Gutted. Tino had a poor game today. Finish off some of those glorious chances and we are home and dry. Very disappointing result.

Groundhog Day. Boring and predictable. We've come through a period of winnable games with too few PTS. Can't see where a win is going to come from for the rest of this calendar year. Wolves didn't do so bad against an 'on fire' Liverpool today.
The Armstrong situation is odd and it's looking like there's a big issue with him. It's seems Ralph doesnt like players to be better at their jobs than Ralph is as his.
This game reminded me of the forest game just before Christmas 2008 ? where we lost 0-2 and was the clear indicator that the season would end in relegation as it did to league 1.
Not gutted today just BAU under the current regime.

Thought Tino played pretty well today, Redland's decision making was as bad as ever and he lost the ball all over the park. But Romeu's foul in front of the box is what lost us the game. We were the better team and nearly everyone put in a strong performance. We need to close a game down and to lose in the last 4 minutes is gutting.

Ahead of the game, I could have bet my mortgage on that result - and Saints scoring first , missing opportunities and then succumbing to a late equalizer. The report would consider the first 85 minutes or so as a success - team played well and there were few if any underperformers, though Lyanco looks like an accident waiting to happen, strong but lacking composure. The last 15 minutes were a disaster, poor game management typified by two howlers by JWP the misplaced pass and then standing on the goal line for that late free kick. Need to learn to play keep ball against 10 men, surely!

Another 2 point lost this time it was captain crap Prowse that lost us the points!

Romeu gave the free kick away and WP played two of their strikers onside. Pitiful from the two worst players in the Prem.

According to Ralph, McCarthy picked up a hamstring injury in the second half (bringing on Lewis probably not a good idea). I imagine that's why JWP was on the line for the free kick.

Once again we fall apart in the second half. How do we control and maintain possession in the first half and then be seemingly unable to not give the ball away or know how to get in position in defence, for the last third of the game.
As I understand it McCarthy was injured at the end, perhaps that explains JWP's seemingly mad move. Lyanco needs to calm down. Tino needs a rest, KWP needs to play on the right and we need someone on the field to shout louder than Ralph.
Tella was a bright spark, Redmond got his assist and Broja showed composure. Could do with a bit more end product tho.
A point isn't a disaster but unless lessons are being learned it's going to be very tense later on this season.

UGH!! - So pissed off at JWP right now. HE lost us this game with that ridiculous pass to the midfield instead of heaving it down field , which led to them getting a free kick. The he decides to run back to the goal line for whatever reason. As McCarthy (we now know) was injured, he should have started on the line and the moved forward quickly when the wall blocked the shot, then Maupay would have been off sides for sure. How do we we keep doing this to ourselves?? It is so frustrating and the players dont seem to learn. We are making basic mistakes that are taught to kids and these errors are costing us games/points.

Just a welly upfield away from 3 points!!!!
We were happy to sit on a 1-0 score line and were content not to take a chance round there box. Yet continued to take chances around our own. Total domination of a game that ended up 1-1 and its difficult to comprehend!
Livramento had a poor game and desperately needs a break to recharge, JWP is nowhere near last seasons form and we have developed a habit of sloppy passing, which shatters some excellent work.
We have just drawn a game that should have been closed out earlier and we have again been punished for not pressing our superior play when we are on top and thinking we could just hold onto the ball and see the game out.
