perhaps we can slip-in a few slightly older players who need to find their form. including a couple of our wingers who are off-the-boil?
I've only been flicking to the stream when the bench noise goes up a notch, but does Thompson look a bit out of step? Usually first teamers dropping down have an assurance/presence about them, but since he passed it straight out of play for a corner about 30 seconds in, he's looked not out of place in this XI.
Its why I am surprised Daniels was offered a longer contractBalcombe seems to be improving. He wasn't great on the ball before but he was looking way more comfortable today, even coming out of his area to sweep up a few times and pinging out some passes to the wide players. Came for a couple of crosses too. If he can add that to his undoubtable shot stopping talent he'll be a hell of a keeper. With him and Gunnarsson doing so well on loan we're not doing badly with keepers at the mo..
