  1. Yes, good point. He is a very good player but sometimes holds on to the ball too long. In recent games we have been very good in pressing him and getting hr turnover. It might be more difficult this year - although we have been focussing on full backs for the press, so maybe the triggers will still be there.
  2. As others have said, it is so difficult to pick a MoM with the way the team is playing.

Armstrong looked ill/unfit at times Redmond not MoM but put a shift in - final ball wasn’t great but at least he tried to link up play and pass forwards. Vesty was superb JWP &
