Who was best of the bunch against Boro?

The Argus: The coaching teams shake hands at the end The coaching teams shake hands at the end

It was another tough day for Albion.

But who did you feel was best of the bunch in the smash-and-grab defeat to Middlesbrough?

Jesse Lingard, maybe, who offered both hope and frustration at times and was the sponsors’ choice?

Both full-backs did some decent stuff going forward and there were times when Rohan Ince was strong in midfield.

Oscar Garcia felt Jake Forster-Caskey helped Albion get to grips with midfield after going in the first half.

It’s a tough one, granted, but who was the Seagulls’ best player for you today?

Sadly, they were all equally mediocre........I'm not so bothered about losing, it's the manner of the defeat that's hard to take. I said at half=time that after a totally lacklustre first half display, we needed to come out and show a bit of fight and spirit and for 10 minutes we did ok, created a couple of half chances, but as soon as they scored our heads dropped and we reverted to playing in our own half with no penetration, no-one getting into the box. Where's the desire, the fire in the belly, the crowd need something to get them going and I'm afraid there was nothing there today. Very disappointing and probably put paid to our play-off chances.

Lot of criticism of OG tonight – and understandably so – but to be fair to him, he just hadn't had enough attacking options this season to mix things up. Since Barnes' departure, Ulloa has had to lead the line on his own – whether he's been 100 per cent fit and healthy or not.

Just watched the Arsenal vs. Man City game and it's been the same for the Gooners since Walcott got injured. Giroud has been asked to do too much on his own up front.

Might have been a different story had CMS or Hoskins been back when they were expected. The question is would OG have played them had they been available?

We signed ulloa because we could not score with Hoskins cms and Barnes so the tinted specs from some fans needs to be taken with a pinch of realism.
As Duffy says it's the manner of our performance that simply was not good enough. Losing I accept , rolling over I can't.

We are not good enough for the playoffs, fact, we sold possibly our best player in january, couldn't even raise the funds to bring in Dobey who was doing well for us, we cant win home games and we cant score goals, and now the house of cards is falling in, we need to reorganise our scouting get rid of Burke who has the charisma of my nieces pet mouse.
And barber needs to stick to running the food halls and car parking badly, on a lot less wages, we then need to give OG the freedom to buy who he wants and go get um, please stop the rot now TB before its to late.

Hi,Bruce Do you think money team relied to much on cms/hoskins coming back or are their wages eating up to much of the budget( along with crofts/augestine) would like to know whether they get full pay when injured?
If this is the case it can go some way to explaining our dreadful january transfer window ,we needed the money from Bridcutt sale and Barnes to pay the bills. We have lost 22million in two years after all said and done.
I said some time ago the new training facility was great but 29 million ? Would 5-6 with the rest on the team before FFP came in been a better bet. The bills will only get paid by filling Amex or selling our best players and not spending.
I think we can begin to see the result. Sadly

Best of a poor bunch was probably Stephen Ward, simply for effort, application & desire. He was alone in not looking beaten and right to the end was galloping from box to box and taking on defenders. The fact that he's left back speaks volumes for the efforts of the others although I did think Ince was good and couldn't see why he was sacrificed and actually, JFC worked hard and at least tried to play penetrating passes when the opportunity arose.
Didn't agree with JL getting MoM. He showed endeavour but sadly looked like a development squad player a little out of his league at present.

Hello, Far Gull. I think most football people understand that when a player is coming back from a long-term injury there is often a setback, but I'm sure OG – like most of us – hoped to have the option of using CMS by now, if even just for the bench.

I have to agree that the January transfer window was a turning point, along with Crofts getting injured. Rodriguez and Stephens hardly filled the void left by the departures of Bridcutt and Barnes, plus the loss of Crofts.

The only reason we've stayed in contention for the playoffs is our miserly defence but you can't win a game you don't score in!!!

I would give my vote to Ward.
Looking through all the postings tonight, I think I am in a minority of one in thinking Andrews had a reasonable match. I thought his distribution was generally good. The decision to allow Ulloa to take the penalty was an accident waiting to happen. Since when has he displayed shooting prowess? I thought he was poor today.
At the point Ince was beginning to be very effective, he was subbed. Ulloa was wining hardly anything in the air so Lingard in Ulloa's 'role' with LuaLua on, would have made more sense to me.
Greer's leadership skills as captain are non existent and Dunk's time has now arrived.
Why on earth was Stephens missing and not even on the bench? What is the reason?
We have renewed our season tickets but having watched that abject performance today, I have serious doubts about Oscar and Nathan Jones. for next season. They appear to have lost the confidence of many supporters - and possibly some players?

Dire performance from a tactically inept manager. Our performances at The Amex this season have been drab, boring & toothless all year. The negative tactics have been found out by the opposition. We were promised attacking football when Oscar joined but we create fewer shots on goal than anyone else in this division. The manager has no passion, one dimensional, boring tactics, too defensive, lacks charisma whose tactics are poor. I thought watching Mike Bailey was drab (still our best manager EVER) yet was sacked when the crowds started falling. Garcia is lucky that the ground is still new, however, the boos were justified today & the mass exodus after the second goal was as if the game had finished.

Time for a change Tony. The side is going backwards, not huts today but over recent weeks. This slump will become a rot with the current manager. He is out of his depth. Time to plan for next season, with half of the overpaid prima donnas leaving too. Given the size of our crowds we DESERVE MUCH BETTER than what this muppet gives..

Do not agree with ´fozzies´thumbs down. he is right---the manager has got it wrong at times and shows no enthusiasm or drive that encourages the players to play out of their skin. i do not think the back room management had any intention of getting us up this season. they said as much when they said they hoped for a top ten finish to the season---at this rate we will be lucky to get that. Although I am not at matches it is plain to see that at times the players heart is not in it. For me at this rate the season is over and we need now to plan for next season and if that means a new manager --so be it. In many ways Gus was a hard act to follow.

We were promised attacking football- and what have we actually got- boring, defensive, frustrating football.

Basically apart from a few games this season I think we have had a fair bit of luck which has now run out. Not sure how to put things right as there seems to be quite a lot wrong! Might as well put some of our development squad into the first team for the remainder of the season as the play off dream is over and with the way things are going we will not be able to afford top signings next season.
Personally I don't want this season to end on a whimper, so add some passion leave out the players that are not achieving and above all have a real go at every team we have left to play....

Personally I don't want this season to end on a whimper, so add some passion leave out the players that are not achieving and above all have a real go at every team we have left to play.... Maddog Mc

A performance that lacked intent, passion, urgency, tempo, direction, pace. Has Oscar no clear plan for who takes the penalties when Lopez isn't on the pitch? Clearly the job of the manager. Lopez? First 4 corners and free kick all hopeless. Dreadful. Not giving us even a chance to score. Lopez generally? Poor as is so often the case.

Ulloa - odd body language again at times (certainly not set up for a penalty mindset wise). Poor service generally to him BUT 2 decent chances (including the penalty) AND Leo, it is your job occasionally to come to the near post/ get on the end of those balls that are passed in low to the area.

Greer? After the fine performances from Dunk and nothing special in therms of leadership from Gordon and 5 goals shipped in 3 games and errors in the past two added to by two dreadful errors today .... not sure how he retains his place really. Time too to let Calde have a run - a player that doesn't lack passion and can come up with some unexpected (pleasant) surprises sometimes. PASSION!!

Biggest applause of the first half by far? for Rohan for tracking back and absolute commitment over by the East stand.

Lingard? close to something special but a lack of service and slow build up doesn't suit his runs. Potential for becoming a headless chicken if not careful a la Spanish Rodney.

AND YET SOMETHING ODD IS OCCURING ....

We could have had 6 goals today with better finishing. the replays of the misses were not played on the big screens presumably so as to not add to the misery for the player being inept. The final ball to create the chance was there. Right on to the player to have a decent goal scoring chance. Including the penalty on the law of averages with decent finishing we should have had 3. So how does that come about if we are playing so "dreadfully"? Clearly we aren't - yes it lacks pace and passion and excitement but actually the quality isn't too bad as the chances are being created. They are there - time and again. ALSO - both today and Tuesday broadly the results have VERY much gone in our favour - it CAN still be done but the players need to man up, show balls, not let Oscar down, complete, add in some true grit and passion. In short - MAKE IT HAPPEN - and it may well do so!!

UTA!! Opportunity on Tuesday and then two more away opportunities. LET's DO IT!! PASSION ...... DESIRE ..... BELIEF .... and most of all (as missing in defence of late!!) - FOCUS!!

I would give my vote to Ward.
Looking through all the postings tonight, I think I am in a minority of one in thinking Andrews had a reasonable match. I thought his distribution was generally good. The decision to allow Ulloa to take the penalty was an accident waiting to happen. Since when has he displayed shooting prowess? I thought he was poor today.
At the point Ince was beginning to be very effective, he was subbed. Ulloa was wining hardly anything in the air so Lingard in Ulloa's 'role' with LuaLua on, would have made more sense to me.
Greer's leadership skills as captain are non existent and Dunk's time has now arrived.
Why on earth was Stephens missing and not even on the bench? What is the reason?
We have renewed our season tickets but having watched that abject performance today, I have serious doubts about Oscar and Nathan Jones. for next season. They appear to have lost the confidence of many supporters - and possibly some players?
You may be in the minority but I would go along with everything you say too, so let's make that a minority of two.
It'll take a brave coach to drop the skipper, but I quite agree that Dunk should be playing alongside Upson. Dunk is also our future, so the more he plays the better he'll become. He is the best young defender we have and has the potential to be not only a good player but a better player than GG.

We all have opinions and however ridiculous we think some of them are, the only people who control the club's destiny, don't write posts on here.
They are the people who have stated an ambition to reach the PL
They are the people trying to cut massive operating losses
They are the people setting the levels of quality by setting our level of spending
And they are the people who will determine the future of the club and it's staff.
So now, with supporters looking for answers, even with play-offs still a (distant) possibility, surely now is the time to begin revealing some long term thinking?
if OG is still their man, surely they must make it clear? They don't have to issue an obvious 'vote of confidence' but they can drop out a few hints?
If, on the other hand, they're thinking he's not the long term answer, then please, let's not waste another summer by changing things too late?
WE don't really know whether OG has been forced to work with players identified by others, or whether he has or hasn't 'lost' the dressing room as some have suggested.
What we do know is the current form is poor, we can't score goals and the players brought in through the season have inevitably been nothing more than adequate. Even before any clear out or out of contract departures, the squad looks thin so we just need someone at the top to tell us how it's going to be from here.

I think that's part of the problem - not just with Albion, but fans generally, everyone needs to identify a scapegoat.
Depending on your point of view, Albion fans would probably cite the Chairman, the CEO, the Director of Football, the Coach or the players, although personally, I'm not looking for a head on a block.
I think it's simply a case of sorting it out and going again next season and assuming everything behind the scenes is fine, they should give OG his first full summer to create HIS squad.
Gratuitous change would put us back to square one.

Ok, I have had time to reflect on yesterday ...
I am still baffled by the lack of ambition on the park... 2 holding midfielders at home !! Ince bless him is an excellent prospect, but technically not good enough yet.....
Negative from the start ...
Lopez !! Why o why still play him... .? One paced at best and proving a luxury on the pitch we can't afford...
I don't agree we don't have attacking options, we just can't get bodies in the box, and forward and I assume this is why we keep going backwards instead of building forwards.. By the time the ball goes forwards we face a fully prepared defensive bank of 4 and 5 .....
So frustrated right now....
I am not normally pleased to see mass departures from the ground when things don't go well, and I definitely don't like to hear anyone booing the team, but yesterday I make an exception,.. Those in charge have to know our feelings and I hope they came across well... Particularly the departure after the second goal went in,..

We have to accept we are not going to the playoffs and try some different tactics and line ups.... Start building for next season now...

Best of a poor bunch was probably Stephen Ward, simply for effort, application & desire. He was alone in not looking beaten and right to the end was galloping from box to box and taking on defenders. The fact that he's left back speaks volumes for the efforts of the others although I did think Ince was good and couldn't see why he was sacrificed and actually, JFC worked hard and at least tried to play penetrating passes when the opportunity arose.
Didn't agree with JL getting MoM. He showed endeavour but sadly looked like a development squad player a little out of his league at present.
Too right - and quite apart from losing focus concentrating solely onto dreams of playoff positions we should be tying down assets like him ready for next seasons campaign. Reckon Wolves might want him back though as he has been a star turn all season - if they cant afford his return then we should act sooner than later before it turns into a Conway like situation ...

along with there useless scouting network, I really would like to know if the manager has had the last say, or is it a case of this is what we got oscar what do you think? take your pick from mid table mediocracy and see if you can get us in the prem, we are not going anywhere this season and probably next, Barber hinted as much in his last interview without actually stating it, I think we will lose our No 1 Goalie this end of season, I also think we will see some more youngsters, in a bid to reduce our player budget still further, it will be interesting to see if and what happens with fair play, my guess is the teams that have flouted the rules will all but get away with it, but we will see.

Why do people think no-one will be punished under FFP? The clubs all signed up to it and they are legally obliged to adhere to it. If clubs DO go unpunished then the powers-that-be have opened themselves up to legal challenges by those of us who have followed the rules.
