I couldn't tell who was at fault for the goals today - apart from perhaps Gerken for the first, simply because it's just gone straight over his head - but I thought Smith was absolutely brilliant today.
He look assured with pretty much every touch, he made good decisions, good passes, got rid but only when he needed to. In the past Smith has panicked and unnecessarily put the ball into touch or sent it straight the opposition keeper, but I thought every decision he had to make today he made well. And as usual he won the majority of his headers.
On another note, other players that stood out were Chambers - he was a man on a mission, sprinting to get the ball back for every free kick, trying to get on the end of everything, and Sears was basically our main man and at the heart of a lot of good things we did.
Also, Murphy really seems to have his mojo back, I would guess the Wolves defence don't fancy it against him.
I did feel Pitman wasn't quite 'on it' today, but he is a clever player and will have better games.
Shame we kept on gifting it back to them to equalise, and also that we never really made enough chances to win the game ourselves. I suppose both teams will be fairly close to each other come the end of the season.
He doesn't really celebrate does he? He's always more interested in turning round and taking the congrats from teammates, which I like in a way. No silly knee slides or anything. Even when hitting a hat trick he's so calm.
I guess you just expect a certain cockyness from strikers. But thankfully Murph is one of a kind.
Skuse and Douglas in a two are poor, but when you put Bru in there you've suddenly got a half decent mix of players. And when you've got four good strikers like we do, it makes sense to play three of them if you can, even if at times you have to play one wide.
I can see Pitman being our top scorer this year, depending on how much he plays. He's a clever player in a similar way to McGoldrick, but the difference is he is a goalscorer.
Apart from AMN, Bishop would be an able replacement for him. I think Parr could be an improvement on Knudsen, as much as Parr looks uncomfortable every time the ball comes near him - he made one shocking clearance yesterday kicking the ball straight out of play.
Still need a right back, but hey ho.
Can't believe that's the first time the three strikers have started together!
Is bringing any other centre halves (PM? Clarke? Yorwerth?) likely to improve things defensively? I'd say no, personally I'd look at replacing the full backs, certainly Chambers, but that should have been done two years ago. Knudsen is new but having a tough time of it.
More than anything it would just be nice for the full backs to get forward and take some pressure off the defence in general.
