...looks to be playing a league below his level at times.
He's so assured and calm in both boxes.
Those little nutmegs were class.
Some excellent clearing up and tackling.
Do those ITFC managers and coaches who overlooked him feel stupid now?

It's possible, but I think it isn't probable.

I don't mean he personally did anything wrong, I mean burned in the sense that we clearly put a lot of time and effort in attempting to make it happen and ultimately that time was wasted.

There's a lot of conflicting rumours about 'a done deal', 'loans to Championship sides', 'Rodgers job being about to end' etc.
It starts to feel like Celina part 2.
We hopefully won't get burned twice in one window, and potentially (ideally) have an alternative.
But who is he?

Can anyone think of a series of games where it's had a positive effect?
We've done it in cup games for a long while and it never seems to make us any more competitive or likely to get promoted
I get squad players need game time, but surely we could change 4 or 5 not 9 or 10.
Ladapo for instance would benefit from a goal, and I'd think him playing 60 mins and gettig a goal would have set him up nicely for MK.
I just don't think (and this is the important bit) the way WE do it works. It's too wholesale and doesn't appear to benefit the players that play and appears to have no positive and (arguably) a borderline negative on the players that don't.
Also given that these games we throw away come early in the seaaon, surely giving the vast majority of your first team more game time should help them work on their partnerships and game understanding at a time when they need to be cementing it.
The 5 sub rule also means you can take a chunk of them off when we've (hopefully) scored ourselves into a winning position.
We just keep trying the same approach and failing. That's not smart.

I just spelled it the correct old middle English way, as it should have been written back when he was young enough to play 1st team football.

I can't see us giving a 2 year deal to a 35 year old who looks 112.
|Would you start Ladapo tonight...|

...to give him the chacnce to get off the mark?
I wonder if it's worth it so that first goal doesn't become a millstone round his neck.

I would take that start to the season all day long.
Anyone moaning needs to get a little perspective.
How many games did we go before winning last season?
How many games did we fail to beat promoted teams last season?
If you can't enjoy an unbeaten start to the season, what's the point?
Here's to steam rolling the Old Boys' team on Tuesday.

...how good was he when you look back?
I seem to remember a very energetic midfielder with a cracking shot.
But it's a longtime ago and maybe someone a little older than me might have clearer memories?

Bolton are a good side at this level and we won't play many better. Once we got our game going we looked comfortably better than them.
Also a draw reigns in a lot of that crazy expectation we seem to generate. HMS Piss The League can stay in dry dock. This team will do well over 46 games. Especially with a couple of additions.
Also. Yes, same result as the opening game last year, but last year it was against the least fancied promotion side and this year it was against the 2nd best team in league 1 over the second half of the season.
|Someone needs to say to Burns...|

I'm not saying he played badly. I'm saying he looked a bit like a player playing conscious of the wieght of expectation. And I think it could get in his head.
Last season there was none on him and the thrived. He just needs to not try to do to much and he'll smash it
