Think he's still 16 or so, hopefully some good coaching could produce a decent player for the future

On reflection thinking about the very one sided match I just hope we eliminate some of the traits some individual players and the team seem to be carrying on - there is no doubt we need to be far more clinical infront of goal. This was a very one sided match where we totally dominated but the scoreline would suggest a very narrow win. Defensively we were hardly troubled but despite carving out numerous openings we only managed to score a mere 2 goals.

Rutherford shows fantastic energy and chases down everything that moves but yet again is let down by the final ball - he got himself in a great position but his shooting is poor, either weak off target or both.

Last season I would get in the Glyndwr Stand early and watch the team warm up including the pre match shoot in - generally again when faced with just a goalkeeper as many can testify we fail to hit the target - if they can't do it do they need to practice more - could make all the difference to results after all goals make a defeat into a draw and a draw into a victory. Our approach play was excellent in the first half but let down frequently by not putting away the final ball.

Leo Smith had a good game on the right flank first half - last season he was arguably the pick of the team during pre season but hardly got a look in with Keates - somehow I think Ricketts will be different. After going 0 - 2 up in the first 20 minutes big Mike was withdrawn as half time approached to be replaced by Rutherford who moved to the right flank with Leo switching to the left.

Of concern is Holroyd who seemed to go off the boil when Quigley arrived - I thought today he was very quiet and not in the game.

Worthy of note was the venue - it must be unique. There can't be anywhere else where planes the size of Beluga's are taking off virtually right next to the pitch with the match in progress.

Next year sees the introduction of the Beluga XL which apparently dwarfs the current Beluga - that will be a sight to see taking off during a match !

Mike upfront gave us lots to be optimistic about - obviously first game and poor opposition but looked very handy. Young very impressive also.

Agree about 'Big Mike' - he looks a handful and has a strong influence but was only given 30 minutes or so being a week behind the rest of the squad. Young looked the player we have been missing in the middle of the park - things suddenly looking a lot better - what a difference a week makes with pieces of the jigsaw starting to slot in place.

Pre match music whilst watching the Beluga's take off in the roasting summer sun brought back some memories with :

The New Seekers 'You wont find another fool like me'

Jon & Vangelis 'I'll find my way home'

And this classic number one which will be remembered by older supporters amongst us and which reigned top of the hit parade through the summer of 1956 - 'Young Love' by Sonny James..................tremendous, it's what makes occasions like today's game that more memorable.

What was interesting yesterday was Arkil Wright wasn’t used until the second period with the youth, I thought he didn’t look to happy and with Summerfield to come in probably in place
Of Carrington wonder were he would fit in the starting line up, suppose next few weeks
we will have a clearer picture.

Airbus were shocking, we will have much firmer tests this pre season.
Wright and/or Summerfield would deal with that.

I wasn't there but the formation choice seems on the nose with the players we have (and presumably one out and out forward and a wide man still to come in?).

I think that it's game intelligence and lack of experience that lets him down. It was notable during the Lex game how much Ricketts had to talk to him to make sure he was in the right position. I would expect Summerfield to be playing that role as its essential that the 2 deeper midfielders are disciplined and know what their roles are.

Was good to see big Jussi in the dugout barking out instructions to the young lads second half. Didn't spot Barrow though.

Graham Barrow was on the pitch with Ricketts pre match and during the match someone else said he was in the raised gantry near the home dug out above the rest of us ground dwelling peasants !
