Essex, See we all see different things. I thought Hutton/Lennon worked the right ok - but when Lennon was switched left to make way for Johnny Two Saints, he hardly had a kick. Modric I thought started really well (and I thought he was going to grab the game by the scruff of the neck), but then seemed to do a Jenas. Jenas - well, I really thought he'd turned the corner at the end of last season, but...
Gomes made a couple of good saves - but one was definitely because he was out of position - so could have given a second goal away. He flapped at crosses, and that 'juggling' episode was a farce.
Bale - started really well - good in midfield, but it was all but that he could hear the 5 commentators and as soon as they said his dead ball kicks were poor, took a confidence nose dive.
Zokora - I think he tries, but he does seem to lack 'vision' (but having said that, so have the complete midfield since the start of the season). I didn't think he was as bad as the commentators said - but you obviously did.
To me it just seems we have a defence, we have a midfield and we have an attack - its just that they don't always play together. It just doesn't look like a team at times (last night it did for a good proportion of the 1st half) and the ten men at Stoke did for a while. But it has to be 95minutes each game.
