Shame about Besic, would have been a great replacement for Vieira and an upgrade on Phillips.

Not fussed about Bolasie, had some nasty injuries.

Kalas to Bristol City. Not sure if we're allowed another Chelsea loan, but he'd have been a very good signing.

Going to go out on a limb and suggest we should go in for Gary Medel in January. He would be a quality signing and obviously knows Bielsa very well.

2 players who would have fixed our 2 biggest problems, Kalas and Besic. :(

Not so sure.

DO we need another midget?

5ft7

Should have been in for Kalas and Besic.

He would boss the Championship. It's not always about height.

True, but when you have conceded as many headers and from set pieces as we have in the last 12 months then its daft to ignore it.

Stats were on twitter before, its a lot of headers and set piece goals.

Romain Saiss if Wolves are willing to let him go be good.

McBurnie wouldn't have scored two goals if we had a recognised CB, certainly not the 2nd goal although it was a superb header. We're playing a dangerous game, Millwall will be rubbing their hands with glee if we have the same problem come 15th September

Two sides fancied to have a tilt at auto promotion. Although it's early doors, a draw would be a good result for us. That said, we should just get on with our own games and see where that takes us.

Boro 1-0 WBA.

Boro go top.

Probably deserved win but the goal shouldn't have been allowed.

Real team of hoofers, typical Pulis.

But both them and WBA have huge players (can tell Moore is influenced by Pulis.)

We will have to dominate Boro at Elland road and not let them get any attacking set pieces (including throws), we would get murdered if they get to put freekicks and corners into our box.

Forest 2-2 Birmingham.

Birmingham will feel annoyed, they shouldn't be giving away 2 goal leads.

Credit Forest for coming back.

There sort of a crap version of us atm.

Similar style, not as good at it.

Wonder if we are becoming team's cup final match now and they give it everything against us and then have nothing in the tank for the following match. I did pose the question as to whether McBurnie raised his game significantly because it was against us and perhaps it was a case that all their team did - or maybe they just have a soft underbelly and folded after going behind so quickly.
