Albion earn point at Burnley - in video

The Argus: Andrea Orlandi almost won it for Albion with this effort Andrea Orlandi almost won it for Albion with this effort

Albion held firm at Turf Moor last night – and could have nicked a win.

Now see how the woodwork and Tomasz Kuszczak saved them on occasion.

And how Tom Heaton came to the rescue in either half for the Clarets with his stops from the clean-through Kazenga LuaLua and Andrea Orlandi.

We will not get promoted unless we start scoring goals (plural). It is that straight forward. We are a negative team with a negative set up and I dont think it is the way to success.
We have a good defence, but we concede so few because we create so little going forward.
On paper, a point at Burnley seems okay, but we lost ground on the top 6, so a draw is not good enough.
Leicester who we beat 3 v 1, have won eight on the trot whilst we have won 3. They have scored 51 goals, we have scored 30, 3 less than Sheff Wed in 20th position.
We are 23 points behind the leaders because we play a negative game. Our emphasis is not to concede goals, and not on scoring more than the opposition.
It frustrates me no end, because there is quality in the team, but until we change our system and set up in a way that will create us more scoring chances, we will never achieve promotion.
An interesting stat from last night's games was that one Championship side, Derby County, had 37 attempts on goal.
That's more shots on goal in one game than we've had in our last three league matches.
It says it all really.
It's not rocket science to appreciate that to win games you have to score more goals than the opposition, so let's see an emphasis on scoring goals as opposed to keeping blank sheets

I'm concerned that we seem to have returned to the goal drought that was fixed with the signing of Ulloa. With his current inability to put the ball in the net, the signing of a recognised striker is even more imperative (and not as cover but as our leading front man). Work rate is all well and good but it's goals that count - this was always my problem with CMS.

Well said fratsomrover. Attack is always the best form of defence in my professional opinion and exactly how I set my teams up to perform. Trouble is they never follow my instructions.

Me too, but it does help if you have a couple of decent strikers to feed off one another.
One lone forward foraging away on his own is never going to trouble a couple of decent central defenders.
I watch teams like Southampton getting 5 or 6 players regularly in their opponents penalty area in open play, but never see more than 2 or 3 down here. As I say, I find it rather frustrating.

I cant understand that there are still some who are putting pressure on our coach to secure a play off position,the team are nowhere near Premiership
standard but we can with a few decent signings in the summer put together a side that could play attractive and entertaining matches in the Championship at home,whilst fielding a more defensive team for away matches,this way we could keep attendances close to 30,000.
