only constructive criticism would be, Penney hasn't been too involved and when he has his passing has not been the best, bannan also hasn't featured heavily but is in fairness doing to hard yards.

If Windass keeps playing like this for the season then that 500k is looking very very shrewd indeed

Windass the standout player that half..

 

What a finish as well.

 

And that one the keeper tipped over. We got a right bargain.

Good half score-wise.

 

We're very very deep, not supporting the forwards at all.

Rhodes and Windass with a lot of pretty thankless chasing.

Izzy Brown is much deeper than expected.

We're repeatedly looking to play thru balls from deep, just like the first goal.

Rhodes is doing really well tbh. Not just the goal, but playing with his back to goal drawing tonnes of fouls while isolated.

van Aken not too bad, some fouls he didn't need to make.

Penney given the ball away few times.

Bannan took a little while to get his eye in it seeemed.

 

Overall, can't be unhappy with the scoreline.

But I thought we were playing horrendous and had no strikers and would be down by the end of the month?? 

 

Are people on here NOT the experts??? Nobody told me! 

 

 

I thought we'd be 2-0 down by now with no shots on target. Delighted to be completely wrong...

Windass brilliant assist for Wednesday's second

Lucas would be a perfect striker for us right now. All the physical attributes we need to complement what we already have.

Not the best 45 minutes you’ll see, but it’s all about taking your chances and that’s what we’ve done.

 

We need as many points on the board this first month as possible.

HT reflections

 

Really happy to see us being much more aggressive out of possession 

 

Perfect game for us really, very little of the ball and look for Windass on the counter

 

We look a bit suspect defensively out wide - but Iorfa in particular has done a good job of covering

 

I’d look to try and have a little more composure on the ball if possible. We’re just hacking it away too often which is taking the midfielders out of the game

 

Bannan, Brown and Luongo look more than capable of bettering Cardiff - the guys behind and alongside them just need to trust them a bit more

 

Good half keep it up

I love Rhodes winning all those free kicks. This is when he's at his best. Picks up those free kicks from which he's there for the knockdowns in the 6 yard box. Players don't know how to nick the ball from him without conceding a foul.

Correct but not sure your Van Aken tells the whole story. He's playing against a canny striker and he settled into it with a few silly fouls but since then he's managed him well.

I thought you meant David "Leadboots" Lucas rather than Joao for a minute then...

2-0 lead and I’m already preparing myself for the worst!  Very unconvincing 1st half for me, but 2 good goals from very little possession.  Hope we don’t sit back too much and cut out some of the soft fouls, because I don’t fancy our chances of defending high balls into the box for another 45 minutes without conceding.
