    I will be the first to admit I havent been impressed by OBrien so far. That was a good run and finish though. How good to see a number 9 making that sort of run between centre halves. Canny ball through as well. All good.

    AOB is definitely our best current striker based on this

    O'Brien with an overhead kick - straight to the keeper

    I’ve thought he’s looked decent a few times but been poor recently. Been roundly booted on here and Twitter for saying it!

    Good finish that, taking the shot early b4 keeper can set himself. Bit harsh on Maguire by commentator. Thought it ws a rough challenge.

    AoB has mobility. that alone makes him better than the usual subjects, but Dan Neil is the difference here so far

    O'Brien is pulling their CHs all over, Embleton looks good, Neil is having a good game and Maguire dripping in to some nice areas as well.

    L1 defenders hate mobility, ingenuity and pace ...

    ... exactly where we need to improve.

    If anything his running around creates the space for McGeady, Gooch and Diamond to drive in to. Currently defenses can just set up against us and its hard to break down.
