Well done Ben Wilson today. There have been many doubters and albeit one game, he didn't put a foot wrong. No way was it a penalty in my opinion. He came off his line effectively, took the ball cleanly in the air when needed; distributed the ball quickly through his kicking from hand and throw outs; and pulled off some good reaction saves.

Comes for crosses & has good distribution
Dealt with balls into the box much better than Marosi does (case in point the claim he made on Weds. Marosi doesn't come for that)
Distribution was different. Looked to go long from his hands more than Marosi does, and after an early scare got rid of the ball when needed.

Never a penalty in a million years.

A couple of decent saves and one excellent double save.

A very very positive performance from Ben Wilson.

Been well known he's better with the ball at his feet than Marosi. Proved it today. Keeps the Jersey for me

Great start. Needs to provide consistency over next 6 games or so but the lad should be proud of his debut.
Absolutely, it’s easy to have one good game but to do it every game for the next couple of months is another challenge. Positive start though and certainly coped well with hands and feet.

I liked the way he got the ball moving, looked for players farther up the pitch. Good game.

Did well, thought he might. especially after those two early dodgy looking pass backs. must have spooked him a bit.

If Stockdale had given that performance for us today, there’d be people demanding a statue of him outside the Ricoh.
next to the one grim fisher wants to build of joy ?

Sounded like a top lad and a good laugh with Clive on CWR and seemed really happy. Like I said on another thread let's back him whilst he's in - a good performance today.

I thought he did well with taking the ball from crosses, whereas Marosi likes to punch it Wilson will catch and then try and play.

I dont think he did anything wrong for the pen and a couple of good saves, a shaky bit with a pass back at the start though ha

He did look better with the ball at his feet than Marosi today. And he's definitely better on crosses, which is by far Marosi's weak point.

He does however have a lot of blunders in him, but fair play he was very good today.

That's why he was brought in yeah. Queue video evidence of him fucking up in pre season. Marosi has done the same
I wasn't aware that he was considered superior on the deck and that does surprise me given how comfortable Marosi is.

Yes he played well, but you have to remember Norwich never had a striker playing. In other games he will face tougher opposition/Strikers.
Still i hope he deals with them and makes himself our number one (i don't care who is our best keeper/outfield player by name (i just want the best one/s to play).

Marosi is much more comfortable with it at his feet - sometimes he gets a bit too casual with it. He'll return no doubt as soon as he is fit. The lad had a good game let's hope he maintains it.
