    I agree that Perez is too young, too inexperienced and too light weight to play the lone striker.

    We really needed a playmaker today. Colback and Abeid are workmen like but we had no one who could dictate play. Grenier would be excellent. De Jong would do as well.

    Obertan did look committed to the cause when he came on.

    Perhaps he has had a road to Damascus moment in the close season.

    Venomous strike… a player I have been silent over when others have trashed… I believe he could be a very talented player.

    Quick word about Williamson. He looked solid in defence and was generally first to every headed ball.

    The fact that Obertan scored a decent goal should prove to everyone that pre-season form is irrelevant

    Its just about getting match fitness into the players

    But he did habe kids up front, who were inefective. You know as well as anyone that an inefective front line puts more pressure on the defence. I agree his tactics are too negative for nufc, but if you ask someone to be honest, and shoulder responsibility, it becomes rediculous to tear into them when they do it.

    First half looked like half the team were new players who had not played with each other before and also didn’t want to get injured. And to a point that is what it was…EXCEPT that the defense cannot have that excuse.

    My abiding memory of the first half is of Taylor totally out of position and raising his arm for off-side as the opposition player strikes for goal.
    We need pace with height in the centre of defense, Not Collo or STaylor and not MYM. We need to buy or we’ll burn there.

    All excuses apart for this defeat (you know the ones, young, just back from holiday, jet lag, just a run out, new to the team etc) the one barrier to success is still A P. Even Ashley cannot be blamed this time, because he has put money into the team, but his failure, which will be proved later, is to change the manager. Unfortunately it’s going to take a few lost games before the penny drops on Ashley that Pards just can’t manage the team well enough. After our home defeat to Man City then maybe Ashley will see what most of us have banging on about for months !
