    2 dropped to a very poor side. We look great until the final third when, today, we only seriously threatened from Connelly’s dink over the keeper. Really need to see the teams off around us!

      I put 2 points dropped because we really should have won this on the 1st half showing alone. Ifs and buts I know but if Trossard had been fit we may have come away with the 3 points. I hope he is back soon. At least we didn't lose.

      Played well but we are going to score less than last season playing like this.

      It would have been two points dropped if we had had a glut of chances, but we didn’t. We had a few but we weren’t exactly pushing the ball over the line or cutting their defense to ribbons. We were playing keep ball in the middle. When burns and Webster push up out of the three we’re 6/7 in midfield which makes our dominance easier to achieve.

      IMO this dominance masked a lack of presence up front. Therefore a point gained for me as despite being the better team we didn’t have what it takes to break them down.
      Yes, agree with this, though you are perhaps a shade harsh. No trossard or Murray and so we had to field two inexperienced youngsters, who did, nonetheless do us proud. Encouraging performance for me, and yes, it is also frustrating to dominate, as we have done so often, and yet not get the 3 deserved points. But yet again we have shown so far that we are better than 5 other teams in "our league". I think there is more to come.

      Silly question, being that we were so dominant.

      Have you been drinking Bozza
      Depends on how you define dominant.

      Toon: 4 Shots on target.
      BHA: 3 Shots on target.

      Possession does not win matches, goals do.
      I’d take 10% if we scored a few!

      With his back to the goal, he was superbly positioned to see two unmarked colleagues (one was Alzate) just a few yards in front of him, yet he chose to try and beat opponents right on top of him. I've seen selfishness as bad as that before, but in 50 years watching football I've never seen worse.
      I’ll have to watch that incident again and I will get back to you on that...

      That aside, to put your mind at rest, he’s definitely not turning into the next Locadia and in my opinion has shown more than enough already to indicate that he will be our top man and our main goal scoring threat this season....

      We had 16 shots to their 11 and we had one cleared when over half the ball was over the line with some amazing defending by them!

      I don't think you would feel too comfortable watching 10% possession game though!
      was out on 9,999 but back after special request from Whitechapel.

      Point gained. They only looked dangerous when Caroll came o and changed there game. With Androne gone ang Murray with a niggle something we were unable to do. Thought there sub was outstanding and if stays fit will win a few games for them

      Yes, I noticed him in an earlier match for Newcastle -big bustling lad with real pace.
