Walcott was poor. Ineffectual in attack and no defensive cover. I know he is available on a free in the summer but unless he is taking a significant pay cut I would like the limited resources invested elsewhere.

Walcott was ineffectual and repeatedly gave up the ball at the first challenge.
The formation looked good with KWP acting as a winger in attack and then dropping back into a back 4 when needed.
Defence was okay but it is easy to spot the errors that led to the two goals. I would have like to see Salisu at some point.
Tella was good. Obafemi was good.
As we have all been saying for too long we need a leader on the park to make us more solid and a cool head up front to convert chances.

Totally agree on Walcott, he offers little in terms of improving what we have and although he is on a free his wages are substantial. I also believe that Tella shows we have talent in our youngsters.
Who else could shine given a chance. We paid big money, by our standards, for Diallo who doesn't look like a PL player at present & Djenepo still doesn't look like a PL player. My point is we are spending big money on players from sub-standard leagues but not giving our home grown a chance.
Very slight rant over COYR

These types of matches, like the recent Spuds one, are difficult to access because the "Big Six" team were not playing well. Newcastle managed the late equalizer at Anfield, we did not. We looked good going forward and defended well apart from the first goal where Stephens headed weakly and then ambled across with no real intent to stop the cross. FF played well but if you look at where Mane was could he not have come out for the cross?
So, not for the first time, encouraging in parts, great chances missed, one or two lapses in an otherwise decent defensive performance and no points. If Fulham get at least a point tomorrow the Palace game suddenly has more significance than we want it to have. I don't want to have to cheer on Manure against Fulham in a couple of weeks.

Why was Salisu not playing instead of Stephens? Salisu is faster and reads the game better than Stephens.
Salah gave Stephens the run around all night and the first goal was caused by him not cutting out the cross.

At a time when Ralph is quoting max. £10 million for new signings, being on a free, his cost would be £ 0 million and a 2 year contract would be about the limit when you consider we still have Shane Long on the books at age 35.

Ralph Hassenaclue manages a loss against a s**t Liverpool team and a draw with 10 men against a decent side. Only the wonderful Ralphy could do that.
