Excellent performance today. Thought we looked generally solid throughout, and, as others have alluded to, the first half stats were misleading in that it was pretty even. Second half we dominated, with Sunderland remaining a threat on the break with their quality forward players.
Cook, was outstanding as was Kinsella. Shout out to Devlin as well, who generally did well against McGeady in one on one situations and (I think) provided the assist for Cook’s excellent finish.
Great to see Joe Edwards back on the bench - it’ll be interesting to see what position Keates deploys Edwards in. In today’s formation you would imagine he’d replace Osbourne in the midfield three, but in our usual 442 where does he fit in?
His return could be the catalyst for us to switch permanently to this 433…
