Disappointing result given how much we dominated possession at times. I guess it's another nail in their coffin though, so silver linings.

Vitinha was by far the best player on the pitch. Shouldn't have been subbed and deservedly MOTM. Play him every game now please Nuno.

Otasawie did well too. He looks very good once he starts striding forward with the ball and he does offer some link play too. Definitely need to see more of him.

Rui had a great game too. Made the saves when we needed him to. No chance for the goal.

I think that game sums Traore up. He's never going to be more than a pace and strength merchant, and his 1 reasonably effective game in 5 isn't enough. Needs to be moved on and a more tricky and team player brought in to the wide forward positions.

RAN injury is concerning though. Hopefully it's just a knock. Really need him until the end of the season.

Patricio or Traore? I know who I would choose. Who was the most fouled player on the pitch?

My hot thought before I go into the rest is that Adama was so frustrating tonight. It's pointless him doing what he does if he's not going to produce anything. He reminds me of a kid in a school playground who only thinks about shooting.

Not a fan of 4 at the back, but if we must play it then that’s how. Vitinha was excellent and defending from the front.

Their goal totally on Saiss. Donk was poor as per.

Most annoying thing was that goal could have been avoided. I thought Coady played well tonight though.

Much better than we all expected, that is for sure.

Vitinha has to play all the time now, no excuse not to. RAN was very impressive in the first half.

Neves and Donck did their jobs pretty well as a two in the middle there, which made the back four a little more secure than it has been previously.

Thought Gibbs-White looked alright too when he came on. Wouldn't mind him, Podence and Vitinha behind the striker for a few games

On the face of it a draw with a team in the Albion's position has got to be considered disappointing, but that performance was a breath of fresh air.

Keep playing the kids, Nuno, and we'll be OK.

Great intent. Poor quality. Rui performed well. RAN, Vitinha outstanding. Silva showing why he is valued so highly - pity nobody has the quality to pass to him in the box.

He was poor. But always pulled down cynically.

A 4-2-3-1 with Neto, Vitinha and Jimenez would be pretty sexy.

I'd keep Traore too. Time is up on Podence for me at the moment...

Don't think I can cope with Podence and Traore on the pitch at the same time, the wrong decision twins
I don’t disagree but who made the right decisions? Our quality is lacking. Vitinha & RAN excepted.

Podence continually frustrates. He gets in some great positions then fucks up with flicks or tricks when there's usually a simpler option to retain possession or move the ball forward.

Podence and Traore as competition in those positions are fine. Doubt Traore will settle for that with his contract situation mind.

Sign Trincao and another, we need depth in the wide positions for once.

Neves, Vitinha and a CM next season would be lovely.

Trying to work out the worst decisons of the game

a) Everytime Traore cut inside and shot
b) The Lino for the "foul" by Silva
c) Mike Dean not letting a quick free kick being taken from the spot of the offence.

More postives, which is nice. Standard piss easy goal for them though but more importantly....4 to go.

Er I'm guessing the guy who isn't playing in goal!

And I would choose Rui every time.
