Kenlock 15:51 - Oct 10 with 2097 viewscleggo

For all the rubbish that's been said on here in the past week about a very able deputy we have at LB who, by the way, is one of our own he's barely put at foot wrong in that first half. Great to see him prove the doubters wrong

Even more impressive considering he's completely nullified Blackpools star man of the season in CJ Hamilton

He's played well today, but the critisism of him leading up to this game was valid. If he can make how he's played so far today close to his regular standard, it would be win win for everyone.

Not sure you can counter the evidence of 50+ matches with 45 minutes against Blackpool.

He's done well thus far though.

It appears he's playing well. Hopefully, he can find that consistency with his performance through playing regularly, he's not a youngster anymore

Can be great but then can equally be bad.

If he can put a run of consistent games together there is a player in there.

Think he is a confidence player so a few good early moments in a game he is usually fine.

personally think much of the criticism has been way over the top. He's never going to be the best left back in the world, that's why he's a second choice in L1.

Having said that, I think he could easily be a starter and a solid player for a middle of the league side in this division and we're lucky to have him as deputy. It's a little too easy to criticise someone who's stepping in here and there for not being fully at it

He's had a good half, pleased to see it. Edwards and Dozzer have helped provide cover when needed and he's worked well alongside Wilson too. Solid performance, which is all he needs to put in. Did well for the second goal too. Hopefully he keeps it up.

Assuming we go on to win this game, and he doesn't make any errors/get injured, I guess that means he plays next weekend too, even if Ward is fit, so he's got a great opportunity to keep Ward out of the side for now.

He's never that bad when he starts, is no more than average generally but that is enough most of the time

He's a throwback to the 70s and 80s where a reseve player would hang around for 7 or 8 seasons and play 100 games over that time as and when needed.

So, is Kenlock ok to play next week after you hammered him with your assessment during the week?

We'll see. If Ward is fully fit then he comes back in. Look, my view on Kenlock is based on watching him many times over the years. I don't think he's good enough but I'm happy he's had a decent first half today. It's not like I want him to play badly.

No agree with the decision about Ward, he's the first choice LB but Kenlock would benefit from a good run of games. He comes in, then goes out of the side and then comes back in a few months later and we all expect him to perform to a high standard. I hope he continues to play well, it would be good if he gives PL a tough decision to make when Ward is fit for selection.

Indeed. I think many people put too much stock on being right over seeing the standard of a player change and improve. That said, Kenlock has given himself a confidence booster today and it's his and his alone to lose.

A lot of his issue is confidence and he got better as the game has gone on.

But he has to stop that turn inside and immediately back that he tends to do far too often. Ward in comparison has his head up and looking forward, with the safe pass becoming the last option rather than the first one.

Hope he pushes on further second half and gets into the attacking positions we know he can take from a few years ago.

Decent enough today and should be good enough cover until Ward is back. Think having Edwards in front of him helps a lot, don’t think it’s a coincidence their goal came in the period Judge and Edwards switched sides.

Not sure what’s happened to Huws though. Pretty sloppy in possession and played more than a couple of dodgy passes, hopefully Nolan back sooner rather than later.

The difference Ward makes is his experience and organising others around him. I don't think there is any doubt Ward returns once fit but Kenlock's performance today shows there is no need to rush Ward back or find another player to cover.

Another thing to note is that rustiness. Both Huws and Jackson showed that today. Neither got to the pace of the game and that is thanks to not playing. It was Lambert's thinking in rotating last season and the price we will pay for not doing so (rightly in my view) is that players that do have to come in may need a game or two to get up to speed.

Yep, Judge was ball-watching and left the Blackpool player the space to get a free cross in.

Thought Judge was a bit of a passenger today. I know he looks busy but for me there’s not enough return that we might as well have Bennetts, Lankester or Jackson out wide and causing defenders a little bit more panic.

Perfectly adequate back up LB to step in for the odd game or two. If Ward was out longer term it would be an issue but we aren't going to get a better back up LB within the salary cap.

We should collectively treat him better.

Not sure Judge has any place in the side. Useful bench option for Bishop but that's his role now imo. Doesn't offer enough in the wide forward role.

To give him his due, he worked hard in there (as they all did) and didn't shirk a challenge either. Didn't offer much on the ball but if he's happy to come in there and do the required job off it then it's a good start.

I have said that he is good enough at this level. Understand some of the criticism, but some will knock for knockings sake. Out of his depth at Championship level, but should be fine in L1.

Working hard is a bare minimum expectation though in fairness. As you said, everyone worked hard today. When you're playing in a front three you need to carry threat as well and Judge just doesn't offer that, sadly. Decent bench option for Bishop for me but shouldn't be starting games and certainly not in a front three.

Think that's right - need more mobility,pace and threat on the flanks. Judge better as the furthermost forward of the middle 3

Agreed on that re front three, certainly in the longer term. Bennetts showed a few flashes that he'll be a good option (as I'm certain he will be, in fact) and Lankester/Sears offer more incision than Judge. Edwards has given Lambert an interesting problem today because it's hard to see how Freddie gets back in on that flank, even though his intelligence and burgeoning relationship with Ward are welcome.
