Well pleased with that first half. A typical away performance if anyone can remember far back enough to when we did it well. All about competing for every ball, getting back to defend, keeping organised and keeping the defensive shape, not drifting out of position or switching off.

 

Fitter, sharper, more organised, and working hard off the ball. 

 

The trick then is to take the opportunities, which may be few, when they present themselves, which we did. Two goals from our strikers. Nothing to complain about.

 

We go away getting something from an away fixture unless Cardiff score three 2nd half goals. Honestly can’t see that happening. We kept working hard when we went a goal up, didn’t deliberately relax and sit back, so I expect the same to continue.

 

Fingers crossed, this could be an excellent 3 points away from home against an average Cardiff side.

 

UTO

Our passing accuracy in that half was 48%.

 

I'm just happy for once, we have put in a, what i think is awful to watch but winning.

 

 


It’s never pretty against Neil Harris teams. Hard to get it on deck and pass it about, but hopefully we can gain but if confidence and try holding onto it a bit more as they press us. 
 

Very good away performance and nice to see a bit of fight in the lads!

I'm confused...

 

Scored 2, by strikers who according to many aren't good enough for the season ahead. Kept a clean sheet by a defence including a goalie lots think isn't good enough to be a championship no 1.

 

And reading this thread we're apparently woeful.

 

Can only be a team better than the sum of its parts - all seems to be going in the right direction to me.

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. 


Needs to learn to play football without going to ground.

 

Takes so many risks. 
 

Done ok in general though

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! 

 

 

 

Not the end of the month yet.

Yeah, he's made some decent tackles too, particularly the sliding one after Penney gave the ball away.

I think he's made 3 fouls, and I remember thinking Borner wouldn't have given that away for two of them.

Joost's not playing bad tho.
