I’d have been disappoint if Johnstone had been beaten by a strike like his today but it was a decent performance. Over shadowed by a good number of others mind.

I agree with you and I’m not sure he has warranted some of the criticism he has received.

He is not going to operate the channels but if we can play into him then we have someone who can hold the ball and bring the others into play

He’s missed some very good chances - of that there is no doubt - but it did not warrant some of the comparisons that have been drawn when you consider his all round game.

For the money we had available, he has been a good signing. We were not going to sign any better in my opinion

made to look much better by having Periera buzzing around him. Hope to see more of this, but suspect MP will be shoved out wide again ?! :-X

I think it caught the keeper off guard, but it wasn’t right in the corner and it looks to me like the keeper could of got to it. Keeper seems to throw his legs out left rather than dive right.

I found myself in the same position at football on Wednesday night and his finish was reminiscent of mine. Outcome was the same too, keeper coukdnt get to it. Good finish!  :P

I don’t think we will see Pereira wide again in a hurry..

Pereira is probably best up front alongside Diagne at the moment. Keeps him central without compromising the midfield and allows him the freedom to drop deeper or pull wide. Trouble is we usually line up 4-1-4-1.

They did come and scout me and 1 or 2 others as a kid in the county finals (i had a decent rep) but i had an absolute shocker! Fell apart mentally knowing i was being watched, didn't play competively for about 14 years after that so now i stick to moaning on here  ;D

How many goals has he really scored as opposed to the "stats"?!

By my count 2 actual goals, 2 wrongfully disallowed and 2 correctly disallowed.

Up till about a week ago we'd produced nothing for our strikers to work with. I've always thought Callum was a good signing, but people were calling him cr** too and he's obviously not.

If it were affordable i'd have Diagne for next season
Whenever things look bad, remember the Port Vale, Grimsby and Walsall days... not so bad now, eh?!

Great performance, worried Vestergaard and Bednarek to death.

Heavily involved in the first two and played a big part in the 3rd in terms of occupying their defence to create the space in behind.

Gutted for him that he has had a legit goal stolen but deserves a lot of praise for his overall performance.

His goals scored stats probably don't even tell half the story of his impact.

Can't criticise him for his effort, but he should have a done a lot better with that chance with only the keeper to beat. It was nowhere near the target.

He’s very useful in the final third. That’ll do me.

Hes had one wrongfully disallowed. He assisted the second and he wins the flick that directly leads to us winning penalty.

Contribution cant be faulted just needs to add more goals for himself. Some point they will flood in. Hopefully v the villa

I hope we can get this guy in perm, we look so much more threatening in the final third with this guy on pitch.

Won a crucial header for the build up to pen, then an amazing pass to Phillips.

He is a great outlet and his hold up play is fantastic.

If he can start burying the easier chances he will be magnificent  ;D

His general play is good, his final ball is often excellent, his work-rate can't be faulted, he has made chances for himself and others and he has actually put the ball in the net -what - 4 or 5 times, with only a couple counting, the others very marginal if possibly correctly discounted, and the one last night a blatant bit of K Friendliness. Just a little bit more steadiness when a chance occurs and he will be the real deal. We really do need to get him on a permanent contract, he will be a key player for us.

That was an exceptionally poor effort.

I’ve said it since he first appeared in a Baggies shirt - Mybaye Diagne is not a natural goal scorer.
He does hold the ball and pass it on pretty well as he did for Matt Phillips’ goal and scares defenders to death but, he will never be a goal poacher in the Kevin Philips or Dwight Gayle mode.

Against lesser Championship opposition he mare fare better if we still have him but not in the Premier League as has been amply demonstrated with his easy clear missed chances.
