|Keane and Norwood|
at 09:35 19 Jan 2020
Keane looked really sharp in the build-up to Downes’s goal - is that a fair reflection of how he played?
That pass from Norwood for Jackson’s goal was sexual. Really encouraging too - I was a bit worried about his vision and decision-making after the second half of the Accrington game.
I don’t think they can play together, but great to have three in form strikers plus Freddie hopefully on his way.
|Another quick striker|
at 14:50 15 Jan 2020
When Jackson is unavailable we currently look very one-paced - it’s hard to see Norwood and Keane as an effective partnership, especially in a 352 with no wingers to help stretch teams.
On paper, Freddie should be an outstanding replacement for Jackson at this level, but will he be the same after his injury?
If not, I’d love us to sign a quick striker to provide competition for KJ. Trouble is, a pacy striker of the required quality would probably cost too much.
Could Dobra play that role? I understand he’s usually more of an attacking midfielder or winger. I’d give it a go if necessary, just for the sake of balance up top.

Almost comical how good that run and touch was from him. Must have seen him play hundreds of times and I’ve never seen him do anything like that. He deserves it!
|Why no Sears on the bench?|

Hoping he’s not injured again. If Jackson has to go off for Keane it will make us very one-paced.
|We need a new CB, don’t we?|
at 14:00 5 Jan 2020
I don’t think a back 3 is the way to go, but if we’re going to persist with it, we surely need a left-sided CB. Woolfie looks better on the right, Chambers needs to play in the centre, and Wilson can’t pass the ball under any kind of pressure on his right foot, never mind his left.
Failing that, Kenlock on the left of the 3 would give us better balance. Whether he’s up to it defensively or not, I don’t know.
|The attitude of our front two|
at 17:30 29 Dec 2019
Norwood has a go at someone every two minutes - usually it’s one of his team mates.
Jackson usually looks like he’s just been given a parking ticket every time an attack breaks down. Today he took it a step further and lost it at someone (I couldn’t see who because they were out of shot).
They played a poor pass into him, he miscontrolled it and it went out for a throw. He was then so busy having a go at whoever it was who passed the ball, that he didn’t notice Lincoln take the throw.
He then dived in and gave away a free kick, before continuing to have a go at the passer. He even placed the ball down and sarcastically showed them how to play a pass.
That’s a problem for me. Everyone has a good attitude when things are going well, but it’s times like these when you need to take responsibility and not blame your team mates for every little thing.
Out of the two I think Norwood is usually the worst - I hope that strop from Jackson wasn’t a sign that it’s spreading. Raises questions about the atmosphere in the dressing room for me.
|How much are home tickets for kids?|
at 12:13 24 Dec 2019
I’m hoping to take my 3 year old and 5 year old nephews to their first game on Boxing Day, but as far as I can see the website is only showing adult prices. Does anyone know how much kids’ tickets usually are? Thanks!
Edit: the ticket office phone number is closed today, annoyingly.

|We should sing songs about Brian Klug really|
at 12:33 13 Dec 2019
How long's he been here? And how many players has he brought through?
Aside from that brief spell at Tottenham (which was something to do with the dark lord, if I recall correctly) he's been an unbelievable servant to the club. Can't think of anyone who's added more value over the last two decades.
|Is PL the most defensive bloke ever?|

From Phil's 'All the guys did well' story on the front page.
'Was the strength of the academy part of why he was keen on the job when he took charge just over a year ago?
"It’s not one thing I thought about, ‘Where are we with the kids’. I see it with my own eye. I don’t need somebody to tell me when I come into a football club what’s right and what’s wrong, my own eyes are my best analysis tool."'
I think he's doing a decent job but bloody hell, is he OK? Seems to take offence at so many innocuous questions. I'm hoping it just sounds worse written down.
|Scoring from a tackle|

Didn’t Jason Cundy do that against us once?
For Tottenham, I think. That would have been about 25 years ago, so hopefully we’ve used up our quota for the next couple of decades too.
|Chambers' two back heels last night|
at 07:34 6 Nov 2019
What was that about? Especially the second one that set them up for an attack. They were within 5 minutes of each other too.
Felt like I was watching a snickers ad - 'You're not you when you're hungry.'

Our boy Gwion has rightfully taken a bit of flak for his performances recently, but against both Accrington and Southend I noticed that his head never went down, even when our fans started groaning.
He was one of our best players in the second half at Accrington, carrying the ball even though tackles were flying in, we were 2-0 down, and he was playing out of position at right back.
Against Southend he was pretty poor throughout, but suddenly when he looked out of the game he took it past the full-back and nearly scored. I like his attitude and I’m hoping he comes good for us, despite his limitations.

Judge was just as bad as Toto yesterday?
That attempted flick over the defender in his own third, which hit the guy in the midriff, was so so poor. Not sure if it’s his confidence that’s shot or his legs - either way it’s difficult to trust him with the ball at the moment.
|Shocking half from Toto but...|

Garbutt hasn’t helped him at all. You’d never know he started his career as a left back.
In fairness to Accrington they’ve exposed those weak points well.
