Joao TeixeiraTHE warm welcome I received from staff and fellow Live4Liverpool writer Dan Thomas was unfortunately not reciprocated by the gushing winds flowing through Langfield Park on Monday night to accompany my debut ‘press’ visit to a football match.

Dan said it would be freezing and amazingly enough that was an understatement!

Undeterred by this I was able to take in an entertaining match, somewhat spoiled by a seemingly card-happy official and bizarre crowd antics.

Flares and pitch invaders? I also count two Londoners and one Yorkshireman defined as ‘Scouse’ to suit limited chants.

From the game, I’m sure you will be glad to hear a few players caught my eye: here are FIVE to watch out for…

    With one exception these are the same I was impressed with and for the same reasons pretty much. We were actually better when we went down to 10, it’s as if it woke us up, and Jonjo showed excellent hunger and composure to play so well at right back and left back. At times he was the controlling the game from a full back position and this is very hard to do. Was very disappointed in Suso – seemed like he felt he was above it all.

    Although I don’t think he was in our top 5 for this game I understand why you chose Sama. He was rash and didn’t think this was his best game. But I’ve seen plenty of this lad in other games and what I like about him is that not only is he solid defensively, a real athlete, but he’s ussually a calm defender with and without the ball. He can pass out from the back really well too. He has a booming crossfield diagonal pass (like Agger used to do, though Sama’s right footed) which he plays very accurately. Few centre-halves of his age can do that.

      I agree with you there, I don’t think Sama was 1 of our top 5 on the night, I wanted to highlight him especially after Alex Inglethorpes comments.

      I think if I had selected a different number 5 then I would have gone Sterling. I thought he did very well up top on his own when we were down to 10. He gave relief to the defence and have the midfield time to support him. A mature performance from the lad

        As a 5th I’d have gone for Adorjan. He’s normally a no. 10 but was playing in an unfamiliar defensive midfield role. He worked hard to help his centre backs and made a number of good tackles and interceptions. As always his passing was crisp and he always plays with his head up looking for forward passes. Interlinked well with Texeira at times. Perhaps could have done better for the last minute goal when he was ball watching a bit. Felt a bit sorry for him in preseason as he was one of the few that didn’t really impress when he got minutes on the pitch, just looked really nervous. Glad he’s been having such a strong season for U21s. His lack of pace may hold him back in regards 1st team opportunities, but it didn’t stop Sheringham from being a great player.

          That’s a fair point, I thought adorjan got better as the game progressed and really shined in the latter stages when we went to 10. He broke up play and started attacks well, as Alex Inglethorpe said, it is crucial for players nowadays to know how to play several positions
