You’re right in that biamou clearly is considered 4th choice but I just don’t get how. He finished the season ahead of Baka, I don’t know what happened in the off season that suddenly saw him relegated in statusBiamou 7- brilliant header, as long as he’s happy to be 4th choice then I’d keep him around.
You’ve given Thompson 8 but Dabo 7 ? Can’t say I agree with that one mate Eccles defo worthy of a 9 alsoBilson - 6: Did the little he had to do well, seemed comfortable with the ball. Was slow for pens but will let him off on his pro debut.
Rose - 5: Cost the game. Silly foul for the pen and poor pen in the shootout. Arguably the least stand out of the three. Not match fit yet.
Drysdale - 8: Looked excellent bringing the ball out with a couple of great runs forward. Assured in defence, his best game since the Rangers match, looked a capable back up.
Thompson - 8: Really surprised me. Looked very good on the ball and assured in defence. Thought he looked a decent prospect today, hope he carries on in the vein.
Dabo - 7: Excellent first 60 mins. Tired towards the end but my god we’ve missed him on the right.
Sheaf- 7: Looked classy, two good feet and some lovely passes.
Eccles - 8: Another surprise, has got excellent players in the squad in his position to learn from and looked as good as Sheaf at times. I’ve said he should go out on loan but I was wrong. He’s developing nicely.
Mason - 6: Some outstanding crosses in including the assist, good defensively but just lacks that forward mindset Dabo and Giles have to push us forward. A couple of times you wanted him to beat his man and get down the line and he checked back instead.
Bapaga - 7: Still raw but an exciting talent. Needs to watch how easy he is to wind up and bulk out and he’ll be some player.
Baka - 7: Should have scored, some great link play and he was everywhere at times.
Walker - 5: Poor. Touch isn’t there yet, running isn’t there yet. He’ll get better but if I were Godden I wouldn’t be worried right now.
Max - 6: He scored. Not sure he did much else. Passing was poor a few times slowing down the attack and lack of pace let him down a couple of times. Looked a level below the rest of the team technically.
Burroughs - N/A
Saw lots of positives tonight. Good young players, first teamers looking close to ready, a consistent brand of football throughout where players know their jobs.
All about normal levels innit? Thompson has an 8 for Thompson, it was the best I’ve seen him play for us. Dabo had a decent game for Dabo, but we know there’ll be more to come.You’ve given Thompson 8 but Dabo 7 ? Can’t say I agree with that one mate Eccles defo worthy of a 9 also
Thompson had a couple of dodgy moments in the last 10-15. Overall, he handled himself well in an unfavored role on the left of the 3 centre backs.All about normal levels innit?
