    Despite a few on here thinking I'm a moaner or miserable, please read my posts from the past six years, I am the first to jump on the doom mongers on here. However, and, ok, not a Prem game, it was utter dirge for 75 mins. Everyone forgets when you score a goal how desperately bad it was against a Championship side, despite what people say about what the opposition spent, etc., etc. They are still a league below us and we had no thought of an attacking option until JI came on. If we are playing the 0-0 away from home v Boro in the FA cup, can anyone see the Prem getting any better? I think we have a long, long, long 4 months ahead of us. By the grace of God.
    We beat a team with our mostly second team who 2 seasons ago went up instead of us. This season they spent the same as we did and wouldnt stand a chance against our first team. At the point where the game had changed you didnt seem to be either watching it anymore or realise that despite a bad first half we were the only likely winner by the end of the second. Personally I thought the game really changed when Propper came on Jose had a good game though. You got into a needless fight and are feeling hard done by but sleep on it.

      Goldson - played the last Prem game v Chelsea
      Suttner - played half the games at full back in the Prem, started v Chelsea
      Knockaert - regular Prem player
      Stephens - regular Prem player, started v Chelsea
      Hemed - plenty of Prem exposure, started v Chelsea
      Groß - regular Prem player, started v Chelsea
      Murray - regular Prem player, came on v Chelsea
      Izquierdo - first team player, came on v Chelsea
      Kayal - coming back from injury, came on v Chelsea
      Propper - regular first team player, started v Chelsea

      Yep, that was our 'reserve' side.

      Kayal - coming back from injury, came on v Chelsea

      Yep, that was our 'reserve' side.
      Suttner is second choice versus pace
      Goldson is NOT first choice
      Knockaert left the game in anger after not even being put on the bench in our last league game
      Hemed is our second striker before we recently broke our transfer record and will now be 3rd maybe 4th if Baldock gets his mojo back
      Gross did not play did you watch the game?
      Kayal is not a first team player

      Murray Iquierdo came on as subs one for a nasty injury yes it was mostly a reserve side for most of the game.

      Edit and i see you meant Propper instead of Gross I have said he changed the game but just proves my point if it had been a starting XI we have much improved over the last 2 seasons.

      Well it wasn't really a comeback as such, but now you mention it, it would be good to know how many PL minutes on average we had in the team, weighted by the proportion of the cup tie each player appeared in.

      Stephens and Pröpper clearly push up the figure, but Skalak, Hunemeier, Goldson, Rosenior, Krul and Baldock pull it way down.

      Suttner is second choice versus pace - incorrect and played v Chelsea
      Goldson is NOT first choice - he was v Chelsea
      Knockaert left the game in anger after not even being put on the bench in our last league game - and you get this knowledge from...
      Hemed is our second striker before we recently broke our transfer record and will now be 3rd maybe 4th if Baldock gets his mojo back - and you are the coach that makes these decisions? - he has been picked ahead of Murray many times and played v Chelsea, our last home game.
      Gross did not play did you watch the game? - To painful to answer again
      Kayal is not a first team player - played v Chelsea, very much a first team player
      Murray Iquierdo came on as subs one for a nasty injury yes it was mostly a reserve side for most of the game. - yes, well spotted, both played v Chelsea

      Please, please, if you have something to say, make sure it is worth it.

      We aren’t Liverpool/Chelsea etc.
      We don’t have a divine right to play well or beat a Championship side.
      We won.
      All that matters.
