    Really impressed with shelvey’s passing today he made it look so easy, gini is fantastic in the 10 role, mitro is good all round needs to learn to put his foot through the ball, sissoko looked knackered in the second half and needs to learn how to shoot. Colo had another top performance. Elliott looks a great keeper made some important saves today.

    Gini best player today followed by Shelvey.
    Gini’s dribbling/ trickery is excellent. His other “trick” of suddenly slowing down and accelerating away again leaves the opposition dead as his acceleration is better than opponents.
    Overdue 3 points.

    Day got better with Palace getting trounced.

    I think Thauvin leavimg on loan will affect Townsend deal more than Sissoko

    thauvin not even on the bench.

    strange that we had aarons on the bench, yet he brought on gouffran who clearly has no future at the club; even riviere would have been a better option

    Who says they haven’t? Maybe they’ve enquired and we gave them a over the top asking price hence their hesitation

    Voted for Shelvey simply for that pass, sublime so it was.

    The big Serbs hold up play was great but he misses far to many chances. We can’t afford to miss that many chances in our predicament. We could’ve been punished for that right at the end.

    We absolutely dominated 23 shots or something like that. I reckon if Ba or Remy where playing we would’ve hammered then.

    Coloccini also put in a very good performance again.

    Not sure mate…not when both are desperate to make their respective international squads for the Euros…they will both pretty much demand full playing time..can’t see either being happy pushing the other from the bench

    repost;
    evening all
    great win today,but put ourselves under pressure with a bit stupidity from mbemba…which led to a very nervous half…but heres my view…
    elliot……solid enough with 2-3 crucial saves if he keeps this form up krul has a problem
    janmaat…..a lot better quality today a willing runner and im sure i heard a commentator say “excellent defending”at one stage,think he’s going to love having shelvey picking out his runs
    mbemba…..solid enough bar his mistake,seems like he’s rushing out more..needs to pick his battles better,..no when to come out with the ball and when to just clear ya lines or pass…but he is young.
    colo….ive had a go at him when he deserved it and praised him when deserved, today was strong a played really well motm contender… good to see
    dummett…..tackled well tried to push up to get involved cant knock his performance,hope his injury is’nt to bad.
    shelvey…..looked like the missing piece of the jigsaw,cool calm passing and always looking to open up the opposition….great passes for the goals….tailed off in the second half but has’nt played much apparently so can only get better.
    colback…..grafted well all game and slotted into LB easily…and done a great job all game.
    sissoko…..powerhouse performance with only the odd quality decision or final ball letting him down…good game.
    gini…..fantastic performance linked well,pace,full of running and strong on the ball,not frightened to get stuck in great game motm.
    perez….looked sharp first half after a poor display tuesday….and a fantastic finish….chased,hurried the opposition..while also showed good movement attacking…..not really in the second half should of maybe been off earlier as he looked knackered again in 2nd half.
    mitro….thought he was good today…strength,hold up play,bringing others into play….his finishing needs work and could do with a bit of luck in front of goal….but at 21 wont tear him to bits…we still need a striker tho….he needs the competition.
    saivet…..hard to see what he did there were a few nice touches and closing down…cant really knock the lad as he done nowt wrong.
    goofy…usual goofy performance…ran alot, got stuck in without showing much….cant really knock him,he worked decent enough

    Gini was excellent as well. The difference that one player with vision made to the team was remarkable like.

    I actually think Gini played better because there was somebody else in the team on the same wavelength.

    Motm:Gini then Shelvey then Mitro then Colo.

    Saivet looks well off the pace. Thought it was a big mistake bringing him on.

    Colback is not a full back

    Both will get game time though, Townsend is unfit so can’t come straight in and play (plus tbf England have very few options and he already knows Roy wants him in the squad) also I don’t think Sissoko would risk a drop off in form coming from a move

    We will see but I don’t think even tubs would sell Sissoko unless we were safe…come summer now that could be different

    I thought Saivet played ok actually. He made one mistake which led to a good west ham attack, but apart from that looked very composed and made some decent challenges. He did look a little off the pace, but that is understandable.

    Also, I think he was only brought on as dummett was injured (allowing colback to go to left back).

    He’s going to have to play sometime and I don’t think there will be many games we are going to be comfortably leading where we can ease him in.

    To me he looked good, one error which was dangerous but seemed to keep it simple and quiet, normally a decent sign for a defensive player.

    Not saying I want him in the team but when Gouffran moved up top for the last 5 minutes you could see he made better runs and tried to get in behind.

    By no means the answer but could be an option up top as something a little different, definitely not a midfielder.

    ive said a few times on here.. i didnt think we would sign a left back coz i believe willems is on his way in the summer(gut feeling only)…but with dummett going off with a hamstring tweak,makes you wonder if they might now?

    Just as I’m about to hit a key the submit button keeps jumping under my finger.

    Colback is not a full back. His name even tells you that.

    I see everyone is delighting in knocking Toonbrother. Colo has been awful this season. His positional play has been woeful. He’s one of the main reasons we’re in this mess. Yes Colo had a very good game today but he’s got a lot to make up for. He wasn’t put under quite the same pressure as usual because we took the game to them.

    Mbemba had a good game but for his Bramble moment. We can’t afford such carelessness.

    Great first touch from Jamnutz for the second.

    Mitro was fundamental to our success today. But his finishing is woeful. Got to get a goalscorer who can play off him.

    Sissoko might be a beast but he wastes too many chances and has not alot of end product.
    Mitro needs time out of the team as he is just not getting the rub of the green,at the very least he needs an older striker to help him out.We seem to play Perez with him but the two dont complement each other.
    Imho Townsend is a decent shout to replace Sissoko,if he flops its far less expensive then the recent French bunch of wingers.
    As for a new striker why not Andre Gray.

    Excellent win that. Should of put the game to bed far earlier with the chances we had.

    Shelveys raker for janmaat? Sublime and something we’ve sorely missed. The ball into wiji for the first was class too.

    Did anyone else notice though that everytime he had a shot towards the end he patted his head? Making sure his brains still there perhaps? Or touching wood?

    Found it quite amusing.

    I knew the press would make a mountain out of a molehill with regards to the coming together.

    Reloaded newsnow not 5 minutes after the match had finished and it’s online.

    Absolutely pathetic.

    Mitro does need to finish but he’s a bull for us at the moment and with more game time comes the experience of knowing what to do and the time and place to execute it. Hold up play was brilliant and he is getting better game by game.

    All round great performance although we did drop off the second half and the intensity waned significantly allowing them back into the game.

    All in all. A much needed win.

    Dummett is far better than Colback at LB. Their winger was crossing at will after the switch.

    I think it’s true to say that Shelveys’ abilities to spray balls around gives the other players confidence to get forward and not be hesitant or think there is no point in getting forward as the ball will be misdirected.
    First half was reminiscent of the KK all out attack philosophy.

    Also janmaat taking that laser pass in his stride and supplying the cross for our best attacking player. Class.

    Were you at the game or did you watch on tv? Saivet might have looked ok on tv. He looked off the pace and unsure from where I was sitting. I fear he’s not what we need at this moment.

    Thought the lads done well today. If I was been picky mbembas distribution was sometimes wayward and perez doesn’t seem himself of late. Great goal but just seemed a little off. All this talk of a bigger club may be playing with his mind when he’s far from a big side player at the moment.
    Thought colo was great too, should keep a few on here quiet and mitrovic although should’ve scored worked his socks off. Gini fantastic think shelvey will bring the best out of him although could be a bad thing as he won’t be here long! All in all 3pts was what was important but the performance was a bonus.

    Sissoko was dead on his feet with half an hour to go, he drifts out of the game far to much and has a heavy touch every time he’s on a run, not good one on one with the ball st his feet he’s great when the ball is put ahead of him for him to run onto.

    Well for me it was a shoulder definitely not an elbow, but wouldn’t surprise me if the kernts banned him.

    It was only the reaction of Valencia that drew attention to it.

    Thauvin’s defo gone mate..in fact not so sure he ever turned up to be honest so not even in my thinking.

    Townsend is right wing orientated…I admit the thought of townsend on the left and sissoko on the right sounds mouth watering but you can just imagine the holes they’d leave behind!

    Whoever owns the right wing will switch over to the left now and again whenever it suits…I think two out and out wingers would cause us defensive issues all day long.

    One or the other I think
