Every goal was a cracker, probably better than the whole of last season

Roofe's second; touch, control and finish all superb

This is a really hard decision for me because each goal was brilliant. Lovely strike from Klich, superb header from Roofe where he stole in between two defenders, then his third where he took the ball and produced a bit of magic and a then superb header from Alioski....
I'm going Alioski purely because of the power of the header and although he was quite far out, the ball nearly took the goalies hand off!

All 4 of them are worthy.
Klich's fine shot
Roofe climbing so well for his first.
Hernandez not giving up and planting the ball on Ali's head.

But has to be Roofe's second, the way he controlled a poor pass and went on with great pace and balance with a confident strike at the end.

The instinct or intelligence of that first touch was premiership class. It wasn't just a kill touch, it was an instinctive touch born of high football IQ to take him the way he wanted to go, he then had the pace and quick feet to get round two defenders who were going the wrong way and finish with his left

Most strikers in this division would have killed the pass and been left with their back to goal at a standstill with maybe a pass back to a team mate as the only option.

As Hector says he was doing this all last season, Hollaway noted the goal was like the one he scored v QPR, he was beating players at will with close control and always delivered the pass into a danger zone for no one to capitalise...I know he created more goals than he was given credit for last season with the assist number (which is basically the last player to touch the ball before the goal scorer) I know Pablo got an assist after Roofe sliced and diced the defence on a wonderful run

When was the last time when we scored so many great goals in two matches & as for the MOTM you could vote for anyone of the eleven players in at least one of the games

All four goals were worthy. Alioski's goal was a magnificent team effort, but for me it has to be Roofe's first goal. The cross was a thing of beauty and the finish was superb.

Bamford's goal for me too
(There used to be a Bamford's fish and chip shop on the corner of the seafront in Scarborough when I was a kid, they were yummy. Wonder if it's still there....bet 64 will know :) )
