So we lost 4-1. We lost 4-1. Against Blackburn Rovers. That's local rivals Blackburn Rovers. That's local comedy club and joke act Blackburn Rovers. One-dimensional Blackburn Rovers - stop Jordan Rhodes and you stop Blackburn Rovers.
It was supposed to be so easy.
So yeah, Five Things We Already Knew:
I think that's all that needs saying. Dougie Freedman - sort it out. Quick.
The transfer deadline is fast approaching and we're in dire straits (not the band, sadly). Poorest start to a season since 1984, the year after my birth. That's a long time. Every single "must win" game is now a double "must win" game. We need to ship out the dross - you know who you are - and bring in players who WANT to play for the club.
Failing that, sack them all off and play the Development Squad. I would gain more pleasure from watching their progress than us stutter and fail with expensive underperforming "senior" professionals.
I need another beer.
