Bloody hell Nyambe is destroying them, can’t believe some want to sell him on the cheap before his contract runs out  He’s a crown Jewell 

A very enjoyable game for a pre-season friendly and a very encouraging performance, particularly in the second half.  Felt sorry for Fisher who made a couple of clangers but otherwise did OK.  I thoug

Managers say all kinds of crap about each other before and after games. It’s just football politics. We had managers telling us all how good Kean was when he was here. Not a single one of them offered

We've looked pretty decent. Can't really fault anyone's performance - Armstrong and Brereton not involved enough so far, but that's about it. Williams passing has been off on a few occasions, but otherwise he's looked solid. All the youngsters have done well!

Is that the proposed starting line-up against Bournemouth? 

Is Lenihan out? Also think Johnson will definitely play given he has started all recent friendlies.

Decent first half. Holtby the playmaker and Johnson looking fitter, haven’t noticed Travis much. Personally I didn’t think it was a great ball by Nyambe, there was no way Armstrong was getting to it without being offside. Restricting a top 6 club to one long range effort on goal isn’t bad for any defence, let alone this one.

Missed the first 30 mins but I think we've done ok. 

Nyambe looks more composed in the last third. Couple of excellent crosses.

Holtby's passing is good.

Our closing down has been excellent at times - well organised.

Gotta love Travis.  When there's no need he'll still have a nibble, even if they're on the floor. He must be horrible to play against ?

Nyambe our best player in that half. He will be a prem player at some point. Holtby been impressive too. Magloire showing that he’s probably the best of the young centre halves that are coming through the academy. Bell has done surprisingly well so far.

Bell justifiably gets a lot of stick. But he had a decent half there against a good winger.

After a shakey start, hes done well.

Brereton has been abysmal when tracking back. Hes the next Jason Lowe, runs up to people and does nothing. Didn't even attempt to stick a leg out to block crosses.

Decent bit of football there. Johnson normally arrows them on target.

Really quick thinking and quick feet from JRC too. Seemed like the split second he saw Johnson was there he played a perfect pass to him.

I’d love to see @JoeH do a heat map on Brereton that half. He must’ve spent a total of about 12 seconds in their box and never got beyond the penalty spot. For all the talk of him needing to play as a centre forward, it just doesn’t look like that is his game.

Will be posting Individual player heat-maps on twitter on Sunday when they’re out. Brereton seemed completely non-existent that half. I’d have Dolan on and push Armstrong completely central.

He's never going to be a box player. He's an inside forward who can dribble a bit and that's about it.

Yes Dolan would actually give their full back a lot to think about. Won't know what hit him.
