I liked that performance though. Everyone looked relaxed and it was good to see those that haven’t been playing, we scored 4 and dominated, just need to do that against the big boys a bit more…

Quite a tough one to call, I fancy us nicking it with the low block stuff and low possession. However, Chavski have a little more going forward that Citeh have presently and look fresher from the new signings.

They might be a more difficult attack to contain over 90 mins and Toby being out won’t help with that. However, confidence looks good and the players are on board with the Jose approach. I don’t see a clear favourite for this one.

Maybe the lower ranked teams should compete in the group stage and teams like us come in at the same time as those dropping out of the CL.Just the group winners go through.

PEH is a very hard working and disciplined defensive midfielder who does exactly what Jose needs to help implement his tactics better.

He suits Jose down to the ground, outside of that I wouldn’t say he’s a particularly remarkable player. A very strong character and 100% committed.

I was wondering if I was alone in thinking that.To me he looks wary of any physical contactI’m not sure we will see what he was capable of in the past.Good for shirt sales,but there’s more sentiment than actually improving the team there in my opinion.I hope I am wrong.

Looks fit but seems to have lost his speed of thought a bit as well as his legs. Free kicks nothing special I’m not sure what stands out apart from the fear factor currently,certainly not tracking back. I also totally wanted him and hope I’m wrong ,even if he makes the difference the last 10 games I’m not bothered but I certainly noticed he didn’t come on last week defo a luxury player maybe.

I actually thought we were playing the ball round very well and working hard…yes, it lacked quality in areas and the oppo are terrible but considering they haven’t played many full games thats much better than the last outing…Doherty has been disappointing but N’DOM looks the business…

Another Beeb stat Tanguy Ndombele had the most touches (63), completed the most passes in the opponent’s half (41) and won the most tackles (four) in that first half.

A lot of the attackers are doing alright but they’re not reading each other’s games too well – one player dummies, the other is static etc

Guess to be expected as they’re the reserves and don’t play together week in week out
