They were under the cosh for most of the time but got a goal on the break. Third clean sheet in a row and Rangel had a very good game. I thought he'd gone a season too far last year, but dropping down a league seems to have bought him more time.
Did anybody have any joy in getting a refund for the Preston game, when the stream was non-existent for most of the first half and lagging at other times? I used the contact facility to leave a message asking for an extra game free as compensation, but didn't receive the courtesy of a reply. I subscribed for a month at £14.99 but because of the 'dark markets' restriction it looks as though I'll be lucky to get one more game. Not really very good value, and very poor customer service.
The quality is not the best, but we'd probably struggle to better either of these teams. Pablo is still as good as anything we have in midfield. In hindsight one wonders why we paid over £15m for Clucas, when we could have re-signed Pablo for peanuts,
On the bench again for Tottenham today, even though Kane is out. Sad to see a player who could have kept us up getting splinters in his bum week after week. Thought he did well against R. Madrid when he did start.
If anybody wants to see how Paloschi is getting on, he's playing in the Inter-SPAL game just being broadcast on BT Sports. He's with SPAL on loan from Atalanta. It is half-time now at 1-0 to Inter, and Alberto has just put an excellent chance to equalize wide.
Kwame's boy has been called up into the Wales training squad. I've said before he is worth monitoring. Exeter City isn't a bad little club, and we should perhaps bring that club into our sphere of influence. A couple of loans (perhaps even consider Grimes) in return for' first dibs' could work.
