We've got Nakamaba who gave a good account of himself last match, and now Sanson to come in. Time for Smith to start showing the squad that any sloppy games and they're out.

We still looked too open after we went 2-1 in front. Should've put Nakamba on to help combat their change in formation with the subs coming on.

That Newcastle game was a joke though with it's lack of intensity. Nakamba did well for sure but he's very limited. Barkley must be coming under pressure.

In hindsight, I agree and perhaps Smith might think the same for scenarios like that.

I thought Barkley and McGinn were excellent in the first half. That moment when McGinn was protecting the ball (like he does) and then next second playing a sublime through ball to Watkins blind showed that he's got a picture of the play in his head. In the first half there were a few instances where players had to have a picture in their head of where someone was. Really good understanding that comes from playing with the same people regularly.

In the second half, there was too much of a gap between the defence and the midfield and as a result, the defence weren't being protected well enough.

Agree, should have put Nakamba on for McGinn or Barkley and put Trezeguet on for Traore.

Yep, make those two changes and gone 4-4-1-1.  No need to bust a gut to get a third goal, just control the ball, control the game and take the pressure off the defence.  Play out time and get them more frustrated thus leaving gaps at the back for Ollie and Jack to exploit.

Hadnít realised that OM had been in such poor form, apparently 300 fans set about the training complex today and their league game has had to be called off.

Puzzled to why he received no game time for a home debut today ?
Expected to see him play some part.
In time I suspect. 


He came on against West Ham in the last game.

No need to rush him in. We had 6 games in 18 days, it was always going to be hectic. Time to have a proper look at him in the remaining games will come.

It took Traore a few games of being on the bench before he got his chance, and I expect it will be the same for Sanson.

Sign of a team on the up when you can ease a highly-rated new player in gradually.

With games so finely balanced chucking a new player in isnít always a good idea.
