A very good performance and most impressive. My friend and I predicted MoM despite the heroics of Stubbs. I suspect the weakness of the Stevenage midfield may have helped, but his balance and slickness, and especially that effortless turn, reminded of the long forgotten Chris Holloway. As with CH, the class is there, it just needs to translate into effectiveness, and consistency.

I thought Rowe looked good in the last two games. Poise and balance coupled with a bit of pace and energy. A "high quality problem" for MT in terms of team selection for Newport.

To be fair, I did say he'd probably have a blinder against Stevenage. And in my defence, my post was written before we knew how long Kyle Taylor was going to be out for and I didn't see too many people queueing up to tell my I was wrong before yesterday.
However, all credit to Callum. A week ago he was struggling to get in the Bath side and probably worrying about getting a contract anywhere; now he's made the most of his unexpected opportunity and probably already done enough to earn a contract for next season.
To be clear, my post was very much tongue in cheek. Like you, I was among those who wasn't sure what the future held for Callum before Saturday. My point was not that your initial post was unwarranted but that, after Saturday, Callum made it very obvious he has the potential to prosper at SJP.

No worries, Exeweb would be very boring if no-one ever expressed an opinion or made a prediction and I'm sure I've made a few clangers over the years - at one point, for example, I seem to remember raving about how good I thought Noah Smerdon was going to be.

Interesting that Chrisene, who was typically a central midfielder for us went to Villa and become a left back has completely swapped roles and club with Rowe, the left back who joins us and becomes a CM.

Young players move position all the time.

I notice from the highlights that the first goal came from a corner which was from Key's shot, Key being fed after Rowe won the ball in midfield. I notice that his distribution seemed to be pretty good and he was composed on the ball.
