Disappointing night all-round, several so caled 'fringe' players let themselves and the club down. Like '57 I thought that the much maligned Emile Heskey had a reasonably decent game, but overall the only two players who really shone were Stephen Ireland and Marc Albrighton. Personally I'd have gone for Albrighton, but I cant really protest too long and loud about Stephen Ireland getting the nod. Cant help but think that that might have been our last taste of competitive european club football for quite a while. Sad our latest venture into europe should end on that depressing note.

Everyone was poor, Albrighton had a big impact, but i think that irelands all round game was good he tried to get the game going and keep up the tempo but the rest of the team was a let down, When we get a new manager in who actually realises he is better than young in the free roam/Am postiion then he will shine. As for every1 else, they didnt deserve to have 1% Apart from albrighton obv and gabby but he went of early so yeah.

Too many defensive changes too quickly, for me that sthe main problem. With Ash behind on Thursday we had no width. The whole point about the Wst Ham game was two wingers and width. That disappeared. He who shall not be named at least had a game plan - even if it never changed. Now we change every game. Maybe thats the difference - and those players used to playing the same way for several years cannot cope with a new system.

Agree gordons left boot, All the fans ncan see the problem why cant they? We should stick with the 3 man midfield in reo and petrov but this time have reo and petrov deeper and ireland in an advanced position but also helpin back sometimes, Young and albrigton should be wingers and stay on the wings! While agbonlahor/carew are the lone striker.
