  1. love how you hear it hit the net/stanchion even on an old crappy video (and they didn’t even used to mic the goals up directly the way the do now, except at Wembley - hence Shezza’s ‘dink’ )
  2. first vid looks like it was being filmed from Austria ffs
  3. more teasing on here than an 80s phonebox noticeboard ffs
  4. shocker innit, raw but defrosted - surprised they even put it that close to their gobs
  5. yeah all fair points, I should’ve rated him a 6 not a 5 - was as impactful as FF and both had an ok game
  6. and have change left over for a bovril, not too shabby
  7. yes, on reflection you’re right - in hindsight I was focusing too much on his slight physical struggle when we didn’t have the ball, overlooked his creative contribution a bit
  8. Dawson - 6, didn't have much to do that he could do much about, if that makes sense. Kicking much better today than in a while. Positioning questionable as the ball entered out box on a couple of occasions. Pelupessy - 6, actually thought he got involved and broke up play fairly well, wasn't having a great time man-marking Bellingham but it was the toughest role on the pitch today. There was a huge amount of space in our midfield first half, and he did better than I expected at making it slightly trickier to play though directly. Palmer - 5, felt he was a bit off it today. Better when switched. Distribution remained pretty poor though, and Hogan technically could've been his for the equaliser (but fair play it was a great run and finish, nobody's 'fault' really). Lees - 4, looked pretty shaky and definitely seemed half a yard off the pace (several sloppy challenges), actually thought he was lucky to get to 27min without a yellow. Iorfa - 5, really made his pace count a couple of times but his positioning remains iffy for me; his speed tends to bail him out as often as it does us. Borner - 5, played fairly hard as ever but quite clunky today, seen him infinitely more commanding than that (always when it's just him and Dom, hmmm) Murphy - 7, would've been an 8 as he was a very promising outlet all game, but you've got to dock a point for an own goal...and I would've done anyway because when he goes up for headers he has absolutely no intention of trying to win them and it fizzes me off. Reach tries harder in aerial battles than old Murph does ffs. Bannan - 7, better today than for a good while, seemed up for it and tackled back a few times, still dictated things things for us in possession a bit too much but as long as he's in the right half of the pitch I can cope with that. Lots of pointing and arm-flapping at the backline on final whistle by the looks of it, needs to cut that out but he never will. Given him my MOM but it's a tight call, Murphy loses it for the OG. Forestieri - 6, put in a shift despite being played in a thankless position, and I was really pleased with him for laying it off to the better-placed Murphy for our third. Unselfish and I was pleasantly surprised, for better or worse. Lee - 5, I thought he struggled a bit today. Brum a fairly big physical side and he looked outmuscled. Asked one or two questions going forward, but couldn't provide anything incisive. Just a very average day at the office, nothing overly concerning. At fault for the own goal if we're being brutally honest. Harris - 7, didn't get much joy but I thought he really gave them something to think about and never stopped running. It would've been very easy to nullify our attacking threat by doubling up on Murphy if Harris hadn't kept going even though he wasn't getting the rub of the green. Fox - 6, looked solid enough if a bit more tentative/hesitant than ususal, understandable first game back though. Wickham - 6, not much to go on in terms of quality service and was quiet in and around the box, but thought he used his strength effectively in build-ups and was impressed to see him chasing and winning a few balls down the channels and out by the corner flag. Wish Murphy was better at that so Wickham could stay in the box where we need him, but hey. Fletcher - 5, bang average score isn't a reflection on his performance per se, we barely got to see enough of him in serious action to give him a grade I don't think. A distraction for the Brum defence when he came on, but more in theory than in practice. Great to have him back though.
  9. Bad miss for sure, but he had waaaay too long to think about it - based on all the years I've watched footy, honestly feel like I'd probably back the 'keeper seven times out of ten when a player's run it that far in a 1-on-1. Freak chance and not an entirely unpredictable outcome IMO, regardless of whether it's Wednesday or anyone else. Should've absolutely leathered it like he did for our third goal - at least make it so you're getting a corner, knocking Camp on his 'arris, chancing a lucky rebound, or if all else fails taking some Brummer's specs off ffs.
