Here's some evaluations of our starters so far.

Armstrong: Good hands, bad everything else. 75% of our goals conceded would have been saved by anyone over 5'6".


Hunt: Barely noticed him on the pitch. Decent, I guess.

Valderrama: Good aerial threat and presence in the defense. However, is a bit too fond of risky tackles and often gives away fouls.

Juste: Makes some great tackles, but often picks up bookings. Solid defender.


Stagattuso: Another player whose presence isn't strongly felt, but he does well when he gets the ball and is useful in the attack.


di Creggio: Rapid winger, physicality and stamina are a bit of an issue for him though. Great partnership with Danny Rose.

Ianesta: Very offensive-minded CM, contributes to the attack very well and makes great balls to the wingers and HeungCod.

Buscamonte-Poppleton: Fantastic box-to-box midfielder. Starts attacks and stays involved in them. Rarely our best player, but consistently in the top three. Very pacy and skillful, very capable of getting around defenders.

Shelvey: Great dribbling, good at cutting in and playing lovely balls into the box. Not always very involved in the match but when he is he's always in the right place at the right time.


HeungCod: Great creative force behind Ameobi, frequently contributes with goals and assists. Like a more attacking Buscamonte-Poppleton.


Ameobi: Great strength, great shooting. Not very mobile but a very good target man up front.

If you have any requests (formation change, better stats, etc), questions, or comments post them here.

Huddersfield vs 1FF FC - Premier League

9': Van la Parra shoots about six miles over Armstrong but only inches over the crossbar.
15': GOAL! DI Creggio makes a simple pass to HeungCod, who uses his pace to get past Jorgensen before firing it into the back of the net!
20': Shelvey blasts the ball over the crossbar after a good pass by HeungCod.
23': Ianesta is booked for a tackle on Mounie.
24': Ince hits the crossbar with his free kick.
38': GOAL! On a quick counterattack, HeungCod's shot is saved but goes right to di Creggio who passes it into an open net.
45': GOAL. Palmer scores. It goes right under Armstrong's arm, you'd think this guy could actually try and save things in order to compensate for his height.
48': Armstrong makes a save, his second of the match.
48': PENALTY. I've got no idea what happened here. Update: Just watched the replay, apparently Valderrama tackled Mounie after he shot. Told you, lordofthepies
49': MISS! Armstrong goes the wrong way but Mounie hits it wide.
56': GOAL! After a good pass from Stagattuso, Ameobi takes a touch into the box and fires it into the top left corner. 3-1.
56': Rose comes on for di Creggio.
67': Buscamonte-Poppleton makes a great run from midfield but his shot is narrowly wide.
75': Armstrong makes a good save from Mounie's close range header.
83': GOAL. Mounie heads it over Armstrong to make it 3-2.
90': HeungCod is through on goal with nobody in sight. He dinks it over the goalkeeper... It hits the crossbar, goes directly up, and is cleared out.
90': A kerfuffle in the box sees shots from Ianesta and Buscamonte-Poppleton blocked before HeungCod fires one over the bar
90': Full time.
