    Mental Strength

    It isnít about being bad players. Itís about our inability to handle the pressure of a crunch match. That the only conclusion I can come to for such poor passing

    Bottled it, end of story

      Dale Stephens was shitting himself from minute one. I was a huge fan of his but he is getting worse and worse. Dithers on the ball and if he doesn't get robbed his passing is laughable at this level. One of the worst performances I've seen from an Albion player.

      Agree.
      I said on the match thread I cannot remember ever playing a team like us. We have games where we give up. I think that is on Hughton to be honest. The inevitable loss after sitting back away from home. The acceptance of defeat after 50 minutes. Who have we played in such an important match (ever) where the opposition has given up like we did tonight?

      Agreed. Totally shocking performance. Yet Hughton continues to play him.

      Let's face it Warnock would have given his players mental strength day in day out, let alone pre-match and at half time.

      How do you think that would go with Hughton?

      Exactly.
      was out on 9,999 but back after special request from Whitechapel.

      Yup, when that moment comes - when the pressure is really on - you take that fleeting look at the people around you and some seem to visibly grow in stature whilst others shrink and diminish. We need some moral courage out there - players prepared to step up and take a leadership role. But I fear it may now be too late for that now, regardless.

      Meek - and getting what meek will alway get; **** all.

      Opposition teams have actually stopped trying to tackle him as they know they'll get it off him more often than not anyway. Been happening for a few games now, better to wait and risk it than potentially concede a foul.

      Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      Not seen us bottle it this much since we threw away winning the Championship
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      Agreed, he was truly pathetic tonight but it wasn’t just him, there was hardly a player on the pitch who didn’t give the ball away at some point during the match.

      Our strongest player mentally, Kayal, didn’t even get a look in.
