And so a new era dawns and I finally know exactly who it is that will have their signature on the cheque for £4.21 that will no doubt be on its way to Gnome Towers in return for the one twenty-millionth of the club that I currently own.

Player RatingsRobert Green
One good save, a few less testing ones but might be a tad lucky to have got away with the disallowed goal.
Continues to impress on the right.
Ok on the ground but lost out a lot in the air where he was targeted by the opposition.
Battled well and dealt with the route one stuff admirably.
Was playing well up to his untimely finish. Hopefully his hamstring problem isn?EUR(TM)t as bad as it looks.
Another excellent performance capped with a deserved goal. harshly booked.
Got into promising positions on a number of occasions only to muff the shot.
Seemed a yard off the pace and slipped over a lot ?EUR" I know it was wet but other players didn?EUR(TM)t seem to have the same problem.
A lot of hard work on both wings. Nice corner for the goal.
Continues to improve and can consider himself unlucky to be sacrificed towards the end. May be a few grand out of pocket on Monday though.
A lot of running and hard work but the time is approaching when that won?EUR(TM)t be enough ?EUR" never really looked like scoring.
(Replaced Gabbidon, 64) Coped alright once he?EUR(TM)d settled down alongside Anton.
(Replaced Tevez, 66) Some good touches and nearly set up Harewood.
(Replaced Zamora, 73) Put himself about a bit but ought to have nicked the second when through on goal.
Did not play.
