    Another 2 points dropped today through a lack of quality in front of goal. Still, Ricoh return next Friday with a sell out on the cards, so not too disappointed.

    Solid result for MK Dons - 2-0 home win despite conceding a penalty and going down to 10 men for last quarter or so of game at 1-0.

    Decent 3 points against Bolton, who I expect to see struggle around the bottom end of the table all season. And no red cards this game. Nice.

    Also turns out that Leeds have captured 20 year old Brazilian, and Manchester United target, Adryan on a season long loan deal with a view to a permanent deal from Flamengo. Adryan spent last season on loan at Cellino's old club, Cagliari FC.

    What is it that's going wrong at Bolton?

    Watford boss Beppe Sannino just resigned, a real shame, seemed a great guy but sounds as if player power has forced him out. Names linked with are Oscar Garcia, Fillipo Galli and of course, Di Matteo. Not happy to see the man go.

    There's going to be all sorts of discontent if Watford's new manager isn't up to scratch. Won't be impressed if it was our players that ousted him

    Busy(ish) deadline day for Leeds, obviously the football league clubs get no where near the coverage that the prem does.

    Matt Smith joins Fulham on a 3 year deal - Undisclosed.

    Dominic Poleon signs for Oldham on a 3 year deal - Undisclosed.

    Souleymane Doukara's loan deal has been made permanent on a 3 year deal - Undisclosed.

    Brian Montenegro joins on a season long loan deal form Nacional Asuncion.

    Del Fabro joined on a season long loan deal from Cagliari yesterday.

    Disappointed to see Smith leave, he had a good head on his shoulders, and we're not exactly packing a powerful strike force. Doukara still out with ruptured ankle ligament damage & Poleon heading off to Oldham. A lot of loaned foreign players, I wonder how difficult it will be to get the squad all on the same page. Simon Grayson today ruled himself out of the vacant manager's position.

    Johnstone's Paint Trophy returns tonight with us facing Wycombe for the first time in...a very long time I think.

    Oscar Garcia announced as new head coach, with Director of football Gianluca nani also departing. Slightly unimpressed...

    I'm a Cardiff City fan who is aware of good players on the continent. He's been in team of the week numerous times for FC Lorient. I'm happy that we've bought him. He's the strong commanding defender we need.

    How much do you chaps owe to Tan now? It cleared £100m last season if I'm right.

    Not sure to be honest. I just focus on the football as I can't be bothered with club politics.

    Maybe the goings on at my club have made me all too paranoid about off field antics but I wouldn't totally ignore it. Although with the PL rewarding failure like never before I think you should be alright.

    Doesn't bother me honestly. If we go into administration the fans will save the club like Portsmouth's did and we dust ourselves down and go again in whatever league we're in. What league we're in doesn't matter to me. I support my hometown team through thick and thin and that's all there is to it

    I'm sure we'd all prefer to be in higher leagues though

    Of course. I'd be lying if I said that isn't true.

    Had you heard of him before you were linked with him though?

    Yes. To be honest I believe he's too good for us. He's Premier League level to be fair.
