I see Adama Traore has knocked in a couple.  Is he actually good now?

He was very good yesterday. Whether he can maintain some consistency is open to question.

That kind of electric pace is always dangerous, but it's seemingly taken until now for anybody to channel it properly.

Kozak is doing well for Sparta Prague, since joining them in Feb this is his scoring record for each league game he has played

1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 3, 0, 1, 0, 1, 3.

Wow, really?  I thought he had retired after we had to release him due to his failure to recovery from that injury. Delighted that he's back playing and scoring.

Adama Traore is the most fouled player, in terms of yellow cards, in English football this season. 25 yellow cards for opponents . 25 different players have been booked for deliberately fouling him. Those fouls must be pretty bad as Adama has won 42 fouls

Grealish considering he's been fouled 79 times, doesn't seem to have the opponents booked as much.
I can only think the flying pace thing is one of the issues. Because Jack has twice as many fouls against him than old boy Traore

I watched Vale v Swindon today. Lyden came on for the Robins very early doors, and was absolutely ineffective. Tried to be a fancy dan, and left the pitch without a speck of mud on his shorts. He'll be gone the end of the season.

Ashley Young off to Inter Milan  Good luck to him.
I like how he has great respect for Petrov and supported him during his illness.
I also think he's been a great pro and it's good effort to his athleticism that he still going.
Proper leader these days and says a lot man utd wanted to keep him but he thought better of it !

It was a penalty. It was also a dive after the event, but it was nailed on. He got a rare bollocking from Ferguson for it.

Young always went down easily. I seem to recall him buying a couple of cheap free kicks that led to goals against Small Heath. I didn't particularly applaud him for it but I didn't particularly knock it for him either.

I do wonder what our perception of Grealish on this regard will be like once he goes?

I always thought Young was quite brave beyond his physique. He was pretty spindly during his time with us, but he was never shy about challenges.

his over-exaggerating antics used to piss me off.

Grealish takes a lot more kicks that Young did - and he handles it way better.
