By the reports it looks like we were given a footballing lesson last night.
Still, can only learn by experience.
Jimmy Melia's shoes.
You probably missed me in your count, I was sitting with the Cov fans!
To answer a couple of the queries that have cropped up on this thread ...
The players DID have names on the back of their shirts, but you would have needed to be standing next to them to read them. The writing was black and small and impossible to decipher from any sort of distance.
Any scout watching Rohan Ince for the first time must have gone home wondering how such a large imposing figure of a man could be so unimposing and ineffective on a football pitch.
Those of us who have seen a lot more of him know that somewhere deep inside there is definitely a talent lurking, but it didn't show itself tonight, and I'd be surprised if any loan requests surfaced on the strength of tonight's performance.
As mentioned by others, the only player to emerge with any credit from tonight's game will be Sanchez who was excellent, particularly in the first half.
Liam R did nothing wrong, nor did he do anything special, he just eased himself through the 45 minutes that he played.
Hall appeared to be playing reasonably well ... until you remember he was part of a defence that conceded 3 goals, so perhaps my impression of his display is a false one.
Aside from the above, I don't think it would serve any purpose to highlight the performances of any of the youngsters, it was clearly a bridge too far for many of them tonight, but the experience will not have done them any harm.
A fine is a tax for doing wrong.
A tax is a fine for doing well.
Fame at last - see second photo
not sure the need to highlight only 60 away fans.
I actually think that's pretty impressive.
