Nice to have a player leave on genuinely good terms
at 10:33 28 Aug 2016

Gutted to see him go, but at the same time I can't wait to see how he gets on up there. He deserves it.

He spent three loans spells with us, and three years as a permanent player, and has always performed consistently and selflessly, and not to mention scored a few goals. Just a shame we haven't had one this season for him to sign off with.

It's not been often over the last decade that we've had particularly long serving players, so it's nice that we've had one that has served us so well. Always seemed a decent bloke too.

He had to leave at some point, so we might as well get some cash for him, and fairly decent cash. And like some have said, it could be a blessing in disguise. Forces our hand to look for a good young (hopefully) replacement, and/or will give Pitman more game time.
Almost impossible to turn down Newcastle

No he probably won't play much, especially if they go up. But what a move that would be for him.

Good luck to him. Will only have fond memories of Murph.

Time for Bru AND Bishop?

I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I sat down in the upper north and saw how empty the south stand was.

That must have been one of the most understated derby in history. The atmosphere was awful all game. Thankfully the game itself made up for it.

Did they say it was 25,000? It didn't look it!
The Varney affect

Varney gave us oomf last time against Norwich. He's as enthusiastic as player I've seen and that would help massively tomorrow and he will also make a nuisance of himself.

But at the same time, who do you drop to accommodate him?

Ward, Murphy, Sears...They all would be fairly certain starters. And I would try as hard as I could to fit Pitman in too. He wasn't here the last time we played them, and, especially without McGoldrick there, Brett's skill and potential for a goal might be very important.

I've no idea what eleven I'd play. I just hope I'm not dissapointed.
Thread long a deal is McGoldrick on? (n/t)

This isn't a blub or anything silly, but he has a wand of a left foot. Surely that isn't something he's just picked up suddenly. Looks a lovely player albeit not having seen much. I know it was a while ago but surprising he struggled to play even a minute with us and he was so happily let go.

We could use him just for set pieces!
interesting that Mick hasn't learnt from last weekend

Make changes when it's 0-0 not 2-0. Go 2-0 down and hurriedly tells bishop and Dozell to warm up.
This is why I suggested we play our first team again

Pathetic defeat.

Though, a fairly predictable one.

Anyone think we should put the first team out again tomorrow night?
at 11:28 8 Aug 2016

Keep the winning habit going?

They might as well get used to playing Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday.
Why on earth did those two boys not start?
at 18:24 6 Aug 2016

Bishop and Sears wide cannot last...surely!

However, credit for actually making the change, and not just one but two. In previous times it would have been put off until 55 or 60 minutes.

Ward's first and third were most satisfying. When was the last time you saw someone arriving late on the edge of the box and bury it? Miller-esque. The third was nice because it was from outside the area - unheard of!

Grant looked decent, nothing of huge note but looked comfortable on the ball and happy to have it. Both have big claims for a start next week.

Special praise also to Murph who was probably the pick of the players overall today.

A bizarre game really, with all the goals in the second half after a turgid first, sirens, code blues and greens, and the comical nature of security walking onto the pitch before the game had finished! Made for a good laugh.
