Anyone else think we'll meet Quaison's release fee tomorrow or over the weekend?
More chance after Gudders just got hurt.

Me too. I was very doubtful when I read it on my break around midnight but they were bob on with it again, albeit not the right development.
Any guesses regarding what department the news is related to? Like signings or takeover.

Some positives at half time:

We are not losing by more than 1.
We are really starting to show some consistency in the cups. Consistently Abysmal.

Playing okay without any cutting edge. That said, the opposition don't look much either. I'd give some of the kids a run out.

I'll do the positives:

Rodriguez...shows a bit of class when he gets the chance

I know people are debating how many first teamers are out there but if McNeil/Wood/Tarkowski aren’t then the answer is irrelevant. The absolute difference.

Cork was in the stands with no protective boot on, so that's s positive.

I was told a fee was nearly agreed 10 days ago now, then all went quiet. Like most, I'm not sure what the hell is going on anymore.

Commentary on talksport 2 - they described Robinson’s challenge on JBG as a ‘terrible tackle’
It was filthy and intentional. Won the ball then left one in on JBG. No way he was getting up from that.

Only slight positive with the JBG injury is that it has happened whilst the transfer window is still open

Sick to the pit of my stomach about JBG.
Turned down Iceland to focus on being fit for us and seemed like he was in a good place.
Such a shame.

Not that that`s going to help JBG, just getting back from one knee injury, potential career threatening foul :evil:

Oh! never noticed we'd had so much of the ball, we're always rubbish when we control possession, apart from the Vydra chance we've created little though. And they're a constant danger on the break, I don't expect anything in cups anymore so I'm not disappointed, the bigger worry is JBG and Tarks injuries, we're getting dangerously low on numbers.

Nothing to do with what’s going to happen. This referee was very unlikely to have given that penalty based on his previous record.

There really is no point in highlighting the negatives.

If there was any doubt that Dwight McNeil has carried our creative attacking threat for over a season it's plain to see his importance on this evidence

If Brady’s right foot was for anything other than standing on, 1-1.
