    Let's not go crazy, the trialists look fine, but not anything special

    From what I can see through the choppy feed, pajoy is dishing some weirdly timed passes to tamba bay players.

    I'd like to see Pontius up higher as he needs to be the one shooting on goal. We can't have our striker playing with his back to the goal and no one in front of him. DeRo looks good though I am a bit surprised that TB is playing their second team and most of their starters are on the bench. That makes our control of play less remarkable.

    Lets see how the second half goes.

    I thought Porter did well as LW, running up and down the sideline. He appears to have speed, which is a good thing. He also put a couple of decent balls in to the box, but which came of nothing.

    Nane looked decent to me as a DM, but didn't impress me with his passes. They were either too soft, too hard, too long, too short, or too something.

    I'm happy to see Woolard back as LB. I hope he can stay healthy. DeRo had a couple of nice plays, and a wicked shot on goal. Good to see him back, too.

    nah, the only times ive been able to make him out on this feed were two passed straight to TB players. If he's doing more than that, then god speed.

    That, plus he dribbled into trouble more than once.. I wouldn't read too much into it but perhaps it's a bit of a message from Olsen that just because you did well last season doesn't mean you're given cart blanche (sp?) on the wing..

    Who, DeRo? Yeah, he had a couple of giveaways early on, but he was fouled pretty hard, and I don't think he took it as a compliment. He got up from that and made a couple of nice passes, and the blistering shot on goal. Unfortunately, it was straight at the GK.

    Obviously it's easy to pick on Pajoy but he's been decent enough. His one chance on goal he created himself and almost scored from a tough angle - good save by the TB keeper.

    Pretty obvious this announcer (Callum Williams - who does SKC games) isn't too familiar with Pontius as he asks the question of his color man if "it's a possibility to see Pontius at left midfield"

    Well certainly Ben isn't going to call DeLeon out - total political answer from Ben..

    Nothing to see, move it along...

    Korb has had a couple of good balls into the box. He was rewarded with a Pajoy goal!?
