Echo Jury: Our jury of fans were upset by a poor display

Have your say

PAOLO Di Canio says he likes attacking football and I think supporters do in any club. But when the opposition are scoring two or three goals against you each week and your team are not scoring any back, then you have to think about keeping clean sheets, writes Arthur Butler.

Things were going not too bad even though we went one goal down to Sessegnon.

It was when we made our last substitute and Steven Fletcher took a tumble in the opposition penalty box and had to be carried off that the real trouble came.

We had no more subs left to bring on, so we had to play with 10 men for the last 15 minutes – and West Brom scored another two goals.

I can not say much for the team performance or any of the players except Lee Cattermole. He came on for the last 20 minutes and looked eager and sharp.

He will make a big difference in midfield in the hard games we have got ahead of us.

These jury comments were written before Paolo Di Canio was sacked last night.
