    All that's going through my head is the word complacency.

      One word in mine too: bedwetters.
      This is not Nick Rhodes.

      To say they were complacent or bottlers is nonsense. All season when we have the lead we defend well and look to break. No different tonight. The difference was a flukey goal which gave them the confidence to score a good winner.

      I think Tomori did OK, losing Poco was a blow but he did OK. Stockdale nearly gifted them a goal.

      The fact is a deal was probably fair but you don't always get what you want. Look at the table now, I'm living it still!

      Crap linesmen, too many players off their game, very lucky equaliser, very poor passing.

      But we are still clear in second let's do the job on Saturday and see who we gain points over.

      Bollocks! We played well overall and I don't remember seeing a flukier goal against the Albion in my lifetime! A draw was clearly the fair result and I think even a lot of the Newcastle fans would agree with that. What is it with you negative bedwetters just waiting for the chance to let you negativity loose?

      I'd give your head a serious wobble if all you can hear is "complacency" running through it when we are sitting 2nd in the Championship 6 points clear and losing to a goal like their leveller!

      Yes it's quite laughable. We're up against, lets face it, a massive club whose team probably cost tenfold what ours did (and lets not even
      mention the wage bill). So Chris Hughton has cleverly crafted a team of very good players, no doubt brought them on as players individually
      to a point where we can actually compete against the very best in this division and for the most part have been in the top two. Really when
      you think about it, it's some of the fans that haven't got the balls for it not the players if you'll excuse the pun. And then they throw around
      weak 'bottle job' or 'complacency' comments.

      I'm up for it. We lost - maybe unfortunately or maybe deservedly but that games gone, move on to the next with pride at what this team has
      achieved. When Leicester went up we beat them both times that season yet still didn't go up ourselves and look what they went on to achieve. Getting beaten twice by
      arguably the best, most expensively assembled team in the league means nothing.

      Annoying but not the end of the world as we know it.

      There are many more twists to this tale
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !
