PL: “I thought Jackson was excellent, I thought his running was excellent. Some really good things there, things we can work on, but it’s a decent start.”
Is PL trying to talk up Jackson to get his confidence level up? No doubt that Jackson is lightning quick, but that apart, there's nothing there for me. I thought he mistimed a few jumps, he runs upfield when a long ball is coming in hoping that the defenders miss it (which they don't), and his touch and interplay is always misplaced. Maybe he got away with that in L2 as the defences might be that much worse, but for me he still looks out of his depth in this League.
I think we desperately need a target man, Norwood would do so much alongside a big man who can win a few balls in the oppo box that are punted up. We just gave possession away every time that happened today.

Town always prefer attacking the SBR end in the second half. Opponents must know this. And 50% of the time they must win the toss. So why don't they choose to attack the SAR in the 1st half?

After relegation, he made a number of statements about how determined he was that we should bounce straight back, and that he would be having more involvement. Where is he now? Was that just to sell more season tickets? Whey has Evans gone quiet?

If we don't get out of this league at the 1st attempt, our Finances this time next year will be in tatters, a permanent reduction of £7M-£9M. We are getting sell-on bonuses that were not guaranteed, and thus could not have been in the budget - for Webster, Clarke & Mings.
Its obvious we need a quality central defender, and a target-man strike partner for Norwood. The central defensive options - Chambers, Nsiala and Woolf - we all know that anyone can get a red card, all you need is an injury and we are playing right backs at center back.
I think we must be pretty desperate to offload Bart from the wage bill, but Evans has got to see whether we do or don't that investing in two more quality players at a cost of maybe £1-2M would greatly increase our chances of promotion back to the Championship and must be a sound business investment.
