Two things really caught my eye when I reviewed yesterday's game on the Guardian Chalkboards:
1 - Kyle Walker was involved in more passing (74 passes) than any other spur, including Luka Modric and Scott Parker. While it's not unusual for fullbacks to be involved this heavily in the passing game (depending on the GK's distribution strategy), I still take this to be a good sign (could you imagine trusting Hutton with this load?). In fact, Walker completed almost as many passes as Modric (56 vs. 58 passes)!
2 - Scott Parker is awesome. We're yet to see if this form translates to bigger opposition, but this was a solid solid game.
