Always likely to happen Cjay, if we lose either Cooper or Pontus the blame lies firmly with our management for being so naive.
Yep.

Quite like to see Aapo Halme given a chance, looked decent for the u23s.

But Bielsa probably drop your mate to cb which against decent sides would never work.

According to a couple of my pals who regularly watch the U23's, Halme is promising prospect but not ready for first-team football.

And you are right Phillips replacing Jansson is not an ideal scenario, KP is not as commanding in the air so we would certainly have a bigger problem at defending set-pieces

Probably isnt but needs must an all that.

Just have to hope Pontus is ok, as you say Philips or any other 1st team option will make us even more vulnerable at set pieces.

We're vulnerable all over the park mate, Saiz appears to be are only game-changer off the bench, after that you're looking at young Jack

Our back-up right now is average at best

Worryingly Pontus hobbled off at the final whistle, no crowd pleasing moment from the big man as the players were applauded off the pitch

Hopefully nothing too serious. PJ does seem to constantly be picking up knocks and doesn't seem to ever try to hide the fact - when I played as a centreback if I got hurt in the game there was no way I was going to highlight the fact and give the opposition striker the scent of weakness.

Think it was quite genuine this time.

The injury probably occurred having make a desperate challenge due to the players around him constantly giving the ball away putting our defence under unnecessary pressure in the last ten minutes

Brilliant from Pontus

Anybody else think that's risky and not impressive? ...Especially as he doesn't have it under control. Great player Pontus ...don't do it again

Maybe risky

Impressive yes

Class defender who knew what he was doing

Agree with Faaip.

Thought Jansson defended magnificently.

He definitely was playing to the crowd with his flicks and tricks, fair enough.

But that one wasnt under control, he cocked that up and he knew it, just fortunate.

Id rather he saves those till were 3 or 4 up and preferably down the other end.

I'm more concerned about Peacock-Farrell flapping at yet another 25 yard shot

And Ayling clattering a Rovers player unnecessary in our box

Looks great if you get away with it. If he'd have lost the ball and Blackburn scored....

Hardly clattered him from what I saw on telly. It was a silly challenge to make, but tbh I thought it was a dive. No way the amount of contact caused that reaction.

Pontus was at it all afternoon... glad he's confident and enjoying his football, but if he loses the ball there he's left a 1- or 2-on-1 for BPF.

Question: Was Pontus asking the ref to hurry up and get on with the game
or was he asking him if he had seen the Cruyff turn that he had just done???
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Thoroughly deserved (although he asked everyone to vote for King Pablo).
