Image for All 2 Goals, Player Ratings & Expert Analysis …pffffft

Hello Honky Tonks.

We done ’em. Eventually. Which is possibly harsh, but true. 

The first half was pretty mediocre. I only watched from about 20 odd minutes in but it was all a bit pace-less. Picture two Championship at Wembley for the first time, trying to get to grips with the size of the pitch and the occasion.

Eventually, Adebayor kept his head and slotted his debut goal away. Not long after Defoe scored, leaving Wolves looking pretty fangless. 

On Wolves, a mention of Jamie O’Hara. Something happened at some stage between him and Bale. Maybe Bale isn’t even aware of this thing whatever it is, but in young Jamie’s mind it certainly exists. 

Brad  6 Some naff kicks out. Must do better

A&E 7 Bit of a love, really

Walker 6.43 Generally good. Needs a bigger brain

Kaboul  5.98 Frequently in a china shop

King  5  Sluggish

Krankie  5.9 Modest contributions

Modric 7.73 Some sublime balls (that’s what she said) but several wasted

Parker 7.72 Good stuff, looked like a Pathe News clip when running

Bale 7.61 To be frank, he needs to start raising his game soon…

Adebayor 8 He brought hope

Defoe 7 Great little goal from the midget (occasional) gem

    Are our two debut makers an upgrade on what we had?
    You betcha!!

  • Lodvic says:

    Wat no Kaboul?

  • CyprusYid says:

    It looks like Ade and Defoe are going to team up all season and that should bring goals that we lacked, last year coming from the front players. It’s the start and I’m already relishing future games with better understanding, especially against the Goon squad! Bring’em on!

  • Andy says:

    Harsh on King, the back 4 looked pretty assured with him in it today all though he misplaced a few passes but there was no way he was our worst player. Kaboul looks so much better beside him than he does with dawson.

    A center forward who stays on his feet, holds up play with a good first touch – we woulda been champions league if this had happened last season.

      Sadly true.
      Spurs strikers contributed 17 goals which is the fewest goals of any Premier League team last season. And yet we still we finished 5th despite that. Put Ade or any decent striker in last season and we would be in the CL now.
      Friedel, Parker, Adebayor all did great and King is just an awesome player. A good all round performance. A big well done for Adebayor for scoring on your debut and setting up the win!
