I wouldn't take any notice of Kentish's praise for Trotter, we all know how he 'blows with the wind' these days! ;-)

But did Kaja actually contribute anything to the game. He did ok, but didn't really have much of an impact. I still maintain this for a lot of our young players, they don't look out of place, but they don't affect the game. When you compare him to the senior players on the pitch last night, you can see how much more impact they have. That said, he's useful back-up and certainly not a week link. Maybe Trotter has finally found his feet, second half on Sat was better and last night a lot better. He's got all the attributes to be good, he just needs to play good!

Still buzzing from last night.
Agree with Kentish and Laurence. Trotter's value is his ability to hold up play and keep possession in the middle. If he keeps putting shifts in like last night he'll make a valuable squad player.

Great team performance last night, reminded me of how we went about Brentford (and were unlucky to lose). Surprised at some of the stick for Soares and Trotter. Both had decent games, put in a shift and did the dirty work. Some decent link-up play from Trotter too. Instrumental amongst others (esp Will and Darius) in nullifying a dangerous side. Neither are Hollywood players nor top quality, but both did what they were there to do, and we got the result.

Claiming one of them should have been dropped for Abdou / Ant is purely speculative - who's to say that would have been more effective?
Trotter reminds me of Sanchez. No-one saw his worth until he was missing due to injury.

I rate Trotter. He's an intelligent player (more so than Soares) who reads the game very well. Taken some time to settle in, but's he become more confident.

Not a show pony at all
Love the way we all think differently on here. I thought Kaja played well and tracked and closed down really well. Pace of game got too much by 70th minute and rightly subbed. As much as people knock Soares and Trotter they done a job and didn't let Rotherham have a sniff in midfield and were solid. Think Trotter would be so much better if he sped up a bit but he did put his body in the way on more then one time. Would have been happy with 5 points from our 3 games including the Plymouth game but we have 6 already!! Be great to get full marks and 9 points. Loved the energy of last nights game!

Actually, it wasn't proper diamond, was it, because we had Abdou and Soares both deep then Robinson on for Forrester so it was all shuffled around, but noticeable that Trotter was asked to keep much closer to Taylor than Forrester had been when he was the central attacking midfielder.

Winchester - that's really insightful. I saw Kaka getting stick for last night, but maybe Ardley knows what he's doing after all?

Trotter may be the ultimate show pony. He starts looking good when we are leading, but hasn't been seen when we've needed him in the early part of the season. Give me Abdou, or even Soares anytime.

DW: the switch to a diamond midfield with Trotter in the attacking midfield role and Forrester wide right arguably played a role in both our final two goals. The run that Trotter made to create space for Taylor to shoot for the second was fantastic.

I spoke to Mick McCarthy at half time. He was disappointed that Moore was getting no service from the Rotherham flanks - nothing went to him all match. McCarthy put it down to our wide players cutting off the service. Moore has scored ten this season, so Kaja, Fuller, Francomb and Barcham (along with the rest of midfield) did what was asked of them very well.

Trotter made some intelligent moves upfield (not enough) and had some good touches. Trotter and Abdou/Hartigan on Saturday
Yes, Surrey Bob, Soares showed great vision to see Andy Barcham on his own completely unmarked in the centre circle :-p

Ardley is full of it
Sharif - He does indeed the problem is the lack of someone on the end of it.

Do we score from crosses? Very un-Wimbledon like
We thinking Deji or CK on the left if Francomb is 'rested'? Personally would prefer CK as naturally left-footed and can put in a decent cross

Maybe Francomb doesn't need micro-managing. It is useful to have some players like that.

".... showed good vision to find Andy Barcham in a pocket of space ..." - is Ardley morphing into Hoddle?
18th Oct 2017 10:17:07 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
No! Hoddle would have said a "little pocket"
Sharif- sorry, you've either got it, or you haven't. What 'shape' did we adopt for our goals last night? Competence and talent overcame a better team last night.

Great performance. Shame it has taken until mid-October. Nice to see that the manager finally dropped his obstinacy and did as many fans have suggested by playing Taylor as a striker.

You may not change Ivor but anyone (ANYONE) can be removed
Donworn - to be fair having watched the highlights - Trotter does bomb forward. Get the impression he's one of these enabler players we all love to hate.
