Stiepermann really poor this half.

He's not good enough for this level. 

Makes the wrong decision too frequently, we don't have the luxury of allowing him to get the weight of 3 through balls wrong for every 1 he gets the right and he has no composure whatsoever with chances, just skies them all.

I'm afraid we really need to upgrade in that position. Shame that Hernandez is out really, as it would be Cantwell through the middle and Stiepermann on the bench..

Why are you so keen to call penalties against 'your' team?

... because I am fair-minded..... have you heard of the word impartial ?

In all honesty, Palace are poor. We should be doing better than we are

I was about to say the same. How the hell are we losing to this lot.

Agreed. This is a game we should be winning.

And you called others moaners...

I am not moaning at all, just think we should be doing better.

If it wasn't for a daft penalty we might have been

It was a daft penalty to concede, for sure, but still a penalty.

It's kind of ironic that we play great football now, suited to the Premiership, and yet we're losing to teams that are strong physically!

Hope Roberts might come on too and help us sneak that equalizer

We are too naïve, despite Farke saying different.

We're playing ok, but should be  winning? I'm not sure. Seems to me Palace are comfortable and have us at arms length, ditto Burnley and West Ham. 

We lack raw speed and directness. Hernandez, essentially.

Its not physical in the terms of brute force and toughness. It's the pace and power that we can't match.

Am I the only one on the fence for the penalty? Can I see why it was given? Yes. Do I think it was soft and could easily have been over turned? Yes. I'd complain if I didn't get it  as an attacker but complain if it was given against me, so I can't get too excited by it.

No, I agree its as soft a penalty you will see

Christ, if we had pace and power on top of the skill and technique that we do have...... we'd be Liverpool.

Basically not a lot

I'm happy to give him more than 16 before I make up my mind.
