Palmer since returning from Swansea


Recommended Posts

He’s a player who you need to give a run of games to top up his fitness and touch. He’s not always effective at closing down and blocking, but he is actually a hard working player. It’s lazy to call him lazy.

It's because he (and Nagy) was far further forward. That gave Bakinson space in behind where, when not under pressure, he can pick a pass. Nagy was our standout doing the legwork, but KP's early ball in behind, absolutely the opposite of all WeeLee coached made the difference tonight.

One of his best games for us tonight but some seriously rose tinted spectacles about his other performances since his return.

Did well v Huddersfield & Preston but really mediocre otherwise.

Palmer has his critics but like Adam Nagy is a player with real quality, full of subtle touches and flair. It doesn't always come off but I suspect he's a confidence player, and needs to know that the boss believes in him and will give him break. I never felt LJ really did that. Let's hope that NP, who has worked with a few flair players in his day, gets the best out of Kasey.

He has started 5 league games and a cup game since coming back from his loan.  We've won 4 of these which is massively out of kilter with our overall performance.  

 

No rose tinted glasses.  Just facts.

Nope, he’s started 6 league games.

His work rate improved a lot. And we know he likes to tackle. 

What I like about him, and something Pato does not have, is that Palmer is so strong. He uses his body to protect the ball. 

He surprisingly gets up and can win headers too. 

I like the more sensible version of Kasey that we saw tonight. Nothing too fancy. 

Thought he faded second half but he put in a great shift. Will be great if he can build on this now.

Has done well since his return. Seemed to be unnecessarily dropped from the 11 for a few games by Holden. Thought he worked hard this evening and put in a shift you’d expect from a player of his value. Hopefully more to come. 

He hasn't done himself any favours since coming in on a permanent contract, but I think a lot of it may have been that Holden didn't rate him, and/or couldn't fit him into a system he preferred (although in hindsight he probably couldn't find a system he preferred himself!!)

Played in the right position, players like Palmer (see also Wells, Fam) can look really good, however they also need a bit of consistency. In one week, out the next doesn't help, but if you aren't performing in the first place you shouldn't be in the side. Catch 22....

He did have a quieter 2nd half, but overall much like the rest of the team played well overall.

Also a mention for Towler who looked very confident at times, and had a good game. Having Kalas next to him may have worked wonders.

Also very nice to see the ball being played through the midfield as well. We do have players that can do stuff with a ball at their feet after all...

7 starts ———4 wins. We are always going to disagree on this one Graham.
