Round Table Discussion: Robbed by the Baggies. Owl faced mastermind accused.

OK here is your challenge ladies and gents.  Pick over the bones of that without going over ground you have not covered at least 34 times before this season.

For me I can only laugh at our league season now, it has gone beyond rational explanation.  The only conclusion I can draw is that Kenny has secretly sold his immortal soul to a coven of Scottish hags who have cursed our league season in return for two cups.  I'd accept the trade if it comes to pass.

Or as the bloke behind me said - we should chop those posts down at the end of the season and burn them. They're hexed. 

So yes it was business as usual, stone wall peno denied, woodwork rattled, sitters missed, ricochets going every which way but in.  Can it really go on all season and be laid at the door of luck?  Is Kenny Dalglish, like Murakami's villain in "Kafka on the Shore" overseeing a secret operation to round up and torture black cats.

There are clearly weaknesses.  The defence, despite being generally solid has a tendency to switch off. The midfield does not control the game in the way which we are used to (though our two second stringers did today) and most crucially our attacking players seem singularly incapable of converting the chances they create into goals.
