Better today than in the last couple. Especially the first half. Team selection was dire, deeney why?. Palmer over taundry at right backWHY?..taundry instead with weston in the centre?..erm YES PLEASE. Biggest insult for the day feel to paul boertien, who is the best left back at the club by a country mile. HUghes was crap & mostly has been all season, bradley shows no signs of the promise he did last year. Jabo & ricketts did ok, but lacked the service yet again. Gerrard's attitude is god darn awful,blaimg incey for things he was mostly at fault with. Nicholls however was excellent & is looking promising for good things in the future ( if we can keep hold of him). AWFUL, school boy defending as per,cost us 2 goals. The tactics mullen plays are truly crap, he will be like he already should be, out of a job in the non to distant future.
Ince- Ok, dealt with crosses, kicking improved slightly,tipped a kandol chance around the post in the 2nd,top save.
Weston- Caught for the first, was generally better. Mullen dropping him early in the season has affected him,like many others, lacking in confidence, mullen has obviously lost him.
Gerrard- AWFUL,AWFUL attitude,blaming incey for his lack of talking and communication. Did ok, but looks nothing like early season.
Palmer - NO , yes NO postional sense, skinned by grabban all over the place, set piecs weren't brillant either. CRAP.!
Sansara - Awful posotioning, some decent distribution , probably rusty, was ok as soon as he got to grips.
Hughes - Crap again, never the captain of this football team, can't pass forward, shows no skill,pace or atacking invention, the fact he's the holding defender and we've coneded far too many goals says it all really. What does he do? Nothing, bring back dobbo
Bradley - See hughes, went on a couple of runs today though, better than of late, but generally poor & un-involved.
Deeney - Huffs & puffs, but has the skilly of my grandfather. Slow,doesn't read the game,doesn't really contribute to anything, get rid.
Nicholls - Superb stuff 4 in 4 now, fast,energetic, was involved in all our good moments, with a bit more composure he could have set a couple of goals up. I really hope we keep him , because good things & money will come off him.
Jabo - Better than last week,still has awesome close touch control, sometimes makes slightly the wrong decision in distributuion.
Ricketts - Started brightly, but eased off. Looked to have gone into one of his "i can't be bothered" phases that he has once every erm..5 minutes. Still showed some brillance,one piece of skill in the first half where the ball was dying out to be hit. Booing him though or lowering his confidence wont help, we need this man interested because he will score most of our goals this season.
Taundry - Did ok when he came on. Should have started either a right back or centre midfield
Mattis - Got stuck in & did the simpe things, could have got forward a bit to, probably to scared to leave fragile bradley alone though.
Boertien - Should most definetely have started, did ok to when he came on.
Things have to change & now muddle.
3 wins in 13 games, is a stat speaking for itself.
