The Fleetwood v Wycombe game was crazy. 3 goals in the first 6 minutes, two players sent off for Fleetwood and missed penalty. Wycombe won 4-1, played against ten men for an hour and still only had 36% possession.
Great to see Joey Bartons horrible team get smashed

A proper game that
You forgot the fake 'crowd' dummies and a flare getting chucked onto the pitch from outside the ground
Really enjoyed it
Wonderful stuff

My word-the keeper for Fleetwood had an absolute stinker didn’t he? Almost singlehandedly has cost them the tie.

He was amazing
Brilliantly saved a penalty and then miraculously got across to save the follow up
But punched one into his own net for one goal and was like a chicken with his head cut off whenever Wycombe put the ball into his penalty area
Can't put all the blame on him though
Lewis Coyle's assault in Fleetwood's area which gave away the penalty and saw him deservedly sent off didn't help
Then Paddy Madden's antics leading to his departure put the tin hat on it
Had a grim smile as Joey Barton patted them both on the back as they headed for the dressing room

Double whammy:

Winger Ryan Kent , who did not contribute a single assist in 21 Premiership appearances last season, will prove his critics wrong in Rangers' bid to stop Celtic competing 10 in a row, says assistant manager Gary McAllister . (Scotland on Sunday)

I liked Kent but end product was definitely the issue

I've said it until I'm blue in the face yet a lot of our fans got out of their seats like clapping seals each time he got the ball.

The kid has so much skill but cannot shoot, pass, or cross to save his life. He was a burden on the team.

Next on the list... Jacob Murphy.

He can't shoot to save his life yet he scored 8 goals last season? He scored 1 in 3 in the league last season which is decent for a winger.

If he'd had an end product at 18 when he was here we'd never have had him in the first place.

That last part is not an argument.

Years after he has left us there are massive question marks about his end product. Yet sky blue elephant thinks otherwise.

Taxi mate.

I'm not saying there aren't question marks but he has clearly added to his game since he left us and he is still young.

He's almost 24. You cannot hide behind his age anymore.

I've given him credit for what ability he has but it is so binary. I'm amazed the experts have just started to work it out after splashing 7 million on him.

Collins is a good shout , 12 goals is not a bad return either

Jack Stephens having a great game for Southampton against Man City, blocking everything.

At the same time Jack Stephens was getting games for Southampton, Bailey Cargill was playing in league 2 for MK Dons.

Obviously they have since been promoted to league one, but it's mental to think both those players were here at the same time and in my opinion had a very level of ability and potential.

He has gone downhill then
One of my best friends is a Notts County fan. Say's Turner is a class above their level, but unfortunately still injury prone. Shame for him but that is not going to change at this point in his career, so I wouldn't expect him to play higher than League 2 from hereon.

Daily Mail reporting that Bournemouth are set to cut costs and offload some big names this summer, including Callum Wilson.
