    ilkleyram got a reaction from Dordogne-Ram in v Scunthorpe (A) Carabao Cup - Match Thread   
    Just back after negotiating roadworks.
    Bielik will have been talked about but for a three quarter fit debut, even against a lower league side, that was about as assured as you get. Big, mobile, skillful on the ball and with a strong tackle as well as a good range of passing. If he can repeat that at a higher level then we have a proper player on our hands. Just lacked a goal.
    Well done to the scouting team who have picked him and Clarke and ditto to all the young players who played today. They all did some good things; not one of them let the Academy down or themselves. A night to remember for Lee Buchanan. Interesting to hear Cocu on about him afterwards and even more interesting to see how better he might be in a years time.
    And well done to Cocu too. He makes changes during the game that have an impact - moved Mason's position and Paterson's and Shinnie's in the first half and we and they immediately looked better; and he's not afraid to make early substitutions - Evans for Bird at halftime and we were on the front foot and never really looked back.
    Lots to work on but this is not a bad start to the season.

    To be fair a championship manager and championship players produced a pretty good performance at Old Trafford last season

    The same Unicef that was wrapped up in several sex scandals last year involving people they should have been protecting?
    There are very few sponsors of any kind that everyone would support, I suspect.

    We'll never know. We'll get glimpses but the rest will be kept to himself, quite rightly.
    What did strike me yesterday was the difference between his interview with the UK media with Phillip and the one to one with @OwenB87 and RamsTV. In the latter he was much more relaxed and more articulate and better. Could be the interviewer was better; might be that he's much more guarded with the national media given the stuff he's had chucked at him over the years (some of his own making, a lot probably fictitious)
