    My understanding of the 2nd goal, from the TV coverage, was that they gave it as a McFadz own goal, suggesting the ball had already crossed the line before it went in a 2nd time off the guy with his arms above his head. There was still another handball before it hit McFadz though, although much...

    Atmosphere

    Early kick off? Generally subdued mood caused by the death of Snoz? Literally nothing to cheer about on the pitch for 75 minutes? Combination of all 3?

    Maatsen has had no drive to get up the pitch in the last 2 games either. It's like we've told him to stay back and let Kane be the one to get forward because of his delivery, but it makes us very very 1 dimensional and predictable, like you said.

    Yeah, think Fadz again is the only one that gets a 7 from me. Way too many 6s out there today.

    Retrospectively, Sheaf's swing and a miss after 10 mins, at O'Hares 1 decent ball in the final third today was an important moment. Difficult but good chance and the game just went away from us after that. Would have resulted in a very different first half.

    I actually though Dabo was pretty good today for most of the game but his part in the first goal will be what is remembered. Conversely Kane, who got an assist and almost forced an owngoal, was really poor outside of those contributions.

    Thought Godden and Kelly looked very league 1 today. Godden is a passenger when we aren't creating him chances, he's too slow to trouble teams outside the box.

    The look of horror on Robins face, when he'd waited patiently to shake Ishmael's hand while he celebrated and then instead got hugged by him, was hilarious.

    It's like Hyam has a video game style power bar that has to fill up before his leg can pass it.

    I always think Sheaf looks like the kid at school who has really bad visible earwax.

    3 goals scored at home in the first half of 11 games. 16 in the 2nd half of games. It's remarkably one sided.

    Someone was saying O'Hare is their player of the season so far because of how exciting he is. He has a lot of amazing attributes but how can you get excited by a player whose composure around the box is as poor as his is? I'm doing the supporter equivalent of walking back to the halfway line for...
