    Fair bit of possession in their half but when it’s slow ball the lack of movement is shocking. He’s very hit and miss, but it’s worth giving Walker a go. When on it his movement is good.

    Has everyone been ill? The whole team looks tired. Way too much jogging around. Kelly on now isn’t going to help with our offensive play, but will add some stability.

    Absolutely terrible from Dabo. Whole team don’t look up for it yet. We’ll come through though, Sheaf, Hamer, COH, Gyokeres will find their feet and that’ll change the game.

    How anyone doesn’t see the value of Gyokeres, even though he isn’t scoring, is beyond me. Exact same for O’Hare too.

    The central three of the midfield is by far our best footballing combination. Not comfortable with Dabo at CB again, but needs must. Looking forward to seeing us play today - lots of good technical players on the pitch. We use need to ensure we get the ball to be able to play.

    Match Thread Bournemouth away

    All part of it - those lows made it even more of a special ending in my opinion. I remember how grim some of those games were, I recall sitting there and looking around thinking this is the real hardcore support now, as nobody else would pay for this. I even had a temporary seed of doubt re MR...

    Used to love this, binged it when I first discovered it, but sort of lost track since he moved to New York (I think it was NY?), so not sure what season that was. Need to get back into to as it was great.

    Time to go Robins

    Do not see the point of creating accounts just to WUM. It’s genuinely tragic.

    Match Thread Bournemouth away

    Nobody wants to get carried away, but from day one this season has had a special buzz and aura about it. The player fan relationship, the player camaraderie, the positive noises from the club. It’s all very reminiscent of that L2 season. Fans were incredible again today, we have a lot of...

    Match Thread Birmingham City (H) - 7:45 Tue 23rd Nov

    Definitely a red, not for last man, but he was absolutely nowhere near the ball and had absolutely zero intent of getting it. Why should “tactical fouls” allowed, it was an appalling challenge and got what it deserved. However I think it’ll actually make it harder for us now as they’ll close...

    Really disappointed there’s no Sheaf, but pleased Maasten is back. Big Dabo fan but on form I would have played Kane. Kelly will add some stability and positioning but will take away attacking intent. Maybe it will allow Hamer more space and freedom. Birmingham are clearly long ball/long...

    Match Thread Sheffield Utd (a) - 12:30 - Sat 20th

    Sheaf still showing his ability and how he can dictate a game. No different to previous games, but it’s not overshadowed by a mistake today so people aren’t as narrow minded/have no excuse to moan. Kane increasingly growing on me too. Always rated his crossing ability but he’s showing a lot...

    Everyone doing their job well - no need to look for faults. We look very comfortable against a good side. Sheaf and Kane standing out on the ball and Allen and McFadzean off it.
