And the great thing is, as ever, Albion are thinking ahead.

Jakub Moder is already looking well set to step into Albion's vital "midfielder who can't score for toffee" role.

Indeed.

Mwepu will have to learn quick if he is going to get any game time.

I never made decent level myself, but I had really detailed conversations with my Dad, who was full professional in Div 3 South back in the 50s, and my brother, who was semi pro for the LA Aztecs feeder team back in 1982. They both played centre forward, they would talk for hours about positional instinct, using body posture and positioning to shield and/or get in front, and about execution at moments of truth etc

What Maupay did last night was an example of ALL of that, intelligence, instinct, positioning, shielding, physical strength, decision making, execution, all absolutely perfect, and true top pro standard. That’s probably our goal of the season. Technically it was more difficult than Alireza’s overhead against Chelsea.
Nice. I'm going to google the Wedged family to read up on your football history !

I am still trying to work out how he did not get this on target!

Ball on the floor at perfect pace, no player near him just drill it anywhere to keepers right and it’s a goal

To be fair you need weapons grade binoculars, and a time machine, to find any prolific BHA goal scorer or sharp shooter.

Lallana is particularly excellent at passing it just wide of the post/over the bar. makes Trossard look like Mo Salah

His finishing is shocking! Great player but he used to bang them away for Liverpool and Southampton. I seem to remember him scoring against us once. I don't know what we do to our midfielders to beat their shooting ability out of them.

All this is true of a pub player on a sunday morning though.

Sorry, Lallana should be doing loads better than he is

Some balance here. I think you mean that Lallana should be doing better at scoring. In other aspects he has been absolutely brilliant and I love him! Agree?

Yes mate, i'm not saying Lallana is a pub player. We were talking about the difficulty of the finish and the things which had to be considered. In my mind that was a relatively uncomplicated situation.

I've said a few harsh things on this thread about his finishing, but in the middle of the park, he's class

A woodwork hitting Mo Salah :wink: ( I love him though)

I'm quite surprised this thread wasn't bounced following the Burnley game... another great chance spurned, but with his head this time.

I was less than complimentary on another thread. Seeing it from this angle, he had a lot less to aim for than I had previously thought. The header looked straightforward, but there were a lot of players between him and the goal.

Agree, but sooner or later you still have to ask the question…1 goal and 2 assists in 50 games? Shouldn’t we be expecting just a little more?
