Anyone know why Maddison wasn’t in the squad?

IE said in his interview after that he was ill overnight, but not Covid related.

Funny how we can all see the game differently. I thought that was his best game and despite my liking of Brockbank at RB, I was thinking how difficult it’s going to be for him getting his place back.

I could. Me and my mate both jumped up going mental. And I heard him say 'its offside - it's offside' in a miserable as fuck voice. So I told my mate to stop celebrating and told him the linesman must

Winning obviously helps, but he's the second player this week to say the dressing room is one of the best he's been involved with  

Another win all be it a late 1 but we will have to get used to teams parking the bus at our place definitely need to up the tempo because this passing it around just allows the opposition to get back in shape.

Which was the issue back in the bad old days. Fortunately we have better options but he needs to use them. We now have, for the level, power, speed & skill. We need to be forcing issues ... at least till we're ahead.

I thought Sarce looked better in that no.10 role than when previously asked to be the box to box guy. Unlucky not to grab a goal.

Arthur hasn't impressed when starting, so that's tough.

Same has been said of Sarcevic and Fonz.  Gets judged very quickly, he's only started 4 games - Barrow away (cracking cross for Doyle's header), Bradford home (wasn't subbed off and we won so must have played OK), Orient A - can't pick him out as the under performer that day - Morecambe H - 1 up and in total control until he was replaced by MM.

I'm not saying he should start every game or that he's faultless, I just feel he's not treated the same as others.  Coming on as sub and making something happen seems to count against his chances of starting.

FFS lads we’ve just won our 5th game with a 93 minute winner and fans moaning about the commentary, just switch it off if you don’t like it. 

Reading through some of the comments on here has just reminded me why I can’t be arsed posting on here anymore. Full of fkin idiots

Just going like for like with the subs was a wasted opportunity from Evatt, we were crying out for quicker, more direct passing and people being prepared to run at opponents, if for nothing other than to lure them into fouls and get free kicks. Bringing Arthur on was fine but why at Dapo's expense? The only times they'd looked unsettled were when he was on the ball.

The triumvirate of Lee, MJ and Sarce didn't work and Thomason was a big miss, he can play it quicker, longer and more forward. Sarcevic had a couple of good moments first half but was non existent second half, should have been hooked. Better as a sub in the no 10 role

Doyle's looking a bit flat for me, perhaps understandably, hardly missed a minute for months. Never shirks but been on his heels a few times when good crosses have come in last few games and first touch has been poor. Miller looks a better finisher at minute. 

Set pieces have been picked up earlier in the thread, awful yesterday, as were our crosses from open play. Isgrove was like a little lad on a man's pitch, couldn't reach front post all afternoon from a corner.

Re : Dapo, he looks far more effective down the right, but spends most of the game having to be on the left.

As for Sarc, he was only a good save away from a second half goal.

Agree with all of that, couldn't have put it better.

Its all good having a defensively solid midfield but if the opposition aren't attacking where is the benefit?  If its effectively attack v defence, let's play our best attackers for at least the 2nd half, give them something to think about and make them come out of their comfort zone of clearing balls on the edge of the box.

Reminded me a lot of watching England struggle against teams that sit all 11 behind the ball. We had loads of possession and looked nice passing it around but no final product due to a combination of hard work and sheer bloody mindedness from Barrow and a lack of ideas how to change it up and poor crossing from us. 

3 points is the important thing bring on the Dave Wheater derby and win number 6 in a row.

Haha 

as soon as the ball was played I said offside straight away. 
now Evatt jumping on the bandwagon deflecting the fact we were kak on satdy. 
our crossing was pathetic, our corners were woeful and free kicks couldn’t even lift over the wall. 
Evatt should look at that before blaming the commentary
