Pretty sure he was at the game last night. Walked past us when were were going for some food! Was Judge the only Irishman playing last night?

Who could potentially go?
Goalkeepers - Bart potentially goes on a permanent to Millwall. Think that would be it unless Norris goes back.
Defence - Wolf is the main worry. I can't see any bids coming in for anyone else unless Hurst decides he wants Nsiala again. We need a left back to free up Garbutt allowing him to move forward in my opinion.
Midfield - Potential offers for Downes. We have an abundance of other midfielders so some will have to go if we want anyone in. I don't want Downes to go.
Strikers - Realistically, I don't see us getting anyone. Norwood, Jackson, Sears and Keane is a more than capable strike force with Morris and Folami as backup.
Interesting times ahead!

|Holy vs Norris|
at 12:55 9 Dec 2019
Is Norris now going to get an extended run in the team?
Holy's on the back end of a wonder penalty save which pretty much saved us from defeat after generally playing quite well.
Appeasing Wolves, general rotation, dressing room problems, illness? What do we think?

Lambert seems to have brought in a decent keeper at this level who seems to be improving as games go on. His kicking distance is ridiculous and I'd almost forgot that goal kicks can actually stay in play (as much as I love Bart, he was a rubbish kicker).
A slightly shakey start, but I feel he's really grown (no pun intended haha) into the role. Norris is going to have a tough time breaking into the starting line-up.
For a free at this level, I'm not sure we could of got much better. Same with Norwood - crazy that we paid nothing for him.

The Mrs and I are looking at getting a mortgage in the near future. The slight issue is that my last 3 months show quite a lot of betting activity and she went into her overdraft for approximately 10 minutes haha!
Both our accounts are generally very healthy and we have at least a third of a deposit depending on house price and can comfortably repay. We both have jobs which are very stable.
Are we screwed for a few months?

They've signed some decent players. They've just got George Thorne on loan who is a bit like Huws in that he's been injured a lot but is quality if fit. Matty Taylor has come in on loan from Bristol City as well who should get 15+ goals in this league. Ben Woodburn from Liverpool is no silly loan, Alex Gorrin who we were apparantly linked with, Tariqe Fosu signed from Charlton, Elliot Moore on loan from Leicester. They've also got Jamie Mackie's experience.
The result against Blackpool at the weekend (2-1 Blackpool) was supposedly fortunate in Blackpool's favour with the manager even stating that they were very fortunate. He said that the chances were being created but that they needed a goalscorer which he's tried to rectify bringing Taylor in.
They really should be pushing top 6. Robinson is doing a pretty good job. Roll on November where I may be able to get some free tickets for the Kassam!

Anyone experienced it? My right ankle has started to get worse over the past few months. GP first or straight to a sports physio/therapist?

Following on from Ajax's win last night, what non-English teams have you taken a liking to?
I've always liked Ajax so was delighted for them last night. Tadic's turn has given me ideas for 5 a side tonight as well (get ready for my 'I got injured last night' post tomorrow haha!).
Atalanta (Serie A) are another that I've really enjoyed watching in recent years. They seem to play some good stuff at the moment.

We needed that. Poor match, not a great performance but we grinded out a win! Hopefully the salvation job is on!
Gerken - Good save from the free kick. Some questionable decisions. What on earth was he doing with the keepie-ups?! Still prefer him to Bart at present.
Spence - Fine. I'd say he's improved under Lambert.
Chambers - Solid. Tried to play more on the floor than normal which was good to see.
Pennington - Again, solid. Him and Chambers won pretty much everything in the air today.
Knudsen - Awful on the ball today. He struggles to wrap his foot around the ball when passing down the line. Nearly cost us near the end when he needed to just hoof it into the crowd. Wigan missed a trick by not attacking him more.
Chalobah - Not his biggest fan but did okay today. Makes himself available. He seems to be improving. Slowly winning me round but needs to cut out the simple errors.
Downes - The game seemed to pass him by a bit today. He'll have better games. Didn't do much wrong in fairness but didn't really excite.
Nolan - Annonymously tidy. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not. Probably a bit of both.
Lankester - Didn't come off for him today. Love his positivity but struggled today.
Roberts - Works very hard. Does an alright job of bringing others into the game. An upgrade is needed.
Sears - Good'ol Freddie. Solid forward player. Work horse. Helps Knudsen out so much.
Subs: Edwards rightly came on for Lankester and did okay; nothing spectacular. Dozzell on for Downes. Felt that Dozzell wasn't seeing enough of the ball. I'd like to see him demanding passes to him more. Jackson came on late. Didn't have time to do much.
The referee was pretty shoddy. Good tackles being counted as fouls and buying into the usual Garner antics.
Target man obviously needed and we really needed a second option at left back.
