    Same experts that wasted their bingo pick by putting Darlow in goal?

    Didnt think we played well today. Against the bottom side in the championship and we were the width of the post away from being equal to them.

    Dont understand why Anita ahead of Yedlin. Yedlin offers so much more, give him a season to get ready and he can handle the PL, his link up with Ritchie should be encouraged not broken up every other game.

    Dummett did ok i thought, no real competition for him right now with Haidara and Gamez not fit and Lazaar seemingly a long way off being ready.

    Atsu looked promising, pace to burn.

    Mitro needs game time though for me, seems a waste to have Shelvey, Ritchie and Atsu crossing in and no Mitro in there. Play ‘itro up top and Gayle in and around him, then he can drop in as the 10 when we lose the ball.

    Anyway a win is what matters i know, just think we should approach games like this looking to dominate and be out of sight early rather than hanging on at the end against poor opposition.

    Ritchie is far and above our most intelligent midfielder. If he’s fit enough to be on the bench, he’s fit enough to start. He needs to start

    It’s possible, isn’t it, that he wanted to rest Ritchie and felt Anita provided a tadge more defensive cover than Yedlin?
    And that he thought Atsu and Yedlin was an inexperienced pairing, one in which one might push on without the other tracking back.

    Ritchie is in with a good chance of playing for Scotland against Lithuania and Slovakia both world cup qualifiers. I think Rafa was trying to do him a good turn.

    Would agree the goalscorers get a lot of ‘regardless’ votes, but is it not possible to score a goal and be the best player? I thought atsu looked our most dangerous/creative player when on and to call him best player would be a fair shout imo. Should have saved that critique for another week maybe.

    Have to say, if Rotherham keep playing like that I can’t see them being down there for much longer. We were poor, though.

    Summer defends well but offers little else.

    I’d have kept Gayle on and subbed Diame for mitro as he offered nothing.

    Motm for me would be either darlow who made some great saves or Lascelles who commanded at the back when we were under pressure.

    We carried Diame all game

    So now the village idiot is whining about Atsu being voted MOTM by the majority. Either he didn’t watch the game, or did watch it and doesn’t have enough football knowledge or common sense to see that Atsu played well regardless of his goal.

    Still, it’s to be expected from sub-human scum, isn’t it?

    Atsu did what he does well – fed , prompted and pushed by Shelvey , who was head and shoulders the man of the match.

    Wolverhampton are being very profligate in front of goal tonight – they should be at least on level terms with the Canaries.

    We are still a reasonably unbalanced team.
    Diame is playing as a number 10, when he is really a ball-carrying midfielder.
    Gouffran is playing as a wide striker, with no real qualities as a winger. He works hard covering and scores vital goals.
    Colback tidies up semi-efficiently in his own backyard but offers little protection to Shelvey, who has to make his own space to play and can be overwhelmed and negated if the other team is pressing hard.
    Dummett covers his slot. but in combination with Gouffran means we attack down one side.
    Rafa isn’t going to play a combination of Gayle and Mitrovic or Gayle and Perez.
    If Mitrovic plays, Perez will play.

    No-one had a terrible game and no-one had a great game. That in itself is probably why we didn’t concede and won by a single goal.

    Jib needs an enemy.
    If hasn’t one, he can’t stop himself attacking regular posters, for which he gets blackballed. You are playing his game.

    Rated him highly. Puzzled as to why he only started now.

    For me he needs a run of games then to be rotated by Ritchie.

    Would love to see the following line-up next game.

    Gamez——Clark——-Hanley——Dummett

    Atsu——–Shelvey—-Hayden——Yedlin

    —————Mitro—-Gayle—————-

    Yet to start them two…

    And Gorgonzola wins the five pound prize for being the first to suggest dropping our most consistant and active player on the basis of what he’s seen in a one-half performance.

    Whats your issue? So what if he is consistent Atsu is a shock player. What are you 12? what kind of moronic reasoning is that? Typical childlike thinking, and complacent too.

    Give me a break.

    On a scale of one to ten, how gutted were you that Gouffran only hit the post rather than score a spectacular own goal you could have laughed out loud at?

    BandB – oh, I’m well aware of his stupid little games. I might not be a regular here much, but I know he’s an idiot who likes to stir. It’s a shame we have dolts like him on this blog who try to ruin the harmony on a regular basis. The more he digs at people on here, the more of a total saddo he looks.

    I’m thinking of inventing a football game for X-Box where there is no limit to squad size, unlimited transfer funds and no transfer window.
    There will be no limit on substitutes and you can take players off and put them back on again whenever you attention span runs out and you are feeling a bit bored during your free afternoon from lessons.
    In fact, it will be just like that rather popular X-Box basketball game.
    Should keep the kids happy.

    That amusing, coming from a person whose objection to the whole season season can be summed up with the petulant phrase “I’m SOOOOO bored!”

    Not quite sure but on a scale of 1-10. I would give you a clear 10 of what an absolute c0ck you are.

    Hell always has a legit reason why somebody should play instead of somebody else. Why well because somebody suggested otherwise.

    If that winds you up go take your scrotum for a walk would you.
    Pathetic and embarrassing. Have a great life you low-life peasant.

    Gah, my obsession during the summer, Brady, wins it for Norwich with a peach of a strike.

    Only kept pace with those around us today, was hoping to make some gains.

    So what is your retort here regarding Atsu? Not playing him then?
    Great, the match would have ended in a draw, today in particular.

    Well done you are a brilliant tactician and you are so clued up on the statistics of playing players that are constantly performing.

    Wow what a truly great mind, then get shown the door its a hissy fit.

    Atsu had a lively half and scored a very good goal.

    What claims beyond that are you making?

    was wondering what happened to Mehdi Abeid and this is what came up. The article states that he has had a good start with his new club Dijon which was recently promoted to ligue 1 with an impressive game against PSG and a nice assist against Rennes.
