Ever felt like we've won a game by accident?
at 00:54 21 Aug 2019

I don't think I've ever said that until tonight.

We scored two and they scored one, so we deserved to win, but I didn't feel like that if I'm honest. I didn't think we really looked like scoring, apart from corners.

I was always wary tonight could be damp squib, an anti climax etc, because of the expectation of a win, but that first half was as flat as it can get. I thought they did a good job of pressing us and didn't allow us much space, but we had three midfielders on, four if counting El Mizouni (who was half decent), and we had so few spells of passing in the middle of the pitch and seemingly no game plan. Most of our ball came between the back four. I half expected Lambo to make a change during the first half it was so bad.

Second half picked up but even then I think that was simply because of personnel and we still didn't create much. This wasn't helped by the fact we had lots of play out wide but sadly two full backs who aren't great crossers. I'm sure Donacien's evening has been covered at length already on here.

Wonderful corner from Judgey. I hope those who said after the Sunderland game we should have let QPR have him are having a re-think. Norwood's header was a better one than I thought having seen it back.

Could that Jackson goal see him really kick on? Impressively confidence finish.

All in all a slightly worrying game, but as the cliche goes if you're playing badly and winning games you're doing something right.

This was sort of predictable

But it doesn’t excuse it.

No ideas, no space.

Norwood should have scored. Really disappointing half.

Assuming Keane is not yet fit
at 17:43 20 Aug 2019

Who from our injured list would you have for tonight’s game if you could only pick one? Let’s assume they would be fully fit.

Keane
Nsiala
Nolan (been on bench but not played yet)
Garbutt
Lankester
Nydam
Bishop
Sears
Morris
Folami

I’m probably missing a couple. Easily done.

Holy - if people don't think Bart commanded his box I worry about what they'll say about him. Could have come for a lot of long balls and didn't. Didn't have a lot to do in terms of shot stopping. 6
Donacien - I like him defending, not so much attacking. Did okay overall but needs to improve crossing. 6.5
Woolfenden - Did he put a foot wrong? 8
Chambers - Is last season's captain going to be the same player this season, or was that a blip? That type of mistake was uncharacteristic I feel. He is a fairly no nonsense defender most of the time. 5.5
Kenlock - Tends to come out of defensive tussles with the ball but makes me nervous at the same time, feel he will concede chances at times. Again not a great crosser. Shanked one in particular badly. 6.5
Skuse and Downes - Did a lot of good. Downes in particular. 7.5
Rowe - Good first half, should try and get more shots off. Was a good out ball. Tired second half. 6.5
Garbutt - Impressive, lovely goal. Solid midfielder on early viewing. 7.5
Norwood - Looked good and hungry first half, good link play. Didn't get much out of their defence second half. 6.5
Jackson - Finds gaps with his pace but often looks toothless. Probably needs a goal to get going. Yellow for diving looked harsh and his reaction said it all. 6

Judge - give him time.
Dozzell - added a little bit of guile and crossing but wide midfield isn;'t his position as we know.
Roberts - didn't have long enough. Might be useful for a bit of physicality at times.

Garbutt's shot didn't hit Rowe, hit O'Toole.

Holy is a nutcase.

We're gonna win the league.

Holy seems to have claimed a starting place at Burton.

Downes is turning into a really good, wiry, battling midfielder who isn’t afraid to go forward. But also one that needs to clam down.

Our game plan relies on Judge finding Norwood in the box, which he can do with ease at times.

Huws looks good. I feel some people have gone way over the top about his qualities and I’m still not convinced by he could ‘boss’ L1 but he was better than I thought he’d be today. He’s able to turn quickly and carry the ball. Makes it look simple.

Garbutt’s left food isn’t so brilliant on first viewing. Hopefully just an off day.

Our squad still lacks it.

A defender and striker with the promise of some physicality would be really good before Burton.

What happens if you miss a payment? Will they deactivate the card until you’ve paid it or something similar?

Mine isn’t by DD so just out of interest.

Fair to say it’s a little disappointing seeing him go?

He’s barely had a kick, and the kicks he’s had has been in a rubbish team with no confidence. And now we’ve got to replace him.

Just the fact that he scored 14 goals in his last season in league one makes me think we might regret it. You’d have to imagine Lambert rates Jackson at least a little with Harrison going.

Are we going to see him kick off again this season, ala Norwich?

Barton?

Next priority after Norwood?

Got to be a CB hasn't it?

Chambers out the first game, with the only other option being the untried, albeit very promising, Woolfenden.
