3-1 v Liverpool (h) 20th September 2014
by Raedwulf

A typically solid Demel performance was epitomised in the 15th minute when he stole the ball from Borini, turned full circle (which Paul Walker hates!) and fed it up the touchline.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 16th August 2014
by Raedwulf

(Replaced O'Brien) Was two steps too far back, playing Dier onside for the goal, but otherwise defended well enough & tried to get forward in support of Downing.

by Trevor Twohig

(Replaced O'Brien) Was two steps too far back, playing Dier onside for the goal, but otherwise defended well enough & tried to get forward in support of Downing.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 16th August 2014
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced O'Brien) As unspectacular as O'Brien, who he had replaced had been.

2-2 v Hull City (a) 15th September 2014
by Raedwulf

You can make a very good case it should have been Sakho, but my Man of the Match.

 

2013/14 Match Notes & Ratings

1-3 v Norwich City (a) 9th November 2013
by Staff Writer

Supported the attack well before the break but rarely got forward in the second half. Made a couple of important blocks to deny Norwich.

2-0 v Aston Villa (a) 8th February 2014
by Raedwulf

Rock solid again. He did make one or two small errors, as he has done from time to time this season. Gave away a dangerous free kick on 78 minutes, but also cleared it. He won't get Hammer of the Year, but if there was a special award for dogged consistency, I reckon he'd be in with a real good shout!

1-4 v Liverpool (a) 7th December 2013
by Staff Writer

An own goal and responsible (partly) for another. Not his greatest day.

3-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 6th October 2013
by Trevor Twohig

A solid game.

1-2 v Liverpool (h) 6th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Has been a bit average in the last couple of games but, one error aside, had a good game today, offensively and defensively. Took his goal well; a definite MoM candidate.

2-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 3rd May 2014
by Raedwulf

Wasn't overly troubled in defence, was dangerous working forward, including more than one good chance to score. If he were 5 years younger, we'd be sorted up the right for several seasons, with him and Downing working well together.

2-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 3rd May 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Spurs' lack of attacking threat allowed him to get forward to good effect.

2-1 v Sunderland (a) 31st March 2014
by Raedwulf

Solid game all night, the highlight being the closing down of Borini on 70, making him screw a shot wide.

0-1 v Stoke City (h) 31st August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Ok first half but struggled against Pennant when stripped of the protection afforded to him by Downing.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Some endeavour shown.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Gordon Thrower

A bit patchy but defensively at least he looked pretty sound.

0-0 v Aston Villa (h) 2nd November 2013
by Rob Chapman

Another excellent game from one of our unsung heroes. Defended calmly and confidently, but really came into his own as an attacking force.

3-3 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 28th December 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Didn't really add anything to proceedings.

3-3 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 28th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Ran around a lot...

0-0 v Swansea City (a) 27th October 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Had a good game but should perhaps have scored with a heder from a corner.

2-1 v Hull City (h) 26th March 2014
by Raedwulf

Much as he was against Man Utd, adequate if a little below his own decent average.

0-1 v West Bromwich Albion (a) 26th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Solid enough performance on his return.

0-0 v Newcastle United (a) 24th August 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Solid performance, not a lot to write home about.

0-3 v Chelsea (h) 23rd November 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Has skill – but defensive error cost us.

0-3 v Chelsea (h) 23rd November 2013
by Gordon Thrower

A good run in the second half but it was his blunder that allowed Oscar's dive to take place.

0-2 v Manchester United (h) 22nd March 2014
by Raedwulf

Solid defensively, but a bit wayward with his distribution.

3-1 v Southampton (h) 22nd February 2014
by Raedwulf

Unspectacular (which is going to be a theme here...)

3-1 v Southampton (h) 22nd February 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Basically sound but there were a few worryingly wayward passes that invited pressure.

0-1 v Everton (a) 1st March 2014
by Raedwulf

Showed what a reliable defender he is yet again. Stood up well a couple of times when he might have dived in.

1-2 v Fulham (a) 1st January 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Gave the ball away too much in a series of panicky clearances.

2-0 v Swansea City (h) 1st February 2014
by Raedwulf

His usual hard working, dependable self. Defended well, got forward well, too.

2-0 v Swansea City (h) 1st February 2014
by Gordon Thrower

Not given much to do defensively in the first half whe he got forward well. Had a lot of covering to do after Flores' maiming but tracked his men well.

1-3 v Manchester City (h) 19th October 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Stuck to his task well before hobbling off in the second half.

2-0 v Cardiff City (h) 17th August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Not much to do defensively and he contributed well on the attacking side of things. Some nice signs of a proper understanding with Cole beginning to develop.

1-3 v Arsenal (a) 15th April 2014
by Raedwulf

Had a very good game, I thought. Peach of a pass to pick out Nocerino for our goal.

0-0 v Southampton (h) 14th September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Played well – went off injured.

0-0 v Sunderland (h) 14th December 2013
by Trevor Twohig

A solid game.

0-0 v Sunderland (h) 14th December 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Looked a little off the pace – possibly as a result of the unspecified illness from which he spent the week .

0-2 v Manchester City (a) 11th May 2014
by Raedwulf



2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 11th January 2014
by Trevor Twohig

Injured early on.

2-0 v Norwich City (h) 11th February 2014
by Raedwulf

Not one of his better games, but got away with getting beaten a couple of times...

4-2 v Reading (h) 19th May 2013

Went a bit AWOL early in the second half but otherwise a steady 90 minutes.

2-0 v Wigan Athletic (h) 20th April 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Had a couple of problems with Beausejour immediately after he came on but recovered his composure to have another decent game.

2-2 v Manchester United (h) 17th April 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Continues to improve well – defended superbly and got forward to support Vaz Te on the right. Involved in Diame’s goal.

2-3 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 25th February 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Stuck to his task well throughout but he never seems to convince going forward.

1-1 v Queens Park Rangers (h) 19th January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Did not play.

2-2 v Manchester United (h) 5th January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced J.Cole, 78)
Most notable contribution was getting something on Collison’s knock-down that nearly led to Cole putting the game beyond reach.

2-1 v Norwich City (h) 1st January 2013
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Jarvis, 85)
Another quiet sub cameo.

3-1 v Chelsea (h) 1st December 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Had some dodgy moments against Moses but stuck to the task and eventually saw off his tormentor.

1-3 v Arsenal (h) 6th October 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Stuck to his task well under difficult circumstances up to his untimely departure.

1-1 v Sunderland (h) 22nd September 2012
by Gordon Thrower

One early lapse aside he wasn’t tested defensively. The withdrawal of Vaz Te, with whom he combines well, reduces his force going forward.

0-0 v Norwich City (a) 15th September 2012
by Robert Watson

Defended solidly and kept the Norwich wingers fairly quiet. He was always trying to bomb on in the attack but lacked that killer ball.

3-0 v Fulham (h) 1st September 2012
by Stuart Jones

Concentrated more on his defensive duties than when playing here against Villa a fortnight ago but Fulham got no change from him whatsoever.

3-0 v Fulham (h) 1st September 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Continues to improve out of all recognition from the player who had such a dodgy play-off final. Combined well with Vaz Te and treated us to a cheeky back heel in the second half.

0-3 v Swansea City (a) 25th August 2012
by Tom Kilbey

Largely built on his first game, looking strong and quick. When Jarvis was on the right, he would do well to get forward more and help Jarvis to deliver crosses from wide areas.

1-0 v Aston Villa (h) 18th August 2012
by Gordon Thrower

A much better game than his last run-out (at Wembley). Harder tests will come and I remain to be totally convinced but there were a few signs of a nice right side combination developing with Vaz Te.

 

2011/12 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Blackpool (n) 19th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

A bit of a shocker really. Looked well off the pace before his injury-prompted substitution. Maybe a full pre-season will help .

3-0 v Cardiff City (h) 7th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Continues to improve – not least with the quality of his delivery into the box which has gone from being laughable in his early matches to being genuinely dangerous over the past couple of weeks.

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 3rd May 2012
by Staff Writer

A much better performance and no hint of the silly mistake that cost a goal the previous weekend against Hull.

2-1 v Hull City (h) 28th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of good blocks but still doesn’t have to have got the pace of the game yet. Not the greatest of crossers and quite what he was up to for their goal lord alone knows.

6-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 14th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Lacks a little bit of match fitness – understandably so given the rotten luck he’s had with injury.
