This club has a track record of high activity on deadline day in recent years, and if the right bids arrive for any of our decent players before 5pm they will be sold, regardless of the impact on the team.
I'm reserving judgement until midnight tonight when any international last minute deal sheets would definitely have been completed by then. https://www.premierleague.com/news/597652
Bet it's a joy to live with you.

We seem to lose our defensive shape during open play, from what appears to be as a result of the way we press, and when we got the ball we dont seem confident to pass the ball consistently. Our inside wing channel near the box was again wide open and we dont close down players to stop the shots. We cant keep on allowing teams this many opportunities or someone will slaughter us
We allowed them to control the midfield and they pressed well, but mostly the same players last season would have passed around them and kept the ball.
49% possession at home isnt really good enough. Preston made about 70 more passes than Hull but we made 200 less than the game against Hull.
Yet, we created some lovely goals and won. It felt like the opposite of last year, where we often had the performance but no result. I think for a few weeks we need to go back to the players who played well last season and where here for preseason (except Bidwell who was here for preseason and was yet again a 7). That way we can give the new players enough time to getused to the way of playing gradually.
Byers needs to start and so does Routs.

Bit like the start of last season where we were getting results without playing well and thinking we were going to walk the league. Hopefully Cooper gets it sussed earlier than Potter did.
QPR looked a very good side, relaxed in possession with 2 very good wingers
