Nicky Shorey: One of the trialists brought on at half time

A tight first half ended goalless but, when Lomas made 11 changes after the break, including trialists Nicky Shorey, John Paintsil, Lee Cook and Lee Croft, the Bees took control through goals from Sam Saunders, Paul Hayes and Stuart Dallas.

"Firstly it was about protecting those players who you want to be playing for you at the start of the season," said Lomas.

"We were competitive in the first half but we couldn't afford to give those lads too much longer at this stage.

"That's one reason we've brought some extra bodies in, to train with us and have a look at them.

"With so many changes and some unfamiliar faces in the second half we were quite disjointed, and while you don't want to get heavily beaten it wasn't a total shock for those reasons."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
