Gimme some ratings. Is De Vries as fit as he sounds like?
:icon_lol:It sounds like, is that better?
Interesting that Hume was skipper
De Vries was very fast and sharp - could edge out Hume for a starting slot alongside DJC. Clemence and Chambers were also impressive. Sappleton looked awesome for a 17 yr old. The likeness to Heskey is uncanny. Tried to kick their goalie into Row Z!
If that's true, that's the biggest miracle since Lazarus!
I'd say the bit about De Vries is a bit over the top. But to be fair he played very well, showed some nice touches and held the ball up well didn't really get an opportunity on goal. Clemence and Kishishev looked good in the centre. N'gotty looked quality at the back and you can tell he has some class about him despite being 37. Joe Mattock also looked good when he came on. Everyone played well to be honest, Johnny Hayes was not as impressive as he was last week though. Good workout and Notts County were a decent opposition who tried to play some good football.
panic not, theres no way de Vries will edge Hume out. Out of 10 today Hume was probably a 7, de Vries 5
If Hume keeps scoring like he has been over the last few weeks nobody will edge him out.
I Remember Dion Dublin scoring loads in pre season once......
MDV played some good balls through to Hume to give him a chance on goal and am pretty sure he can claim at least one 'assist'. I think the fact that MDV started alongside Hume rather than Fryatt and played most of the game shows that MA certainly thinks he is in contention. I assume the ones we saw today will be the squad going to Scotland. Mandaric also said there possibly two or three more signings to come!
Have you ever thought of doing stand up comedy? Hume had a good game today and took his goal superbly, he has scored, i believe, in every pre season game he has played in, Devries on the other hand hasn't and doesnt even look like scoring. Best player on the pitch today was chambers, this lad looks like a superb signing; he did everything a good left back should, great deep runs forward and never caught out. Weso did well when he came on. Worst performance was from shaun newton who im affraid does not understand the meaning of possitioning. Most exciting for the future (cant tell from one game i know) was eric odihambo, looked very dangerous.
Did Newton play left or right?
If that is the case I'd be inclined to play him ahead of DeVries.
right, but pretty much wherever he felt like playing
Very impressed with Sappleton and Odhiambo. Thought Chambers was superb. Clemence and Kishishev were very good in the middle. Still not sure about Nielsen and Hellings, both very average at best.
What about our record signing Smith that came on for the last 2 mins. And to get man-of-the-match as well....quality!
Told you so about Supplebum didn't I?
