  1. I think youre right there. Hes a good keeper but importantly he inspires confidence and defenders therefopre dont panic as much in front of him whereas they have yet to fully trust Dawson.
  2. Rhys McCabe Currently at Irish League Sligo Rovers Hes still only 26. Five clubs and has never moved for a single penny, yup no fees. Has a career stat (League) of 88 games in total over those five clubs and 28 of those were as a sub! Full details: https://www.soccerbase.com/players/player.sd?player_id=62491
  3. Westwood - 8 two super saves and never lost concentration Palmer - 7 solid as recently. Upped his game since Jos left Hector - 7 a few overhit passes but again a beast Thorniley - 7 impressive the entire game. Never put a foot wrong Fox - 5 dropped his recent standard. One really dangerous back pass Hutchinson - 7 all action but always a hairs breath from a sending off Bannan - 6 a bit lacklustre today but you can’t be a world beater every game Reach - 8 best game for ages. Shame about that late miss Boyd - 5 a little absent today. Didn’t impose himself on the game Forestieri - 6 tried and tried but just a bit rusty. It will come again for him Fletcher - 8 if only he was a regular goal scorer. Showed class all over the pitch today Aarons - 7 needed to replace Boyd earlier. Pace and trickery on show Joao - 6 ok but needed last weeks Joao not today’s version my MOM Westwood. We actually could have lost this from their quick attacks and was always reliable. On form and our number one keeper
  4. Absolutely agree. Fletcher was involved in everything again today.
  5. You obviously weren’t around when we signed Simon Coleman or even worse Larry May!
  6. Except for his assist for our first goal without which we would have lost.
  7. I think youre being too harsh on the players. Tactically we let them come onto us in the second half by playing far too deep and this terrifying tactic of playing out from the back. This was the reason Bannan had to drop ever deeper and by the time the ball got to him he was always under pressure. Villa did not do this to us in the same way. Much as I hate them and their fans weeds are overall a stronger side than us and you forget both keepers had to make good saves. Yes they were on top but we aloways looked to have goals in us and bothe Penney and Reach brought class saves from their keeper
  8. I think he can play any position down that left side. He looks to be by far the best out and out left back at the club whilst he plays the wingback role well. He also looks to be a superb left sided midfielder. Hes not shy of a tackle and his ball control is fab. He also regularly dribbles through four or five players BUT he does need to learn when to move the ball on (ie as happened on occasion against Leeds). Overall Penney = future Owls legend
  9. Hector had a steady full debut but his experience shone and this allowed Lees to feel more confident which really showed. Thorniley for me is the natural successor to Pudil on the left if we go back to three CBs
  10. I had perfect picture and proper audio but every ten mins screen went blank and I had to reset. Have to say what a fab 2nd half
  11. Except many of our ‘under 23’ squad are 18 or 19
  12. Wow, which game were you watching. OK its Sunderland but a few early wobbles aside (caused mostly by Jos's ridicul;ous play it out from the back policy) Neilsen was excellent, Van Aken was much much more solid than we have seen him and Palmer played far better than the 'usual stuff' you state. Sevens across the board for these three
