OK so, thoughts on the game.
Our preseason tactic of cultivating the fittest deadwood in the league backfired. Our first team players were not fit enough. We dominated first half, then our legs went in the second. We need to sort that out.
All the new boys look good, Henderson was the least impressive but he's young, he'll get there. Flanagan isn't quite ready yet, hopefully Kelly and Johnson will be back soon, and hopefully Lucas, Meireles, Maxi and Gerrard return soon too. Suarez picked up where he left off last season, but shouldn't have taken the pen. Carroll improved as the game went on, but he needs to start making more of an impact, or the media will predictably start getting on his back, but he will come good and his goal should have stayed.
Overall, not great, but it's only the first game and there's plenty to be possitive about.
