Man of the Match vs Manchester United

While the score line didn’t fall in our favor, there were still some positives to take from the match. Overall, we put up a decent fight, but one my in particular caught my eye. That man, James McClean.

It was a great debut by the new signing, James McClean. Against even the stiffest competition, McClean was able to play his game on the left wing. The Irish international gets my nod for Man of the Match after playing with such a positive mindset. I was pleased to see a fearless presence on the pitch.

McClean’s speed caused problems for the United defense on several occasions. He was able to get behind and create some crossing opportunities, but was ultimately unlucky not to see one pay off. That will fix itself though as he settles into the team and learns more about the forwards. I’m excited to see what McClean can do in the Championship.
