We have come back from 0-2 before, its can happen and we could salvage a draw. Ossie needs to come on, Billy off and we need to be patient and keep the ball on the floor

Our passing hasn't been too bad - it's the crossing that's been appalling. We must have attempted about twenty balls into the box and failed to find a blue shirt every time.


To be fair to the Brummies, they have a game plan of laving 9 players in their own half to squeeze space and stop our players playing - and then braking with a few when they do dare cross the halfway line. Problem is, they've done that twice and scored both times!

If Moyes makes no changes, I will be fuming.
Osman on for Bilyaletdinov Peinaar on the left.

He'll give them a rocket up the arse at half time and give them 10 mins to get back in it 1st I reckon

Birmingham's tactics are ugly and boring, but they are working well.

They're riding the pressure and countering at pace. But to be fair, if we were playing like we have been recently their defence wouldn't have held out and their counterattacks wouldn't have been so productive.

Now, even if we play great 2nd half, we've given them an easy job. All they have to do is sit back and not concede twice

Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

There's the problem at the moment we cant keep it on the ground, we keep reverting to hoof ball and every hoof goes to one of them.

It's not Moyes' fault. The players are being shite.

No effort, the passing is terrible, they don't look up for it and it seems that hoofball has returned.

Oh and Distin has been calamitous, I'm sad to say.

WTF?!? When we lose its the players fault, when we win Moyes is a genuis?!

He has a lot to answer for this shite today
Murray won't ever win a slam. Mentally not good enough

Coleman and Vaughan should be on immediately.

I'm tired of seeing the ball go to Neville only for him to either stop, wait a few seconds and pass it backwards or hit it long.

I guess we'll really see if Arteta on the bench was just a silly PR stunt.

Who says we don't keep the ball on the floor? Have you seen Baines from set pieces? The ball does not get above ankle height.

Alan Harper: "I made my debut at Goodison against Stoke and was standing in the tunnel waiting to go onto the pitch. Z cars started playing on the PA and I heard the crowd roar. If I could bottle a moment and save it forever, then that would be it.

When did I say Moyes was a genius?

The last two games have been great tactics from moyes and great efforts from the players. Moyes has used the same tactics today, bu the players aren't performing.

Let's see what Moyes does at half time. If he doesn't make subs, makes the wrong subs or we still play shit, then he's done bad. Until the end of the game, you can't really judge him.
