We haven't got the basics right for years.

I felt we deserved the win, but then needed a little fortune to get it.

Their keeper was at fault to give us the scoring chance, but alot had to go right for Kodija to take it. Needless to say it was a cracking finish, reminiscent of Tony Daley's versus Everton in a 2-0 win in the late 1980s (this has been pointed out on social media). Obviously, if he keeps up this form we'll A) all be very happy, and b) be telling the PL clubs where to go.

Jordan Ayew, on the otherhand, is frustrating me. For every one thing he does right, there's a minimum of five that he gets wrong. A missed chance shortly after we'd gone ahead, a corner that hits the first defender on the shins, others that I don't instantly recall now. I think if he could be less greedy that would go someway to lessening the frustration.

Meanwhile Albert Adomah has impressed me recently. For me, he was our best player versus Wolves and again looked full of energy once he'd appeared yesterday. I'm told he had a great game at Reading in midweek too.

And so onto Birmingham City The Shower of Shit next week. Keeping my feet on the ground I'd be happy with a point. That said, if we do win that won't only be three wins on the spin for the first time in a long long time, but they'll all have been achieved without Jack Grealish anywhere near the squad. This would make Grealish's selection in future difficult to justify.

That's a decent summing up of where we're at right now Chris.

I think Ayew is a threat, but he needs to be more focussed on team play. Adomah is looking like our first proper wide man since Young and Downing. I also think Grealish will have to be patient, and when he get's his chance he needs to roll both his socks and sleeves up and put in a shift. We can't play McCormack and Grealish at the same time.

Kodjia is looking as though he could be priceless.

I've said it before and I'm saying it again but RDM made a mistake bringing Grealish back straight after his club suspension. Before that, we had got a fighting point against Newcastle and Ayew had performed well there in the left wing position given straight back to Grealish.

Now, we've found a new way of playing that works but I'm not sure where Grealish can fit into that and whose place he deserves to take. Kodjia, Gestede and Ayew started on Saturday and Albert Adomah is making a strong case for inclusion. There's McCormack too. In midfield, there are three industrious players that are doing a job asked of them that Grealish can't do. He will need to bide his time and work hard.

Can't argue with any of the comments above.

Bruce has had selection for the centre backs made for him and Baker & Chester have done well. Amavi had his best game for a while.

I still think the midfield may get over run by better teams but on Saturday they performed well, worked hard and limited their chances. There are still a few niggling mistakes that give away possession but 2 wins & 1 draw from the last 3, what do I know.

Fulham look to be about where we were at when Lambert decided to change to tippy tappy possession football. Loads of sideways and backward balls with no goal scoring outlet.
