Thought Nouble looked a real handful when he came on, would like to see him with McGoldrick i think.

That was a good result (if a slightly scrappy match in the sleet/snow). Kept the League leaders very quiet, prevented them from dominating and, really, had the better chances ourselves (tho unfortunately failed to convert - but only just, the post is probably still rattling from N'Daw's strike). Nouble's last-minute effort was also agonisingly close - he looked very lively and seemed a good prospect in his short time on the pitch. N'Daw ran the game from the middle. McGoldrick and Mclean did ok, Chopra and Murphy put in good stints. The back-line was solid and effective. All round quite pleased with what I saw.
My only criticism might be that there were times we were passing the ball around Cardiff's area and no-one seemed to want to take responsibility for having a shot. Each time, the ball was eventually lost. Shoot and there's a chance of a goal, don't and there isn't.
We by no means parked the bus, but instead put in a strong attacking performance which all of matched the leading team in the Championship.
And I thought Bellamy was going to go pop at one point, he was so enraged!

Didn't see it as a scrappy game it just lacked that one moment of brilliance that could have won it for either side
Loach....a more solid game and after discovering that I had sat behind your dad was pleased not to have had a pop at you!!!
Creswell.. solid performance
Chambers...continues to improve which makes his celebrations at the end of a game mean so much more
Smith...won everything chucked at him
Orr.....some shaky moments but end of day harried and did the job required
Martin......still the same for me...so much promise and endeavour needs to work on final ball/result
N'Daw.......simply wow......controlled the mid field got stuck in and showed that as his confidence is growing can dribble a bit....just needs to take that split second longer when passing the ball out to make sure it always gets to a town shirt....my MOM
Hyam......bit shaky but clearly man marking his player....a good shift
Edwards.....under performed today as always passed the ball backwards....be braver so many times momentum lost because ball was played back
McLean....shortest man on the pitch yet won so many headers....work rate excellent
Mcgoldrick.....think we are going to see much more out of him and got to be honest post the bit we saw at villa was a little disappointed with him today but works hard all over the pitch
Murphy/chopra....much the same as each other but what a difference it makes to be able to see decent subs coming on
Nouble.....enough to be pleased by this signing...made a run like a freight train at one of the Cardiff players....good job he connected with the ball not the man otherwise he would have flattened him....desperately disappointed that h e didn't convert last minute opportunity
All in all a great point and always nice to see town a bit more locally
Big plea to the part time away supporters....team is starting to deserve so many more following away from home....villa support showed the potential....MM and TC are taking this team somewhere.....don't be disappointed when you miss out...COYB
