+ too many to mention
- tough on the young players ie Meslier, Cresswell and Shackleton, they all played well.

Positive: 3 academy products in the starting XI
Negative: Wasting easy chances again and not bringing in Roberts rather than Gelhardt

Plus - Top game from Rodrigo
Neg - The result didn't go our way despite deserving a draw at the very least. Coop and Shack maybe costing us a point
21/22 team - Meslier - Ayling - Firpo- Koch - Llorente - Phillips - Dallas - Raphinha - Harrison - Klich - Rodrigo

Positives.. Raphinha is getting even better
Negatives Roberts is getting worse

Positive - Charlie Cresswell. Great premiership debut.

Negative - use of wingers. Changing Dan James at half time was bizarre. You need that pace and energy as the game gets stretched in the 2nd half. Then to cap it all Bielsa must have been aware that Raph was not going to be able to complete 90 mins. Answer playing Robert’s again on wing. MB had a haunted look in post match interview. Not surprised - he got it wrong big time and that effectively cost us the game. Yeah Klich missed a sitter ( he does on a regular basis ) but that was more down to game management.

I am going to have a rant now.

Alioski was always liable to dive in and make rash challenges. But he was at least aware of where he needed to be positionally. Firpo is atrocious defensively as a LB on what I have witnessed so far, he seems to have no concept of positional awareness. We will get sucker punched repeatedly unless he improves drastically. He looks befuddled and that is putting it mildly.
In addition, Since the start of this season our left side looks bereft of creating danger.
I am concerned we will get exploited continuously unless this is sorted out. Hats off to Cooper who covers a lot of ground to mitigate this calamity more often than not.

Positive: First half performance- the best of the season so far
Negative: Second half performance and poor game management. Firpo worries me- It looks like he's never played left back in his life. He was all over the place positionally, one of which led to the first goal.

+ Good first half performance, but didn't take our chances against a quality side
- Poor substitutions and West Ham were able to take advantage of our second half dip

Brilliant stuff from Kagey here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAgTnZ8fKSI

I love his comment about Tyro: "If Roberts was in a boat in the middle of the ocean and he fell out, he would miss the water" :lol:

I really don't know why injuries aside, he was ever in the equation in the first place. He's a Championship midfielder at best and not PL standard.

Correct :tup:

MB needs to fix that midfield and quickly, cos at the moment KP is doing everything. Shackleton showed some great touches at right back, but he's wasted there, so get him in that midfield for a bit of creativity and determination.
