And a quite deliberate part of BBM's recruitment strategy when utilising a small squad... apparently.

He hasn't come here to warm the bench for the duration of his loan, that's for sure.

Apologies if this has already been posted, but it's a very interesting period of our history:

The only news I have is that the deal went through successfully at around 4.50pm on Friday. It then required EFL clearance, as all deals do, but this is a formality and doesn’t usually stop clubs announcing a signing. So, in short, I don’t know why neither Dale or Brighton haven’t announced this and can only guess that it’s because they want the player to arrive and do all the photos/interview etc before doing so.

It’s not necessarily the tactics because they worked against Fleetwood. However, we don’t know what the specific instructions within the tactic were yesterday. You could also argue a few individuals had off days too.

We drove forward well enough but then, infuriatingly, went backwards once in the final third of the pitch. It was all very bizarre.

Against Fleetwood, we were out of the traps like a hare and bombarded their box incessantly. It’s that approach and dynamism we need back, and quickly.

The Fleetwood game proved we are good enough. Interestingly, the same Fleetwood who made yesterday’s opponents look ordinary.

Consistency is the key and I would say yesterday and the Swindon game showed us at our worst.

I don’t buy all this “We won’t be judged on our results against the likes of Hull” on Twitter.

They didn’t blow us off the pitch yesterday. We had plenty of the ball - we just did nothing with it. Hull, Fleetwood or Accrington - it matters not. If we have the ball, we have a chance.
It’s time to start creating and taking them.

Honestly don’t know. The contact who gave me this info is adamant it went through at Brighton’s end absolutely fine, albeit late in the day. Just needs EFL clearance now.

Always a chance of something happening I know nothing about. The only way I could guarantee that I missed nothing is if BBM was my contact. Alas he has better things to do than tell me things.

No issue. Signings on deadline day take longer to get processed by the EFL. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was tomorrow before it’s cleared. Nothing stopping us announcing it ‘pending clearance’, but there must be a reason we are waiting.

You’ve landed an absolute gem here. Championship standard at least.

Actually, we did - we met Belgium in the group stages and duly lost!

Ollie isn’t in the team for his goal scoring. He is very good at shielding the ball, turning his man around and then driving forward, which brings others into the game. That said, he did end up forced backwards or into dead ends a few times yesterday. It was a day where you’d have to say the opposition midfield fared the better.

As for Beesley - and this may sound daft for a striker - I believe his primary role will be to cover ground and create space by pulling defenders all over the shop, and pressuring them when they are in possession. This only works if he has a partner to take advantage, which he didn’t yesterday. Naturally, he will be expected to chip in with goals, but I think Humphrys will be looked to on that score and, when he’s fit again, we may see properly what BBM’s desired and preferred formation and style looks like.

That was poor all told but congratulations to Accrington who did a good number on us. People will point to the increased possession and drive during the final 20 minutes, but that was only because Accrington pulled back to protect their lead.

We need to find a way to unlock teams who are physically better placed than us. It’s a game where you imagine Humphrys up front may have worked out better.

Ah well.
