    Did anybody else notice how upset he was during the last post and the minutes silence ? I think he still wasn't quite ready to play. Must be so tough and he was quite clearly moved by the events pre match.

      Indoors watching and looked liked he started to cry. Definitely effected him last night and it showed.

      Yes, he wasn't his usual self on the pitch. Still clearly feeling it, poor fella. Hopefully will be back to his best soon.

      At the end too. He was very emotional and Beram who was sat close to us went on to the pitch at the end and gave him a big hug. Really nice touch by Beram

      Poor guy, I felt for him last night. Clearly not quite ready but also desperate to play I would have thought. In the heat of the game I suggested him and Skalak swapping wings for the duration to give him a run at Hutton, but on reflection I'm not sure anything would have helped.

      They swapped over in both halves, but it didn't yield any more success.

      It wasn't his night in many ways, unfortunately. It was the sort of game where we needed a spark of his magic to get us going, but it never happened. It seemed like he was just trying too hard, bless him.

      With this first match behind him, also the cruel coinciding with Remembrance, hopefully he'll be able to get back to himself a week from now.

      I wasn't any use to man nor beast for a few months after my dad died. I hope AK can throw himself into his football but I think we need to give him some allowances as he's still a young man that's lost his dad. He seems to play with such emotion that it's bound to affect his game. Hopefully the club will be there with support and we as fans need to give him some time.

      I noticed them do it once and thought it was a good idea at the time. They matched us out wide all night to be honest. We probably should have gone through the middle more, the Sidwell / Murray / Baldock / Murray move for the goal was the best of the game by either side and came mainly through the spine.

      It didn't help that he was up against Amavi, who was excellent I thought. I doubt he'll play against a better leftback this season.

      I hoped, at the end of the first half, that Chris Hughton would put his arms around him and tell him not to try so hard, that it was alright and everyone loves him. Maybe, in hindsight, it would have been better if Anthony came on as an impact sub. Who knows? Whatever, AK is still a genius and has every right to be adored.
