I remember being at Ipswich not long after we signed him and you could tell then that we'd signed a cracking player. 2.5m was an absolute steal.

All thanks to how Nan's Hair wooed him over dinner at a Brum hotel. Thanks Steve. And thanks the other Steve, for working hard to get Bouba here. The best things both managers did for us cos let's face it, they were dodgy as fook in the dug-out...

He didn't have the game he did on Wednesday, but that little shuffle, right-left, no-fuss blind throughball to Bailey for the goal is just total class.

Like most of the team he looked knackered but that's no surprise after the effort put in against Manchester City. The manager made great substitutions last night to freshen the midfield up after the work they have put in.

I suppose he's a little tired after the week, but he was subbed yesterday, which I thought was fair. I noticed him shaking his head and not looking particularly thrilled, but it was slight, and he'll have plenty of game time.
Similarly, Kamara coming off had a look of mystified. But that's just players who want to play.

Emery utilises the subs well and knows how to work the squad.
Dendocker was ok in many respects apart from a shocking pass on his left foot in midfield across the pitch going out if play he generally managed to play his role well.

Agreed, the Donk put in some good tackles to help see things out.

That pass straight out of play, after doing so much good dirty work, was such pure Donkery I burst out laughing.

And I don't mean in a cruel way! There's an important place for a guy you can bring on in midfield to just fuck shit up. I just thought it was funny.

You could see what he was trying to do, just one of those where he wasn't quite on the same wavelength as the intended recipient. I was surprised at how many times Arsenal did something similar to be honest, must have been at least 3 or 4.

As I said to my companion, Im as sure as shit Donk wasnt bought on to hit 60 yard crossfield balls. Apart from that I liked what he did, made tackles and kept the shape tight.

Yeah in good positions too, they'd just whomp it out of play.

Honestly, the balls on this Unai Emery. You're 1-0 up in a cage fight of a match against one of the real title-contenders, and you bring on a somewhat embattled midfielder who's made several mistakes in the last year and hasn't had many minutes recently - and it works a charm. The guy's actually a madman.

Emery had spotted that wed lost Havertz making runs in that channel a few times so on came the Donk, Havertz neutralised.

Anyone know what Youri's injury is? Obviously he didn't make the Brentford game, hopefully he's fit for Friday night. Losing him and Kamara from midfield isn't great. I think he last played against Arsenal and was subbed?

Anyone know what his actual injury is?  Emery confirmed he is not in the squad tomorrow.   He was playing really well when he came off against Arsenal.

I saw a recent injury update from John Townley from the Birmingham Mail. He gave a confusing update saying he has an ankle injury. Then, later in the article he said he's got a calf strain?? He probably knows as much as we do!
