Well, I was not expecting that result TBH.
Watching Hull Hernandez caused us trouble pretty much all night until he as subbed, and also the Diame goal did not go down too well due to some rubbish defending at the back - cheaply given away and a lack of concentration which worries me that we playing the better clubs we are going to get spanked.
What a bloody hit by Valencia ! Goal of the Month for September anyone?
If this is what he can do week in, week out, then we may have a special player here rather than rely on the aerial height of AC.
I am looking forward to seeing if Valencia can capitalise on this every week as he looks a good player and the board have taken a massive £12m punt on him.
Sahko also put in a decent shift.
I thought Downing had a decent game again, but in the midfield, we lack a little bit of hustle. Perhaps the return of Nolan may shore things up, but Song is just as good as any and maybe he needs to start first.
Adrian still doing well in goal, despite the Hollywood saves every now and again, but at the back is where I worry. I still don' t think it is tight enough - may be a little raw, but I am hoping it will come good against lesser sides.
And although we got the draw via an own goal (and luck), we did look to batter Hull and keep possession, which means that there seems to be a change in the style of play under Sam.
I can't complain with a point away from home on a Monday night and it was at the end a rather good match to watch. But we really need to start taking three points than one and methinks the next few games will shape how the squad will play for the rest of the season.
Scoucers next on Sky at 17h30 on Sat - at home.........interesting.
