Not many in the field tonight. Eyoma for me which made it the more curious in my eyes that the big App took him off. Montsma and Bridcutt played OK but both had a tendency to rash tackles which played into Rovers clever game management. Grant was the most creative, but too many crosses were over or under hit from him. The rest were bang average, with two exceptions, Palmer did not do much wrong and was unlucky with the penalty. Tayo bless him, had an absolute mare and for most of the game just could not find a red shirt. He didn't hide though but should have been pulled way before the end. Unusually, not Apps finest tactical master stokes and neither was Remy as the first sub. Archibald did make a difference but too little too late. A very frustrating afternoons viewing.
Interesting how we see the same match differently - I thought TJ had a relatively poor game by his standards, not alone in that but I wasnt entirely surprised by him being subbed. I didnt think Tayo had as poor a game as many have suggested - his passing went into over optimistic mode at times but he hit some gems amongst the misses and made some important tackles and interceptions. But 1st goal came on his side.
Really tough call as for the first time all season they were probably all as unproductive as each other, Eyoma did ok first half. Although for me he gave away a lot of over zealous free kicks, Montsma had the least of the bad days. So I have gone for him.
Fairly obviously Jackson isn't likely to be a candidate this week. But I thought we were reasonably good today and plenty of decent performances.
Bristol took their few chances well.
Steve Thompson keeps highlighting the odd naive bit of play from Montsma (and he's right) but he is a real talent and had another good game today, so gone for him ahead of Bridcutt, Grant, McGrandles and Eyoma.
