    Had to work tonight so didn't get chance to watch the game but by all accounts it was a great performance. Just want to go on record and say well done to the manager, 2 clean sheets and 2 wins is a good return so fair play to him. I still have my doubts but If he can keep this up then I'll gladly eat humble pie if it means he has us challenging for promotion but I'm still pretty sure he won't. Another thing, I've always said I think Williams is a decent centre half and apparently put in a great performance tonight, I think many still judge him off his performances at left back when it's clear to both him and the fans that he's not a left back. With that said, I hope we get a deal done for Cunningham, exactly what we've been looking for, just a shame we lose him and have to go back to Bell for Cardiff when we all know Bell is finished here, he's never going to be our first choice full back and needs moving into the deadwood pile to ship out.

    Personally think our lack of attacking threat is getting midfield runners in behind the forward, couple of times that happened in the last 20 mins and we looked dangerous, there's a lack of fluidity in our decision making. Almost like the midfielders are so conscious of holding their position on the pitch that they're not willing to be brave enough make offensive runs, the odd occasion they do it really opens teams up.

    Good result, felt we got away with it a bit with Boro missing that sitter. Some good performances out there too, can't really fault anyone, Walton doesn't convince me.

    On top here, got to make it count. All this talk of change of style of play is total nonsense, Lennihan has only knocked it long at every chance. Lot of long balls in general but personally I couldn't care less as long as they're picking up results. I think the manager has made a rod for his own back by making such an issue out of change of style.

    Is there a press conference today? Be interesting to see the managers take on the Mulgrew situation.

    Eh? The bloke who talks way too much is now saying he shouldn't have to answer every question... Well, I wish you f*cking wouldn't to be honest Tony because it's quite obvious you open your mouth without really thinking and tie yourself up in contradictions. Why use 50 words when 10 will do?

    I don't think any of us are brimming with confidence, all of us wanted a good centre half BUT the stats show we were better off without Mulgrew points wise. We have 2 other players more capable than him to step in... Of course everyone would have preferred proven top 6 quality in there.

    Zero chance of Adarabioyo playing right back.

    Right, new day, transfer window is done, for my own sanity I'm going to try and focus on the positives. Johnson and Cunningham both quality signings, definately improve our first 11 and Gallagher gives us more options up front. Hopefully Tosin lives up to expectations and shows City why he should be ahead of Stones and Otamendi. Although Walton isn't ours he's no worse than Raya. I was speaking to my mate is a die hard Wiganer and he said the exact same things about Walton as we did about Raya, flaps on crosses, doesn't command his area and preferred they brought in someone with more experience (which they did). Time will tell if we're better or worse off but on face value it's much the same. On face value the first 11 should be better than last season, you would hope the experience of Cunny, Johnson and Downing would count for something. All we need is the manager to do now is pick our best 11 (with Rothwell) , stay away from a microphone and hope we stay injury free at the back. Take something away from Fulham and a half decent defensive performance would boost confidence and the general mood. A decent free signing or two would be ideal to just ease some nerves, someone like Lynch on low wages wouldn't be bad to help squad numbers but Vorm and Neustadter would be ideal, I hope we're still looking, hope Sharpe can find out if we'll be looking at free agents. All in all I'd say the window has been a 6/10, maybe better or worse dependant on how Tosin performs.

    We were literally one decent centre half away from a good window IMO but the lack of strengthening there is so crucial that it makes it a poor window, especially when looking at how many goals we conceded last season. A lot of responsibility lies in Tosin this season and it seriously calls into question why Mowbray made this signing. Backed himself into a corner regarding team selection, paid a fee for a player on loan when Wigan are signing Pearce from Leeds for 200k!!! They haven't a fecking clue about the market or even about many players, who they are, their strengths, etc... That's obviously why they have a recruitment team. The best signing he's made is one that he saw with his own 2 eyes, Rothwell, Brereton was one he had no idea about that was suggested by the recruitment team. Lack of knowledge about the market and footballers in general is alarming. Also... Has Mulgrew even gone? Would have thought this would have been announced by now.

    Well the stats suggest he probably cost us more goals than scored so hopefully it will even itself out.
