Given the amount of attempts on goal, we HAVE to be testing goalkeeper more than we are. So many shots are wayward and thrashed well wide or over. I don't expect 31 shots to turn into 31 goals, but you have got to make the keeper produce at least 5-6 save from 31 attempts.

I think an attacking performance doesn't full under the same scrutiny as defending. When a team concedes a goal there is always a full examination of what went wrong, you need to do the same when a team doesn't not convert any attempts in such a one sided game.

These guys are professional. Put simply: they spend all week practicing to kick the football at the goal. Players like Max, Wilf and Wickham have got to show more composure.

Sensible comment. And the best outcome would be to get our existing strikers finding the net.

The best outcome would be to sell Benteke for around 15m and get a decent striker on loan for the season.

I would say there's a bigger picture to this come the end of the season if the striking issue isn't sorted. For me there's very little concern about relegation, we are 7 points clear of the bottom 3 who are all looking desperately poor (plus another couple of sides just above that area who are also looking poor). We are 9 points short of 7th place, a gap which would be virtually zero had we even taken a tiny percentage of the many good chances missed.

The longer term problem if we don't see progress in the forwards area is that the likelihood of losing star players becomes much higher. If we continue like this, how long is Wilf going to give us? Luka, Van Aanholt etc etc. A 6th and probably 7th season consecutively is a great achievement, don't get me wrong, but we all surely know that this is a very good team with one specific area that is badly letting us down, and therefore I feel that we are underachieving currently.

It would be great to see Wickham and Benteke back to full fitness and confidence, but I think that we will definitely need some kind of reinforcement in this area in January because it would be a surprise to see both fully firing.

it's a very good point that Wilf is going to get fed up without having a proper striker to play with, he works so hard and for nothing.

7 from those 5 games is decent? 8 is probably the utmost we could have expected tbh.

Expected a loss at Man City and Leicester.
Anything but a loss away at Brighton.
And wins against Cardiff and West Ham (albeit away, Iíd take a point?)

Couple with the fact we created more than enough to win today, 9 from that would have been more than expected.
Hopefully today's chances created will keep us up come may then.

Playing devilís advocate, a few of our players make promising runs into space and Wilf is too busy turning back on himself to beat another defender.

Itís frustrating for his teammates and frustrating for those watching him.

I want him to be the best but he is his own worst enemy.

There's a reason why I have him on ignore. Too much vitriol and spite in his posts.

I would like to think he is a normal human being outside of the BBS though.

It's hardly surprising we struggle in front of goal given we don't have a single player in the squad who has any sort of scoring pedigree - bar Benteke who's lost whatever he had (hopefully he recovers it).

We need to bring in firepower urgently. Then we'd be a reasonably comfortable mid table team.
