And Argentine Wolrd Cup player Jonas Gutierrez is named as one of the subs.

    Perch needs to cut the fouls out on the edge of the box.

    Ryan Taylor did well in his defensive duty at the end of the first half but then back heeled it and gave it away, silly mistake could of cost us.

    Dear me I totally disagree with a previous post lol

    Took us a while to get into this game, Routledge with a few good crosses, some poor play/passing by 1 or 2, Carroll doing very little but nearly score. A general good defensive display bar one or two bad tackles.

    Generally looking like we’re still 10-20% from full fitness, some good play some bad. Better than I expected tbh.

    Collocini is lookin very good positional sense has been great tonight think the armband has had a good influence on him. Agree Carroll should have burried that. Personally i thought Barton looks like the scousers from harry enfield.

    We have been solid in defence i admit and Taylor has done well but nearly cost us at the end. Been good so far but get Jonas out on the left.

    We need Jonas on from the bench. Also, a horror mistake from Harper then Deportivo hit post. Other than that there really hasn’t been anything on target. We need Tim Kul he shows lots of actiona and momentum.

    Since Hatem Ben Arfa team Marseille are near to sign Roque Santa Cruz than does that mean Hatem Ben Arfa is ours?
