    Superb win considering we keep giving teams a head start.

    Why is our defending so bad?

    Surely a world class defender like Bilic can coach them better than this!

    I suppose you can’t polish a turd.

    Heard the post match interview with Bilic. Talked a lot of sense. Love the passion!

    It's very admirable the number of times that we have come from behind to win or draw but we cannot continue to concede the type of goals that we are. When we come up against the stronger clubs we will come unstuck. Sides don't have to create to score against, we do it for them. I thought that Bartley had improved but he was poor today. At one point he was gesticulating to others and didn't notice that the ball had been passed to him. Fortunately, another defender came to his rescue. We were 3-2 up at the time.

    Yes, we are entertaining to watch but we have to cut out these poor goals. QPR next Saturday are on a good run and we will have be at our best to beat them. When will Hegazi return as we certainly need him. If we can cut out these 'give away' goals we will be a hard side to beat. I don't want to sound a pessimist as we are still unbeaten but I do feel that these are fair comments.

    Really don’t like a ‘downer’ on a player, but Bartley is dire. Not a bad header, but positionally poor and catastrophic when playing it out.
    Again we saw his open hands gesticulating endeavouring to apportion blame elsewhere. The sooner Hegasi is fit the better.
    He was at fault for both goals.

    Bartley has definitely improved since last season but Hegazi is a much better player and presence. Already singled out a few goals that we wouldn't have conceded from crosses if Hegazi had been in the middle.

    Thought it was a strange decision to leave out Diagana (still do) and also no place for Edwards. But in Slaven we trust. Austin had his best game.

    The defence aren't getting a great deal of help from the midfield. Doesn't matter at the moment whilst we keep winning but it could easily later in the season. Barclay's lack of awareness was the problem with one of the goals, too many short passes at the back inviting the opposition to come and take the ball off us was the problem with the other.

    When are we going to stop this silly tippy-tappy play in the penalty area, the goal came from Bartley taking a short free-kick to Johnstone who gave it straight back to Bartley who then presented it to Huddersfield, result GOAL, this wasn't the first time this season that this has happened so for goodness sake cut it out

    Got to agree with you here Prando 100%. I would get Hegazi back in for Bartley and look at giving Bond a go as Johnstone looked edgy all match. Livermore goes missing far too many times than he’s there and personally don’t rate him.

    Just enjoy the win! Four goals! Really good comeback and better still, not on the edge of my seat in stoppage time worrying if we’ll concede an equaliser! We moaned enough about boring football under Pulis so just enjoy an attacking approach now. As for Diangana, maybe Bilic doesn’t want him to look too good and get recalled to West Ham in January, as happened with Barnes last season.

    Good post ....and in agreement with it....
    Hegazi...has to be close to fit by now surely...
