The joys of KUMB
I actually enjoyed the match and thought it a good run out for a friendly... and saw some very good football in small threads of play.
I actually thought Davenport had a good game, was worried by Swiss Tonys attitude (esp at the back) and thought Faubert was our worst player. Getting knocked off the ball by a kid half your size when you are built like a Battleship was worrying...chucked in with shedloads of pointing at players to do his spadework for him when tracking back.
The goal from Hines was a lovely move and I thought Nobes made the difference in the 2nd.
Good to see a few old faces there tonight
It's not often I get to games so I thoroughly enjoyed it, I agree in patches there was some very good pieces of play unfortunately they were interspersed with a lot of dross
I thought the passing improved when Noble came on and thought Parker had worked quite hard in the 1st half without really achieving much. Hines' goal was good and I thought he did pretty well but needs to be a bit stronger on the ball.
I agree with your assesment of Berahmi & Faubert if we go into the season with them on the right side showing the attitude toward defence they showed Friday, we'll have a problem.
