You don't have you justify and validate your decision (just because 11 footballers couldn't combine to hit a cows are with a banjo - despite the cow in question being tied to a fence with all 4 feet set in concrete, and the banjo actually being the size of a double bass (I'm guessing I've over egged this one)).


You do you.
Indeed, and I normally ignore the sanctimony but just every now and again like to remind others that some of us have different priorities. I actually feel slightly sorry for folk who are so tied the the faith that they cant miss a minute in a lost cause, but I don't make too much of it...

In reality we should of all cleared.out after about 20 mins when Welbz missed his third decent, but not great, chance.

The only surprise from today was we did actually score.

The really frustrating thing is that we should really have done the double over them this season. Yet ended up with just 2 points.
…nice to know it’s still our Albion though isn’t it? ;)

haven't seen the goal back so not sure if anyone particularly was culpable, but thought Igor, Dunk and Van Hecke all had very good games today.
Don’t know if mentioned .. am peeved the referee/VAR didn’t look at the goal. Watch Godfrey pull on Ferguson, literally drags him ti the ground to stop him challenging to clear the 1st ball in.. it then drops to the giraffe who smacks it home. It injured Ferguson in the fall.. genuine foul not the normal grabbing that goes on at every set piece..

Have seen it back, Ferguson was clearly fouled. I'd love to hear PGMOLs explanation on this, Tarkowski not getting a second yellow (not that VAR could've intervened on that, I think) and the ref stopping play when we were on the attack for Tarkowski being hit with the ball, then giving us the ball back in the same position afterwards when they had ample time to put their ten man wall up. Ref realised he f***ed up on the latter and just made up his own laws.

I don't know why we persisted with the same corner routine for just about every corner.
We know they are a big team so some variation could have been better.
Having said that, we headed the ball straight at Pickford about three times in the first half, so a bit more direction would have helped.
Think you answered your own question there pal 🤣

Edit just seen others already replied saying the same 😬

Won’t be going to watch a Sean dyche team play at the Amex again. Anti football, time wasting and hoof ball isn’t worth it.
Did they time waste? I really don't remember much in the way of time wasting to be fair, bar right at the death which all teams do (including us) if leading, especially by 1 goal.

Its ingrained in their game - Pickford taking time on kicks, or going for a wander to shout something when it's time to restart play, throws, kicks, all of it from minute one. And it doesn't get picked up as it's not a sudden change - its throughout. See all the metrics here, they are consistently amongst the 'worst'.

Imagine travelling all the way down from Merseyside to watch your team play anti football on steriods. Especially as they have enough quality to NOT play like that.

What a difference to that Sheffield United geezer who said he didn't think it was a red for challenge on Mitoma last week. At least Dunky is honest and admits he can understand the red today against wee Billy.
Great interview dunky.You are what a legend is made of.

Thank god I don't support Everton. They're stuck with 1970s hoofball and solely rely on free kicks and corners to create chances.

Whilst I agree, whenever they get a free kick from anywhere near the halfway line, inc in their own half, they pump it into the box and might get a chance from it, exactly as Dyche's Burnley did (and as lead to their goal yesterday).

Why don't more teams do that, even the teams that like to pass?
