No £12 is too steep!!!My take on last night after time to reflect.Firstly Taunton friendly club the ground needs a bit of work if they are to get promoted again again for sure but they would have made a tidy sum from the 900 odd in the ground. We could learn some tips on catering with a rather nice coffee truck and Burrito Bus (very reasonable prices) serving the masses. I thought £12 slightly on the steep side for a psf given that is their league prices but maybe im being a tight wad
Onto the game itself the first half team was a mixed bag. Sparksy I felt delivered a number of telling crosses that needed a goalscorer to tuck away as MJ and the U18 lad never threatened. Biggest plusses for me I thought Harry had his most composed game to date (aside from the goal which Matt alluded to himself) and Pondy who looked and played like someone older than his 18 years won everything in the air this time and barring one misplaced pass looked like he has the making of a young Rio Ferdinand. The other big plus for me was Pedro Borges who again looked as if he has been around the first team much longer than he has with a composed display in the midfield alongside Archie who was steady. Pedro kept the passing simple keeping possession with several neat touches, good ball control and has a good engine. He was more impressive than Harry but Harry gets the benefit of the doubt after such a long lay off. Kitey will need a full pre season and a bit before he is in contention I fancy? On the downside I thought Josh Key was wasteful on several occasions but perhaps was missing his old mucker Sweens behind him? Harrison King did really well in his time on the pitch.
Second half team I expected to put Taunton to the sword but had little fluidity and clearly missed Nombe big time. A front two of Coley and Jervani didnt work and didnt play to the strengths of either. Nelson was a mixed bag with some good surging runs and other misplaced passes but he is still a work in progress. Amir Daniels apart from having the wrong boots making him slip regularly looks a player who has real potential. Standout player for me was Caprice who I fear will miss out on a starting berth at Lincoln as we will need to put Key in the shop window. At the back Grounds is an excellent player to have on the pitch never getting flustered. Chiek powerful and dominant in the air but his distribution was either too ponderous wasting runs from Caprice by holding onto the ball too long or far too often going long when a simple ball into feet was required. Thw other standout was Tim who as well as his two goals looked the player he is silky. Finally MJ something is amiss I know he isnt a forward but he looked quite down at times. I wonder if Matt is changing the captaincy this season affecting him.
