    Relieved to see that Dallas seems to be OK.

    Was hoping that Douglas would get a run out, dont think he has done anything wrong and might improve our set piece play.

    You would think by now Bielsa would have had enough of Bamford. But he'll start today agajn. That is on Tuesday night just beggars belief. I wouldn't blame Bamford for the chances he misses. It's Bielsa puts him on the pitch despite failure after failure. Having said that, I hope he scores a hat trick. Thought we were unlucky as well. I wonder how many keepers have got MOM's against us.

    Nearly all the ones where we've drawn or lost, quite unbelievable really.

    That would only happen if he were somehow able to take the kick and then magically transport himself into the area to get on the end of it. Our aerial threat this season has been lower than that of the Doncaster Brownies 2nd Team.
