    What's happened to our inverted fullbacks? Not seen any of that tonight.

    This is a sign we need more signings in January of decent quality to compliment the guys who started the game. Lack of proper quality in the squad has caused this but it's been a great effort.

    Lets be honest it was 3 goals conceded but realistically could have been 6 or 7 ffs.

    Thought Ralston was pish tonight.

    That would have given angels reputation a massive boost if he held onto the win.

    But, Hart kept us in it for so long.

    The league is more important than this..without a doubt.

    Taking Kyogo and Jota off for me was the correct call here especially vs Aberdeen.

    And the players on the pitch should have kept it more tight for the last 10 mins..we aint got that in defence though..they are shambolic.

    Subs have killed us hard to blame the manager though as the squad is * poor that said Jota or Kyogo should have stayed on

    We need to bring in at least five quality players in January as that bench isn't good enough and we can't defend a * lead in Europe especially with eight minutes to go and only needing a draw .

    I think when we brought in the reserve team we were up against it.

    I suspect Ange is happy to go into the conference this year and had one eye on the weekend.

    Also clearly making a point about depth.

    Defo. But he needs to keep the front 3 fresh for Sunday.
    It's no his fault he's stuck with the dross that is Ajetj, Abada and MJ.

    Ach *, I'm still chuffed with this performance.

    This is a top level bundesliga team and we are still building.

    School boy at times but exhilarating at other times.

    We will have fun in the conference

    I would have kept Jota on as he and Johnston would have been good

    Gotta remember this game isn't as important as the game on Sunday, the subs are good.

    Don't want to critisise too much as he's been used sparingly, but McCarthy hasn't offered much in any games he's appeared in, not sure where he fits in.

    We need a new back up striker in January. Don't know if Ange knows another player in Japan that runs like Kyogo. But he's blown it with the substitutions. The injury to Bitton hasn't helped.

    Carter Vickers booking will be a loss against Betis. Welsh is inexperienced.

    We need more players in the door in January to push on in the conference.
