Marko looked good some at teeing up today good on set pieces and missed some shots but his assists are welsomed. Glad Rice played and Sead. Holland and Quina got on. Not sure why put Chica on for Sahko. But moment of the match was Arthur Masuaku’s screamer….. He should def be our LWB with his pace power dribble needs to get better at defending but still young can learn these traits.
But what a shot in case u missed it:
Check out Arthur’s 25 yard Screamer:
Confidence is building , JRS . Be happy . Three games without conceding is a nice injection to get us moving . Sakho was given his chance and did very well . Chicerito needed an appearance to build his confidence up . Out of position but , played . It was a Cup game which historically throws up the odd nasty kick in the teeth . We got through it where other teams didn’t , just be grateful . What I thought was a nice thing to see was a few youngsters getting a run out . We keep moaning ( and rightfully so ) at times but , the teams that went out of the EFL tonight are in worse nick than us . If Bilic can keep his instincts at bay and stick with a two or three up front we could be looking at a reasonable season .
Let’s just get out there on Saturday and Peel them Spuds . Oh no ! It’s happened again .
