Finally managed to attend a football match in Kuwait today, Al Qadsia v Al Jahra. Qadsia are the team owned by the Nottm Forest guy. Small crowd as people over here far more bothered about Arsenal, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Great atmosphere tjough, one guy with a megaphone and a few fellas with drums leading the noise. Was superb. Standard probably Conference/Conference North.
Missing Dale loads but this did give me a small fix.
Just watched the highlights on Dale player - some observations (I wasn't at the game):
1) Everyone said Thompson had an awful game but he actually seemed to be involved in the majority of our good bits. 2) Donnelly's superb running meant he had three very good chances. 3) Donnelly's finishing meant he missed them all. 4) Lovely footwork and pass from Grimes for our equaliser. 5) Edwards lucky not to be sent off for dragging O'Toole down. 6) O'Toole lucky not to be sent off for throttling Edwards 7) Watch the lack of effort from one of our midfielders to get back and defend when they got the third. Happy to pass his runner on and happy to stand with hands on hips on the edge of the area when the goal went in.
Maybe I'm being harsh on the last one but the reason we were so poor defensively under Coleman was that the midfield never seemed to chase back and help the defence, seemed to happen again. The sooner we get rid of the players who are brilliant in their own heads and replace them with players who'll put the work in, the better.
