A couple of other points I don't think that have been mentioned:

 - On freeze frame, is Doyle possibly about an inch off side for the 1st goal?  I've a feeling VAR would have found his finger nail offside, but I'll take it.  Possibly made up for the Burton disallowed one.  Just surprised Donny didn't make the effort to protest, like Burton did successfully.

 - Some of our long, diagonal passing was fantastic.  It possibly gets taken for granted a bit but the passing of Santos, Aimson and I think it was Lee for the 2nd goal is a pleasure to watch.  MJW great at that too.  Its years since we had players that could do that consistently, it was always frustrating watching the likes of Beevers, Matt Mills trying and failing with the long stuff.

Fuck off. Not you personally, but this sort of shit in general.

I agree.  I hate the rule especially since VAR effectively changed the interpretation of it.  I'd prefer it if the whole body had to be offside for it to be given, supposed to be advantage to the striker but doesn't seem to be in the VAR games.

You saying everyone else is forced to take the knee?

Personally i couldn’t give a flying fuck about taking the knee, it’s run its course now.

Last night was the first time i’ve noticed a team not joining in that’s all.

Pretty much Yes - since SKy put it on there agenda to ram it down our throats at the start of every live televised match

Also it was noticable that last season on quite a few occasions our players didnt take the knee - whats changed this season? I dont think they have had a change of heart - I think they are "encouraged" to do it

It was a treat to see Dapo on the right wing for part of last night, beating the full back as if he wasn't there and putting it on a plate for Kachunga.  If I'm not mistaken that's his first direct assist in the league, very rare for him to cross when he's on the left wing.

It was nice to see his work on the right. Not sure about direct assists, but his work/talent/performances have created a hell of a lot 

Another great stat from last night was with Aimson.

I really do hope this hasn’t passed under the radar but let me see if I’ve got this right:

You win a seat at the Chairperson’s table for the next home game, which happened to be last night, but the person making space on that table was the very person you’d won the opportunity to sit beside, chat to, swap BWFC anecdotes , etc., with wasn’t actually there? I’d say that was fairly poor form on Sharron’s part.

it was disappointing, however i'm sure she had something more important to do.

it didn't spoil the evening one bit, met some very clever people from the UOB who were great to listen to .

the food was superb , and what ever we wanted to drink.

had to sit on my hands to stop me gesticulating to Wellans , still a cheating c..t

My yoof knows a yoof who knows Amaechi and his game and swears he is fucking incredible when he has a chance.

I'm far older than them and just nod and take another gulp from the pint pot.

You can see there's bags of skill there, just hope he can harness it correctly.  Preferably after signing a permanent deal with us.  His free kick was a decent effort. Particularly to a crowd starved of decent set piece delivery

He hasn't impressed yet. Hopefully he'll be up to speed very soon.

He was bizarrely slow when he came on at about 70' v Stockport.

I'm not going to write-off a talent for one 50' interlude in a strange game but that was a bit concerning. But he's young & has a lot to learn.

Very strange stat of Dapo's.  Created over 50 chances and no goals came from them?  (before last night).  Unless they include the goals he scored himself.  I had a quick look through our results and definitely no direct assists before last night, he did earn a couple of pens we scored from, but he tends to either shoot or pass from deeper positions rather than get to the byline and cross like a traditional winger.  Brilliant set up last night on the opposite wing.

I think to an extent, it's inevitable with him playing on the "wrong" side.

If he played on the right, he might create more, but score fewer.
