Positives today, thought Ntcham was excellent the first half and covered lots of ground. Think he tired in 2nd half but first half he was brilliant.

Gordon injury a perfect example of the board resting on their laurels, Should have had a younger more competitive keeper in to challenge him a long time ago.

Ajer answered his critics well today, dealt well with a few awkward situations and read the game extremely well for a 19 year old.

Likewise Dembele didn't do any better than Odsonne who has had a lot of abuse, but Dembele seems to get away with it a little more.

Should dembele not get away with a little more? A player who scored so many goals last season and at some point will make us a massive profit . So many fans in here so negative . Staggering anyone can compare edouard to dembele . Short memories.

Dembelle just needs game time to get his sharpness and confidence back, maybe now with Griff's injury he will get a few full games under his belt, .

Craig Gordon getting clattered is because of the board? I know the board rightly get some stick but that's honking patter Tesla.

Kevbhoy - aye that's what I said. Point is we sell Forster for over £10mil

We bring in a keeper for free who should have been retired due to injuries. (fair enough as a short term option)

then the board decide to keep him long term (even though he should have been replaced long ago)

Craig Gordon missed 2 full years due to knee injuries before he came to us. Now he has another knee injury.

In other words we kept and old goalkeeper with weak knees and getting older doesn't help that. Rather than replacing him with a better, fitter keeper the board remain with the cheap option.

It was nothing to do with weak knees. It is a total different injury to the one that he had before. He was injuries after the full weight of a centre back crashed into his knee. Now I ain't a Gordon fan but this guy has helped us win trophies and all that. The manager ok'd a new contract so i don't see how that's the boards fault.

That's MD first game since the 30th of December and you expect him to be in top form?

Liamlarsson, you have just misread what I said. Yes Dembele does deserve slack. My point is that Edouard didn't deserve slaughtered as he's not had a consistent run in the team.

Gladly so as he isn't our player but this season Edouard has played less and scored more than Dembele.

Not critical of Dembele but some fans very harsh on Edouard.

Kev83 It doesn't matter if it's not the exact same injury. Fact is he has had issues with his knees, both knees going back almost 8 years ago and isn't getting any younger.

So him injuring a knee is no surprise. Keepers get knocked like that weekly. Your chance of injury increases when your knees are weak.

The board took a gamble originally when they got him and he has done well, but in no way should he have been our main choice.

Tesla's point is not it was the boards fault he got injured, rather they haven't prepared for that eventuality and even when he was playing shite we only had Dorus as back up.

That is the boards and Rogers fault.

Unless of course anybody thinks Dorus has been a good signing. If they do then god help us.
