Albion were left kicking themselves after losing at home to Wigan.

Now see how the Latics became the fourth away team to take the spoils at the Amex this season.

James McArthur’s brilliant curling finish and a Chris McCann header put them in charge before Leo Ulloa replied.

And, yes, that Rohan Ince blast as the hosts chased an equaliser was as close as it looks here – even closer in fact!

We out played them in every department except scoring goals, but, unfortunately, goals win matches. We are just another proven goal scorer away from moving up this table, 10 more goals would have got us 10 points or more and we would be pushing for an auto spot imo.
Most entertaining point for me was Buckleys attempt at a dive in front of the north stand, Tom Daley would have struggled to beat that one!
If, and it's a big IF, we actually find our scoring ability we can still make the playoffs imo, but what ever happens, big changes will happen this summer, Oscar will bring in 6/7 players of HIS choice for next season, keep the youngsters and those out of contract will have the choice of staying with us for sensible wages or go looking for a bigger pay packet elsewhere, but i think the second yr of FFP will see clubs all reducing fees/wages and we will be one step ahead of most in that respect.
Plenty of games left and I am still confident we can get back in the top 6, never a dull moment where the Albion are concerned! All starts again tomorrow with Hull then hopefully Poyet. UTA

We may be two thirds of the way through the season now but I actually think that we have only truly become accustomed to OG's methods in the last 3 matches.

There were moments of brilliance against Leeds where the team attackers as a "team" and played high up the park.
In the Hull match, that play was a little more prolonged and we attacked with some decent pace and again as a team.
And finally yesterday... Even more dominant and forward thinking... Very positive play and a definate step up in football.
The result wasn't as desired yesterday but I genuinely don't think that anyone could say that we are not playing our best football of the season right now.

Is it the better players getting fit? Do a degree "yes". I think there is more to it though and imho, if we can play like we have the last few games and maybe add a couple of decent bodies, I genuinely believe that the season isn't dead yet.

I think your 'last three matches' point is apposite. I fully expect three points at Millwall.
