Plenty of promise shown there, no doubt about it, it wasn't perfect for us to get overly excited, certainly overplaying at the back got us in to trouble a few times, but with clough wanting us to play that way its bound to happen especially at the moment with the less comfortable defenders, but i won't complain to much if we keep trying to pass the ball. The first real test will come infront of the home crowd against Cardiff knwing the derby fans as i do, sadly sideways and backwards passes and the odd mistakes will get jumped on by the numerous morons in the ground, hopefully our players can be strong and keep to their games.
The front 4 we're a joy to watch, if they can keep it up we can go far, but more tactically aware teams may look to stifle that attack, thats when the real test will come especially at home.
Also a mention for Bailey, this lad wasn't always in the crewe side last year, derby fans questioned the signing, crewe fans sais he wasn't good enough, lots of talk of just making up the money for Brayford (who also looked good) with his sell on clause causing crewe problems, but i for one thought he was fantastic, a few times he picked up loose balls or won the the ball around the edge of our area and made a pass out to feet or for people to run onto leaving our attacker favourite to win the ball. Sounds simple but when you've been watching useless cloggers lump it aimlessly for years it's a delight.
Cwyka looked good as well, seemed to get missed out alot with the praise, perhaps no-one can pronounce his name lol but numerous times ran at, and went passed people, as did green who was like a new signing, and commons we know what he can do.
Lastly Roberts, i thought started slightly shaky, but willing to pass the ball from the back and got stronger as the game went on. The defence is still the main concern, we need Barker fit and leading the line, and leacock will get better with games under his belt, leaving anderson as cover, so it aint to bad for this level.
