    Adam Reach

    Except for his assist for our first goal without which we would have lost.
  2. 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

    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

    Tom Lees

    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

    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
  6. I have a hunch about Quasimodo
  7. Except many of our ‘under 23’ squad are 18 or 19

    Player Ratings

    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

    Kirby for pelepusey

    To be fair to Hunt he was on the pitch when Sunderland were playing a high press and shading possession. The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Sunderland and young Hunt did manage to get into the game a little more. Whilst Kirby looks far more ready it has to be said that Sunderland were not the same as that first 25 mins. Penney also looked really solid once he came on and I thought Neilsen had a great game both in a three and then in a central two once Joost went off.

    Didn’t have to make a save (except where he had been fouled and punched the ball out before he was bundled into the net)

    #SWFC team for Sunderland

    Totally agree. Sky moving the game to Thursday to suit them has killed any chance of us using most first team choices. Because of the league game at Brentford less than 48 hours later Jos has to put out a second string team or players not expected to start Saturday.
  12. This by a country mile
  13. Dont know if you were at the match today but Hutch oozed class at CB with solid defending and some wonderful passes half the length of the pitch. Thorniley looked a class above once he came on, Bannan and Reach both looked bang on form. Ok the result and finishing in general were not what we wanted but theres no way on earth those players scored as low as a 6
  14. That was his last mistake. He’d given the ball away poorly a few times and never looked likely to cope with Hulls attack. When Thorniley came on we became much more solid in defence
  15. The good and ok Dawson 6.5/10 unlucky with the goal as he’d just made a superb save Pudil 6.5/10 steady Hutch 7.5/10 was solid and assured with some superb passing Tom Lees 6.5/10 looked so much better alongside Hutch Thorniley 7/10 improved the team when he came on Ash Baker 6.5/10 solid an improvement on Palmer. Got forward more today Fessi 6.5/10 quieter than last week. Plays better with Joao imho Reach 8/10 ran his socks off. My M.O.M. Bannan 7/10 some sublime passes but sat too deep Matias 6/10 looked lively and didn’t get sent off or injured The rest Fox 2/10 he was at times abysmal and did us a favour injuring himself Pelupessy 5/10 a bang average player and performance Fletcher 6/10 poor finishing but not his endeavour Jos’ starting lineup 3/10
