Would you be tempted to start with Drmic or Roberts instead of Stieperman next game?

Dr Mick not getting into the game at all, so no.

Well we're stacking up the away games. You fancy we'll dop better against WHM, Burnely and CPalace at home. We're still out of the bottom three!!

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

Its all about balance. Away from home especially, we lack the right kind of players.

And again Milivojevic poleaxed by the HUGE Buendia!

 

Schlupp cant see a problem with barging someone over from behind?

The point is Palace are a poor side and apart from the end of the first half we've barely laid a glove on them.

A poor premier league side, perhaps. 

I made this point a few weeks ago when someone called West Ham an “average side”. (Although West Ham I would say are probably better than Palace.)

Mid table “poor” premier league sides have still got players who they’ve paid tens of millions for - strong, powerful, quick, physical players. We’ve got some very good players but we’re starting to see the gulf in class between the prem and championship - every game we play this season will be very hard.

This ref is awful. Schlupp did nothing wrong there

Schlupp chucked the ball behind him and into the crowd to waste time. That's not wrong ?.

Its all depressingly predictable. 

The ironic thing is that three points today or last week at Burney, would have been of more value than beating Manchester City.

Very concerning that we have looked toothless going forwards away against West Ham, Burnley and Palace now.

He threw the ball into the crowd (unless I missed your sarcasm?)

Zaha has been the difference, but have to say we have been largely poor. Don't think their keeper has had a shot to save.

We're just not good enough, Palace have been in full control of this second half. Happy to let us have the ball because they know we'll do nothing with it.

Stiepermann isn't good enough, the problem is I'm not sure the alternatives are either (hurry up Vrancic, get fit). 

Resorted to long balls at times today, in fairness its partly because we're not willing to pass the ball to McGovern and that's understandable.

Its a bit depressing really, we're in a relegation dogfight. Insufficient number of players of the quality of Pukki and Buendia to penetrate.
