Brighton & Hove Albion

6-0: Saturday, 14th April

(Replaced Vaz Te, 77)
Another who was looking to impress – might even have done so given a bit more pitch-time.

Nottingham Forest

2-1: Saturday, 21st January

Did not play.

Portsmouth

1-0: Saturday, 14th January

Did not play.

Barnsley

1-0: Saturday, 17th December

Held the ball up well but never looked particularly mobile – with or without the back spasms.

Burnley

1-2: Saturday, 3rd December

(Replaced O'Brien, 80) Barely involved, a bit of a passenger.

Derby County

3-1: Saturday, 26th November

(Replaced Cole, 76) Some nice hold-up/lay off play in the last period.

Coventry City

2-1: Saturday, 19th November

There were three reasons for Carew’s poor showing. 1) Playing him up front on his own gave him no support. 2) Refereeing – he was pulled up for fouls far too often without justification. 3) He had a poor game anyway.

Hull City

2-0: Saturday, 5th November

Not really in the game today – possibly still suffering from the knock that kept him out in midweek, which would account for his withdrawal at half time.

Blackpool

4-0: Saturday, 15th October

Held the ball up superbly and rarely wasted the layoff. If one were to be churlish one might have hoped for more than the one goal he came away with, and he really owes Baldock a pint for not passing when his strike partner was much better placed. A fine performance nevertheless.

Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 1st October

(Replaced Collison, 68) Held the ball up well and automatically looked better than Cole as the simultaneous introduction of Baldock meant that he had someone alongside him throughout. Nice bit of movement for the goal.

Ipswich Town

0-1: Tuesday, 27th September

(Replaced Cole, 64) Replaced Cole. Difficult to tell the difference really.

Peterborough

1-0: Saturday, 24th September

(Replaced Cole, 56) The Norwegian looked a lot sharper than when appearing here last against Leeds United. He could prove to be a major asset as the season wears on.

Nottingham Forest

4-1: Sunday, 28th August

Did not play.

Aldershot Town

1-2: Wednesday, 24th August

Evidently not fit but produced little to show that he might be a major threat for the Hammers this season.

Leeds United

2-2: Sunday, 21st August

(Replaced Cole, 67 mins) Opinions are mixed. I thought he held the ball up well myself.
