These are thoughts posed as questions really - particularly for anyone who went on Monday. I've only seen the highlights. Harvey Barnes has had a magnificent half season with us, and is surely a star of the future - even at the highest level. But did we slowly become too reliant on him? It's great to see Lloyd Isgrove back, and with him and Hammill in the team we have attacking threats on either flank. If one is closely marked, does the other get more space? It's also more suggestive of the team spirit that got us promoted. We had more shots than Sunderland and more on target. Whilst they are poor, Coleman had begun to eke out small signs of improvement prior to Monday. Monday also provided more proof - if it were needed - that with the squad as it is at the moment we unquestionably do better with 4-5-1 (or 4-1-4-1 in the club's view). Is Mamadou better suited to this type of setup than Tom? The ball sticks to him with his impressive control and layoffs. I expect the lone striker role will probably be rotated between them as Mamadou gets more game time. I think that Thiam looks an incredible prospect - easy to forget that he's only 22. There will come a time when we struggle to hold on to him - even with the new owners. Unlike most on here, I also think Ugbo will have continuing value as an impact player. It's a real shame Everton have rebuffed us over signing Joe Williams permanently. He is a natural and developing replacement for Josh Scowen. We have him for the rest of the season, but we should be grooming another player for that role now, ready for the summer. That way we won't be caught out, as we were when Josh departed. And have we unearthed something special in Ethan Pinnock? He looked impressive on Saturday and strong too, considering his slim build. All that and he is closing in on second top goalscorer! He reminds me a bit of Ian Evans. Let's hope he continues his progress. It sounds too as though Cavare impressed, although I couldn't spot much of him on the highlights. Looking forward to 3-1 (again!) on Saturday.
