Is Cox playing on right midfield? If so, I can't help but think his place should have gone to a youth player

If an offer has been accepted from Forest, why are we risking his fitness and denying a younger prospect such as Roofe or Allan a chance to start?

Sounds like the momentum from his run attacking the ball took him into the first row of the crowd!  ;D Must have been travelling at some pace!

The WM boys are very complimentary about Yacob.  Very impressed with him they are.  Good on the ball and impressive passing.

First half, i didnt think it was great. but a good header by Dawson

second half, i thought much better. we pressed them well, and berahino finished well

El Ghannasy was good

so not a bad peformance

I Went to watch tonight, not a bad performance. El Ghannassy was probably the stand out with a goal and an 2 assists, always looked to take people on but, more surprisingly, tracked back all the time. Berahino made a difference when he came on. He obviously got his goal but was also a good physical threat and constantly looked to stretch them in behind.

Yacob looked ok, still behind the others fitness wide and therefore not as sharp but read the game as well, broke up play a few times. George Thorne also impressed me, that end of season at Portsmouth has really brought him on.

Special mention to James Hurst who had a good game out of position at left back, composed, got forward well and comfortable on both feet. Seems like he's really making a case for himself this pre season. I do wonder if no left back cover is found whether his performances may push him up the pecking order.

Yacob looked like he has all the potential to be our 'Paul Scholes' he definitely looked the type of player to stay in the holding role and ping the ball about well, he tired in the 2nd half but I saw enough of him in the first 45 to think he will do well for us.

El Ghanassy drifted in and out of the game, he would be anonymous for 5-10 mins then spring to life and produce something, encouraged by him and think he will be used as an impact sub more than anything at the mo. Interestingly Clarke was switching him to both wings and he looked comfortable on both sides.

Berahino looked a handful and definitely one we should be loaning out at that level as he will terrorise league 1 defenders.

Wood and Cox played like they were being sold, not arsed and barely got involved.

Hurst played well apart from one slice that could have gone into his own net, but he attacked well on both flanks.

Dawson and Thorne did not look out of place and both will feature more this season I would think.

Overall a decent effort with some people putting their name forward for at least the subs bench.

Thought we were very solid apart from one or two lapses in concentration, a prime example being the poor goal we conceded and the silly penalty given away by Cameron Gayle but a part from that we bossed the football match without being under threat. All were well worked goals to be honest, the second, El Ghanassy just steamed past three or four, perhaps even five players before slotting in Berahino who looked at ease last night. Will be interesting to see how he develops.

Again, Yacob impressed me in the first half. Looks to want the ball and move it forward, George Thorne too, was quite impressive. Simon Cox was ineffective on either wing and I would like to hope its the last time we see him in an Albion shirt. Chris Wood who came off at half time also looked ineffective during the first half.

Reasons to be positive, a good run out for the lads. Sawyers, O'Neill, Hurst, Berahino & Gayle got some match time and thankfully our postion as kings of the Black Country remains untroubled  :)
