    He sounds well cheesed off. I expect the wheat to be sorted from the chaff in the next two games.

    The Good 
    The first half team performed similar to the Notts game. Sloppy play from Hanson, Huddlestone and Jerome kept on breaking down our attacks but the general play would have please Frank. The 433 were close in lines and players just constantly overlapped and dropped in here and there to create options. 
    The Bad
    The second half team certainly didn't get it. They played in strict positions like Rowett would have them. Huge gap between CB's and CF. Huge gap!!! No interchange and it meant they could press Thorne and the defending half of our team while having an accurate map of where our team were. Very predictable. The style was much more forced. Balls down the line, balls lifted over into space on the wings. Basically a team caught in transformation as a defence played passing and the attack played kick and chase.
    The Ugly
    Jamie Hanson very poor, Tom Huddlestone sloppy, Cameron Jerome lost the ball every time. Bradley Johnson is just rubbish. Just like at Notts he sees fit to smash the ball for absolutely no reason. He lifts it off the floor for no reason. Blackman showed no signs of carrying an attack. 
    Other players were a bit poor. Bogle was naive, Thorne was like a tractor etc etc but I don't think any of them set off alarm bells.  Hanson, Jerome, Blackman and Johnson have surely only made Lampard think of the transfer market because of their decision making and lack of technical ability. 
    Over the two games I think if Lampard had to pick a team 
    Carson, Wisdom, Keogh, Pearce, Forsyth, Ledley, Bryson, Butterfield, Thomas, Nugent, Lawrence would be it. 
    That's the players that have been able to move freely within the system and have shown good aggressive passing and composure. 
    But it's a team that I very much doubt he's happy to face Reading with. Bennett and Lowe have to keep fighting. Davies needs to shake off the rust. Huddlestone too needs to just wake up a bit. 
    The rest need to seriously catch up. Way off the pace imo.

    Thought Lowe had a good first half. He dealt with minor threats comfortably and burst into open space if no pass was on. He supported Lawrence all the time. Second half I thought he was caught the wrong side of his man a few times. His passing got lazy (or maybe it's just the players in front stopped interchanging. 
    Bennett... He's fast and strong. I don't think he's very subtle though. He's direct but perhaps too much? Where Luke Thomas will lift his head up and you never quite know what's coming, Bennett puts his head down and goes for it. 
    I dunno. Do you like those types of players?
    I just find them a bit dull. Byline/cross, cut across/shot. Thats it. No real guile to open up a better chance? Strikes me as an impact sub

    Terrific bit of business for us today, Mount and Wilson are astute and somewhat unexpected signings. An exciting insight into how we'll play and the personnel we'll involve.
    I still believe we'll try to move Matej on as he's too valuable not to fit the system. Marriott is the ideal man to lead the line and we're crying out for a proper number nine. The profit could help us bring in Bayliss, Palmer and a young left back on loan (Mitchell / DaSilva?).
    Midfield options of Mount, Bryson, Palmer, Thorne, Huddlestone, Bayliss and Butterfield would be balanced in ability, style and age. Of the players we have disregarded last season, Butterfield has the most potential ability and is more likely to suit Lampard's system over Johnson.

    I just listened to Trumps press conference with Putin whilst out with the dogs.
    I've tried to avoid calling Trump a total moron because he has risen to the highest position in the land, but he's a total moron.
    Up until very recently, I've thought the idea that he's being run by Putin with the pee tape as the Russians collateral as just being a wet dream of the far left (even though I'm on the far left), but now I'm not so sure.
    Almost nobody in his own party believes what he believes. His own National Security Advisor, John Bolton (who's as mad as a very mad hatter) called out Russia and said they were the US's greatest foe.
    Yet Trump insists the EU is the foe.
    In front of a worldwide TV audience he even denied saying Russia was an adversary. 'I said they were a competitor and that's a compliment'. WTF??
    He's such a raging coward, but his base on sites like Breitbart are absolutely loving it.
    The world is upside down.

    Mount doesn't play like Pirlo. He is an attacking/wide midfielder as is Palmer.
