just to say I predicted 0-3 after hearing the team selection. I’m really annoyed I didn’t put a tenner on it.
Dawson - 6. Actually had little to do. Made one superb save. Not at fault for any of the goals despite comments in this thread. Beaten by a superb move and strike for the first, the second he must have seen very late and got a defective touch from puscas and the third was a dubious pen.
Urrhoghide - 4. Was sadly out of his depth. The first booking for grabbing his players ankle was schoolboy, the second was always coming as he constantly dived in. Might be a player in there but not for a situation like this.
Iorfa - 6. Saved a certain goal just after 1-0 when he sprinted back the length of the pitch to make a goal saving tackle. Inconsistent but not as bad as other comments suggest.
Börner - 5. The German looks half a yard slower since the turn of the year.
Palmer - 6. Decent going forward but nearly gave a goal away with a shocking pass across his own box.
Da Cruz - 4. Made one significant run at the start of the second half where he beat three players. For most of the game looked like he had an inability to control or keep the ball.
Pelupessy - 4. No worse than most of them. Boo boys favourite but like Lees absent at times although made the occasional tackle.
Lee - 4. Not the Kieran Lee of old. Looked lost
Harris - 6. Best chance of forward motion came through him. Nowhere near his best but better than the average today.
Nuhiu - 3. The big lad did his best ambling carthorse impression today. Offered zero up front
FF - 6.5. Hit the side netting with his best chance but at least worked for the shirt today.
Bannan - 4. No major improvement in his performance from last/midweek. What is going on in his head.
Murphy - 6.5. Positive impact after coming on. Couldn’t make up for his teammates though.
Wickham - 3.5. Outscoring Nuhiu by half a point because he ambled faster. No sign yet of the player he used to be.
Monk - 2. WTF was that team selection about. If he can’t make up with or select the likes of Hutch, Reach, Westwood, for the teams benefit he needs to go.
