Two Of Our Loan Boys Get Winning Debuts


Freddie Woodman started his Swansea City loan spell in fine fashion with a start in their 2-1 win against Hull City in the Championship. Freddie just joined Swansea on Thursday but has been able to get his chance at first-team football.

Dan Barlaser also got a start for Rotherham United as the League One club were able to start their campaign with a 1-2 victory at Wimbledon. He lasted sixty-nine minutes before being substituted.

This is a very good start for both youngsters at their respective new clubs. Let’s hope they can continue to develop and get the first-team experience they need.

    kc2012,
    It’s not like Brewce has taken over a team where the manager was sacked because the team weren’t performing, we were playing well towards the end of last season. Brewcey has taken over a well drilled team minus it’s majority of goals.

    Mike Is only investing now to get us off his back. By the next transfer window, Rafa will be all forgotten about about and Ashley will stop spending

    Good game, we looked more atracking than last season where we kept games tight and countered.

    We had a look of Crystal palace about us, add this to our decent midfield and strong defence, we might be ok next season.

    We definitely need another striker, or 2. Injuries to Joelinton or Almiron and we’re fo0ked.

    Only a pre season but we looked comfortable against a decent team

    We had a good rugby team
    Carlton Johnson who played FB for Percy Park

    He also trained up some top class hammer throwers

    Maybe so lindis, doubt it though. Previous players have said he is inventive. We coyld get our arses handed to us, but lets be clear – if we were losing and playing 442 (can still be a brilliant system) and banging it long, Les Miserables would be spewing all over him and the blog. Lets just keep hoping. It could be messy at times.

    Keeper
    Dubravka

    Defence
    Lascelles, schar, leejune, dummet, Fernandez, Clark

    Mid
    Shelvey, Hayden, ki, two longstaff, saviet

    Striker
    Jolington, Almiron, ASM

    You can to say, its definitely the best spine we’ve had since our 5th place finish.

    Sounds like Mr. Brucie has the lads playing well so far but let’s see how we do against Arsenal. The squad is definitely stronger now but still thin at striker.

    Obvious from the start that Joelinton was the new centre forward. Well obvious to some.
    Despite this we’ve had amatooooooor managers, new students of the game and an associated rag bag collection of greenhorns who said he wasn’t or that we would be buying a CF.

    At least Brucie has now put that to bed with his remarks about not looking for any other strikers.

    Whilst not exactly equating – nearly as bad as saying Shearer was a fullback.

    I see Fulham’s Championship all-stars got off to a losing start against Barnsley. Tried to buy PL survival as if that’s all it takes and now trying to buy their way back up.

    Scott Parker, Woodgate and a few other rookie managers in for a slog in that division.

    Bruce on Dwight Gayle: “I want to keep him. As I keep saying, you’re only as good as your strikers. In that areas we need a threat and Gayle has always been part of my plans.”

    An injury to Joelinton and who do we put up front? Gayle or Muto? They won’t cut it in the Prem but it’s all we have. I still think we’ll be short on goals unless Miggy and Longstaff provide them….

    Dubravka – 8
    Manquillo – 7
    Fernandez – 7
    Schar – 8
    Lascelles – 7
    Aarons – 7
    Shelvey – 8
    Hayden – 7
    Longstaff – 7
    Almiron – 7
    Joelinton – 8.5

    Notable subs

    M. Longstaff – 8
    ASmaximin – 7
    Willems – 7.5
    Muto – 6.5

    Matty Longstaff is almost as an exciting prospect as his brother, ASM some great moments and some cheap giveaways but looks nice and direct. Muto actually made some great runs scored a great finish but ruled offside but then missed a point blank header and missed the target when through on goal.

    Joelinton 2 starts and 2 goals, he is looking like he will hopefully be able to produce the goods this year. Almirons play was good and his goals are coming. Shelvey loving feeding the balls through as predicted

    In my opinion Dwight Gayle will be a better backup striker. He doesn’t look like he can hold the responsibility of that famous number nine shirt. Give him less responsibility and pressure he may respond better
