the team looked fluid and well up for the match which isn't always the case in opening games. Allardyce has put this down to starting earlier than most other sides in his pre season preparations but whatever it was i am happy with.
the most crucial thing is to not undo this work with a shoddy away display, as was the case at the start of last season.
Cardiff will need to do a bit more than just try to foul all around the middle of the pitch but it's hard to properly judge them since they will need some adaptation time. that said, i am always delighted when we beat those burberry capped chavs.
enjoyable win all round and i can not think of a single negative from the game (that isn't to say it was perfect, simply that nothing needs highlighting). the most pleasing thing was our strength on the bench and the fact that players like Jack Collison couldn't even make it onto the bench. strength in numbers will be crucial to bettering our position from last season and competition for places will be fierce. it's a very rare thing for us to have, that is for sure.
