    Hang on a minute. Gale also said how "classy" Stephens was.
    I also think Stephens was indeed classy in his performance today.

    Stephens has always been a classy player. He just lacks the consistency and influence needed to play for the likes of England.

      Schelotto who wasted countless opportunities for first time crosses/passes by trying and failing to beat his man? Good defensive display, not his usual self going forwards.
      Bong (who I have defended tirelessly on here) the one most directly responsible other than Shaqiri himself for their goal?
      Jose was so bloody good because Stephens repeatedly and quickly kept finding him out wide.
      Dunk, I'll give you this one, ran him close.
      Propper also - very poor to the build up of the goal if we are picking.

      You're now making it sound like we played pretty badly today and were carried by 2 men.

      A good team performance and a great team goal.
      If you looked at my ratings you'd have seen that 4 players had exceptional games and another 3/4 played well, in my opinion.

      Altogether worthy of 3 points.

      You've given Propper a 6 and Stephens a 9?

      How does that work? They both played well and were very comparable in performance.

      Totally agree, which is why I said the same thing earlier.

      I do think he had a really good game today though.

      He's not alone. I did that too.
      Propper had three excellent goalscoring opportunities. Credit to him for getting in those positions but, from memory, he didn't get a single one on target. I think @sllugaes would like to point out that his misdirected header played a considerable part in the goal we conceded too, but I might be wrong on that

      He was the one getting in positions to score, which you could praise him for but it also comes with a responsibility. He had a couple of good chances, one of which he had time to bring down and find the corner but he snatched at a volley instead (from memory).

      He was also next in line to Bong in attributing blame for their goal for a lazy header in the build-up. He lost it again late on which could have cost us.

      Stephens barely put a foot wrong (unless you count the non-penalty) and got an assist. Perhaps 2 points difference is a fairer analysis but he annoyed me in the buildup to their goal so perhaps not completely rational in my scores.

      Ryan: 8 - kept us in the game, but other than that had nothing to do.

      Bong: 6 - useful going forward but really struggled against Shaquiri in the first half and his failure to press him gave him the space for the goal.
      Dunk: 8 - won everything and crucial tackle after the Pen
      Duffy: 7 - As good as Dunk, just without the tackle.
      Schelotto: 7 - always full of running but just lacking the end product.

      Izquierdo: 8 - gaining in confidence and a second STUNNER in 2 games.
      Propper: 7 - found space well but wasteful with 2 good chances to score in the 2nd half.
      Stephens: 8 - seemed to be at the heart of all our good moves, lovely link up play with Iz for the goal.
      March: 5 - anonymous today. Should have been subbed earlier. Doesn't seem to have the confidence to take his man on anymore.

      Groß: 7 - could have done better with an effort in the 2nd half but was a solid outlet. Not his best game for us but I still have lots of man love for the guy.
      Murray: 7 - did all he could against two big CBs. We looked worse after he went off.

      Ulloa: 5 - feeding off scraps, didn't impose himself though.
      Kayal: 5 - anonymous. Not sure the advanced role suits him
      Knockaert: 6 - extra point for THAT header. Kept us in it.

      Ryan 7 - great penalty save
      Schelotto - 6
      Duffy - 7
      Dunk - 9
      Bong - 5 not his day, goal down to him standing off
      Izquierdo - 8
      Stephens - 9.5 - ?best ever performance for us
      Propper - 6
      March - 7 - some good closing down defensively.
      Gross - 7
      Murray - 6

      Ulloa - 6
      Kayal - 6
      Knockaert - wouldn't normally give a rating, due to the time on the pitch, but 7 for the goal line clearance!

      Do you really feel March warrants the same score of 7 as Duffy. Duffy far better performance than March today.
