I still don't like how we pass the ball along the back line SO much, and often back to the goalie. Just feels so risky, just seen it twice now in a couple of minutes.

Probably adds to our possession stats, but I don't like it at all.

Really wish we were better at getting corners over the first man.    We suck at taking them and we get lots of opportunities.   Need to figure that out if we're going to be a threat.

We are kicking ass. West Brom is limping going forward. We didn't score though. It will be interesting to see if West Brom can up their game in the second half.

Agree with comments above.

Cav deliveries been below par from corners.

Knockaert sloppy .. 50:50 success rates in passes, shots etc.

I wonder if switching Knockers to the other side and see if he gets any more joy? Just for 10 mins?

Could do with full backs getting further forward too so Knocks/Cav have the space to drift closer inside because they’re hugging the touchline and although that makes them get on the ball more it means they’re less effective.

14 corners is an awful lot not to get any decent attempts from

Sky says we totally dominated in every way for the first hour. I would say the first 70 mins, rather gutting that.

Also, after they scored we did not seem to have any kind of Plan B as in pushing up / overloading to go for the win, we just carried on playing the same way.

We can't keep needing 10 plus decent chances to score and allow the opposition to score so easily. While the possession is fine we are still moving the ball too slowly. We are under performing, imo, at present.

Penalty on Bobby should have been called.  Would have been a 2-1 win.

Still bothers me that we conceded that corner goal...yet we get way more opportunities and do shite all with our corners.
