First game I missed this season. How did Simpson get on? 

I hope we can bring back that early season intensity soon. Unplayable when we are zipping it about at pace. 

A bit shaky and all over the place.
But I'm confident he will come good, I like the fact he is left footed I find it's comfortable.

Just like Itten and Roofe, he needs minutes under his belt in my opinion.

Must be difficult for Itten as let’s face ot he could have scored a hat-trick last night and still be dropped on Sunday.

Less of an excuse for Roofe/Wright/Hagi. There’s likely only one place up for grabs in team and it’s between those 3 and Arfield.

Wright has shown up well not only last night but any other time he’s played.

Think that's mostly true but Itten has had chances when Morelos/Roofe where both misfiring earlier in the season, couple of good performances & he could've easily been knocking on the door. 

Good performance last night might not have got him in for Sunday but could've put him in line for a start in the last few games of the season, after last night though I wouldn't be surprised if he plays a sub role at best in the remaining games.

Same goes for Hagi btw, he's had his chances when people wanted Aribo out, he never took them and Aribo got the position by default.

Result didn't matter last night (win/draw) but the disappointing thing was players not jumping at the chances they got

Hes started 9 games in all competitions.

How many goals does he have ? Scored a cracker against someone, can't remember who though, and also a vital goal against Motherwell.  The ball doesn't stick to the big man, or Roofe for that matter.  Very noticeable when Alfie isn't playing.

Needs more games good on the ball and a good turn of pace but has the odd error in him but then he's hardly played at all yet so early days.
