Bryan Robson admitted that his side looked nervous before they faced Liverpool at The Hawthorns on Saturday but admitted that he didn’t know why they were feeling like that as they seemed in good spirits before the game.
Robson also laid into the performance of referee Uriah Rennie after the game stating that the first goal for Liverpool was blatantly offside.
Robson said, “Their first goal was offside, there's no doubt about that, but we never seem to get decisions like that.”
He did admit that it was no excuse for the way Albion performed in the first-half adding, “We were absolutely hopeless on the ball.
'We didn't pass it and there was no conviction in our play whatsoever, which is why you get beaten when you play against teams like Liverpool.
'We looked nervous from kick-off. Right away we started edgily and we never recovered from that.
'Our composure was poor, which I can't understand because the players were in a decent-enough mood coming into the game.
'It's alright talking a good game, but you have to do it on the pitch, and for the first time in quite a few weeks our performance level was not there in that first half.'
After giving Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham a few frights in the last few games we were expecting better from Albion than they gave in the first-half and it was a disappointment to perform the way we did.
The players just didn’t seem up to the task in the first-half and yet again we were made to pay for more individual mistakes.
