Lads go onto barnsley website, sign up free account, and watch the game. Jonathan Bond just had a stinker, ive watched him 2 games so far, and doesnt command his box at all

4-5-1 formation seems very negative.

2-0 Down 11 minutes gone.

I know friendlies are about fitness but its a pretty strong side out

Starting line-up: Bond, Nyom, Dawson, Bartley, Gibbs, Phillips, Livermore, Morrison, Brunt, Rodriguez, Robson-Kanu

Albion are lining up in a 4-5-1 formation - with Brunt, Morrison and Livermore in the middle of the park, Rodriguez out left, Phillips wide right and Robson-Kanu leading the attack. Morrison is getting forward to support HRK at every opportunity.

We desperately need something in the middle of the park and Rodriguez more central. Friendly or not I hope this is not what is coming our way this season.

Brunt is a wide player, Rodriguez more a central player, square pegs in round holes don't work

I would be more worried about the defending lads, we have 2 of the best headers of a ball in dawson and bartley in the division, bloke gets a free header for 2-0

Might only be a friendly but a lot of our players look awful. Brunt looks completely washed-up. Can't get up and down the pitch to keep up with play. Gibbs, still can't defend the back post to save his life. A bit concerning. As I type we somehow don't make it 2-1. Great chance after error by Barnsley GK. BTW you can watch the whole game for free on the Barnsley website.

Paul Suart text on game

“Robson-Kanu, through on goal, has his effort saved.

Rodriguez and Morrison unable to convert the rebounds.

Now it’s Phillips testing Walton in goal.

Pretty good game to be fair.

Not one for defences, mind.”

“The very definition of end-to-end.

Bartley might have scored from an Albion corner.

Barnsley broke at speed, with Bradshaw firing over from Potts’ set.”

2-1 a the break, half-time ratings:

Keeper - 2 (at fault for first goal and poor kicking, looks like a child)
Nyom - 6 (decent)
Dawson - 6 (getting stuck in)
Bartley - 6 (solid enough)
Gibbs - 2 (a liability with and without the ball, shocking)
Brunt - 3 (extremely poor, passenger lost in the middle)
Livermore - 4 (disturbing how bad his passing has been)
Phillips - 5 (not in the game much, working hard)
J-Rod - 5 (out of position, looks off the pace)
Morrison - 6 (only midfielder with a bit of nous)
Kanu - 6 (working hard, no support, got a goal and linked okay)

“Robson-Kanu’s header on the stroke of half-time gets Albion back in it.

Excellent game to be fair. Attacks definitely on top. Could easily be 4-3.”

Hopefully Barnes gets a run out second half along with a few others.
