    1-1, ten to go. Played absolutely hopelessly again, Brewster with a stunning free kick has levelled it though.

    So your saying he's not tried to hit it off the bar on to the keepers back?

    I'm sure Lee Tomlin will learn it some day.

    Should have won but ultimately not enough quality in the final third. If we had two or three better players in important positions we'd have a chance of cracking top six but then I suppose that goes for half the league.

    Stunning free-kick? Lucky more like.

    I think if you tell any team who are 1-0 down at half time that they will play the next 45 minutes without a shot on target and come away with a draw they would be happy.

    Decent performance from us, we looked a lot sharper than the game against Derby.

    Not sure what Bradshaw offers upfront, can't hold the ball up, doesn't have the pace to run in behind, and isn't techincally amazing at this level.

    Could have had a penalty with another ref on another day for shirt pulling at corners and that last tackle, then again we could have had a red card on another day with another ref.

    Will Swansea be able to pay these Ayew big wages for next season as well? Neither team will be getting promoted this season, and if they did, would be coming straight back down quicker than Norwich!!

    To be honest, whilst we got a point which we didn't deserved, the performance today is really discouraging moving forward.

    There's a huge difference between us last year and this year with the fundamentals of movement and passing, that we need for our style of play.

    Whilst he started well, I think that he's perhaps benefitted from following on from Graham Potter and the longer it's gone on the more our midfield disappears in games.

    He's obviously had a difficult job in not having any money to spend, and his loan signings have helped us be competitive, but as a coach I think he's been bang average.

    I think he'll be sold on in the summer, for £10-15 million.

    Your midfield were terrible today, no creativity at all (I would be surprised if your expected goals was more than 0.5 which is shockingly low) and gave it away to us countless times which led to our goal.

    Your young defender didn't look anything special but difficult to tell on one game and Wilmot seems to have picked up a potentially long term injury.

    I felt if Brewster played for us, we would have won, as he had pace to run in behind. A couple of balls we played in for Bradshaw and his lack of pace was painful, a quicker player would have got in behind the defence for us today.

    Your manager will probably get sacked at some point next season. I've only watched your two games against us, in both games you have been poor, but the general feeling I read amongst your fans is that they aren't happy with him at all.

    Conor is a class player, but the system is just really poor.

    Cabango is only 20, and is physically really good, but not great on the ball. He's come in to the team a lot younger than expected. Our star centre back (and best player) Joe Rodon is injured, so usually he'd be cover, but I'm more than happy for him to get the remaining games with injuries as long term we'll need him.

    Yeah, we're lucky to have Rhian and next year we'll struggle as we've not got any money to sign a replacement.

    Quite possibly, it's going to be a big ask as half our teams are loans and we can't afford permanent signings. At some point expectation will be above reality, and there'll be a lot less patience if we're not playing possession football.

    Was very effective in Bowyer’s system. :)

    Only because I’m completely vindicated in the point I made that the move made no footballing sense whatsoever and was money orientated and not because Gallagher had the chance to work with some super coach.

    Hopefully not true about Willmott.

    Might need him next season.

    You aren't right about that though, because we haven't got any money.

    It's because he knew Cooper from a young age, and we've got some sort of relationship with Chelsea which has seen Guehi come here as well. Whether you agree with that or not, that makes far more sense then it being financially driven with money that doesn't exist.

    I said at the time it was daft for them to recall him from a club he was playing every week in, and that they were taking that for granted. But he has comes here and played every game as well, so it's hardly made much of a difference.
