If you thought George Boyd was 'superb', then quite frankly you have no understanding of the game whatsoever.bristleposh wrote: ↑17 Aug 2019, 19:50Did you actually watch that game, he was superb, most of our defending down the left hand side and the attacking was down to him and Tracy Barlow, if the right hand side had been as defensively secure we wouldn't have been in such difficulty at the back. I'm prepare to forgive Mason as we're only four games in but two free kicks conceded which gave goals away, and one today that really should have been a red card, and could well have cost us another goal, needs to eradicate from his game. Who on earth was supposed to be marking the goal scorer at the death.
Just because he runs a lot does not mean he's playing well.
He's so slow it's untrue, his passing is ok if he keeps it under 10 yards and his clearances from defence almost reached the edge of the box - our box.
Back to the game (for those who understand), the new left back had a corker, Beavers looked solid, Kent was ok but a sending off waiting to happen & Mason needs replacing by the new guy.
Reed was superb in the middle - the only midfielder on the books who can pass it. Knight is aggressive but sometimes looks like a centre half playing in midfield. Eisa was ok, not brilliant but hopefully the goal will get him going. Then there was Maddison & Toney - where would be without their assists and goals?
I think we would have won if Ferguson had replaced Boyd with Dembele with 20 minutes to go. That would have kept us on the front foot rather than dropping deeper and deeper. Toney was the only outlet at the end & he was knackered.
