Reach was excellent today. Loads of energy and must have run more than any other player. Had good control and took us up the pitch on loads of occasions. He could have been MOM for both sides today.

No better runner for us, hope he can improve his crossing from the right tho like he did when on the left with some good floaties and low crosses from there.

 

We had 2 big men up front who were crying out for more crosses, especially from his side.

 

When he checks back onto his left he could work on whipping it or even floating it in. Add a cheeky stepover and we got a 2nd tier waddle then :biggrin:

He's had some stick this season, but was involved everywhere today and played a tireless role in our high-pressing game. Let himself down slightly with that one moment defending the back post, but played a vital role in us stopping Leeds at source and created several chances with his blocked tackles high up the pitch. MotM for me.

Im not his biggest fan but he did play well today

Who else have we got?

Its all fair enough pointing out the shortcomings of Reach, Fox , Nuhiu etc..as seems to happen on here...

But what are the alternatives?

Buying..whoever......... is not an alternative is it?

We stand 4th in the division at the minute, can we improve that with what we have?

Is it not a little above expectation?

When there is an alternative to Reach...post it...

I doubt there is a player who can improve upon his position at the minute,........................ Murphy?

I honestly don't think so

Lets support what we have at the minute.

We all want better, that goes for every position on the pitch, but it seems like we need to slate someone, win,. lose or draw..

I fully understand the frustration, 

Prices

the road closures

Not being allowed to take a f.ookin' bottle top in

Its all stuff we should rail against..But we don't..

We tend to pick a scapegoat

Its self defeating nonsense

Reach had a good game today..He had a decent game against Stoke....

Bannan can have one game where he doesn't score above 8 on the "Owlstalk rateometer" and everyone goes into "Should we drop Bannan" mode

We are 4th...We are up there...can we stay there?

Not with the self defeating nonsense thats sometimes posted on here

Ran about a lot but still looks like he is missing that final bit of nimbleness and fitness, always just a second too slow to the ball. Looks like he has zero confidence when shooting.

 

We need to be clear what we are judging him on, is it running about or actually making passes, crosses or scoring goals?.

And beating the full back with another yard of pace. 
 

Having said that he played well today and credit for his tireless hassling and running.

Did a job, worked hard, but when he had the chance to take his man on he failed. Can’t remember him putting in one decent cross today.  

 

With 2 big lads in the middle I’d have liked to see Harris and Reach swap sides for a bit to try and get a few more crosses in.

No where near man of the match 

Are you a bit teasy because England outplayed the All Blacks today. ( despite have a Welsh referee)

Why does nobody acknowledge his off the a ball work

 

Stopped runs, transitions of play, hunted ball down - all 80% of the game. 20% what you done with it and he took the ball 40 yards at least 3 times

 

MOTM

Was very good today Reach ... Hard to see past the central defenders for MOM though.

Strange that all the posters on here who don't rate him are in direct opposition to the pundits who said what a vital cog he is to wednesday's midfield...it's almost like some people don't actually know what his role is...who would've thought that lol

It simply feeds offa itself on here Davey..

Pick a player.....

"Drop Bannan"

"Nuhiu does nowt"

"Fletchers eyebrows are too close together"

Criticising simply for the sake of it
