RDZ talked about this being a final and picked a line up for a pre season friendly. More fire power in the first half, we're 3 up in half an hour.

North Stand in particular, looked a bit cold and hung over

You sounded good at times on the radio, the RDZ song was audible and a couple of Albions.

Probably not the easiest game to muster much enthusiasm.

At least we got a point.

six feet beneath the moon...
atmosphere sounded decent today, but if what you’re asking for is for the crowd to almost carry the team to victory like they do at villa park or st james’, it’s just never going to happen

The foriegn manager got the team wrong. Should of picked Dunk, March, Ferguson, Welbeck and Zamora. All ENGERLAND players

Well this!!

No point in demanding passion from the crowd and then showing nothing on the field.
The first half was pretty boring from the 15th minute onwards and the atmosphere dissipated accordingly.

Can't help but feel RDZ will feel let down by us after that. Let's hope he doesn't take it personally.
Not let down by Dahoud's red , or the rest of the players failing to take advantage of a weak opposition?
Or by VAR refusing to give a stonewall penalty?

But let down by the fans who made a great atmosphere for the first 15 minutes which dissipated, when the players showed little appetite to go out and win their "cup final!.

Yeah right, this one's squarely on us..
Course it is.

Probably all of them.

Probably all of them.
First and foremost is to get the players up for their "cup final".

The fans did their bit and then for some reason the players treated the game like it was done and dusted.
The same thing happened against Fulham.

There seems to have been a mentality switch from "we're going to score more than you" to "we're going to see out the game".
It worked against Ajax, but it isn't working in the Prem.

That isn't the fans fault.
