2007/08 Match Notes & Ratings

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008
by Alex Shilling

Put in some decent crosses until carried off. Might have played last game for us.

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Was looking lively before his untimely exit.

2-1 v Derby County (h) 19th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Early on he kept picking the wrong pass but he did improve as the game progressed and played a vital role in setting up the winner.

1-2 v Sunderland (a) 29th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Caused a few problems in the first half before injury curtailed both his match and, probably, his season.

1-1 v Everton (a) 22nd March 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Made good use of the flanks but still drifted inside too often.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Alex Shilling

Bit quiet in first half. Put in a number of telling crosses in the second however, gave Khizanishvili a few problems.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Infuriating. There were little signs now and then of what he can do but all too often he would go missing from the left hand side where he was needed most, thus giving us a lack of width when we were desperately crying out for it.

0-4 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 10th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Too much running into blind-alley territory for my liking

0-4 v Chelsea (h) 1st March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Maybe he knows what his role is when we play 5 across the middle. I’m damned if I can work it out from his play though. He never seemed to be where he ought to be.

1-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

A funny game really. At times he looked capable of causing problems. Then he’d go missing. Really must learn that if he’s playing on the left he needs to help out Linda from time to time.

1-1 v Birmingham City (h) 9th February 2008
by East Stand Martin

A constant thorn in the side. A proper referee (as opposed to one who appeared to have been recruited from the classified pages of “The Idiot’s Gazette) might have afforded him some protection. Deserved the goal.

1-0 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Annoying. Had an early shot but failed to force the game on the right. Then, when moved over to the left to replace the injured Etherington, he played on the right, the centre in fact just about anywhere but on the left where he was supposed to be. Leaving Linda hopelessly exposed.

1-0 v Liverpool (h) 30th January 2008
by East Stand Martin

Excellent first half. I’d have liked to have seen him get at the already-booked Aurelio a bit more in the second. Brilliant contribution to the goal.

0-1 v Manchester City (a) 16th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

The Boa Morte episode is the kind of moment Ljungberg thrives on, and would put a different spin on his performance. There was no lack of effort but he struggled to really influence the game tonight.

2-1 v Fulham (h) 12th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Was the source of much that was good on the right hand side – one dodgy moment defensively but had a fine game. Perhaps we should kick him in the head before every game.

0-2 v Arsenal (a) 1st January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Was looking better than of late until injury intervened.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by East Stand Martin

A fair bit of chasing about with little result as such. Which sums up his season really.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

Better than of late, he was always buzzing in and around the area. However he tired in the second half and struggled to involve himself.

1-1 v Reading (h) 26th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He could have scored when it was 1-1 but missed. Sadly it is hard to see exactly what else he brings to the party. Could there be more effort?

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

The run was typical of the Swede. He should have scored but it is encouraging that he got into the position. Even so, he faded as the game went on.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of good moments in the first half. Went to Panama in the second. Should have scored.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 1st December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Solano, 74) Disappointing. Brought little to the game in the 20 or so minutes he was on.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by Alex Shilling

Was at the heart of most of our attacks but his distribution was poor at times and he clearly needs to work on his final ball.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by East Stand Martin

Just about his best effort for his new club. Clearly far fitter than he was a month ago.

3-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 15th September 2007
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Ashton, 81) Like Boa-Morte, he was involved in the move that laid on a sitter for Cole late on.
