Thought 1 - the evolution of Benji Marshall as a footballer is phenomenal. His game is almost unrecognisable from what it was 3 to 5 years. I dont believe I have seen a player so radically change the way they play the game.
Thought 2 - Sironen looks the goods but he hasnt shown that the number 6 is his position yet. Looking forward to see him get more involved over the next few weeks. I want to see the passing game that he was known for in NYC.
Thought 3 - this should be Heighnington’s last year with the club. He has been a loyal servant but I cant see a spot for him next year.
Thought 4 - Utai has to be one of the best buys in the club’s history.
Thought 5 - BMM is going to be very good and was one of our best in the first 40 last night.
