Biggest mistake from bilic was taking ayew off!ludicrous. The only player on either side looking like he was gona score! Why change it? Noble didn't have to come on. Calleri off push ayew up front. Masaku was our best player first half, I'm assuming he was injured but we are talking bilic here. Cresswell was struggling. Nort, did well so did Reid, ayew was dangerous, and I liked fernandes, kouyate in the middle of lots and Lanzini was neat and tidy. Bilics second half subs killed us attackingly. Calleri can't shot or even use his left. Rabona was pathetic.

Calleri can't use his left foot??
Have you had a gander at Ayew?
We paid £20 million for someone that can't use his right foot....Have a look at him dribbling the ball, he's f**ked if it's on his right side - Remember the sitter he missed against Leicester for one, on his right side, a simple tap in, skied it over the bar and cost us a point.

Irons it's not just the case that calleri can't kick with his left it's the fact he wouldn't even try, would rather do the Rabona instead! If ayew skies one with his at least he is willing to try. I'm not sure calleri even has a right foot based on his shooting today! It's was the worst piece of shooting I've ever seen and it happens every time he plays. I didn't see ayew said sitter I was on holiday.

Worst shooting performance you've ever seen? Not for me, I'm old enough to remember people like Sandy Clark and John Radford....Heh.
Thing is, we paid £20 million for Ayew Calleri is on loan - Ayew will chip in with the odd goal here and there but is he worth the money we paid for him? I don't think he is, you'd expect more than a trier for that sort of outlay (and that is taking into account his early injury problems since signing for us).
Calleri will go at the end of the season no doubt, he looks too lightweight for the Prem but I think it's obvious to one and all we are crying out for a quality fox in the box striker badly....I can't remember the last one we had....

I think Ayew is worth 20 mill. But only because 20 mill doesn't get you very much at all nowadays. I'm like you and feel all pro footballers should be able to kick with their left foot. Jesus they have all that spare time in a day but won't use it to develop their weak foot! Only my opinion but I do feel ayew will be an asset for us. He will score goals and will be dangerous. 20 mill is the minimum we should be paying for players. Some of the teams around us are happy to play that for full backs!

i forgot about the goal scoring machines Radford and Clark :o)

I think Ayew will come good but Calleri wont make a striker for as long as he has a hole in his backside! The sad thing is, as previously posted, it looks like Slav is going to buy him!

I just dont see how a premiership side can function like this how long has Carroll been here now 5 ,6 years and every season he gets crocked ,what a signing he would have been if he was consistently free from injury

Yes hes important,when hes fit!!But it aint gonna happen,keiron Dyer springs to mind,sakhos the same!!
We are absolutely crying out for a goal scorer,& to be fair Ayew is at least getting efforts in every game now...
Slav might as well give fletcher a go,he cant be any worse than Calleri (granted he trys,but he couldnt hit a cows arse with a Banjo!!!)

Defensively we are looking sound now,fonte ginge & Winnie are doing well together...Masuaku is the bloody find of the century imo...I was one of Nords biggest critics,but he is really solid (in his rightfull position),him & Kouyate work really well together..Adrian is a better keeper than randy full stop!!

on the plus side I like the 3-5-2. we look solid and a lot stronger. on the negative this obsession with on loan calleri ahead of fletcher? why? people say he works hard nd has good movement? 2 starts and 0 shots on target says hes pants. snodgrass isnt a,striker slaven ffs even I know that.

Bilic is no better than grant, just has a bit more luck at times. Even when he hits on something right he messes it up! Like has been said we look solid. All he needed to do was change calleri who is not a proper footballer. No football brain etc. yet he reduced us from a team with a bit of momentum and looking good for a goal to destroying our realistic chance of getting 3 pts. So we are still haven't reached 40 pts. Bet he brings back some of the others v Spurs. Byram, snodgrass, noble and/or feghouli. Bilic you idiot keep the same team just change the striker!

Sorry red neck but im not bilics biggest fan but to say hes no better than grant is ludicrous.

It's all about opinions Fred but I stick to what I said. The bloke is so inept it embarrass the club every game. He is very much a part of the mess the club is in at the moment. Offers nothing, and gets too much slack as he had a short stint with the club before high tailing it off to eat toffee. Never thought I'd say it but allardyce knocks spots off bilic! Allardyce did the same with far less.

the MOTD 'highlights'. Nothing shown of the two challenges on Kouyate that should have meant a sending off.

Remember, all he needs to do with Palace is guarantee safety. And there's a lot of other teams he can do that for when he gets fired next season.
