One point is at least better than none.... Fulham next.
Green 6 - If he had been a bit luckier he could have saved the first and left the goalline for the second to fight together with Upson. But the goals was not his fault in any way, just not an astonishing good today.
Neill 4 - Sorry to say: Worst player on the field. Jonas is not easy to deal with, but our capatin came wrong in most situations. Was lucky that his disastrous own goal didn't count.
Collins 6 - Slipped at their first goal, when Owen scored, and had some doubtful minutes after that. But grew during the game and made a couple of important blocks. Had to try to save Neills ass a couple of times, with different results. So, none of his better games, but more than decent.
Upson 7 - Beautiful block on Gutierrez late on. Can't blame him for Carrol's goal. He had two guys on his own and took the wrong one out. Still: Want more.
Ilunga 8 - Impressive: Very good defensive display, nice goin forward as well. Calm and cool. Set up our second goal. My man of the match (in our team).
Valon Behrami 5.5 - Fought as hard as ever, but wasted to many balls. Gave away a couple of stupid freekicks, and did not manage to help Neill a lot with Jonas.
Mark Noble 7 - He really wants our team to win games, and you could see that today. Gave away to many balls, missed a great opportunity (free with Given) but was involved in a lot of good sequences as well.
Scott Parker 7.5 - Important impact. Set up Bellamy for our first goal. Terrific in the middle of the park.
Jack Collison 6 - Drifted in and out of the game. His impact may not have been great, but quite solid. A favourite that may have to do better to hold his place.
Carlton Cole 7.5 - Used his strength superbly and scored a beautiful goal for the fourth time in a row! One of our most important players nowadays. Have proved all his backbiters what he can. Those who still don't appreciate him do not know what they are talking about.
Bellamy 7.5 - This man can run! Good goal taken, his energy and his anger is essential for our play nowadays. Please stay!
Subs: Neither Boa Morte, Mullins or Di Michele had any real impact when they all came on late.
