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

szólj hozzá: Wol 0-2 Tot

    Ran like someone from a pathe newsreel !!!! LOVE IT ! He even wears black boots which are as alien as a loyal player these days. The good win was glossed over by news that VDV is making a speedy recovery. Keep him benched for now give 4-4-2 a chance please. Bale get your finger out !!!

    • Dutchman says: seem to have a very short-term memory..(Or is it too many Temple Bar visits and drinks..:)
      Who exactly was our topscorer last season..?

  • Dublin Yid says:

    Mr. Dutch. My memory is fine thank you. Temple bar is more for tourists so you probably know more about it than me my friend :-) VDV was our top scorer and what a great player he is no doubt. The point I’m trying to make is that he is neither a forward or a midfielder and that can make it difficult for any manager to set his team up. Madrid had the same problem. I love the guy but the only way he would fit into any team would be a 4-3-3 formation or 3-5-2 which we don’t have the right players for. My point is we need stabity in our formation and if 4-4-2 is the best solution then that poses a selection problem as to what do we do with VDV.
