Oh dear... So many things not right:
- Rs off the pace from the start and never looked comfortable
- Failed to press WBA's defence or midfield
- Too many sloppy passes, giving ball away needlessly
- Lumley's distribution even worse than usual, but partially redeemed himself with some smart saves
- Barbet cannot play with just 1 central defender alongside; 2 penalties + 1 red card the evidence
- Unusually Warburton was slow to make changes when it was clear we were being overrun and needed more beef in midfield, Chair + Eze just not robust enough against this class of opposition
- Far too often Rs lost out in 1:1 challenges; WBA pressed + tackled much better; the team need intensive sessions on how to tackle/resist challenges
- Ref was awful - 21:10 foul count bizarre in a clean game; Rs got almost nothing from him, although when we did win a decision we usually wasted it
- Albion were good without being over-impressive; look certs for promotion
- Perhaps this defeat is helpful to bring us back down to earth after that winning run - but there's still a lot of potential in this team
- Best players today were Leistner + Chair

Teams more or less cancelled each other out in the first half although we often lost/gave away the ball in dangerous positions. Anyway neither goalkeeper had to make a save although West Brom had a couple of dangerous corners which we dealt with ok.
Second half we had a good first couple of minutes but then the midfield just melted away and West Brom looked more and more dangerous.
From where I was sitting bot goals looked saveable!
To be fair Lumley did make a couple of decent saves but I thought he looked very nervy.

Totally agree with Geoff78, every point tallies with my impression of the game. Warburton reckons we showed too much respect; I felt we didn't show enough and believed the hype following our recent run of good results. Too much tippy-tappy, fancy-Dan football when we should have been grafting like Albion, who were not only skilful but played like they really wanted it.
