Why would anyone expect basically the same team to be suddenly better than they were last year? Eze of course showed some real class and I was impressed with Kakay who, after looking nervous early on, got forward well and grew in confidence.

The real question is that although we all (or mostly) think Scowen, Luongo & Freeman did well last season as the heart of our midfield, actually overall we were poor then and continued to be poor today. As the engine room of the team they promise more than they deliver. Perhaps Maclaren can get them to dominate games, in which case, with Eze playing in the 'hole' the future could look good. But at the very best the jury's out.

Three positives: defence were unlucky - surely not a penalty, and maybe offside for the first goal, but borderline at best, Kakay and Eze offer glimpses of a bright future and Leistner reminded me of Steve Palmer. Even his Mum wouldn't say Palmer was the best centre half we've had, but he was the right man for that time - dogged and determined and raised the level of players around him. Can I hope Leistner will do the same?

Oh well...a long, tough season ahead of us.
