    Shows what a knife edge this league is, hitting the woodwork that many times and being 1-1! I thought we deserved it, but there were spells where you could see why we had struggled at times previously.

    The Swans goal summed up why we hadn't won for so long, and that has to be sorted out, smallest player on the pitch getting between CBs in the box is Sunday league stuff.

    Felt for Arnie with the card and Shaq, those could cause us issues moving forward. Allen has carried us at times and he deserved a goal for his efforts and relieved Bony is off and running but he needs to up his game. Sobhi was excellent, I thought?

    That was Routledge's first headed goal in 263 League matches

    I'm looking forward to seeing more of Sobhi. Now Arnie is banned atleast it will give us a chance to see what he can do (trying to be positive here). I've been quite impressed with the bits I've seen of Sobhi.

    Words like "straws" and "clutch" came to mind when I read Smithers' post......
