Have to admit I was very underwhelmed when we signed Hendrick but he looks a very solid signing on a free. As someone else said he is tidy on the ball and gave a nice balance.

Thought all the new lads looked good, Lewis looks full of energy and offers an actual threat going forward unlike Dummet. Similar to when we had Willems it is so good to have a fullback who can bomb on and get crosses and even shots off.

Wilson was superb, looks a complete striker and sniffs out chances. Gets in positions and makes runs that Joelinton just doesnt do. He also can hold the ball up a bit too and seems quite a powerful lad.

ASM looks to be starting the season like he left off, an absolute livewire and they just resorted to hacking him down constantly.

Hopefully give the likes of Fraser, Joelinton, Longstaff etc a run out in the cup, feels unbelievable to have options now and a decent squad of players we can actually rotate.

Only just caught the highlights after being out yesterday.

Wilson is a goal scorer and not afraid to shoot (better version of Gayle). Lewis was very encouraging with his attacking play down the left. Pleasing to see Hendrick do well and actually be present in the box.
Too many time’s last season we’d be attacking with nobody in the box.

All in all, solid start and given we traditionally take about 10 games to get our first win on the board it’s really good to see us start with a win.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?
