Anyway, on the game, we were... not great. Mostly quite pedestrian, and we really struggled to take proper control of a game against a team who finished 14th in the league below last season (for what that's worth). We played some better football towards the end with Dsane and DGB on the pitch but even then I'm not sure we really tested their keeper (bar one shot we thought he turned over - the ref disagreed).

Obviously it's just pre-season and I think there are a couple of players who weren't involved that should be in two weeks time, and new players will keep turning up no doubt, but it wasn't hugely encouraging.

We're probably in a better state on the pitch than we were this time last year - there's a more obvious plan/style and it seems like it should be better to watch (although that’s quite a low bar if you remember how we mostly played for the first six or seven months of last season) but personally I think we should probably be striving for more than just 'slightly better than the team that would have gone down last season had it not been for a late roll of the dice and a few good loans'.

I don't imagine anyone is really expecting any different but definitely sense it will be a slog of a season (this is not a criticism of the manager)
