    He played midfield regularly in his first season here, that’s when he proved he wasn’t good enough, in my opinion. We only started playing him consistently at RB in December after Laird’s injury. And I’m not disputing that he played for RB before us, I know he did.

    Having a decent progressive coach is a huge help.

    Why we gave sbragia the job in the first place is crazy. We’ve got the right choice now it seems.

    This West Brom side is genuinely terrible.

    Can’t ask for a better game to start the season, I thought West Brom usually had decent academy sides?

    Not nearly enough, and just because he did not hit the ground running in his first season in a new country and new club, does not prove he is any less talented than them.

    I believe they’ve lost a few coaches, and their better players. I know two have gone to Barca and City.

    Everything Garner does, just seems so effortless. It's unreal!:devil:

    Puigmal could eventually take Garner's spot in midfield if and when he gets more involved with the first team. By that time you'd hope at least one of Hoogewerf, Mejbri and Mejia have been promoted to the U23s for the RW.

    Yeah, I am hoping Garner starts getting more chances in the team. I think he is ready to be given some playing time. Get some time in the cup competitions hopefully.

    Cup competitions I think he definitely gets minutes. Europa League as well given he keeps these performances up. With the structure in place now at the club there's no way a player performs like he does and nobody takes notice.

    I don't want to go over the top but he reminds me a lot of Frankie de Jong in his early days at Ajax

    Any chance our youngsters are raising their game motivated by watching their friends make it into the matchday squad? :drool:

    Garner blasting the door to the first team wide open with this performance. Two belters! :eek:

    Is the team set up in a similar way to the first team?

    4231.fullbacks bombing forward.Quick inside forwards,James Garner doing so much better than Matic controlling the midfield from deep and the pressure put on WBA when they didn't have the ball was amazing to watch.

    The keeper was impressive aswell last night, never booted the ball upfield,he always played a short pass so that we played out from the back.

    Garner is such a class act. Hopefully he will get some senior games this season.

    Yes pretty much the same setup as what has been played in pre season 4231.

    Yes, but I'm sure Man Utd U23 this season is showing more promise already than they did last year under Sbragia. Mind you no Greenwood, Gomes and Chong. Exciting times!

    Yeah this season, but we won 0-5 in the penultimate game of last season @ Newcastle and though Sbragia was the Manager he gave Neil Wood all the credit as it was him that had trained the team in the week building up to the game, selected the team and tactics, it was almost certainly what got him the Gig this season.

    Yeah great to see one of our own doing well. Remember watching him as a kid, a precocious talent with a sledgehammer of a left-foot, who knows what he might have achieved if it hadn't been for injuries.

    That first goal....what a strike. His second wasn't bad either.
