Diego Arismendi - Played the full game for Barnsley, as they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Oakwell. Arismendi was making his debut and impressed the home support with a dominant display as a defensive midfielder, earning the Man of the Match award.
Comments on BarnsleyMAD included Tippex Tykes 'Stunning game, he made the difference. Drove from midfield and won headers galore', roachietyke 'he was the difference. And how powerful was his header?! I was amazed! I think this guy can tackle, he can pass and he has that bit of quality and skill. I think he is much better than Anderson' and BarnsleyOffside 'Diego ‘the Controller’ Arismendi: MOTM 8 - Robins changed the midfield to suit the football we want to play. Arismendi was the perfect solution. He played much deeper than Colace, sitting on the half way line. He frequently moved to the flanks, and read the game excellently. The big difference, though, was his accurate and creative passing. Diego was the half-way-line general we have been crying out for, and his passing range was as good as any other Barnsley player’s.
Louis Moult - Came on after 73 minutes as Bantams boss Peter Taylor looked to put some fresh legs up front as Bradford were pushed further and further back. A lack of service and the team being continually on the backfoot meant he had little chance to make an impact on his third appearance for the club.
Carl Dickinson - Played the whole game at left back, as Pompey drew 1-1 at Reading on his debut, but seemed to be lagging a bit.
Most ratings have Dicko down as a 5 with mornar, from PompeyMAD, saying 'what was worrying as well was the new fullback dickinson, how many times did he dive in, and in the first half got turned inside out by a fairly ordinary wide man.
but we 'are were we are' and if watching the likes of stokes second string(kebe,sonko) means we still have a club, so be it. '
Ibrahima Sonko - Played the whole game as Pompey drew 1-1 with his former club Reading. His safety first approach in kicking the ball into touch is possibly something he has learned from his terrible stay with the Potters but it doesn't please everyone.
He mainly got 6/10 on player ratings with PompeyMAD's northstandcritic 'In Ashdowns defence ,literally is Sonko. His presence in the team represents how low we have plumitted.At coventry he knocked over someones drinks in the executives suites with one of his clearences.He cost Stevenage 10% of their gate receipts with more of his clearnces/passes ,and yesterday not only did he needlesly concede the crucial corner that cost us two points he narrowly failed to assassanate Richard Hughes with another clearance.This guy is dangerous. I dont want to attack Sonko as he is a trier'
