Rob Hutchison: far away at the time. Still travelling

Hutch is back. If not in person then via a very welcome proxy.

Olivia, Rob Hutchison‘s daughter, texted Colin post-game with a message and his one-word verdicts on our performances today.

First, the message:

One wordies are back! A long way to go to give up 2 points, and have the worst Balti pie I’ve ever had at a football match.

And now, the verdicts:

Ruiter – 7 Focused

Matthews – 6 Adequate

Kone – 7 Dominant

Wilson – 6 Solid

Oviedo – 6 Nutmegtastic

N’Dong – 6 Busy

Cattermole – 6 Grafted

Williams – 8 Mercurial

McManaman – 7 Impressive

Honeyman – 6 Supportive

Vaughan – 7 Faded

 

Rodwell – 4 Brief

Jones – 4 Briefer

Gooch – 4 Briefest

 

Grayson – 5 Substitutions???
