Pretty decent first half!

Took a little while to grow into the game, but we did as the half went on and look good value for the lead - Weimann, Atkinson and King all missing decent half chances before the latter whips in a great cross for an unmarked Martin to head in.

Enjoying the calming experience of James and King in that CM area.

Some real classy touches from Scott too.

Decent debut for Atkinson so far.

Solid start…

COYR.

Good half with a general dominance. It did feel like we're lacking a goalscoring striker, but then a striker scored!

Palmer and Weimann have shown both the good and bad of their play.

Scott has had a very encouraging game so far.

Played more football than the second half of last season put together, and deserve to be ahead. At the moment restricting Blackpool to bugger all.

Cannot fault Palmers commitment, but really not a fan of his sliding tackle which has come to be a trademark. Going to be a card every time he mistimed it.

Have to be happy with that 1st half of the 1st game of the season. Already seeing the positive changes big Nige as made to the midfield. Expect players to be a little rusty. We're not going to be the soft touch as we were last season. KP getting stuck in. Composure from King and James. Need that dynamic, exciting striker that scares defenses. If it needs cashing in on Kalas or Nagy, then so be it. Either way, good to be back.

COYR!

First time i've seen Alex Scott play, great player we have on our hands here

Very composed for such a young lad. Could be our breakout player that saves us some serious $. Feel like if he could get a goal, many more could follow. 🤞

King and James bring so much experience, calm and confidence to the midfield, dominating much of it, its a great holding area that our attacking players can grow confidence from, he is hoping it stays that way.

Don't want to belittle the goal but the marking was Div 1 at best

Agreed, in that half we've been more energetic, managed better closing down and certainly won the midfield battle. Major concerns 1) need to be more clinical COD and AW both should have at least hit the target 2) concentration +++ danger of getting caught on the break or being undone by one long back. 

However, overall a much better team performance and so much more entertaining to watch.

Mainly been in control. O'dowda nearly had a sitter before an excellent challenge that caused Callum's injury. Great ball by Matty James. Such a shame he is injured. So short of wingers now!

Weimann very close chance on his left on a bit of an angle, went for power when just needed to guide it and blasted it over.

King header a very good chance. Maybe should have scored that.

Atkinson very good chance. Should have gone for goal. So close to goal a good contact it might well fly into the back of the net. Think he tried to play it across and didn't get a good contact.

Palmer was only a half chance and struck it well, keeper got down well.

And then Martin goal. We have deserved it. Blackpool have not had a chance yet.

I think Williams on at some point second half for Scott, who has been very good but on the hour maybe make us more solid. Play Williams wide right if we of course are winning and move Weimann up top and bring on Wells. Pace and movement for Blackpool to have to worry about as they search for an equaliser.

Palmer made 3 superb challenges

 

Yes. Right back no longer wants the ball passed to him. 
 

 

The Terry Cooper stuff was very moving. It built a fantastic atmosphere in the ground.
