What more ?  One game,  one assist

What more do you lot expect ?

If the rest of the guys got an assist every time they played we would be top of the league

Lets be realistic.  He's clearly not fit for 90 minutes but lets assume he will get better and fitter game by game then we can assess what we've got but if we can get one assist every time he plays, he'll be a big help

I'm in love with a 71 year old man ❤️ There, I said it!

Finally! Nothing to dislike about that whatsoever given what's available. Just hope we win with a good performance now so we don't go back to the same old at the weekend!

Just a FYI, between Vipbox, USAGOALS and Soccer24HD I've found a stream for every match so far of varying quality. The stream last night on Soccer24HD was perfect. 

Cheers - I normally use either USAGOALS or Cricfree. Never heard of the others, but will check them out.

Our big issue is creating chances and putting them away. As well as the assist, there was one time when Britt shot just wide that Watmore had steamed past him on outside and was in a better position, so I think as he gets fitter he will prove to be a big asset.
I think on this one showing he was adding to team just where we needed. With five subs we can afford to include a player who is not going to play the full ninety minutes at moment. For example if we wanted to, we could play him first half and Roberts second half and keep some pressure on the opposition defense through speed and skill on ball. I’d like to see at least  one of them on pitch all the time most matches.

Watmore definitely looked tired but that is to be expected not having played competitively for so long. As ScarBoro said his assist was a huge improvement and that opportunity when Britt swivelled and put it past the far post Watmore was in the perfect position to receive it.

I often bash Britt but I get that as a Striker they should be instinctively greedy and want to score goals but he should have laid it off for Watmore. Having said that Britt probably isn't used to having someone to lay it off to that far forward.

    • I think Tav is what he is, a skilled footballer with good ball control but lacking a footballing brain which has held him back from making the next grade. He is useful and can beat defenders but you never get off your seat watching him and when he lines up to shoot nobody expects him to score indeed it's probably more a case of wondering just how far off target it's going to end up. For me the problem is supporters having unrealistic expectations from him. He's 22 years old, his "development" is behind him, at best he might hone what he has but I would be amazed if he suddenly became a world beater. He has reached his level, with maturity he may refine some flaws but his decision making is the weakest part of his game and if your head isn't telling you what you should do in the next phase of play at 22 then it isn't going to change anytime soon.  In short he is decent at this level, no more no less, with a tendency to believe his own hype which I suspect is one of the main drivers behind such poor decision making.    
    • I have a cousin called Ruaraidh (Rory), Gaelic names get proper wacky!
    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back. 
    • It’s not necessarily criticism (the way I see him), it’s more frustration. He has everything to be one of the best players in the league. He just needs to improve his end product. Personally think he should be getting double figures for goals and assists every season with relative ease with the ability he has. It’s great that he’s a threat and getting in shooting positions, but unless he actually improves his end product it’s not really helping the team. Just think he could really reach that next level with a bit of composure. Saying that, if he did improve his composure, he’d be a premier league player - quite easily.
