  • Very impressed with Onomah.. O’Hare looks a player in the making too. Think Bree is ready too if Huttons form dips.. Bit disappointed with wide players Adomah and Green.. Would play Onomah on Saturday at Cardiff. In for Bacuna otherwise same team

  • O’Hare showing Grealish how it’s supposed to be done, with hard work and running. Hope he gets more game time, he’s raw talent at the moment but for a debut he didn’t embarrass himself. Bruce called it a makeshift back 4, I call it a disaster waiting to

  • Some positives – Steer and Onomah look good. O’Hare is quality and a natural footballer, the
    type of player we have lacked for many years.
    On the negatives, my concerns continue on our ability to control midfield throughout a game and, more importantly,

  • Onomah was MOM for me, he looks a quality player in the making. Well done to Steer as well, couple of good saves. O’Hare showed some good touches, ran out of steam 2nd half. I’m usually a big fan of Green but he was poor tonight, Hourihane was just awful,

  • Still find it difficult to understand why Nathan Baker was pushed out of our club to make
    room for Samba..

  • FFP and the boy wanted to be a starter DJ. It wasn’t the acquisition of Samba that forced him out, it was JT.

  • Like O Hare a lot. Not so Green who gets on ball a lot. Many like his attitude and intent to get forward – problem is he is mostly ineffective, fails to deliver.

  • Nice to see some of the youngsters bloodied in. Conditions were woeful, so never going to be pretty. Good win.

  • Will be miffed if Onomah and O’hare are not regular starters, even in those conditions looked a far better option,
