In the main another solid performance really with the back four continuing tp look strong and settled.

United without doubt imo had the best of the first half Clarke had an easy as it gets opportunity to score and I felt us lucky to come off level BUT we did .

Second half was a different matter and we were the better side by some distance but, like United in the first half failed to capitalise on chances we had and on reflection a draw was about right.

The only down side ( apart from freezing my b@@@s off ) performance wise to me were Dowell and Murphy.

For whatever reason Dowell is really struggling at the moment and is a pale imitation of the player he looked when he first came but bear in mind the side ,again in my opinion, are playing much more solidly so perhaps he doesn't shine so much.
Either way I think we have better options bearing in mind he is likely to return to Everton at the end of the season.

Murphy doesn't look at the races to me and hasn't for a while be that for fitness reasons or something else. I wouldn't go as far as to say he doesn't look interested but he looks laboured and predictable most of the time.

Brererton had a typical " Brererton " game with lots of running and plenty of effort and endeavour but produced no real end result.

Clearly the striking situation remains an issue to be sorted down the line bujt meanwhile i think our best hope is for Brererton to nick a couple to boost his confidence.

However I am optimistic of things to come next season and as always . .

Karanka said he’s playing brereton to give the lad some experience. That’s all well and good but I wish he’d get it in another league.!

17 Mar 2018 18:42:02
Billy I can see where you are perhaps coming from but the
trouble is we don't have any other options. It would appear Vellios isn't going to figure

17 Mar 2018 19:02:08
He can’t get championship experience playing in league 1 or 2 can he?call him all you want he is by far better than Murphy,at least brereton puts himself about a bit.think brereton won more headers than Murphy today as well.

17 Mar 2018 19:24:45
Murphys aerial ability is terrible for a bloke his size

17 Mar 2018 20:18:14
If its a case of getting Brereton up to standard then its 2 up top for the rest of the season with Murphy or Vellios to give him the space and freedom.

FF79 will have another nose bleed with AK not playing 4-2-3-1 but by the end of the season he may just agree we have the right manager on the job?

17 Mar 2018 20:38:02
Haha, don't hold your breath.😁

Red credit for the defensive situation from Karanka.
Did tell you a while back that Eric would not play again and was right.
He's got the defensive situation under control mainly due to having a great defensive pairing in midfield of colback and Watson.
On paper and even if your being honest darikwa and Osborn wudnt be your first choice full backs?
But sometimes the best players don't make the best team.
I made a list of 23 players I think he will offload in the summer if he can.
And if he does and begs Burnley to buy Worrall for say 7 million collects a bit more for some of the others plus a bit of investment.
Sign two good strikers plus a ball playing midfielder who scores like jota then maybe were on to something
Tomlin for me is not a long term answer as there will be fitness issues where the likes of jota won't have those issues.
Away form is excellent the home form needs to improve.

17 Mar 2018 17:07:20
After the last five games how would you pick Dowell over Lolley?

Agree6 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 17:17:46
Because he hasn't played much football so there being careful same with tomlin

17 Mar 2018 18:45:28
Lolley and Tomlin have both been in full training all season,I beleive Everton insist on Dowell playing or they won,t pay his wagers,these type of loan may make sense financially but you end up playing a player who is contributing nothing to the team ,hope the new back room staff Don,t negotiate any more of these deals in the summer we don,t need them.

17 Mar 2018 19:38:07
Really Carlo? We’d be in a dark place without husband goals early doors. Great peice of business by warburton, no doubt now he is off the boil and shouldn’t start. Let’s hold off on the unnecessary criticism - he’s done oknfor us .

17 Mar 2018 20:06:01
Husband ! I meant Dowell obviously !

17 Mar 2018 20:07:12
Very few players can play 46 Championship games and keep a consistent level of performance let alone a very talented rookie.

So cut individuals some slack the ones you are picking on now gave us good service at the front end of the season and will chip in at the end. AK got rid of the ones that were not up to the mark.

Remember it's a marathon not a sprint and we are still on for 60+ points which everyone would have taken in August?

17 Mar 2018 20:13:28
If Big Sam is the man he should do a deal with AK to now recall Dowell and stick him in the Everton team until the end on the season.

He has lost Siggy so there is a spot in the team and if he is as talented as he seems he should rise to the top and we can give some of our youngsters a go?

17 Mar 2018 20:19:08
He done alright for us but is not doing alright for us now is my point ,but still gets picked for every match but one all season ,the lad is a good young player but is having a bad patch and AK should be able to omit him but looks like MW .,s deal as tied his hands which is making us look like we have only ten on the pitch .

17 Mar 2018 20:36:52
carlo do you mean he hasn’t been in 1 match day squad or hasn’t started in 1?

17 Mar 2018 17:00:39
Blackman the Blunts goalkeeper man of the match today so play nicely before the Foreoaner's have a pop at another 0-0.

Improvement going forward and tactical flexibility.

Onwards and Upwards.

We should expect draws away from home and wins at the CG, happy with that.👏

17 Mar 2018 16:57:27
That'll do for me! Inching to safety.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 17:12:24
Been safe for weeks,the worry of relegation dissapeared weeks ago those at the bottom have no chance of getting anywhere near what we have.
Probably someone will stay up with as little as 42 points that how bad they are.

17 Mar 2018 17:28:12
Yeah true, we should of let Sheff u win today and put pressure on the sheep

17 Mar 2018 20:02:19
I think they are more than capable of putting plenty of pressure on themselves.
Cant see them doing it this year

18 Mar 2018 10:37:18
Birmingham won today, we don't need a revival there.

17 Mar 2018 16:57:00
Wait for it. .

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 18:48:00
Only a matter of time

17 Mar 2018 19:38:50
Haha perks ! You know it pal!

17 Mar 2018 15:57:33
Tomlin on for Dowell sooner rather than later I hope. Maybe try Vellios with Brereton and take Murphy off - he seems to be anonymous at the moment. I'll be happy with a point anyway.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 16:58:30
Great result!!! We'll deserved!! No more the whipping boys!!! Uuuuu Reddddsss!!!

17 Mar 2018 15:11:23
YES👏👏🤩 99th minute equaliser for the stags ! Do one sadpies !😂😂😂😂😂

Agree7 Disagree3

17 Mar 2018 14:34:38
I don't believe it 442.
At last two up front.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Mar 2018 15:12:57
4 3 3 I’d say mate.

3 man midfield holding deep Colback Watson cash. Dowell floating - looks ok on paper

17 Mar 2018 15:39:36
From the commentary I hear Dowell is doing nothing but giving the ball away.

17 Mar 2018 15:51:47
It’s 4-4-2.dowell has been poor.
Ppl who are calling Murphy a donkey is bang out of order,what have donkeys done to be put in the same class as him?
Murphys agent must be the best in the land or warbo and his sidekick must be the most gullible people in the world.stuck with him for 3years yes that right 3 years he can’t run at 34 so what’s he going to be like when he’s 36-37?

17 Mar 2018 16:00:17
4-4-2 a good response to the Blunts 3 at the back to exploit space and lack of pace.
Has 1-0 all over it but which way?

17 Mar 2018 16:03:12
The strikers aren't getting any service from midfield so far.

17 Mar 2018 17:02:23
That’s really not relevant as the strikers wouldn’t know what to do if they got it. More than likely be offside or fall over!

17 Mar 2018 14:28:04
Strange to have Tomlin on the bench and both Brereton and Murphy on the pitch today?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2018 14:45:07
Maybe tomlin is still battered and bruised from being constantly fouled on Sunday.

17 Mar 2018 15:09:32
If 442 dosen,t work we,ll never see it again under AK ,he,s being very clever!

17 Mar 2018 12:43:18
How close is Ben Brereton to his peers Marcus Rashford & Tammy Ababram ?

Agree1 Disagree2

17 Mar 2018 12:56:14
Reckon we'll nick a draw today!!! Then a few Guinness later!!! 🎻🎻🎻🍻🍻🍻

17 Mar 2018 13:56:54
Don,t get caught nicking those Guinesses . 👮👮👮👀👀😡😡

17 Mar 2018 14:31:14
I fancy another clean sheet and maybe nick a goal late on

17 Mar 2018 17:04:20
Carlo, are you mental?

17 Mar 2018 17:15:21
Wouldn’t be close stood in a phone box
