AK47 and Arter

Should not be starting for us unless we have injuries,  both very poor tonight.

Admittedly AK hasn’t had much of a sniff and Arter has been injured.. both need a few games before judgment can be passed.. but agree AK was largely ineffective and Arter only really offered us a sideways pass. Arter did however find space on occasion and offered an outlet.. always wanted the ball etc.

Agree. Today showed that it’s not just Rodak and Hector that completes our side, McDonald does too.

I was at the game on Saturday and thought he was lucky not to be subbed. A quality player on his day but had a couple of poor performances in the last two matches

Harry Arter had a big part in the opening goal. He does worry with his persistsnt arguing, that he is waiting for another red card.

Cav couldn’t get into the game exactly the same as AK couldn’t
They blocked those channels out - despite Hector lumping it into the corners all first  half

Thought we were extremely unlucky (again)
Without their ridiculous goal we would have walked that game - and to hit the bar in the last minute was desperately unlucky

Well we do have injuries
Reed and Knockaert and McDonald likely fatigued
Not to mention Kongolo and Mawson

Although with that said, tonight's starting XI wouldn't have been my choice

Glad someone else has noticed Hector’s passing flaws.

He is great across the floor.. but as soon as he goes in the air it balloons straight to their man and we lose possession.

What is Kamara doing in this team?  Cavaleiro, Knockhaert and Kebano are all far better players.  Kamara did nothing tonight and looked totally out of his depth.  Like Mince and Tatties above I can't understand what some on this board see in him.  It just shows we all have different opinions, I suppose.  When Kebano came on he looked more threatening in a few minutes, as he did earlier in the season against Bristol City.  We should see more of him, if not starting but off the bench.

Me too and I agree; Bobby was poor on Saturday and poor tonight ! Saturday was not great and considering Blackburn were very poor going forward our MOTM was Hector 🤔 !

Hector superb, passing in the air apart he defended brilliantly  and was my MOM. AK47 as ever offers nothing but pace and power, poor technique and intelligence,  as for Arter he offered nothing, Stef Jo must be gutted hes not getting a look in. Parker was generally poor tonight IMO based on selection and tactics.

On the Radio London commentary last night Paul Parker was quite scathing about Harry Arter's performance. How did he play?

Very poor. Contributed very little and a liability in the sense that he is a red card waiting to happen.
