Pete Sixsmith wasn’t there but Andy Nichol was so, since we have Andy’s consent to reproduce his contributions to the Blackcats list, here were his immediate post-match thoughts …
Sitting in reception at hotel prior to hitting the Johan Albrecht Brauhaus so a few early impressions …
nice touches, good in the air. Looks a decent footballer. A bit
lightweight but when able to come off the defender brought others into play
effectively. In terms of starting at Anfield, well ahead of….
– who is maybe two years away in my opinion. Some nice touches but
only 18 and it showed.
– really good delivery from corners. We looked threatening every
time but need to work at this more and more.
– too many, much of a muchness central midfielders. Cattermole
was a liability and should have been sent off. Get rid.
* Desperately need to buy some FLAIR. Oh, and Sessegnon was good (and got our equaliser in the 1-1) and did what
nobody else had done – drag defenders out of their comfort zones.
Off to the Brauhaus.
