Imo, a deserved 1-0 win for Brentford 'B'

We lost 1-0 to the better team from start to finish. Meyer looked average as did McCarthy. Henderson made a few decent saves but his distribution is seriously poor. It looked like a bore draw until we lost our first teamers and then it was inevitable that they scored.

Luka looked okay, was playing some good balls out from the back.

Kirby was the bright spark from the game, he looked much better than the rest of the midfield, Meyer included. He was going back to win the ball on the edge of our box and then trying to carry it up the pitch and push us forward.

Kelly was solid, good to get an hour in his legs.

Jach, he may have the worst first touch I have ever seen. How did we sign someone that bad.

Innis also nowhere near the first team level gave away 2 golden opportunities to them that they fluffed.

Woods looked solid, no fuss and no mistakes but he’s not a RB he is a CB.

Dull game... but to be expected really.

Only really positive is Kirby, who looks class. Potentially a little lightweight for the Prem but definitely has something to offer. I would be looking to integrate him into the first team ASAP. Sub appearances and cup games for example, to see if he can actually cut it at this level. It’s really now or never for him at Palace and with his international experience, there is no reason he shouldn’t be given a chance. With his ability, I feel he could be a long term replacement for McArthur who is nearly 33. Not identical players but very much a box to box midfielder who holds on to the ball well, can find space and a pass. I know he has had stints our on loan and not really blown people away (although I believe he impressed at Blackpool somewhat) but he can definitely play. I think it would take a lot for Roy to give him a chance though unfortunately. A few injuries or something.

I don’t know if I am being over critical but the back up players looked terrible. The defensive players were unable to control the ball and pass it effectively. Midfield was better and although Kirby was ok he did keep running around in circles but clearly there is something to build on . The front players including Meyer were totally ineffective. So for me a poor showing against Brentford B side. At least a couple of first teamers got some minutes in their legs. Illustrated why our 23 ,s season was poor. COYP

Do you have Gold memebrship? If so, then these games are free.

Kirby has looked good in the other games too. Now then Roy you have a young player here who looks class so dont destroy his career by totally ignoring him.
