Im normally his biggest critic but I must admit today he was awesome-easily the MOM.
HOWEVER-i feel today was only a one off. We have seen numerous times how poor he is at passing and shooting, he can only beat a man when given space-he has no tricks. Today he needed no tricks due to them only having 10 men, he had that extra space-used his pace and whipped in some cracking crosses.
When a team has 11 men and they are able to press him I'm sure his poor passing and poor decision making will once again be highlighted (lunging after a ball to try and desperately keep it in when it blatantly came off their player(then giving away the throwing)), he is only effective when he has space-he won't often get that much space again as he did today.
Hopefully he'll prove me wrong but im not so sure he will...
Thanks fo that Ed, saved me typing a responce in my Superbock_ed up state. Muirheads problem has been the lack on continuity. Today was the staring lineiup I suggested to my mates after Hartlepool (except for Cadders instead of Cooke).
Ben Muirhead was played on his natural right side yesterday and when given a litle extra space due to the sending off, he exploited it superbly.
He was on top of his game prior to the sending off, and his first time crosses ( of which space doesn't count) were of premiership quality.
When in the second half he was swithched to the left, his level of performance dropped considerably, when switched back to the right it picked up again. Leading to Windass's second goal. It doesn't take a footie expert to see that this lad should be given the right wingers role permanately to terrorise future left back opponents.
Both goals and a few other good chances came from his pin point crosses.
Its nice to be able to report on a good game from Ben, we know he can do it ,lets hope he keeps it up, great performance from ALL the players ,glad we got Edghill, he was good in his first game at Darlo,is that it for Holloway?
