Attendance: 24,010

Referee:

Rubbish, Pathetic, Unacceptable.
Yet again the supposedly 'Best squad in Blues history' suffer defeat at home again, this is unacceptable and has to stop this saturday.

It all started well and good when Heskey raced on to Dunn's through ball and calmly rounded the keeper and slotted it home.But then . . .

Melchiot hits the deck twice within the space of five minutes and goes off with a 'hamstring' injury.Was he really injured perhaps but i can't see him playing another game for us seeing as the transfer window opening in 6 games time.

Then Mustafa goes down and is replaced by Nicky Butt, who quite frankly did bugger all and this was probably the decision that lost the game.

Soon after Bobby Zamora walked through our defence and equalised and the Harewood added a second.

In the second half we hit the post when Dunn fired low across the face of goal.Upson missed a chance that seemed easier to score and Heskey punched the ball in when it was virtually on his head, he was also being pushed over by Repka so should of had a penalty.

So yet again another Unacceptable performance from what are apparently 'Professionals'.

Gray is not fit to wear the shirt. He consistently made no effort. Butt is just happy to pick up his pay packet. Melchiot wants out. So does Jarosovic. Bruce says he cannot fault their effort - not true of Gray and the two want-aways. We deserve an explanation and if we dont get one then more and more fans will stay away. Does anybody else remember the days when players shrugged off their injuries and battled on for the good of the team?
