    Derby V Rovers

    Our keeper impressed me though. On the slo-mo, even as Nyambe jumped and missed, his eyeline moved to be watching the guy behind so was well prepped for the header. I’m starting to think he might be our best since Brad.

    The change in playing style and personnel has really been remarkable since the days of Richie Smallwood and long punts to Danny Graham. Kaminski, Holtby, Dolan all have been magnificent upgrades and cost buttons. The current forward line has been eye-opening: Dolan has more tricks than Ronaldo, Armstrong fabulous pace and finishing, Brereton a bull running at defences - hard to see how a defence can keep all three quiet - and average age is what, 21?

    I think you’ve hit the nail on the head Tony, that’s all it boils down to, although I think who partners better with Dolan might be a factor. The fact he’s preferring JRC knocks on the head all the not upsetting Benno, doesn’t like youth nonsense.

    Amazing the number of up and unders played in these vids - never see them today

    What a cart horse Mowbray looked!

    Summer Transfer Window

    Puts a good context to the “unsustainable losses about to precipitate a fire sale of players” we hear about each summer.

    One of an infinite number of alternate futures. If he had broken his leg in the first game we might have gone down etc etc

    I go back to 1968 and I can’t recall a more exciting teen league debut than this. Not just the goal, the penalty and the tricks, but the hunger for and care of the ball - best pass completion rate on the pitch!

    I’m enjoying seeing all the old grounds a lot more than I am our performances! Although Mimms was better than I had remembered.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Wouldn’t disagree Tony, there’s usually two or three at fault for a goal. But if you are the last man back and you decide to step up for offside, you need to get it right. With his pace and athleticism, if he’d gone with the man I doubt there’d have been a clean shot at goal. I’ve never been impressed by his defensive brain and decision-making.

    15-year unbreakable contract, free fish and chips for life from the Hake Boat and play whichever RB combines best with him.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Am I the only one who thought his defending for Newcastle’s goal on Tuesday was pathetic? Plus, against a team who rely on long balls to a big number 9 and against who we expect to dominate possession, I’m not inspired by his one assist and no goals in 150 starts. Or maybe without Travis for him to pass reverse angle balls to from promising positions. Or maybe JRC and Dolan combine much better in training. Or maybe he just doesn’t fancy him. Anyway, I’m keen to see Dolan/JRC in tandem, could be the new Bentley/Emerton.

    Fabulous awareness from Garner for their 3rd. Was that also Nicky Reid of this parish?

    Blimey, in his highlights video from last night it’s like watching a young Ronaldo.

    Newcastle United away in the League Cup

    I don’t get the groupthink on here that Nyambe is Premiership material, he doesn’t have a good defensive brain for me.
  16. Exiled in Toronto

    Bournemouth away

    Disappointing result but I liked a lot of what I saw. Kaminski looks a huge upgrade on Walton, plays sweeper and looks decisive, could even be a Raya with brains. Surprised no mention of Nyambe being awol for the third - I don’t mind Dolan trying tricks in their half, but that was not a situation for the RB to go charging forward. Dolan otherwise - fucking hell! Rothwell doesn’t get involved enough, Holtby is a 50-60 min player still, Johnson was OK I thought. Gave them a hard game and a bit of luck from Holtby disallowed goal, Dolan or Evans would’ve got us a result. Three unstoppable quality finishes from the Cherries - I bet we won’t see another three like that in a game all season.

    Up to 5th! This is our year...!

    Good half given we were supposed to get mullered. Giving as good as we get. Ref is pathetic.

    Other than Garner and Sellars, that was a pretty poor Mackay team. In hindsight, he was lucky to stay in charge for the start of the next season.

    Cracking picture of a packed old Ewood. Only trouble is it’s seconds after McGrath scored Utd’s second in the cup tie

    Leicester away

    I’m loving watching Dolan, he wins the ball back high up the pitch and rarely makes a bad choice on how to use it.

    Leicester away

    Plenty to enjoy about that. We have some cracking youngsters.
  23. Exiled in Toronto

    Leicester away

    Decent first half. Holtby the playmaker and Johnson looking fitter, haven’t noticed Travis much. Personally I didn’t think it was a great ball by Nyambe, there was no way Armstrong was getting to it without being offside. Restricting a top 6 club to one long range effort on goal isn’t bad for any defence, let alone this one.

    Moving from being a joke to being irrelevant to them is some kind of progress...!

    I suspect they were a lot happier when Kean, Shebbie, Shagnew et al were at the wheel.
