Get yourself some Bluetooth headphones mate, great when Mrs blueloon is watching Corrie and me football .I only started watching it after 20 minutes and without the commentary as the missus had the TV on.
i thought I was watching John at RB not realising he had gone off injured. I was really impressed with Iverson defensively (he made one great challenge on the goal line at the end when they broke down the right), and also the acceleration he showed a couple of times as he brought the ball out of defence. I'd really like to see him in an attacking unit with him providing the overlap. No chance of that with Unsy at the helm.
I’m going to defend Unsworth here, despite being still scarred from last seasons 5-5 formation, I can genuinely see positive changes in his team and their play. His starting line up with Broadhead and Bowler our wide supporting Simms was as close to our first team formation I’ve seen attacking wise. Onyango was played further forward and had more involvement in attacking moves and shots than he’s ever done, Hughes despite playing out of position was an attacking threat with his passing , last season Anderson , a defender would have been the replacement.
With Dobbin injured he had no real attacking options on the bench but we still produced a lot of good attacking moves, particularly 2nd half . Seb Quirk on for the tiring Onyango was also positive, again in previous years he’d have likely brought on Anderson, moved Connolly inside to 3rd CB and closed out the game .
Early days yet but with Simms in such exciting form , Dobbin, Hunt , Carroll to return I can see lots of positives when the older ones are loaned or moved on .
