Malcolm was encouraged by what he saw but feels there is too much to do in the remainong 14 games to ward off the threat of relegation.

Vito 6 safe

Jones 5 quiet

JOS 7 leader

Kone 8 beast

Pva 7 sharp

Kirchhoff 9

Catts 6 patchy

Lens 6 frustrating

Borini 6 workaholic

M’Vila 7 improved

Defoe 7 unfortunate


Khazri 7 prospect

Johnson 5 impactless

N’doye 5 insufficient

And finally …

Big Sam 8 tactician

  1. If anyone’s interested my ignition keeps cutting out. The garage said I could have a courtesy car but when they went to fetch it the same thing happened to that one. Both cars less than a year old. Hopefully fixed tomorrow.
