Went last night and was able to take the little ones (6 & 3) to their first games. Great game and a nice atmosphere (nobody complaining or using abusive language to our own players is always a good start). I think it's a brilliant gesture from the club making these games free to attend and view on RamsTV. Thanks Mel, you're a top man.
On the game it was great to see George back. He wasn't 100% but even so he bossed the midfield with TME. To put that into context Rodwell who has been transferred twice for in excess of 10 million quid played in their midfield was rendered into virtual anonymity. I'd have no problem seeing that pairing in certain Championship games this season.
I also remain convinced Mason Bennett has a part to play this season. I don't think he's been properly fit over the last couple of years but he is now and I think we can reap the benefits. He just seems capable of doing things that say Weimann wouldn't be able to do (and I'm not anti-Weimann by any stretch), for instance the headed flick on to himself in the second half.
I also thought Alex Cover at centre back was a class above and I look forward to seeing more of him and Luke Thomas ran amok when he came on. Both have bright futures.
Last honourable mention to Fozzy who bossed it on the left, but thought everyone had at least a decent game.
Finally no idea why the Jakobsen goal was disallowed.
