Straight after the match! 90% were already home I would have thought. Lol
One of those games where everyone was below par, 1 or 2 and you can get away with it, but yesterday they were all off colour, are they training to much and leaving all the effort on the training ground, who knows?
Some fresh faces around the corner (Hoskins and Cms), both of whom have a point to make and should liven it up a bit and get Orlandi back as well and things should pick up, it's not all over yet but it wouldn't be the Albion if we didn't muck it up every now and then, keeps it interesting but would like to be entertained on the way.

I think a lot of Albion fans need to take a step back and realise how far we have come, there is a need to understand the plan for the future.

Oscar is in his first season in charge, we still have a huge chance of the play offs, one defeat does not end all hope, yes there are improvements which could and perhaps should be made, we all have our own opinions, some good some bad, but at the end of the day Tony Bloom has trusted Oscar to get it right and lets be frank, first season in charge he has done a very good job which can only bode well for the future.

If we dont make it this season, then not too worry I know it will happen sooner or later, everything is in place to achieve promotion, our facilities, our youth system, our board all bleed blue and white, we are working within budget, we are running BHA correctly.

One defeat against doesnt deserve the negative reaction it has got, for heavens sake, the way Oscar is on the touchline has no impact what so ever, it didnt against QPR, Leicester, what he says in the dressing room does.

Personally I hope the quality of player we bring into the club improves, hate referring back but Poyet was class at this, this year I feel we arent as strong in this department, (YET), I am not the biggest fan of Nathan Jones, feel a number 2 of some standing would benefit the club more, but in all of this I trust Oscar to sort, thats what he has been employed to do and im my opinion has carried it out very well, lets not forget he missed pre season and its his first season in charge.

More pure rubbish.Hoskins was pulled from the 18 because of pain his in again.Just dream world stuff.The team is set up to play 60% of the game in its own half making the defence look like good players.That will change big time next season without Tk between the sticks.Like him having a bad game yesterday helped prove.

So Burnley & Bournemouth have done really outstanding with not even half the crowds,and not even half the wage bill then.Not having a dig at you the last part of your post was very good.

Neville says...

The club plan is for BHAFC to be a Premiership side within 5 years,fact. The stadium,training facility on the way and sponsorship deal with American Express are all Premiership standard,unfortunate
ly we are in the Championship at present.
The end of season regardless of what league we end up in will result in a massive clearout. Most players are out of contract or their loan period finishes and a massive rebuild is necessary,for fans to automatically think OG will be vying for automatic promotion next season are not being realistic at all.
A lot of fans expected the Barcelona connections to provide some exciting talent but so far nothing and not likely in current FFP situation.
Next season I feel will be make or break for OG, if he continues to put the emphasis on not losing rather than trying to win from the outset,especially at home then something has to give and we cannot have another season with so few goals scored.
OG has done reasonably well in my opinion but I am far from convinced about his philosophy of attacking teams.

There are more clubs with 5-year plans than there are promotion places Neville, and clubs complying with FFP will need to re-assess what can realistically be achieved.
The fantastic support will give us an advantage. The number of season ticket sales is remarkable considering Oscar's playing philosophy. I suppose that a new stadium and training facilities compensate to some extent for what is happening on the pitch.
What is certain is that the system will not change, so everything depends on better quality players (or improved players) to make a difference to next season's campaign.
Should Oscar be trusted to take the club forward?
In my opinion he has shown very little talent for making the most of his playing resources. There is also little sign of the versatility required to deal with the various challenges posed by opposing teams.
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the talent we have available could be managed a lot better.

The criticism of Oscar's philosophy is crazy, IMO.

60% possession, wherever it is, has given us the best defensive record in the league. It's not the best defence so the possession is crucial not something we need or want to change.

All we lack, as has been the case since the start of the season, is a real creative midfielder. Someone who can pick out passes, beat a man or 2 to open up opportunities when the opposition have men back defending. Orlandi is the closest we have at the moment. He is good but has been injured a lot and hasn't been able to play centrally as often as we'd like. Put someone like Vicente in this team in front of 2 defensively minded midfielders and there would be a marked improvement. The problem being these real quality players are rare and therefore either in the Prem already or very expensive!

We have lost several games where we 'enjoyed' over 60% possession, because we were unable to score.
Oscar's philosophy as stated by him is substantially different to what happens on a matchday.
If the system is ineffective because we need a creative midfielder, and such players are unobtainable, what is the point of persevering with it?
