Lonergan-7 . .One nervy moment, but did ok with what he had to, distribution a bit better to.
Ayling-8 . . Back to his best, defended solidly and got forward when he could.
Berardi-3 . . Just stupid, really stupid, he should know better and no excuse, not a position we are exactly blessed with options and he really let us down.
Cooper-7 . . solid, handled the threat well and dragged Berardi away like a good captain should.
Penners-7 . .Same as Cooper, coming in for Pontus must be nerve wracking, and he performed well.
Vieira-9.5 . . Brilliant, tenacious, disciplined, all over the pitch, wonderful all round showing.
Phillips8.5. . Credit to him, created chances, got forward, worked hard, not a fan but today you proved me wrong.
O'Kane-7 . .Did ok, having Ronnie there to do the donkey work certainly helped him.
Alioski-8 . .getting back to his early season form, tried to make things happen, also showed his worth defensively on numerous occasions and crucial in the 2nd goal.
Saiz-9 . . .His ball retention is fantastic, a little genius and seems to be getting better and better, bit of luck for his goals but deserved.
Lasogga-9.25 . .Brilliant today, thought he would struggle with Flint and co, but he bossed them, strong when he needed to be, lovely link up play, some nice skills to keep the ball and beat a man on occasion which didnt know he could do, best performance so far, looked a class above.
Finally recognized we needed a 3 man midfield, dropped Hernandez away, which many have called for, the Jansson decision though strange has merit, Pontus said himself "i have been s**t", so TC dropped a player who has been in poor form, nothing strange in that, brave from TC, criticized by many (me included) but it was a brave choice and worked out.
