    I thought Keogh played well and covered up many other players errors late in the game.

    Much better partnered with Davies. He (Davies) went forward to attack the ball leaving Keogh to mop up to great effect.

    We defended well tonight I thought getting players behind the ball and stifling many attacks.

    Will be interesting how we go about beating Wolves

    I thought that most players did ok without standing out. I'm therefore going to go for Vydra, because he did more than anybody else to make us an attacking threat, despite being on the pitch for less minutes than most others.

    Huddlestone.

    Apologies to all and sundry, but his first half performance was absolutely outstanding.

    He didn't fade after the break, but sat a little deeper as we pushed on. Altough less involved offensively, his corners were a notch better than Butterfield's, and his game management is a class above anything else we have had since Igor.

    I have no idea why either he or Davies isn't wearing the armband, unless Pearson somehow allowed it to be written into RK's contract.

    BTW, Keogh wasn't bad...by his standards.

    Lets hope Vydra gets a start instead of Weimann.

    JR created our goal, and nailed their full back more than once. Justified his start.

    Carson for me. The whole squad was under whelming but he made a couple key saves that kept him from picking the ball out of the back of the net. W/out his saves Sunderland score at least one more if not two.

    A shout out to the woodwork, did a great job as well making a key save!

    seriously? You think that he played better than Carson? You rated his clearing header went stright to their boy standing on the edge of penno area? - the one when he just missed.

    Carson for the save and playing well throughout.

    As a few of us have said through pre season, Keogh, with or without the armband, may well improve due to the calming influence of having Davies alongside him. Last night was a better performance from him. No whirling dervish impressions and no rabbit in the headlights moments. Long may it continue.

    MOTM? Has to be Carson for keeping us in the game.

    FFS, you'd have just loved it , had it been Keogh who gave that ball away that Johnson did in the 2nd half...you'd have been on his back all season...you need to leave Keogh alone, and support him...he was very solid tonight and you need have a chunk of humble pie and admit it!

    I just love it when there are multiple opinions for MOTM. It indicates a team effort that at this stage of the season can only get better the more these players play together.

    I have to side with Carson as my choice though if only for that save but let's not forget he nearly got to that penalty, there would have been very little discussion on who warranted the MOTM crown had the outcome been different.

    I love it when he plays well.  We are ALL Rams,  that's what unites us.

    He did his good stuff well.  Its the consistent poor stuff which is endemic and affects how we defend as a unit that will always drag us down. If GR can get that out of his game then I'll be as delighted as the next man or woman.

    I'm not sure his abdication of responsibility (It's always someone else's fault), and his willingness to say this in the dressing room, whilst never accepting that he, too, makes mistakes, creates the right atmosphere for unity. A captain has to be respected on and off the field by his fellow professionals, and I'm not sure he is.

    GR has more than his footballing brain to sort out if we are to succeed.

    Stocky - Please provide your evidence that this is a fact. Not just what you believe. I assume you have full documentation.

    Surprisingly, I wasn't actually there BR, and equally surprisingly I am not prepared to compromise my source.


    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with a captain "calling out" poor performers in a dressing room situation - that's what I meant by your highlighted bit - and it can have a galvanising effect if those around you respect you and want to run through brick walls for you.

    It can also have the opposite effect if they dont.

    I've gone for Huddlestone. Different class to anyone else on the pitch. His pass to Russell that led directly to our goal was sublime, and his all round contribution was key to our improved performance in the second half.

    Keogh played better than usual and (as I said) didn't play to the crowd / blame a teammate for a change. But from what I saw he wasn't our best player and I don't agree with your assessment of his as 'very solid' or that 'he never put a foot wrong'.

    I'll tell it as I see it. If IMHO he plays well I'll recognise it; if he doesn't I'll say so.

    Carson for me - kept us in the game

    and this pains me to say but if I had a second vote Keogh

    and a third Vydra

    I thought it was a poor advert for chumpionship football - but I haven't really seen much in the last couple of years.

    We need to take chances if we are to be up there (and stop marking space)

    I said as much in my post in this thread. I had said beforehand that Davies might actually have a calming influence on Keogh and, based on this game, he seems to have done just that.

    Vydra looked sharp but might be a week or two away from 90 minutes through his pre season injury making him miss a chunk of training.
