Shelvey is quality. Can't tackle but I think he could be world class in a few years. He is so similar to Gerrard, hopefully Brendan can cut that Hollywood passing crap out of him and make him a real player.
Lots of players had good games, one or two really dragged the game down. Enrique is shocking, really think we need to give Robinson a run in the first team to see what he's about, and then if needed buy a left back in January. Carra was pretty poor in the second half as well.
It's been pretty humdrum. Indeed, at one point I utterly forgot that the background noise was a competitive sporting event.
Bigirimana has done well and Elliot made a few decent saves, especially early.
Shola has been dangerous but unable to finish. The gamebypassed Vuckic again.
Interesting substitutions by Pardew. Sammy Ameobi on for Vuckic, Ferguson for Amaltifano, Marveaux (huffed at being subbed at Goodison) the final sub. No playing time for Abeid, despite his prolific form for the reserves.
Two thousand posts...The line to sing my praises should be orderly, you lucky wretches.
I look forward to receiving my commemorative gift.
