Penney = Crosses!

Odubajo = Lots of energy no end product.

 

Penney LWB with Harris RWB should be the way to start, unless Harris plays further forward with Palmer at RWB.

Needs tying down to a new contract if his current deal expires next year

 

Think his current contract is till the end of next season, not this one

Good. Really hope he can break through and make that shirt his own this season, thought he was very impressive today

I saw on multiple occasions in the first half Harris, Odubajo, Reach, even Bannan got into positions to cross the ball and decided against it, so I'm wondering if that was more of an instruction to keep playing short around the box, or a result of us not having any strikers on the pitch making the runs. Given how many times it happened and with all the different players (Bannan especially would usually whip balls in all day without a second thought) I don't feel inclined to blame the players themselves for not putting the ball in.

 

I've no idea if Penny was going against directions, or if it was a result of us bringing strikers on, but he certainly helped liven things up. Harris also started putting in crosses towards the end, so I wouldn't be surprised it that was an instruction earlier in the game.

Penney was excellent when he first broke into the team- showed a lot of quality, pace and composure. Then Jos put him in right midfield and it went wrong for him. Did feel that he would be even better after a season away - very hopeful for him

Despite almost the entire fan base being in agreement here & on the MOTM thread, it won’t surprise me in the slightest if Monk has Penney sat on the bench again next Saturday...

Must start next week. The loan spell has done him the world of good. I dont think Odubadjo had a bad game but Penney just had that bit more quality when he came on.

Totally agree on Penney, very bright, great crosses and a good shot. I thought odubajo was very poor, only beat his man once and seems to be looking to go backwards rather than forwards.

Got to start for me.

I don’t mind Harris but he wasn’t in the game today.

Can see why Monk is desperate to get Murphy back on the right but I can’t see it happening unfortunately.

I really want him to succeed. 

 

Was wondering what his contract situation is. 

 

His composure and control seems pretty good to me. 

 

Lets hope he can bang a few goals in too like he did for the academy.
