    Their tricky winger Seedorf looked like he had got the better of Pinillos (again) and was just about to cut inside to keep the move going when, out of nowhere, our CENTRE FORWARD came steaming back to whip the ball off his toes. His momentum took him towards the corner flag but Bradders was quick in both speed and thought. He could have just launched it out to touch but he turned quickly and chipped a lovely ball towards VA.

    Victor's turn was sublime, as was his quick ball to George Moncur who went on a terrific run that ended in a wonderful second goal. I just thought this was worth mentioning because the two-minute highlight package didn't really do Tom the justice that he deserved. What on earth he was doing right back there is anyone's guess, but what an effective bit of sweeping up that was! Well done our star number nine :)

    When Moncur and Adeboyejo were introduced, Adeboyejo went up top on his own, Moncur just behind him and Bradshaw wide left. Not underestimating Bradshaw's part in the goal or the good work he did, but he wasn't play centre forward at that stage in the game.

    What you talking about? And why rolling your eyes? He was playing wide left at the time.

    Look - I wasn't there and have just watched the ten-minute highlight package. I wasn't commenting on the fact that Bradshaw was playing out of position after the substitutions because, obviously, I didn't know that. I was merely commenting on the fact that our NUMBER NINE, because that is what he is, raced back to help out his full back, and did it very well.

    Not many strikers, especially so late in the game, would have the energy or the will to do what he did. That's all I meant. Oh, and by the way - the package then shows Tom in the middle of the box getting away a couple of good headers late on (from the centre forward position).

    Is that ok now, or should we debate it a little longer?

    Why have you taken offence to me just pointing out he was playing wide left? Why respond in sarcastic manner with emojis of rolling eyes? Why begin your next response with the word 'look'? Why ask "is that OK now"? I was there and I was just politely passing on info of how we'd set up second half and why Bradshaw found himself in the left back position; I thought you might want to know. Obviously not, you want a row. Fcuk knows why. It's tedious.

    There is no debate really. He was playing wide left (as Jay says) or as wide as it gets in this narrow midfield shape we have. That's where he should've been. But credit to him that he's capable and willing to play that position when needed.

    What on earth are you talking about now? I didn't take offence; I didn't respond sarcastically and I certainly don't want an argument with you, or anyone else for that matter.
    Let's leave it there shall we.

    Regardless of where Bradshaw played, he was a cut above yesterday, if we can improve our crossing he'll be on 20+ by crimbo.

    I'll speak for misen, but there's a lot of humour to be fon in sarcasm and ridicule, you talk to any Barnsley fan we survive by adopting an off-kilter sense of humour. At the end of the day sticks and stones.

    He definitely moved to the left of the 3, and I did comment at the time that it was still a brilliant defensive track from him. I don’t think you could ever doubt Bradders commitment, he has lacked in his all round game though for me, however yesterday he did look a lot better outside the box.

    Bradshaw was immense Saturday just like the rest of the team but the smile on his face when the fans where singing about Millwall was classic
