You may remember the match at Bourdeaux. The result of the match was only 2-0, but we were comprehensively played off the pitch and was the root cause of this quote from Alan Pardew after the match:
The truth of it is that a lot of our young players who we played tonight, I was expecting a little bit more.
'We will have a good look at them now because I don't think the opportunity is going to come around for them again this season unless we really suffer like we did tonight in terms of who was available because I didn't leave anyone behind who was fit.
