Surprised at the amount of 6s for Westwood. Two crucial stops.

Westwood 8 two very good savescabd very commanding. Clean sheets agogo no coincidence

 

Palmer 7 solid and a good forward outlet

Hector 7 Great In Defence but poor distribution today

Thorniley 6 bit shaken but ok

Fox 7 same as Palmer

 

Reach 8 superb first half. Quiet second. Easily most threatening player.

Bannan 7 everywhere as always

Hutch 7 dangerous first 15 but settled down and was great foil for BB

Boyd 6 shame his early shot was so well saved. Faded badly.

 

Fletch 6 great feet but poor in air today.

FF 5 poor day. Too deep, left Fletch isolated.

Westwood 7 little to do but two good saves when needed 

palmer 7 good game very good of late 

fox 6 did nothing wrong defensively but poor going forward slowed us down 

thorniley 6 solid uncomplicated 

hector 7 good player hope we can sign him up permanently 

hutchinson 7 typicall hutch but should have scored 

bannan 6 decent but needs to be more positive 

boyd 4 awful offers nothing 

reach 8 great first half best he’s played this season faded second half along with rest of team 

forestieri 6 some moments of quality but needs game time hopefully firing on all cylinders come derby day 

fletcher 6 worked hard little reward 

aarons 6 looks lively and very quick hope he starts Tuesday 

jaoa 6 looked to make something happen should have been on earlier 

nuhui 5 not on long but looked sluggish 

overall should have had game won by half time but faded after break, inability to take chances is worrying but at least now we make some

I'm not being a pr1ck here, but surely a team with those scores, you would expect that either they won, or that the opponents were a top team they held at bay. 

 

Reading were quite poor and it's clear to see why they're doing so badly, despite goals scored and conceded very similar to ours. 

 

I can't give anyone more than a 6 today. Mainly 5's, wit possibly Hector an exception as he never looked troubled and organises well. The rest underperformed against a weak team. 

 

Yes you are.lol

I don't recall Thorniley losing a defensive header all game until Bodvarssun won one late in the game. He fitted in well and looked very assured as he did against Higuain in the Chelsea game.

I was undecided between Palmer and Hutchinson but chose Hutch by just a gnat’s b0770ck.

Reach would have won if he played 2nd half anywhere near as good as first half. Reading in 2nd half specially first 20 mins really pegged us back. Reach struggles when he needed to chase the game. Hector and Palmer where best today closely followed by Hutch and Thorniley. Palmer gets my MOM vote due to Hector misplacing a few passes in bad positions. Nothing serious just cant think of Palmer losing possession in similar places.Dont know if Lees injured but Thorniley / Hector centre halves partnership looked solid. FF was most disappointing today, he looked very rusty both mentally (poor decision making) and physically (poor 1st touch and a yard off the pace). He needs 3 or 4 games before we may see some of his old self again. 8 for Hector Hutch Thorniley and Palmer, rest 6's apart from FF who a 4 for me.Nuhui didnt get enough time to get a score.

Thorniley, hector and Palmer were good . Fletcher was alright . The rest weren’t awful but didn’t do their respective jobs nearly as well as they should .

Bang average performance from pretty much everyone. Possibly palmer mom. Few points though hector needs to stop looking for the glory ball and bannan needs to get into forward thinking mode

 

Is that Hector who allowed us to create two amazing late chances in the last two games with inch perfect cross field passes?

 

Part of playing attacking football is accepting it won’t always come off

Laughing it all these people specifically mentioning Reach’s first half performance...

 

We all read / heard that Bruce said that...no need to pretend you didn’t
