Dismal.  We played better under Warnock.

Difference being we pretty much always played like donkeys under Colin.

This time its just that our skill, such as it is, is being negated by a similarly good opposition.

Negativity on here is terrible. Playing 2nd place in the division away from home. A tough stop start game. Missed a couple of really good chances which on another day could have won us the game. They

We've missed some golden late chances and not been at our best - but why there is so much negativity on here is beyond me. We're on a great run and playing an away fixture against an extremely tough s

Disappointing result and performance, but nights like last night are standard in the Championship - even for promotion candidates. Even during our promotion under Karanka we had many of these types of

Tav and/or Howson off at half time, payero and/or Watmore on. Probably Tav I’d pick for Watmore, Tav only more than Howson due to him having a yellow, get some attacking intent going.

Jonny Howson the slowest midfielder in world football. Takes that long to do anything he actually goes back in time.

6m Argentine U21 international on the bench so this clown can sit in the hole doing naff all.

Awful first half. 

Will say I think it was a pen. As he pulls his leg back to kick he connects with the defender and that's what sends him over. There was one angle where it was clear as day imo!

Can't complain really though, would have been undeserved.

Poor first half from both sides, let hope CW sticks a rocket up their ***!


He needs to somehow give them a rocket whilst also calming them down. We can't afford any red cards.

Grim that. Payero has to come on for one of the midfield 3, could really be any of them. 

Connolly been poor but both strikers been feeding off absolute scraps so hard to be too critical.

I'm actually raging at that midfield trio. How can not 1 of them seriously be dropping in, picking it up, creating an angle? They're all just staring at the CBs waiting for them to bang it long. Tav/Howson need sending home at half time. Dire.

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
