This'll be fun.

+ Poveda looks ready

- The weakest, most slovenly performance I've seen since Bielsa took over

+ a run out for all the players that didn't get a preseason
- it looked just like a preseason run out for a few players that are considered first teamers


On the bright side, I made it "Subs Bench" status but that's nothing to shout about on tonights performance
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

plus - Players got back to shake off some rust and get some minutes under their belt

Negative - None really
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood look like somebody ordered the same rock star in two different colours.

Very little in the way of positives, the only real one was that some players got a few minutes under their belts and no one got injured.

Negatives - no one shone. We had some players that should want to play premier league football yet none looked any better than their third tier opponents and most looked worse. I doubt any have given Bielsa a selection headache, Poveda looked likely but had no end product, Rodrigo had a couple of moments where he looked lively and will hopefully be better when playing alongside sharper teammates and Kiko at least had a busy evening so will be a bit sharper if called upon.

A team will always look better than 11 individuals irrespective of quality, without going all reductio ad absurdum

Excellent comment faaip... I marked them harshly, because they deserved it the way THAT game was played, but it was only one game. I feel there has been some massive over reactions here to the result.
In other threads most are supportive of the way the "spending" is going... one abysmal result does not a season make... and all teams have them at some point or other. Better now I think.

Aye speaking for myself, it was the performance that rubbed me the wrong way, not the result. I'll be happy as Larry if we give Fulham a hiding.

I believe we'll give Fulham a hiding Moth with our tried & tested performers as long as the majority of that lot last night are not involved on Saturday.

Still concerned about our CB's, hopefully a learning process for Koch/Struijk & they'll gel with more games under their belt

Pos . Fringe players got a look
Neg. Fringe players not up to it in a few cases . Too early for some maybe .

Best get it out of the way in something like this game I guess . You'd still rather win though .
