Thor's goal is a lesson for anyone in the opponents area.
He didn't stand back to see if the ball would get through to him, he went to meet the ball, getting free of his marker, who was actually a yard in front of him.
A goal that should be shown to the strikers and forward midfield players, not forgetting our defenders, time and time again.
Overall a very pleasing game. Now all that's needed is to keep it going. Please don't go back to the previous, even when we lose a game.


Hogan played a part aswell letting the ball run through to Thor, who probably gave him a shout.


Melon, it looked to me like Hogan had over-run the ball. I'm pretty sure it went behind him.

Yes Hogan missed it and Barney nipped in front of his man to tap home

Having watched the highlights, I don't think Hogan either dummies or runs past it. I think where the ball is crossed makes his run, if anything, just take the defender away from a central occupancy. I don't believe it was ever intended for him (if directed as hoped!).

We won comfortably with fringe players . Bruce has got the team selection spot on for this .

Throws up some interesting questions.

Adomah is playing superbly, the best since he joined us. Does he or Elmo get the shout? Think I'd go for Albert.

Elphick looked pretty composed, in spite of not playing much. With Baker gone do we really want to sell him? Is Samba any better for us, especially as he's only here for the year?

Hogan's making his mark at last. Davis gives us something different, something we could do with. What does Bruce do? Play both? Please not Gabby.

Didn't notice him on the stream, but some have said McCormack looks a lot fitter than last year. Might be a mistake to sell him to a rival. Probably more useful than Snodgrass.

So after that refreshing display, we are in the draw for the next round of the League Cup [aka caribou cup or whatever] which will take place at 0415hrs [UK time] this morning in China. What a load of bollocks, even more so if one of our former managerial ex blue nose greats has a hand in the balls.

Brilliant JF thank you, not had a chance to see those again. Great quality pictures, obviously not of dodgy origins.

Players making runs. Players closing down and actually tackling. What a transformation.

At last, the stats are the way they should be.
Over 50% possession.
Half of the shots on target.
Half of the on target shots counting as goals.
Keep those three stats the same and top six is a certainty.
