    I wouldnt change too much but how much longer do we give Wes before he takes a rest? With him or without, I would like to see 2 strikers and 1 winger..
    I think Douglas o er Marvelous tomorrow and Davis, Jota and Connor with Jack pushing up??

    Could work bongo n would certainly free jack up to support wes as he looked like he was getting forward a lot more against hammers.

    Personally I wonder whether wes should be dropped tbh, just donít think heís worked hard enough since the Everton game imo

    Can't agree with you I'm afraid mate. I think he has been involved in holding the ball up and should really have scored with that header last week. He needs a season to settle and another season to be judged... Hopefully in the prem

    I'd go with Bongo's team.

    Honestly donít think a season to settle n a season to be judged cuts the mustard personally mate as surely thatís a massive gamble on our pl safety paying 22 mil knowing that we wonít get best out of him for 2 seasons

    Hmmmmm.......all a bit stunned? Let’s hope we’re playing 11 men next week.

    Fuming about this game tbh, played really well first half and did great to score a minute after the pen. Sat way too deep then and they'd been coming back into it leading up to their pen - Smith is meant to be a student of the game, should have spotted the danger & made a change in the middle of the park.

    Mings - love the bloke but what is he thinking? Failure to track the run into the box, we switched off, lost our way and got punished, you could just sense what was going to happen. Yes Arsenal away is a free hit but we have to (quickly) learn to manage games from a winning position - it reminded me of the Leicester game under Sherwood.

    I Stopped watching at 1-1, i just knew what would happen, we looked really good in the first half, but they had Jack doing the wing cover rather than el ghazi, this makes no sense! it's like owning a racehorse and using him as a cart horse. El Ghazi is excess baggage at the moment, would rather play two defensive midfielders and play Jack and Super John slightly wider. Gutted. Think the refs have got all three sendings off wrong and they are ruining the game.

    The Independent comfirmed my thinking when I saw the highlights the last goal should never have stood because the wall should be at least a metre away from ours, we should have been awarded a freekick

    VAR and referees all need a talking to. The VAR ref said he wouldn't have overturned the decision whether the on field ref had given a penalty or not. So, what's the point then?

    And yep, the new rules with the wall only Tyrone knew the new law by the looks of it.

    Amazingly bad luck for the Villa... Or maybe its any "small team"

    11 negative decisions VAR has played a part in, and 1 positive. (in terms of goals scored)

    Yep - now I'm fuming even more after reading that about the last goal plus their handball stopped what looked like shot that would beat the keeper.
