Rochdale -v-Wednesday (League Cup) OMDT


Recommended Posts

Professional performance could have been 6-0, great energy, pressure & build up. Good performances from the young lads & Palmer has learned to cross after all this time.

Well played Adam Reach. He really deserved a goal tonight.

 

His 2nd half was good.  Chased everything, could've had 3 goals, quick thinking for the 2nd goal, let's not write him off just yet...

Another clean sheet. Ipswich next hopefully then we really could go far. I'd take relegation for a cup win.

You sir are an idiot.

OOOO you can't say that about Reach, your gonna cop for it now, take cover.

I’ve always been a fan of Reach and yes it was against Rochdale, but his closing down and positional play were brilliant. It was his quick thinking that created our second goal. I felt gutted he didn’t score tonight.

According to sky in depth stats, we had them well beat in all areas....

Except aerial duals...

 

So we just need an aerial leader...:rolleyes: 😋

A lot to like about that performance, especially the 2nd half.

 

Our appetite to win the ball back was something we haven't seen since 2015. Not only did we press high, but we were positive in trying to intercept balls all over the pitch. Very impressive.

 

I thought our assurance on the ball was, again, something we haven't seen for many a year. I know the opposition weren't much cop (to be fair, I think we made them a lot worse than they are), but we've played some rubbish in the past 3/4 years, and never looked so comfortable on the ball, as we did today. The back three looked confident, and had options either from midfield or out wide, almost constantly.

 

And thirdly, the amount of quality chances we created. Either from incisive interplay, forcing mistakes high up the pitch or clever, well-worked set pieces. We've won at a canter...but, we've missed some sitters. That probably the only downside to tonight. 

 

All that, given we changed the entire line-up from Saturday, is mightily impressive. Nothing to get too carried away over...but, if that's a sample of how Monk wants us to perform week-in, week-out, the omens can only be positive. Lets hope that positive mindset transcends over to the much tougher task ahead, against Watford on Saturday.

Pleased with that. Hate to tempt fate, but we're starting to look a decent team. Particularly impressed with being able to interchange personnel into the system, while still looking coherent. 

 

Nobody had a poor game, thought everyone did well. I picked them out at half time, but thought Shaw and Hunt were excellent. Dele-Bashiru also had a better second half and showed what he's about. 

 

All in all, been a very good start to the season.

I'm a Reach fan myself not watched the game tonight but he's a genuine player and is a real quality player. 

 

Pleased we have him.

Excellent start to the season, big step up in opponent at the weekend but play like we have and I fancy us to get something against a very good Watford team. 

Yes Joey had a good game don’t you think?

Positivity at a start of the season, looks like Monk and back room staff are getting a tune out of them.

 

Really impressive to see academy players come in and replicate the same philosophy. Saturday against Watford will really show what we are capable of against a strong side.
