I came out at half time cuz I just couldn't face any more, SHAME ON ME.

This is not to criticise you in particular, but I will never understand this. Teams in worse positions have come back and done well: football can easily change.

Ayew is so much more effective from the left. For me, when Ross is fit it's between him and Jack for the 10. Ayew left all day long.

How can they have no fitness to finish one week and finish like that the next week?

Apart from the Substance Abuser missing out, its almost the same team...

Good comeback in the last 20 minutes. All over them. Before that we were pish but then again if our manager insists on not playing a system, and playing weirdly imbalanced lineups, we'll be struggling. Thankfully although we seemed to have a ridiculous amount of attackers it worked on this occasion.

But RDM seriously needs to start playing some sort of coherant system for 90 minutes. I think Tish showed today that he'll be key.

After what you've been subjected to for God knows how many years, I reckon you & the faithful deserve a medal for going! I'm sure you'd have gone even earlier if somebody had said: "If you go home now, we'll get a point".  ;)

Nice to score as opposed to concede at the end

Surely it just goes to prove we have some properly talented players: but don't have a manager who has a clue about how best to utilize said talent in the context of a team? I'm very relieved we came back to get a point tonight, but it seemed it was in spite of what RDM may - or may not - have been doing all week at BMH.
