Wise beyond his years. Anyone else notice that when he saw Dawkins was about to come on he sprinted to the left wing to get as far away from the dugout as possible.

Looked closely at the defending last couple of games. I've been shocked by the general lack of technique. I'm not a fantastic footballer by any means however I had a decent colts coach and he taught me the basics of defending. I found a few key issues.
Getting tight - For their first two goals Spence was nowhere near tight enough to the winger. When you give a winger a couple of yards it's not hard to make an angle for a cross. I also noted for the second goal Spence managed to get squared up which made it easy for the winger to make that half yard he needed. He then also inexplicably tried to stop the cross with his left foot. If he'd used his right foot it would have probably been a corner instead of a goal.
Body positioning - For the first goal Knudsen's body positioning was terrible. It's a lot harder to defend when angled towards your own goal. Had he opened his body up he'd have had a better idea of what was around him and any clearance would have gone away from the goal and not straight at Bart who then fumbled.
Showing inside/outside - Another basic of defending is deciding whether to show the attacker the inside or outside. I could not understand why Knudsen showed Barnes the inside basically inviting him to shoot. If he's showed him the outside yes they may have scored from the cross however we'd have been far better equipped to prevent an attempt on goal.
I just find it baffling players can make it to this level with such obvious technical deficiencies.

There was a clear change in tactic with attacking throws on Saturday with every throw going short. Now I know we are trying to keep the ball more and Milwall are good in the air however given our toothless attack surely it would have made sense to get our three centre backs into the box every now and again?

Is there really any point us playing wingers when we can't get bodies in the box? Got to go two up top.

Sky are linking us and Preston with Jayden Stockley from Exeter. Highly rated target man in League 2.

Looks to be off to Reading for a fee rising to £1.5m. Would have liked to seen us in the mix at that price. His movement is exceptional, great finisher and decent with both feet.
I know it's a big fee for us but it's very good value when you look at some of the other fees being quoted.

Does anyone know why our players have started giving interviews to The S*n? Are these agent-driven interviews or something the club has organised?

Gone back to Aldershot on a permanent deal according to Sky.

Released by Fulham. I imagine Mick will fancy him on a free, just hope he's not a cheap alternative to Huws.
