I thought that Branston had probably his poorest game in a yellow shirt (or white, black for that matter). He (IMO) wasn't his dependable best and was prone to a few slips and tonight his lack of pace was exposed. I would still see his name down on the team sheet (perhaps he misses Ellis?).
Some people love to jump on my back when I state that they need to know ALL of the FACTS before passing opinion that can be treated as having any gravitas, but it really is so. there are all sorts of hidden factors that go towards making it a good day or a bad one and we can only see what is on view to the public.
But that's what they are Merse, opinions. If if thought that Branston had a poor game, then that's what it is - I'm not going to know whether he trapped one of his gonads in the car door which may have accounted for his form last night or are you saying that in order for posts to have gravitas we have to be aware of other factors such as whether he is carrying an injury.
I think as long as an opinion is expressed as an opinion then I'm happy (well as happy as I can be) - it's when is followed by personal attacks or when someone labours the point or "Does a Wring" then it loses poster credibility. Some previous poster thought that Branston played well, I didn't, but thats life.
My only point about tactics last night would be, why play Benyon as a the lone striker for periods against big players (thought Charles played very well for the Shots last night and seemed to win everything in the air) and why bring Billy the Fish on in the 89th minute.
Performance marks (based on 5 being average):
Benyon 6 - Prone to a touch of the Connells
Kee - Not on long enough to mark
