his corners were appalling, i think he was aiming for the near post, where no one ever was, when he should be aiming for Essandoh, the silly thing was after the 1st 2 he stepped up to take a 3rd, would of thought he'd learned his leasson with the first two. Mousa was lively running from the right to the inside a lot. First half played 4-3-3, with manny, roy, and pinno, and look like we lacked a lot of width which they took advantage of quite well. The referee was quite bad, letting them get away with a lot of very niggling things, like pulling on shirts and hard tackles. Makes me think if they are going to enforce the law for red card offences' like with prothers, then they should at least enforce offence that blatantly deserve yellows.
For us 1st half was a bit lack luster, for a while we did attack well though with pinnock or saunders (hard to tell from the other end as they both look the same), hitting the bar from a good header. Then they scored as one of their player managed to get a clear path to goal and slot it past mitten, who played quite well today.
Early half showed some improvement, but wasnt un till moussa came on that we played some really good attacking football culminating with a good headed goal from Essendoh at the back stick from an excellent cross field ball. Also saunders had a good headed oppertunity from which he did a good job of making contact but his directioning was poor, but was probaly best he could do with a defender infront of him.
MoM for me Moussa as he added that spark to the attack we at periods we seemed to lack
Also didnt quite look the 400-500 fans promised but respect to them for bringing quite a few.
