackered as the game progresses. He also should have scored 2 today. Very frustrating.

Should have won it well before Bilic made the substitutions, always thought we would be the first to drop points, Pereira though is on another level, Bartley should have took one for the team to stop Gallagher, as Jacko said we could afford two draws, it’s still in our hands..!!
