Oxford United

1-0: Tuesday, 24th August

(Replaced Sears, 78 mins) Actually did ok, I thought. Won a free kick just outside the box; good link up play.

Bolton Wanderers

1-3: Saturday, 21st August

(Replaced Dyer, 77 mins) Still a few lbs to go Benni. Nice lob that led to the second penalty. Keep working on that treadmill.

Stoke City

0-1: Saturday, 27th March

(Replaced Mido, 84 mins) Had one very good chance that he just failed to convert. Still looking less than 100 per cent.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

1-3: Tuesday, 23rd March

Looked unfit and, bar the odd nice lay-off, pretty ineffectual in the first half. Completely AWOL in the second half until being unceremoniously hauled-off.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

1-3: Tuesday, 23rd March

A home debut to forget. Unfit and well below par.

Arsenal

0-2: Saturday, 20th March

Chelsea

1-4: Saturday, 13th March

Did not play.

Burnley

1-2: Saturday, 6th February

A fair way off the pace, but looked willing. Fluffed his lines after doing the hard work in the easiest chance of the match, then limped off at half time. Not a classic debut. But not quite a Tomas Repka debut either.
