    Isn't football supposed to have at least a little bit of entertainment in it, yet another bore fest

    Patrick is better than this lad. Patrick has some finesse about him but Afuka looks lost

    Smallwood is like playing with a back 5 still

    Plays a short pass then stops, has no intention of moving forward

    Yet you didn't want Connor Wickham or A.N Other because you claimed him, Derbyshire and Youmbi can fill the gap?

    This first half has established what we knew at the end of last season;

    1. Smallwood and Gilliead aren't good enough in central midfield
    2. We don't have enough goal scoring threats aside from Cook

    OK, the injuries to Cook and Pattison have impacted today but these things happen and show exactly why we should have done better against Mansfield and Grimsby at least.

    Dreadful game.

    Both teams look like a clone of each other, except we are specialists at passing it around the back.

    How could I write off a player before id seen him??? Thats a bizarre thing to say.

    Wickham is shite fella. Thats why he is on the scrap heap. You want dross to replace dross. Brilliant transfer strategy.

    Youmbi can’t be as bad as these lot, surely? Rather give him a go than kids from the higher divisions who just look terrible. I know players can have bad debuts or a few bad games but usually you can see a player in there. Don’t see that with a few of these

    Other than Walker and to a slightly lesser extent, Bobby Pointon this is a snooze fest.

    Will Smallwood take one touch to pass instead of several? He’s not the only one!

    Where has the dynamism gone?

    Agree. You'd think having a 30 man squad would be enough to cope with injuries a lot better than this lot.

    10 goals in 32 games in league one and the championship just last season says you're talking shite m9.

    Suggesting any of the 3 you're relying on are anywhere near Wickhams level is just daft.

    Mind you, you've got form.

    Just let this sink in.
    Hughes thinks Smallwood is captain material.

    I could have stayed at home in Sheffield and had more excitement watching some paint dry. Surprised that there are not grooves worn into the turf

    So, my October trip back has been postponed until the end of November. I wonder if we will have played our way into form by then. Bloody hope so.

    Only 5 goals scored this season up to this point.
    9 of the top 10 are into double figures.
    Yes we are tight at the back but for Christ sake we are boring.
    Lack of goals again is going to let us down this season.

    I think Richards looks a decent player.

    Smallwood needs subbing if we want any attacking threat. He just kills the game.
