I watched Uni v Clarence and it didnt look like the same defence as games b4. Midfield couldn't get near the clarence boys either which didnt help . 1 player in the midfield looked very slow and out of shape.Is this a sign of Uni's lack of depth and are they cracking already???

Clarence were sharp and hungry for it, but uni made it easy for them. One of the Uni midfielders was a complete passenger, others disjointed. Very little service out wide or through balls for forwards. Good game for the two Scottish boys

Uni looked like they were playing with lead weights attached to their feet.Clarence very quick and good inter play and passing.

Went to watch uni v clarence close contest!? clarence strolled through centre of midfield. 1 or 2 looked very very sluggish. Clarence midfielder looked very lively and could make any team.

When the likes of: begovic, fielding, wadawu, Mohamad, are fit and healthy and ubaldi starts training, Olympia will have great depth and be heard to beat, just been unlucky with injuries and suspensions but results will go there way.
