Just watched the highlights back and I have to ask, is Lucas out best 10 right now? Also the more I see of John the more I want the kid to make the first team.
Amen indeed!I remember when we beat the Os 5-0 or something in pre season and we all thought Giovanni Dos Santos was the second coming and Darren Bent was the new Jimmy Greaves (or John Duncan at least). The next season started with 2 points from 8 games.
Pre-season is for getting fit. Not quite time to be talking serious relegation fears.
They might have done a periodised block of 5 days hard training culminating in this… I wouldn’t read anything into itVery dissapointed from the senior players
Dele/Bergwijn/Winks very poor , Dele in particular was AWFUL
They need to be far better.
Ultimately result doesn't matter. Most of the first team missing. Lots of youth and its all just FITNESS.
Players need to build up fitness. Won't know formations , philopshy etc.. I'll start to worry in a couple of weeks. (Although am worried about some of those senior players)
Clarke didn't start but let's see if he does in the next game.Fair enough. I’m not sure if he is where he ought to be in his development to be honest. I hope we see Sessegnon in the same position in a game soon for comparison.
Nuno said himself that ALL of the preseason to date is about fitness, they've not worked on any tactical stuff whatsoever so far.only watched the first half but couldn't see any style of play
yes winks was a bit more forward thinking but its was the O's
for me(in the EPL team ) there is only 1 spot for Dele that's in & around the striker
I was not that impressed with Devine today to be honest. I didn't think he stood out at all. I was more impressed with more or less the entire left flank. Eyoma, Bowden and Clarke. That's where things happened after we made the subs.Nile John looks ready for a loan to me, very exciting player.
Devine the only sub who really stood out to me. You can see Clarke has a level of quality that most of them don't but he'll need a very good loan to bring it out of him.
Perplexed by Bergwijn.
