    Quiet start for him but has had a couple nice touches leading to dangerous Schalke attacks.

    Weston makes a nice run into the box but can't get a foot onto the pass from out wide.

    Some half chances for both teams in the last 10 minutes or so, pretty open game.

    He trucks some gladbach guy in midfield and gets a talking to but no card.

    I liked that tackle. Hard but no yellow. Jermaine Jones-esque

    lol, clown shoes from both teams right there. actually did laugh out loud. it came in back off the corner flag for gladbach, then both teams turned it over consecutively before a gladbach player tried a "schurrle" and blasted it about 40 feet wide.

    If he can turn into a JJ we actually get in his prime I'd be thrilled.

    schalke's keeper thinks he's pirlo apparently. pretty sloppy last 5 minutes.

    miscommunication and weston's pass goes nowhere.

    watched a bit of a fuzzy stream. He had a great tackle in his own box to stop an attacking chance and has offered some bit as the right of a center mid duo. Missed a pass when he zigged and his teammate zagged. Looks like Schalke are playing a 4-2-3-1. He's in his role and system I'd think he'd do best in rn...

    Weston is pinned back pretty deep right now. He's putting in some good defensive work but Schalke is really struggling to maintain any sort of possession. Not his fault tho.

    the schalke keepers service is really something else, he's putting the ball on a plate for their winger at almost the midfield line.

    God after watching the Chelsea Liverpool game earlier this week this is a slog. Might change to the City game at half.

    Weston and most of Schalke gets caught on a counter attack after pushing too high but nothing comes of it for Gladbach except a corner.

    3 corners now. Schalke having a hard time clearing it.

    Oh man they finally clear it and weston makes a gut busting run past the entire gladbach team but his team mate can't slot it into him, he would have had a great look at the goal most likely.

    Oh! Weston makes some nice touches, including winning a header to keep possession for schalke and it's eventually crossed in laser like from wide but the schalke striker can't deflect it on goal.

    And it's 0-0 at half. I give Weston a 6. Probably one of the better Schalke field players. Their keeper is MOTM so far.

    I'd be happier if he wasn't the dirty bastard that JJ turned into.

    Just checked the stats on this - are there really 0 combined shots on target through 60 minutes?

    Yikes.

    I’ve watched the whole game. It’s been terrible.

    Schalke sucked last year and haven’t brought in any meaningful additions. Mid-table finish at best. This attack looks totally impotent. No speed anywhere.

    Horrible giveaway from Schalke and Weston takes a foul in a dangerous spot.

    Schalke's keeper is not impressing.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that Wagner can make them at least watchable by the winter break.
