    They're both absolute dog **** and get picked because they're long serving players with a certain standing at the club.

    If I was Sierralta I'd walk out at this point.

    Only 'fit enough for the bench', comes on in the 79th minute, and comes off in the 87th, ******* lol

    Our great medical team. Just as effin useless as anything else at the club. A real nadir today. Really bad.

    Wasn't fair to bring him on there. Especially since I'd rather have Gosling at RB than have Kabasele as a registered player.

    Ripped his shirt off (literally, hulk-style) and went straight down the tunnel when he came off. Assuming frustrated to be injured again? Why was he rushed back? Our medical team are consistently a shambles.

    Why did Gosling come off? Injury, or just struggling?

    Yep. A few months in 20/21 that were a flash in the pan in an otherwise rubbish career.

    I'm all for slagging off our pathetic players but this is a bit harsh.

    As it stands he's been in English football for about a season and a half in total. He had an excellent first half a season in the Championship, followed by being ignored for the entire season in the Premier League with the likes of dinosaur moron Hodgson, who favoured the "experience" of players a similar age to himself, and refused to give anyone else a chance despite how utterly pathetic they were.

    He then again started this season pretty well and has definitely been our best centre back (not a high bar, granted) but has again suffered with injuries. He's also one of very few players who looks and plays like he's actually bothered about the result. One thing I will admit, is that those injuries of his do seem to be racking up now.

    Probably didn't help that he was rushed back the other day.

    Or traveled not totally fit.

    We can only hope that he was rather subbed to preserve him from exacerbating anything, as the game was already finished by that point. Or because we'd realised we'd made a mistake in bringing him on to begin with as he didn't seem up to speed again yet.

    Bilic said it was an injury in his post-match pitch-side interview.

    A recurrence I presume of the one he had 3 days earlier ?

    About time he got back amongst the goals, I make it now that he is back on 'neutral' goals for us when taking into account oggies!

    He was very good in general tonight.

    Best performance he's put in since the last promotion season

    That could also have been vs Burnley - with that performance being made extra enjoyable by the fact he was winding up that tvv@t Barnes so much.

    I didn't watch but I'm just going to assume he's the one and only reason we kept a clean sheet.

    His pass back to Bachmann after Bachmann had just been injured was a highlight.

    I came to the conclusion after about twenty minutes that he must be an awkward sod around the club because he seems a very competent player at this level.

    Heads it,hoofs it and one delightful moment early on when he let the ball reach the sideline and then wellied it into the Norwich stand.

    They were lithified!

    I mean he's a pretty poor footballer but a decent enough defender at this level. It's not the first time he's been sidelined for a while, wasn't there some fallout from one of his international trips? He doesn't seem it but maybe he is a difficult character off the pitch.

    He's a similar standard to WTE and Kabasele. All can defend but have a catastrophic error in them and cannot pass a ball for toffee

    Didn't he get injured on an international trip? I highly doubt he's a disruptive influence around the club as I don't know how much English he speaks, I suspect the reason he's not in the team is because he's possibly the worst of our CB options on the ball, and although he's probably the best defender (albeit still limited), even the likes of Kabasele can do a job at this level

    He was immense today. Goes to show the danger of posting when drunk, kids!

    Watching this guy trying to keep up with 35 year old Shane Long before the second goal was hilarious. Looked like he was towing a caravan through a swimming pool filled with marmite.

    Looked better at Norwich. But then we had our technically best centre half Craig Cathcart playing alongside him.

    Although of course marmite does divide people so he may dislike it?!

    I think he’s better than those 2 based purely on the fact that he is more committed than Kabasele and is better on the ball and makes less mistakes than WTE.

    But he’s still not very good. He’s elevated by some fans because he’s better than those 2 (which I guess is fair enough). But if this club went out and bought 2 genuinely decent CB’s, it would dawn on many just how bad our entire current crop are.

    Is he? I suspect he gives the ball away less than WTE, but I think that'd probably be more a function of Sierralta keeping it simple and WTE trying more ambitious passes

    He is better physically and more committed but like all our defenders error prone and can be caught out .

    He's not showing that much progression to the naked eye. Still the same sort of player he was two seasons ago. Whereas you look at Perez at Familcao and now at Udinese and you see clear signs of improvement in reading the game, when to pinch, when to stay off a player and passing not to mention strength.
