Zog and Taylor dropped. Fair enough the N'Zogbia thing like - Duff's the better player. Bit of a toss-up between Taylor and Bramble though IMO.

I'm looking for performance rather than result here.

 

That's pretty much our first choice team so I want to seen organisation and cohesion at the back, invention and effort in the center of the park and finally movement and foresight up front.

 

 

I expect to be disappointed :lol:

Probably. Might do us good to get a bit of a chasing though from a fitness perspective, which is all that really matters here.

I want to see Luque and Shola put on a good display and get in the goals, it seems we'll be needing them both to be in top form this season.

Booted up the old Digibox and the FTV card is still working, chuffed! Off to watch it on Five now. I'm sure you all needed to know that. :lol:

The Nordy: "He's been over and back to Holland, I hope that's in search of a striker".

 

Is he suggesting the Roedster likes a bit of a smoke or the prossies a bit too much? :lol:

Same here, hopefully we will put in a good performance and hopefully Luque will score - at best, it will mean he's found a bit of form and at worst, one or two Spanish clubs may become interested.

Have to say credit to both teams for tryign to play some attractive passing football to feet and no dirty or cynical tackles at all.

 

Plus Shola continues his impressive scoring record under Roeder!

I think Villareal and PSV will have been good warm up games as they are clearly better than the majority of the prem an will get us up to speed better than a few games against shite opposition.

Although we haven't been brilliant, I do hope that Emre's display hasn't gone unnoticed amongst some people who seem to think he's a luxury.
