Sunderland Game?

PostMon Aug 22, 2016 12:42 am

Watched on a stream only but I was pretty chuffed with the first half, largely controlled and two superb goals from Stuani

Second half I thought a few player just looked out of sorts and needed to step up the pace a bit, was a bit concerned with Guzan as he seemed to fumble 3-4 balls but did make a very good stretching save...maybe just first game nerves?

Fantastic result though and I'd take the three points every day with a far worse display against Sunderland. With a win under our belt I'm hoping that confidence will be high going in to the next games.

Guzman was decent, but agree on the worrying few spills he made. Definitely slow to react on the goal as well after the initial parry.

Adomah looked injured about 2 mins after coming on, something not right with him at all.

We bossed the first half after Sunderlands quick start, and the 2nd half was more even. I thought we lost a bit of shape/composure around 70/75 mins in which was similar to Stoke. Suspect its the concentration levels of the premier league and everyone just settling down. Plus start of season fitness too.
