Man of match and own assessment
at 18:48 31 Aug 2019

My two men of the match today
vIncent-young and Downes - both so assured on the ball and intelligent movement and demanding the ball from both. I think Downes just pipped the match ball for me but Vincent- young looks a steal, skilful, attacking, but can actually defend very well and has a good presence about him.

Norwood reminds me of Jon Walters and if we ever chasing a game putting 3 up front with him wide like Walters used to play winning diagonal ball headers is going to be tough to play against as his hold up and battling abilities are second to none.

Jackson lovely goal, assist and overall play with great running off the ball.

Chambers and wolfy both assured, kenlock had a bit of grief but overall ok, if we can get him up to speed and matured a bit more then he does have a nice pass on him.

Skuse was skuse, just everywhere, Rowe great tracking back and a few nice runs.

Judge I still don’t like out wide but had more influence and does vocalise and help others around him so it is lovely to have him around and sooner or later one of his long rangers will go in.

Holy apart from one flap when he came out when didn’t need too had a great game, great reflex saves kept the pressure off us just before half time.
I like who Lambert has brought in but not how they are being played

This is my own opinion of what i see personally but i am some what dissapointed.

The physicality we needed and he addressed and the players with experience we needed has been addressed. What hasn't been addressed is the balance of the side in the middle.

In most games it has been defensive mistakes that have cost us or inability to bully and hold or move the ball up through midfield providing service to our strikers. No goals from central midfield has been a problem since Bullard or Andrews left.

Chalobah and Skuse as a pairing just are not doing it for me, Chalobah in midfield i do not understand currently as we are being swatted away by teams through the middle consistently. We have at long last got a player in Judge who is a proven number 10 who scores goals and could be put in a position we desperately need but then isn't?

Not only this but then instead he is put on the wing in a position he says he is not good at in place of some one who is a natural proven wide player like Edwards or Lankester who have both scored, the latter also looking great in the majority of games i have seen.

Its the managers keeping coming in and finding the need to accommodate players and show horn them into a position at the expense of others. It infuriates me and has been our downfall for far too long.
We need a centrally experienced attacking midfielder, we have got one, please dont put him on the wing. He has already had another team try that and have failed hence he is now here. Put him where he can help him self and help us at the same time and put a winger on the wing.

Good save gerken from free kick that would have crept in. Scrappy goal but they all count..

Confidence will be shot to bits again, not expecting a result against Forest especially with an inform Big man like Grabban but it would be nice to try and sort out some form of structure with players that compete before January.

Again no one can compete with a physical front line. Chambers and Pennington too powder Puff and we keep allowing crosses to come in.

Needs a new approach as it makes no difference if your consistent backline is playing like Guff
Its really so so simple

We have Evans who will not spend money to compete, Mick knew this so purchased hard working, scrappy, physical players to compete which was enough to bring the opposition down to our level.
You can buy a bargain if small, skillful, lower league players and expect them to compete with multi million pound players. It will never work.

We have no physicality in defense since Berra and smith went and also not getting Tilt or re signing carter bickers. Chambers is too small and dominated way too easily. Pillkington too young and not street hardened.

We have no midfield muscle, scrapper or wisened general.

We have no physical presence up front- in fact we have no one upfront.

Physical means was the only way of competing on a budget and we have not one physical player.
