    I am loving the football going forward. It's scintillating to watch at times and the movement is something else. However we need to control games much better- 2-0 up at half time at home should not end 3-2. Game management must improve. Starfelt looks poor so far and I wouldnt be convinced by him. Welsh is not a long term solution but has acquired himself well. Ralston and Taylor still are not good enough. We are much improved though compared to the first game of the season and that is what we need to see. I do think a fit McCarthy gives the defence a bit more protection as well which will be needed. Good to see him get 20 mins. Worried a little about Wed night, a decent side may well find us out.

    Going forward they are great sometimes the ball was played a bit too quick for the forwards the pen Star felt thought he had time the second everyone had switched off but the defensive side is what needs strengthened highlighter will get sorted.

    Maybe some of the Aussies can let us know how Ange's team look defensively when he sorts his team. Are the stats good ?

    What the scoreline today does is gives other teams hope..

    But the Diets were terrified to come forward until very late on. They had no other option as its a cup game.

    We all know, and so does every other teams manager, that we are weak at the back. How many will try to attack and press us

    Got a feeling AZ will in Europe. All teams know we will score against them, we just got too much going forward

    :50: Actually can't believe some of the posts I've seen on here, it was a cup game, we won and are through to the next round. Aye it was two poor goals to concede but ffs we are still a work in progress and its clear as day we are getting there.

    The first half was relentless and some of the best football we have played in a long time. Dropped off a little bit the second half but I never really thought that we would be in too much danger as it felt like we had just stepped it down a gear and could have went back up if and when neeeded. This is why we scored shortly after them scoring. Badly need to sort out our defence.

    Thank *. Purely on we should be having all the luck this season after what we've been put through.

    Genuinely thought we'd get Hibs away and the huns would play Teletubbies FC at home.
