Me too.  Puzzling how anyone couldnt see that Darcy has what it takes.  Great set piece delivery, great energy, can see a pass, and breaks from midfield.  He could be what Vela was meant to be.  Despi

Yep, we should be pissing this league.    The players he’s brought in with such a massive budget and the time he’s had to work with them means he needs to be sacked immediately.    FV ou

Because at Accrington he played in midfield in a side that conceded 7 and still managed to be the worst player on the park. And I’m not sure he offered much today either to be honest. Chicksen put in far more decent balls than Verlinden did. 

Think Verlinden is best from the bench but I think he played in the cross for the equaliser. 

Which was undefendable,  fantastic delivery.

But yeah, he frustrates.

Weird how we all read the game. I thought Murphy was really poor prior to his goal. Second to everything, poor with the earlier chances and bottled a few challenges he should be winning. Thought both of the younger lads did ok. 

Really missing Ali Crawford as I thought he made us tick.

I agree Murphy was average at best other than his goal.   But I sort of accept that.  He scores goals, he wins a few headers but not loads, and he holds the ball up sometimes but not all the time.  If someone said we could attract a real goalscorer in our situation we would take that all day long, we dont expect him to be a box to box player at the same time, otherwise he wouldnt be here.  Has he been worth the effort to get him?  All day long.

Darcy I thought played quite well, not a fan of Graham so far. We probably need around half a dozen new recruits to have a chance of staying up, could be more depending on who goes back to their respective clubs.

Only allowed 5 loans and under a transfer embargo I think 3 signings would be optimistic.  Not that I'm too bothered as new signings = expense = can we afford it?

Thought you could sign as many loan players as you wanted but only 5 are allowed in the squad. So sign 8/9 then rotate them.

Got to agree.  Verlinden has been a real disappointment, but his cross for the goal was top quality.  Prior to that I'm sure he didnt put one cross in, he was just passing back for Chicksen to cross.  Talk of Stoke recalling him is daft, he's not going to be playing any championship football this season.

Lacking pace at the back, and strength all over.

But still enjoyed most of the match.

With  a very limited playing staff we are doing as well as expected.

Onwards and very slowly upwards

In my defence, I saw the equalisers from the top of the stairs by the concourse stood behind a load of folk so didn’t get to see who crossed it 🙈 I suppose Verlinden is just another of our squad who can look a world beater one minute and hopeless the next. Far from alone in that one. I can find Murphy equally frustrating - great header for the first goal, but the corner previous to that he got his timing and body shape all wrong and was trying to head it from directly beneath it, something that seems to happen far too often for a player of his experience.

Thought Murphy was terrible and offered nothing all game, he doesn't have any hold up play, he doesn't win headers, he doesn't make defenders work. He scored though so what can you say.

Echo ianexofrochdales sentiments though, Hill really hasn't got a clue tactics or substitution wise. If it's going well he can get away with it but if not he's fucked.

With the bench he had available there wasn't much there to change a game outside Verlinden.

It's been the same since he's been here, other than bringing on one of the yoof there's been no options.

Considering what we’ve been through, and the late signing of players at the transfer deadline, I’m delighted.   Like KH said, if we keep looking back we will keep banging our head, let the Accrington score go and let’s move on.  We’ve got a injury list that would damage any side in this league, the kids have come in and are maturing, it’s not going to happen over night, but they will get there.   I’m happy with the direction we are going in as a club, we as fans are hardened and it’s the best period I’ve had in being at the match outside the Allardyce era for fans mentality of understanding where the club is.   Let’s keep it that way until the tide turns for us and beyond.

Is it not the other way. He’s hooked him early a few times?

Could well be

Has to be said, weir does seem to have a career where hes managed to avoid playing many games

Aye. Will be interesting to see what we have lined up. 

I’m still convinced you don’t need to shell out fees in this division.

Really need to hit the ground running
