Ratings show Pennington, Chalobah and Harrison as our best three performers and I’d agree with that. I’d also agree with comments about the referee. I saw him in the Preston game when he awarded us a penalty and sent off their keeper but he simply got so many decision wrong, sadly, mostly against us.
I think he was probably too short to get a proper view of most incidents but he really shouldn’t be reffing at this level. Ann’s league refs

Can't remember the last time we had striker who could score the type of goal Freddie Sears did. His second goal especially was one any striker would have been proud of. Didn't think his strike partner played well at all, given his very high standard this year. The mask surely cannot help. So Freddie was undoubtedly MoM. My view on the others is as follows:
Bart: Worrying performance, especially before Sunday - Mick will need to consider who plays in theis key position
Luke: Not his best performance but certainly not his worst either
Christophe: As so often our best defender
Tommy: Again not the greatest performance but he kept going
Tyrone: Towering header and some great forward runs mixed with some suspect defending. He seems to lose concentration. I'd play him left midfield.
Skusey: Looked good before his premature departure
BRUUUUU: Delighted to see him score, some excellent play but some poor passes - bit of a mixture
Ando: Fully justified his return and was our best player before the break but faded after ht
Parr: A bit mixed but one great run in the first half and a superb saving tackle near the end, before our crucial fourth
Tabb: I'm not his greatest fan but he put in a good shift and did the dirty work which MM is such a fan of
Chaplow: Promising, if brief, introduction.
Birmingham had a wealth of attacking talent: Donaldson was excellent first half and well supported by Thomas. Then they had Gray, Zigic and finally Lloyd Dyer to come on, the latter having destroyed us on a number of occasions when at Leicester. Their defence however, was poor and they have conceded 8 goals in four days. So perhaps it is not surprising that our forward play was better as a whole than that of the defenders.
Overall an entertaining game for the neutral, which I am certainly not - so very nervous until Bru's goal. Fingers crossed for Sunday.

I was at the game and very much enjoyed it. I didn't hear the Blackburn fans and am sorry you experienced some thuggish behaviour. Still surprises me. I've been to Blackburn a number of times in the past and always found their fans to be docile.
This hooligan thing for them does seem to be a recent and unwelcome development.

Undoubtedly an encouraging and energetic start.
In my opinion there were two MoMs. I agree that Hyam was one but Edwards was his equal. He is underrated by most commentators on this site and if only we had a fit right back who woud enable Carlos to play further forward. He remains a class act, in spite of his relatively advanced years.
I didn't hear any 'Kean Out' chants from Blackburn fans, which was not a bad thing but it is worth recording that PJ got more commitment and desire out of his young squad that Kean did out of his more expensive charges.
Did Blackburn fans really cause trouble in Holland - seems very unlikely given their rather docile performance at PR today and in previous years.
Dare we look forward to Watford.......?
