Bates starting again for Hamburg.

0-0 at half time.

They won 1-0 and he played the full 90 minutes. I'd like to see the stat of how many they've won when he was playing.

The Hamburg defence looked pretty poor. A mistake by Bates early on, plus he got done for speed during a couple of counter attacks by Dresden. The goal for Hamburg was brought about by a massive error by the young keeper in the Dresden goal.

In the league this year Hamburg have won 9 of the 14 matches with Bates starting. 3 of the 5 matches they did not win were scoreless draws. They have won 4 from 7 games without him starting. So on paper they are slightly better when he starts.

Interesting stats for Bates tonight, he never made a tackle or won the ball in the air according to who scored .com 

 

Paolo Maldini used to say if he had to make a tackle he’d already made a mistake 👍🏼

And if you can keep a clean sheet without making a tackle, and still be picked every week (as Bates is) then you're doing something right.

Watched Wednesday vs Millwall

Liam Palmer had a decent game for Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday. 6 clean sheets in his last 9 league games, and has looked better going forward. Wasn't embarrassed against Chelsea either, even tho he had Willian to deal with. Got to be on the fringe of the squad now.

Fletch had a wasteful day. Some decent link up play, but missed some chances he should really be putting away.

Bannan got put out on the left, and was rubbish (as were Wednesday). He was then moved in field and made the team tick, some lovely thru balls that deserved goals. Steve Bruce said afterwards he's learnt how important Bannan is centrally and wont be using him wide again.

Jordan Archer was ok for the most part. But late on had an absolute howler that should have cost Millwall the game. A goal kick that he completely miss-hit. It bounced before it reached his own defenders and Wednesday should really have done better, Fletch being greedy and refusing to lay it off when 2v1 against a defender. At the point where Archer really shouldn't be anywhere near the squad imo. He looks a decent keeper most of the time, but always seems to have a bizarre moment of madness in him.

Just thought I'd note.. Ethan Hamilton's gone out on loan from Man Utd for his first taste of senior football.
Joined Rochdale, who are battling relegation in League One.

Played 90 minutes in all of the 5 games he's been there for so far, and bagged a couple of goals, which is good.
Also racked up 4 bookings in 5 games, so he might be a little bit over excited. But will keep an eye on his progress.

Gerrard has said Dapo Mebude may make an appearance from the bench for Rangers this weekend. He's called him back from Scotland U19 duty because of Morelos' suspension and injuries to Defoe & Lafferty.

Would be good to see the lad get more first teams chances in the same way Johnston is at Celtic
