And I'd want a few more chances created by a #10. So I don't buy in to the Camden/D50 Sow love-in.

No big criticism - he'll come good under Dan.

And his 'running forward with the ball straight into the defence' (and subsequently losing it) happened far too often.

No love in for me, I’m neutral. I was just pointing out the positional point.

And another view is that Agard is not a striker. Cant hold up ball and can't tap in simple crosses. His goals have come when playing in left wing. As for Ugbo then he had very little impact in the game. I just don't remember him doing anything so no idea what Lock was watching.

Yes, that’s the sow I saw, total flop and waste of money imo, hope he proves me wrong but looks way out of his depth. As for Ugbo, afraid I, like the Barnsley fans don’t see anything in him. Was poor imo yesterday.

This. I genuinely think anyone with a good command of English could quite easily do his job.

I barely read anything he writes anymore. It's either a carbon copy of something the MK Dons media team have put out (in which he adds nothing of value), or something he's written completely out of touch with general views on issues at the club.

Lack of any investigative work regarding Lewie, was the thing I found most concerning.

There are numerous sizeable adverts placed by the club in the Citizen every week, and Dons banner ads regularly appear on the Citizen website.

Just thought I'd leave that here.

Yep. You would think that would have been a great opportunity to ask some probing questions and really get into the core of why a club legend with over 650 appearances is suddenly training at Charlton, especially after such a wishy-washy explanation by Pete and Neilson.

He's just a puppet at the end of the day. He wouldn't be able to fulfill his job role for the Citizen if he was stepping on toes.

That's football for you it's all about opinions. This is why VAR will always be controversial unless it just focusses on facts.

For me Sow did exactly as his manager asked him to yesterday. He is a number 9 playing in a number 10 role. I thought he played well. I saw him looking for the ball constantly and he did not look lazy at all.

I bet if he was the number 9 he would have finished the chance Agard had. Then again my 80 year old great aunt could have finished that. Jokes.
