    Totally agree - and I’ve been one of his biggest critics this season. Have never said he can’t play, and that’s the frustration with him - he has the ability to be a regular match winner. Whether he has the heart, determination, aptitude etc remains very much open to debate. Another opportunity or two now to prove he’s a big game player ... but he HAS to be more consistent moving forward next season and beyond before he becomes a fans favourite.

    If we go back to the start of the season we would have taken where we are now based on high number of fans saying this would be a season of transition. If you look at the teams above us they have either spent more money than us (West Brom, Villa), have managers who have been through their own transition of bringing their own identity to their teams  (Norwich & Bristol City)  and managers who have promotion nous with teams with decent squads(Middlesbrough and Sheffield United). If we could take a step back and think we have a rookie manager that has a had to cut its cloth to adhere to financial regulations, blooding academy youngsters and trying (but not always succeeding) to play decent football following a majority of supporters criticising the playing style from the prior seasons  then we should at least acknowledge that this  has been a decent season so far. I get the frustration with team selections, formations and tactics  at times but we haven’t got the luxury of having the best squad in the championship and if a few poor results occur in the short term to build a longer term plan for the club we should  at least try to be supportive of that. The communications coming out of recent forums tell us we are not going to be splashing cash around like some other teams will and in my mind that means we have to take the  Norwich and Bristol City approach and build a longer term philosophy. There are echos of this happening in the past (BC’s first and second season) and it working. On my part I’m going to look forward to the next five games and if we don’t get in the play offs but build some momentum that will be alright with me.

    I don’t want to poke the hornets nest after a 4-0 win, but fans change their demands as the season progresses.
    You’re right though, back in the summer many would have seen this is a decent season, but having spent a large chunk inside the top 6 expectations become somewhat skewed and Lampard has come under fire as we’ve dropped out.
    Managers will always face criticism, part of the game, I just think some of it has been over the top, and the calls to get rid were just mind boggling.
    It’s been a good day though, dominate performance with some great football at times, whatever happens in the next 5 games, for me this will still have been a largely positive season and a quick one, I swear they go quicker the older you get.

    He made a great run prior to his goal that was reminiscent of vintage Bryson where Waggy laid it off and the keeper saved it. He should have scored but it was really good to see him running in behind the striker (and for his goal). I don’t think he haas ever been a great on the ball player but when you have your striker playing like Waghorn did today then Bryson can be very effective. He got in the right positions today and could have had a hatrick as well as mount.
