Bowen’s performance was more or less identical to Benny’s. Both players very lively and involved but very much a mixed bag in terms of end product. Bowen got caught in possession and picked the wrong option several times throughout the game. One of the two will be deemed to have a had a good game the other will be tagged “frustrating” and “wasteful”.

I don't agree with selling Antonio, mostly because I just don't think we'd get any sort of fee out of him and he still has his uses in the squad.

I'd like us to being in a young understudy like Man City have with Alvarez.

Antonio is brilliant option to have especially in these European fixtures. The ref today actually looked after him for once.

I thought Bowen was excellent! Funny how different people see the game.
Bowen gave their left back a lot torrid time in the fist half.. Set up a glorious chance for Benny to blaze over. Looked the sharpest I’ve seen him this season.
Benny’s final balls again were very poor or he lost possession easily when we were attacking. It’s frustrating seeing him show little glimpses of magic but 9 times out of 10 he will lose the ball.

majority teams in Coference cup are at mid table Championship level or worse...this match was good to boost the confidence, but WHU players were having much more space, much more time and opponents were giving away the ball much more easier than any team of Premier league table bottom...
That is a fact.
build up play was pretty good, but 0:1 is not that much to cheer for...
Fulham will be back on Earth game. there is still lot of work to be done..

It's on YouTube to see - it wasn't a criticism of either, it was actually giving massive credit to where we've come from to where we are now - but at least you got a couple of 'likes' for it, so every cloud.
I already said that I didn't hear it.

I also don't know what you've got the hump about.

But ok, Paqueta is a dud and our all-time Premier League top scorer should be moved on.

Bowen did that at least three or four times in the second half alone.

FWIW I though they both had pretty good games and the whole team played well.

I thought Ogbonna and Benrahma were the ones that struggled, but we got the win, rested many of our key players and got star turns from our two big money signings.

A very good night.
