2013/14 Match Notes & Ratings

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

Brought a spark back to the team.

0-1 v Hull City (a) 28th September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Could be worth a start soon.

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

Forced off with a worrying wrist injury.

2-1 v Cheltenham Town (h) 27th August 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Not quite cut out for the lone striker’s role. Caused them more problems in the second half when getting the ball at his feet though. Absolutely stunning goal – which was followed by a celebration the like of which is seldom encountered outside road rage incidents.

2-3 v Everton (h) 21st September 2013
by Gordon Thrower

Might have done better late on with a free header.

2-3 v Everton (h) 21st September 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Did little. Missed a good chance.

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

A little bit wayward for their goal but seems to have the bit between his teeth following his failure to land a move away last month. The finish for his goal was superb.

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

Might have done better with a late shot but otherwise given little time to have much of an effect.

2-0 v Cardiff City (h) 17th August 2013
by Trevor Twohig

Might have done better with a late shot but otherwise given little time to have much of an effect.

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

Largely ineffective.

 

2012/13 Match Notes & Ratings

4-2 v Reading (h) 19th May 2013
by Gordon Thrower

The change of boots and the goal boosted his confidence no end after an uncertain start.

0-0 v Newcastle United (h) 4th May 2013
by Gordon Thrower

His most memorable contribution was the eternity it took him to leave the field when substituted.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 27th April 2013

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

Felt a bit sorry for him. He reminded me of Boa Morte in that he sometimes seemed to be trying TOO hard. The more he tried the less it was that went right for him.

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

Good poacher’s finish and some nice touches but was a bit too profligate with the ball for my liking.

1-1 v Southampton (a) 13th April 2013

1-0 v Swansea City (h) 2nd February 2013
by Gordon Thrower

A few lively moments and was unfortunate to find Tremmel in such good form in the first half.

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

(Replaced Nolan, 89)
Three minutes was hardly enough time to make an impression.

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

Judged on his normal game this was not one of his more inspiring games. Nevertheless he got through a hell of a lot of the sort of hard work that doesn’t get you noticed.

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

Looked like last week’s miss was preying on his mind and. As a result, looked guilty of sometimes trying TOO hard. Nothing quite worked.

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

Seemed to be a bit in awe of his opponents and just as he seemed to be getting the measure of the game he managed to do himself some mischief.

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

Apart from one cross in the first half that set up Nolan, this was not one of those games that will live long in his memory.

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

Really didn’t look good today. Appeared afraid to take on his defender and his final ball was woeful. He just didn’t have a good game.

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

Quiet in recent weeks, Vaz reacted to losing his place last week in the best possible way. He tormented Fulham throughout the game and some of his wide play was a joy to behold today.

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

Maybe the prospect of new signings had concentrated his mind but this was his best performance in an age. You always got the impression that something was going to happen whenever the ball came his way.

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

(Replaced Tomkins, 46)
Had limited success in wide areas, and he gave us width down both sides when he come on. Won the odd free kick, and caused the defense a few problems, but couldn't use his direct runs to any real effect against a solid Swansea defence.

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

Apart from his role in the goal and one or two touches I thought this was a disappointing run out. Was a bit in and out of the game though there were some nice bits of link up play with Demel from time to time.

 

2011/12 Match Notes & Ratings

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

Not his greatest of games – had a frustrating afternoon for 87 minutes. Most of his mark is awarded for his contribution in the 88th minute.

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

A better performance than he’s shown over the last couple of weeks. Cracking goal – though I still reckon he’d have been better off pulling it back ;-).

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

Some way from his best, although we have been spoiled in recent weeks with a string of high-class performances. Despite notching a fourth successive blank it was his persistance that led to Collison's opener.

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

Seemed very out of sorts and, by the time he was withdrawn, totally knackered. Needs a bit of a rest before Thursday.

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

Has rapidly become a vital part of the side and, when he’s on this sort of form he’s unplayable. His third goal was worth the price of admission alone. If we do get out of this division (by whatever route) he’ll have played a major part. MOTM? Daft question.

2-4 v Reading (h) 31st March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Came into the game more and more as the game wore on. Splendid header for the goal that gave us some brief hope. MOTM – just.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

It was all going so well until he disappeared. Hamstring? That’ll be at least 3 weeks then.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

One of the bright sparks in the game until he was robbed of injury.

1-1 v Watford (h) 7th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced Taylor, 74)
Much better than at Cardiff last weekend. His introduction changed the course of the game and he was the only player in claret and blue likely to make something happen.

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 4th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Like Collison he was heavily involved but it was a bit hit and miss as to whether anything he tried would come off.

0-0 v Crystal Palace (h) 25th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Needs the ball played out to him to give him the chance to run at players. We either didn’t give him the ball or, if we did, we delayed it long enough to have defenders double up on him.

4-1 v Blackpool (a) 22nd February 2012
by James May

Put in a fantastic shift and was rewarded with a fine solo effort late on. Perhaps gives the ball away too often but tries to make things happen and puts himself about.

1-1 v Southampton (h) 14th February 2012
by James May

Impressive first start given the situation. Looked lively on the ball and tries to make things happen. Direct and pacey. Unfortunately had to defend more than we all would have liked after the red card.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 89)
A couple of nice touches. Daft haircut though.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by James May

(Replaced Cole, 89)
Had one chance but after a couple of step overs screwed his shot wide. Looks a big presence up top. Bad hair day.
