well that was a massive reality check . found wanting all over the park tonight. .
the brutal truth is that this squad is no where good enough .
Bpf is not a first choice championship keeper .
Harrison is s**t. citeh must have something on us regarding his appearances and
alioski is As much use as a f**king chocolate fireguard.
must add in jan otherwise its yet another year in the championship.

It seems that either this league is crap or our coach is great, because we have been challenging for the top spot all season despite all those allegedly decidedly average players that we have.

Tbf Paddy, they didn't gloat, as they knew they'd get a punch but could feel their joy, matched my despair.. they've had an invite for the return.

Hernandez then Pontus got the majority of votes.

Personally thought Pablo was poor

Jansson my MOTM by a mile even though he was part of a defence that conceded four
Pablo was very poor till he scored, which goes to show the quality of opinion on the coach..Sorry

PJ comfortably MOTM
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

We can't keep thinking Harrison will bring any benefit to the team !

Glad you used the word allegedly, they're not of course.

Both without a doubt. This has been coming for weeks. Struggled in all the last few matches bar Ipswich so its no great surprise when coming up against an ex PL team that we'd get a pasting . This wouldn't have happened in the first month of the season but wiser/classier teams will be superior and unfortunately this result is probably the first of a couple more pastings on the horizon. I think Leeds will just about make playoffs given that most teams aren't that great and therefore it doesn't need much to get a point or 3 from them but they need to improve and fast.

Well that was a slap in the face!! Regroup and move on. Ref gives us a pen and we go 2-1 instead of 2-1 down, sport is cruel at times.

I said it before, if BPF was Italian or German and not from our youth set up our fans would be screaming to not play him.

Turned telly off at 3-0 - couldn’t bear to watch anymore. The action that I did see makes my belief in these 3 things even stronger. BPF and Dallas aren’t up to it and Saiz has to start . Only positive of the day at least Wales won the rugby. ( I know that brightens the day for a few on here )

Just what I said earlier (sort of). Why weren't we in our dark blue away kit? Utter shambles!

Even though he was at fault for 2 of them ?

I can't believe the good press that Pontus is getting on here. I know that we are struggling for a MOM, but Pontus was only worthy of a 5/10.

Because WBA play in blue and white stripes.

I'll give you one of them

We totally lost our shape once the subs were made, we were stretched all over the park, because we haven't a proper right-wing back Pontus was dragged out of the middle covering for the inept Dallas, taking Douglas off didn't help making our defence look even more lob-sided, Cooper was constantly out of position, unsure where Phillips was at the end

Jansson was like a one man defence having to cover all angles for the last 20 minutes, overall he was still our best player who made less errors than the rest of the team

We were poor today, but one shambles of a performance doesn't make us a bad side. We started the day top of the table for a good reason because we are one of the better teams in the championship. Just a bad day at the office imo !

Positives

We tried to play football, unfortunately nothing came off for us

Negatives

Lack of urgency when on the ball.
Rather than shoot at any given opportunity we try to walk the ball into the net.
Poor crosses.
Baggies beat us for pace on the break.
Stretched all over the park particularly in the 2nd half.
Midfield overrun
Too many errors in crucial areas.
When we did create space for a shot, poor technique as we shot into the side netting as oppose to across the keeper twice !
BPF is becoming a liability.
Dallas is not a defender.
Rarely looked like scoring, apart from Pablo's header at the death no credible effort on target.
Baggies looked like scoring every time they ventured forward.
