A young Mark Noble would be just what we need. Other than him I still think we should have signed Ajeti in the last window. He hasn't had much chance to do anything in his brief cameos and he was dropped in at the deep end today. Quick and strong, good with his head and both feet, only 22. A masterc...

Re: Lanzini

It was Fredericks who went in on Taylor. He pulled back and didn't go in fully, which could have been a leg breaker, but he put enough into it to stop Taylors run and put him on the ground. A one for the team professional foul the same as Westies.

Lanzini was just unlucky with his landing.
