Combined age of 23 years old.
It was men vs boys out there. Nolan and Barton are two quality players with year of premier league experience. They dominated us even though it was 4 vs 5...........embarassing. Welbeck is shite in midfield and pointless. Zenden should have started all day.
Tiote looks a much better buy than Riveros could ever be. He also looks like a classier Cattermole with a lot more skill.
Dont even get me started on the lack of goals from midfield.
Why Bruce didn't strengthen the middle in the summer is beyond me. He knew our midfield didn't score goals but did fuck all to rectify this. He really should have pushed the boat out and got N'Zogbia in.
I posted something similar a couple of months ago and was slated. Fact is we don't score goals from the middle and a couple of more experienced heads in there wouldnt go amiss either.
Sort it out in Jan Bruce
