Thought an excellent and professional performance today. 5 minutes in I thought Wigan were all about getting stuck in. Hard tackles and never shy about sticking a boot in and I thought a lot of cards would be coming. I think it could have been a straight red for their player not a second yellow?

Pablo was kept quiet. Douglas and Harrison can be frustrating with some great build up play but no end product. That is about all I will be negative about.

Bamford worked hard again and his movement off the ball has improved so much. He really works the channels to create space. The dig about the tap in I actually was sat watching saying to a mate "I think he tried to miss that! " Then laughed, but it is about a striker getting in the right positions. Bambam keeps getting in those positions to score and did.

Foreshaw I also thought was excellent. Phillips did as he does and showed composure. And the keeper never gave me a moment today thinking I need an inhaler or was having a heart attack so all is good.

Bring on Pontus and his team next. All the best. ALAW!

A bit unfair on both Harrison and Douglas I thought. A lot of people saw mOm between Harrison and Foreshaw, think I’d agree. Harrison is taking people on more, getting a lot of the ball, so not everything coming off, but looking much more dangerous and threatening this year. Douglas getting better as well.

I think the amount of action down that side of the pitch is also taking some of the workload and expectation of Hernandez as well.

Spot on Spanish. Malta, makes a good point about Harrison but as you say, if you play as direct as he does, sometimes things don't come off and ultimately possession is wasted. Much sooner see him play like this and take risks than to play backwards.

As my sister in law says "you can play around with it all you like Mick, but you won't get anywhere without a bit of penetration. "

I think Douglas and Harrison are starting to work well together, room for improvement on the final ball in, but definitely getting better.

i didn't see the game but saw comments about harrision and douglas cutting in rather than crossing which was frustrating

we all know douglas can cross but i don't think this is MB's way and we can't blame a player for doing as told. I don't think we will see a lot of crosses like with corners as it is not our strenght or game plan

i personally like douglas and think like with bambam some can be a bit harsh.

Not going to play a lot of crosses into box as team is a bit on short side. Shows at set pieces and corners for and against. Think its Bubs way to play it to feet. When we play teams like Millwall who are happy to defend in depth that will cause problems. Quite a few games last season when there were about fifteen players in our oppositions penalty area which does not give you much room to play it to feet. Think we have players capable of taking that shot from 15-20 yards and hope to see more of those.
By the way BW reckon Matt Smith will get quite a few for Wall this season, they found themselves a good target man at last.

Matt Smith is one of the best headers of the ball in the game, almost as good as Crouchy. He will be a great asset for Milwall and hopefully we'll be able to contain him when we play them.

Think there was a mixture between cutting in and crossing of variable quality but the first goal came from a pretty good Dallas cross I think, pinpoint to Foreshaw and Bam Bam picked up the rebound.

18 Aug 2019 14:15:38
always liked smith at leeds and think he was better than stats showed

know the wall fans love him and he is doing really well. just hope he don't score past us.

What i meant Spanish was not a lot connecting with their head, both goals ended up as tap ins because no one got a clean head on anything. Crosses come in but set pieces and corners will be a lottery if high balls are just swung in. Good to get the ball in the danger area and i just think what Edmo could do with all those crosses. Hope Eddie is god with his head. Mind you Forshaw managed to get on end of a few.

Smith may haunt us in the same way Morrison often did. Always rated him too, and was surprised he was allowed to leave at the time. (Smith, that is! )

I think Smith was another pocket liner for Master Bates wasn't he?
