We nearly score with the final passage of play. After a breakdown between Tav and McNair we win the ball back and Wing whacks one from 35 yards. Cannons off a WBA player straight to Johnson, who drives one from about 20 yards. That hits Britt, who actually controls it and gets a good shot off saved by Johnstone. It bounces into the air and Saville gets his head on it and it loops over and a combo of Bartley and Johnstone tip it over the bar.

Well those stats aren't right because Johnstone made saves on McNair and Britt. Savilles header I think is also tipped over by Johnstone, so we had 3 shots on target at least.

Really decent performance first half. Much better than recently. West Brom haven't really looked a threat. Hopefully more of the same and a goal in the second half.

This is far far better than pre international break.

Our biggest problem is still some of the passes. There's so many what if passes, that are either too heavy, or get cut out, or aren't heavy enough, but that are intended for players making good runs.

There's intent there, just not the execution.

We can be ok satisfied with this performance against a top of the table side who normally scores for fun .. We just need a little more composure and better passes .. The runs are there and we just need to take our chances and the right decisions

    • I wonder if Villa will become desperate enough to meet our demands for Britt if they are indeed interested, They are signing Samatta but apparently also want Giroud but it looks like they could miss out on him to Inter.
    • Surely that would only happen if we were to offload Gestede. Or maybe Britt (though I'd much rathe have Britt than Gregory). But it would allow us to save some cash for summer. I'd happily offload Gestede and replace him with Gregory though if it meant saving some money.
    • I really don’t have a preference to who comes in but it’s obvious we need numbers and players into positions they fit. I fully support giving the younger academy players support and opportunity to prove themselves because I believe we should aim for a mobile youthful squad with pace. If we can get energetic players with energy to move as units then we can press higher up the field and still have pace at the back. The fact the game is turning into a non contact sport suggests mobility and pace are paramount.  We also need players who can hit a high percentage on target, which should be a prerequisite but we seem to struggle with.   
    • https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7905639/Inter-Milan-want-sign-Christian-Eriksen-Tottenham-time-clash-against-Cagliari.html Daily Mail are saying we want Lee Gregory on loan.
    • Bring him in on loan, option to buy if it works out, bring Gibson back as a starter so we have the cover to let Woods out on loan.
