#OAFC TEAM NEWS: Coleman, B.Wilson, Gunning, J.Wilson, Mills, Kelly, Winchester, Trialist, Poleon, Green, Turner.

 

Not sure on the formation but would guess at 4-3-3 and the trialists is Ploj.

Gordon and Roy say it's Ploj, MEN says it's Jimmy Keohane.

It's both. Jimmy played first half and was subbed. Steady but nothing that made him stand out. Ploj is on bench!

Not sure if that suggests he is closer or further away to being signed...I would say the former

Still a lot of experimenting going on...think Kelly is confused to his best 11? Doesn't help that Forte, Cassidy and Jones have been out

 

And before someone says that pre season is for experimenting...4 games in you would expect to see the core of the team and formation in place

Shouldn't read much into it although...

 

First half Gunning was atrocious, got better second in fairness. Feeney had him on toast. Looked slow in pace and reactions. Come back from injury so I'll assume it's the Liam Kelly factor. Turner was busy.

 

Green was a mixed bag. Keohane was alright but can't imagine he'll be asked back after that performance. Poleon was lively on the wing, showing some decent touches.

 

Second half we got some success with long balls into the channels, which Murphy and Ploj ran into. Neither had much end product though. Croft was the liveliest but again gave the ball away a lot. Jones looked a classy operator when he came on. Edmundson impressed.

 

Sloppy stuff but certainly a second half improvement. Still rusty.

Go on then. Satisfy my curiosity. Keohane on the left, Ploj on the right. Which one played in each half, please?

On my laptop ploj is the one more to the left ( in purple ) keohane definitely sat out the second half

Keohane in first half & Ploj came on during second. Not sure that any team would start putting together their strongest team with 4 pre-season match to play. Stop being silly. They're still glorified training sessions at the moment.

I thought croft livened us up a bit when he came on and liked the look of edmondsen at the back.

On the whole a bit of a borefest, but pre-season friendlies are all about gearing up towards the proper stuff on Aug 8th.

Definitely need to cut out the comedy defending though!
