Positive: Midfielders scoring
Negative: Brentford won again
What I want from an owner: 1. Ambition. 2. Wage bill control. 3. Cut spending on loan fees. 4. Better scouting. 5. Get bigger fees for our best players. 6.No ego.

Positive - LB performance of the season from Douglas

Negative - The bloody "drinks" breaks..No need
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

Positive: Barry Douglas off the bench

Negative: Still too much untidiness in the back. Nearly cost us dearly, especially in the first half. Cooper made a fine play to rescue Meslier in the second half. We won't continue to get away with that sort of thing.

Positive- Douglas played his best game for us

Negative- looked very exposed at the back at times

I've said it before and will say it again they should only have a drinks break if necessary. The ref should see what the temperature is before the match and then decide. Why have a drinks break when it is only mild and raining? Just a ludicrous rule.

Positive: The way we dominated the second half after Blackburn threatened to come back into the match. Would have been easy to be nervy and sat deep but similar to the Fulham second half we imposed ourselves on the opposition who had probably given everything they had in the first half and simply couldn't live with us.

Negative: We looked so jittery in defence, and the keeper especially, in the first half. I know some of here rave about Messlier but he makes me extremely nervous. His positioning was poor from the freekick, I saw his position before it was taken and was horrified at the size of the gap he had left, the free kick simply had to be on target to go in.

Positives. Bamford taking chances first time.

Negatives. Meslier is startiing to give me Kiko type jitters.

Dallas has been excellent all season at RB & LB, plus Stuart has scored some vital goals

Positive

We totally controlled the middle of the park once the master replaced Roberts

Negative

Bryn what's his name raving about two passes & a timid header from Cooper which were woeful

Positives

Klich finding some form and end product again.

Negatives

Roberts as a 10, may learn but he isnt creative or intelligent enough atm. Klich is doing the midfield work for 2 with Roberts as a 10.

Only created 1 chance, Hernandez created 2.

Does his best Roberts but he isnt Pablo and it shows.

not sure how his play was during the game as I didn't watch the game - but watch that freekick again, its sublime, absolutely nothing any goalkeeper could do about that. A keeper will always stand to the opposite side to the wall - obviously if a player is good enough to get it up and over the wall and on target it usually goes in...v harsh to blame that on meslier for me who has been unbelievably solid since he's replaced kiko and (for me) far far far better

I think Meslier has made us far better. Casilla always had a gaff in him and before the break I think we had 5 clean sheets in a row with him in net. No keeper would have saved that free kick, which shouldn't have been given in the first place (s**t ref). At his age and alleged price it's a no brainer that we buy him.

Still young, not supposed to be playing, maybe 3 -5 years away from his peak...not his best game today, some of the distribution not up to his high standards
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!
