    It’s criminal that the players didn’t know what they were meant to be doing after the substitution.

    We need a mass outbreak of COVID at the club, one that means we can’t play any of our remaining games. Probably the only way we would have a chance of not staying up but I’m sure that **** masters would still find a way to relegate us!

    He's done that before. Think it was last season with Willems.

    A mess?-perhaps - however after watching your game there was nothing in the performance to suggest that Bruce has lost the dressing room. The game mirrored your performance at Old Trafford . Although not as frantic I felt that you were playing with the 'choke out', your domination of the first half could easily have ended in 3-1. I am not a fan of Shelvey but on his day, he can spot a pass as good as anyone and so it was with the pass that found Almiron ,in acres of space and with plenty of time, he should have scored. It was a bad miss. As for the second half it was pretty even but, as against Man. U your first half efforts took their toll and you visibly tired during the last quarter and only a reflex save from your 'keeper kept the score at 1-1 which made up for the effort in the first half that should have been a regulation save. Was it one point earned or two points dropped? Out of curiosity who saw the potential in Joelinton that warranted an investment of 40 mil ? Whenever I have watched him he has seemed low on confidence and, on Saturday, out of luck. he had a decent strike on Saturday which took the combined efforts of 'keeper and defender to keep it out, such is life¬

    The least said about our game the better. After five minutes, with Palace sticking 10 behind the ball with two banks of four for good measure 0-0 was always the call. Palace had three shots none on target, we had sixteen shots and four on target. Our next three are against sides that will not shut up shop. A win against Spuds on Thursday will see us leap above you on GD - we live in hope!

    We're finished we've got probably around 6 players that are premier league players and we've lost 5 of them long term

    No Wilson, no Maximin, no almiron, no schar, no Manquillo and even Manquillos back up right back is injured.

    Nufc won't pick up a single point without those players.

    Joelinton is improving if you can't see that I can't help you. His miss - a great block - was so unfortunate and most importantly he's getting in the right places now - he wasn't last year. His pressing was good, and his defensive work is so much better than Gayle's, especially on the evidence the week before. His link up is improving and he gives us an out ball to hit. Out wide he's a lot more effective than through the middle (what position do you think he is naturally?).

    Like a lot of foreign signings he is struggling to settle in and then there's the pressure that comes with the price tag and the number on his back but it's not his fault we gave him the biggest number at the club and paid probably 10 times to much for him - I keep saying someone needs to look into that deal and find out what went on there because someone needs sacking if that was a genuine recommendation that a scout gave, otherwise needs a fraud team looking at it to see where the brown paper bags went.

    He is obviously lacking confidence at the moment but it took Almiron 12 months to even find the net and now look at him, probably out best player this season. Loads of fans were winging that he was a waste of £20m blah blah blah and now he's a fans favourite. Will Joelinton ever get to that level I doubt it but will he get better? Almost certainly. Honestly think he is improving and will continue to do so if played correctly - as an inside forward, judge him not on the 38 games he got last year as a lone striker with no support from the other 10 players 50 yards off him. He won't be a player to score 15-20 goals a year he's a 1 in 6-8 type player if he gets a run out wide. How many games has he actually played out wide for us?

    Should he be in the squad if everyone's fit? No! Would I take him out wide a head of Atsu or Ritchie? Yes!

    Oh god. After you mentioned Atsu I realised that he's a named man.

    We are saved!!!
