I love a good moan, but who played badly today?

Excellent

Coventry looked like he played for years.

Brilliant

Fredericks ------------------------- Johnson
-------------- Coventry Noble --------------
------------------ Fornals -------------------
------------ Bowen Benrahma -------------

Impressive display that.

Incisive, direct passing. Good pressing and intensity. Benhrahma and Fornals stood out.

With our adaptability in shapes I actually think we can get away with just a striker and centre back, so I'm starting to understand Moyes' transfer strategy: prioritise and execute.

Benrahma getting more and more imbedded in the team, its showing. He's growing in confidence and starting to look like a very good player.

Coventry, his short, long range passing is exceptional as are his through balls and positional awareness. He could become more than I had even expected.

Fornals is just fun to watch isn't he?

Fredericks gets a shout out for a huge improvement over his poor showing last week.

Thanks. I only saw snippets of the game. Was expecting to see Odubeko.

We look very well organised and confident , some of the players on the fringe looked pretty good, 2 or 3 players in it will make a hell pf a difference quality over quantity.

That was very encouraging indeed. Even with the five subs we looked in control.
Atalanta are no mugs of course.
Roll on next weekend. :wolfy:
