Well-reasoned post! A whole 33 secs of highlights on Sky - Jesus, the game must have been as dour as both managers admitted!

The penalty didn't quite look 'stonewall' to me, but not as harsh as Shteve claimed either. What was Scowen thinking of, the dolt, given the cover behind him? He gave the ref a decision to make, and unfortunately he made it.

I think Blackburn and us are probably about the same as us this season - mediocre. We'll have the odd good result, our fair share of away losses, and a few grinds which could go either way. I'm liking the fact we have a defensive platform now, but 15 goals in 16 games doesn't need a PhD in Playing Football to work out where the issue is.

I think we are dependent on other teams making the running in matches, and rely on a breakaway approach to goal scoring.
Schteve seems happy to concede the majority of possession home and away, but this approach does mean we have to convert the chances we get, so every now and then we will play a team that has a similar approach to us, and we may not get as many chances. I might add, I've not seen any highlights so don't know how it went yesterday, but could that possibly explain things, and the whole approach means you have to have a rock solid defence, which we are closer to now.
Personally I like the way we're playing now, I feel we are always "in" the game from start to finish, and haven't felt that way for ages now. Good squad, but lack of depth will probably mean we're a solid mid-table rather than play-off fodder, it's squeaky tight this season.
Just my rarely posted opinion, please don't shoot!
I think that is spot on. We’ve come a long way from the start of the season.

Never a pen . Scowen played the ball - the **** then dropped to the ground after the ball was gone. I watched it again and again. The ref was taken by a nice bit of cheating. We need VAR in this division. That one point could possibly be the difference between a play off spot or not.

Yes it looked like a harsh decision as Scowen clearly got the ball first: it changed direction. The contact was after and we had a covering player too. However he went to ground and maybe from the ref's position behind the play it looked different.

Just seen the highlights on Sky. If that was a penalty then the game I grew up with is finished. Not only did Scowen get the ball first the tackle was not dangerous so on what level did the referee see that it was a penalty

Having watched it several times, Scowen’s leg was under him (bent at the knee) as the guy went to ground. The ref who booked 5 players including Luongo 4 minutes into the game, obviously was not one for letting things go. Real or imagined.

I think Eze needs to work on hitting the ball first time. He’s had a number of chances this season where taking a touch has seen the chance disappear. Belting hard, on target first time might see his goal tally improve.

Agree with a lot on here that the tackle by Scowen was a soft pen to give away,
but why wasn't one of our "experienced" defenders there to mop up, why did
Scowen have to track back to make such and intervention?

Our defence isn't exactly that of Costacurta and Baresi is it.

To be fair our defence has been very good of late and The Wall were our best players yesterday.

So before yesterday only 2 goals conceded in the previous eight league games. That's pretty good i'd say... no? I wonder what some "fans" expect to be honest. Probably Costacurta and Baresi….. and if they made one mistake some would be down on them. aniwall

Watched the pen on the highlights, and it looks a tad harsh. Be interesting to see what those at the game thought. Harsh way to lose a point.

Sorry for the late reply to this, got back late last night. Don't normally do post mortems, but since you asked....difficult to judge from where I was in Jack Walker stand but having watched it closer on youtube, scowen definitely clipped Brereton and sadly it was a fair pen. Put it this way, if that exact incident happed in reverse and a qpr player had been clipped like that everyone would say it was a stonewall. Right, Brentford next. 8)

Wrong. If Scowen clipped him it was after the ball was gone and if anything, thief Brereton clipped Scowen angling for a pen which a poor official gave.

Blimey ok. That was emphatic! That's your opinion however.
How about, as I suggested earlier, would it have been a poor decision if it was a QPR player in exactly the same position having been clipped. I suspect that the consensus would be a good decision and a fair decision. whistle

Not a penalty in my book. Why do we never seem to get such decisions ? We could/should have had about half a dozen pens for fouls on Smith alone last season.

Haven't seen the penalty incident, but will say this, if we had Baresi playing under the current interpretation of the rules, we'd be playing with 10 players more often than not.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.
