    Zohore on loan for the season. All I know about him is that he's a big unit. Anyone know if he's actually any good?

    Was unplayable for half a season when Warnock first came here, he bullied defenders and had a cracking shot on him, utterly useless in the air though despite his size. He only really showed glimpses of that form for the next 2 seasons after that and don't think he ever made the cut at West Brom either, if you can get him back to his best then you've got a hell of a player though.

    We've made a habit of signing this sort of striker. Absolute unit but couldn't win a header if his life depended on it. Flashbacks to Mathias Ranegie and Stefan Maierhofer (6'8!) still haunt me. Hopefully Rowett can get the best out of him.

    Knew we'd lose to Wycombe. Bialkowski with an absolute howler to gift Wycombe their first goal of the season, we've hit the bar and had about 5 decent chances all from set pieces but it just won't go in. Also a stonewall penalty turned down again for the second game in a row. Time wasting aplenty as expected. Absolutely despise playing sides like this.

    Well we didn’t sign anyone
    Don’t even fill our squad spots which is odd
    We said we needed to sign a striker or number 10 and a CM and got neither
    Shame because the team needs a boost, and the squad looks very thin
    For the 4 spots that go to wingers, CAMs and strikers in our lineup we have only 6 players which isn’t great playing three times a week

    Who’d have thought Harrison gets injured and we now only have 1 striker for the next month it looks like

    We are going backwards at a real speed
    Not scored in 4 full games using 4231, of course Jackett insists on it and we now have no choice because he messed up the window entirely so we have one striker and barely any forward thinking players
    Just shocking this is going to take years to sort this mess out

    Referee evened it out. Wycombe scored directly from a corner and it was ruled out for a foul on Bialkowski when there wasn't a single player within five feet of him :smile: love that. Deserved 3 points and on another day we would've scored 6.

    Interesting that Ipswich have started Ollie Hawkins up front and are smashing the league, much like we did the 3 months we started him up front too
    So glad we decided to convert him to CB last year

    Massive improvement on the horror show that was monday night, could have hit 6 or 7 today if we knew how finish. That also our first away win in the league in over a year. What a time to be alive, an away win in the league and cup this season already. was starting to think i'd never see an away win again.

    Decent point against a really good Exeter team and still haven't technically lost a game this season.

    Scariest thing about our team for today is it’s about as good a team as we can put out at the moment.

    No idea how Cavaleiro’s still starting mind.

    Huge game for both teams this. I’m sure the whole country is paying £15 for this.

    Hoping for plenty of points for Ramsdale for FPL.

    Probably should’ve won that if Mitrovic didn’t have his worst game in a Fulham shirt.

    Off the mark and a performance that should give us some confidence though. Especially 2nd Half we looked miles better than them.

    First half could have been 3-0 up, second half could have been 4-0 down. Our midfield tired and that changed the game completely. Will take the draw, but now got Liverpool, City and Chelsea.
