I don't think his good play elsewhere makes up for such a failure like that, especially with two players to his right. What was he doing?
Have you seen Agueros miss this afternoon?

Impressive that we have three players in the top ten. Roy likes 'em to work.

I hate to admit it, as I often feel hes been criticised because hes not glam in anyway, but it is true. He isnt the same player. Unless hes been carrying an injury (as the sluggishness not misses could be explained by this), then maybe hes had his best days.

Macca is a great player for us, but we already have a big box full of lung-busting midfielders who work so very hard. We all know Roy loves players who work very hard and that's what he brings to a typical Roy side.

He has always had this ability to ghost into space, or make great runs behind, then 8 times out of 10, lacks the technical ability to capitalise on it. He is much more effective when getting on the end of a cross from a late run than getting it tight in the box and doing something with it.

Someone said to me once that he has the brain of a great number 10, and the technique of a pure DM. But I guess if he had it all, he wouldn't have been at Palace for so long.

I guess it all depends on what Roy wants to do. And he wants hard work from the middle and our wide players to win us games.

I thought he was popping up everywhere against West ham. Looked knackered when he came off. Played well as usual but that miss was one of the worst Ive ever seen even before factoring in two players were completely free in the middle

So he had a miss. He also made up for it with the assist for wilfs goal. Saturday was a good result.

We went above Brighton.

Watched the whole match replay and apart from that miss macarthur had a good game
I think meyer might have struggled if he had started the match

McArthur works hard and obviously is a fans favourite but for me we need more quality. If there is Luka and Kouyate in there surely we don't need another workhorse. Meyer, for me, in behind Batshauyi then Zaha and Townsend on the wings......we could be dangerous

He could have teed up Benteke for at least 2 goals, actually he could have teed up most of the team in the pic above.

But no, lets say Benteke is sh1t eh as apart from 2 open goals that would have won us the game he played well etc etc....

If macarthur was just a workhorse he would not have played in the premier league for years he has decent technical ability and touch as well

Players like McArthur are good squad players and looked very comfortable in the first team alongside players as good as Cabaye and RLC. This season we have Kouyate, Luka and McArthur with players like Schlupp filling in there. McArthur's limitations will be exposed with that midfield around him. Sadly, Meyer hasn't been the player we thought he would be - he has that touch of class that we lack in the middle of the park. Hopefully, Meyer will get acclimatised to the Premier League - if he does, he will make the other two midfielders he plays alongside look better.

very true, it could still have been a draw, but it's annoying a player with his years of experience could be so daft as to hit that woeful shot when he had PVA standing unmarked 2 yards out
