    Juranovic was really poor tonight.

    Aye, he never recovered from Forrest no longer providing a lot of protection, he kept the same positions as he did the full game except the cover wasn’t there anymore.

    Thought he might have been carrying a knock tonight. Looked off the pace and saw him wincing at one point for no real reason.

    He was utter dog * in possession.

    I'd like us to sign another RB, if possible I'd like full backs with a bit of height, we need more people who can attack balls in the box. Both boxes.

    Very true, and some would do well to remember that before wiring into him.

    However, for balance, it also has to be said that other full-backs would have managed to adapted to that and been able to cope a bit better.

    Ultimately though, the lad’s 22, and up until summer, he’d had barely any football in a long while.

    We definitely need a LB though, to allow AR to rotate with Juranovic, who seems to have different weaknesses and strengths.

    Did not expect the lump on he’s getting, Juranovic was far worse pen aside.

    And then put in a goal scoring cross, that Turnbull didn't finish.
    He was completely fine tonight.

    What other full backs? Juranovic was having a nightmare over the other side and consistently playing hospital balls with chronic decision making, Boli’s useless, Taylor I don’t think is doing any better and * knows about Montgomery. And they’re mostly left backs there.

    Not other full-backs of ours, mate; just generally. Cutting him slack on the one hand, and admitting that he could be better in some ways on the other aren’t mutually exclusive things.

    Or….maybe the constant deifying of Ralston has blinded some folk to the fact that he has made a few errors over the piece and now people are seeing that he is still a flawed player.

    He's had far, far more good games this season than bad, there's definitely a plethora of people who want to jump in with the "Not good enough" excuse after he has 1 bad game in 10.

    He was * tonight, yet he's still done more than enough to be our first choice RB this season.

    It wasnt even close to being as bad as the player they want to replace him with :39:.

    People love getting back on a bandwagon. Dobbers.

    People also love making every excuse they can for the guy. Any time a goal or chance comes down his side it’s the whole “aye but he’s getting no support from the winger” patter. And let’s not kid on today was his first poor game this season.

    He lost his man for the first goal and made two * ups for the third goal. Juranovic was poor but he scored a goal and never directly cost us one. So saying Ralston wasn’t nearly as bad doesn’t really compute.

    Ralston was nowhere near as bad as Juranovic, just because his * ups didn’t lead to goals doesn’t mean they didn’t happen. A panenka off the bar doesn’t give you free licence to pass the ball to Leverkusen players directly in front of your goal.

    Agree to an extent but Juranovic only never cost us goals by pure dumb luck. I feel his mistakes were worse. Hard thing to argue I know.

    As opposed to the "he's not playing his natural position, he's quality though" argument? Getting tedious.

    Juranovic was our worst player tonight, he got really lucky several times. And it was about his decision making not the position he was playing.

    Penalty was outstanding but unless we want to only play him as penalty taker it's not really too relevant.
