The scoreline certainly flattered us.

I didn't care about this tournament at all, but a few things concerned me. Our squad is still desperately weak. I think we played a few players that can be nowhere near starting in the PL: Hause, El Ghazi, Taylor, Lansbury. They're just not good enough. I was also very concerned with how often Jack had to come back, as our deepest player to pick up the ball. We can't keep doing that, we need him up the pitch.

Onwards and upwards, I'm chuffed Watkins got a goal on his debut, delighted for Davis and Grealish to get on the scoresheet, and going through is a good chance to get more game time for some fringe players. Lots of work to do though, it was far from convincing.

My thoughts.

We didn't look like we bothered. Looked like a preseason match.

AEG, Hause and Taylor just aren't good enough. Move them on. Replace.

Lansbury we might struggle to get rid, but I can't see any point to him playing further matches. 

Grealish and Watkins looked like they had an understanding. 

Excellent curved/timed run by Davis and lovely finish. 

Ramsey looked good.

Decent win. Nice to see Davis getting a goal. 

Surely if Davis is coming on ahead of Samatta he won't be around too much longer.

Was just another pre season friendly really. So glad Davis scored though, might help him kick on a bit now he's finally got one after so long

Luiz was a massive calming presence when he came on. Our midfield looked wayyyyy more composed. Was quite visible as well. Took about 15 seconds and everyone moved around differently.

Great to get the win and some match fitness, quite exciting when you think what was on the bench/left out and still to be signed, upgrades all over the pitch.

Gambled with that trying to look at as many players as poss. Nearly backfired but good we gave some minutes to the second string and very good Davis broke the duck. Hard to read too much into that other than Grealish can look incredible at times.

The 90 minutes will do them good, we didn't look great, at times we looked poor, but we were comfortable enough.

Just got back in so managed to catch from 85 minute mark onwards... so from my perspective we looked tremendous! :lol:

Was that a tidy Keinan Davis finish as well?  My word.  What manner of sorcery is this?

They wanted it, we wanted to play a preseason game.

Half of those players shouldn’t be in a first XI even if a cup game

Loved Watkins positioning and nice goal.  Grealish was glorious .

Not a fan of Davis but that was a lovely taken goal, glad for the lad.
