    Mind the red and linesman were poor over that. Should have had him a yellow and it would have stopped.

    ****ing humiliation that, i can take getting beat but that IS the worst defending i have ever seen, who the **** was defending ? this as gone on and on ower the years and has came back because they sold Bath and wright O Nien is not a frigging defender can they get that in their thick heads, went backwards since last season no renewing for me untill this lot are gone but maybe too late, Eqwah can gan to Hartlepool next season and that is just the start. get a manager in now as well.

    Amazing how stats can hide a performance like that!

    Imagine taking that to someone who didnt watch and just tell them we were unlucky!

    Please accept my upmost apologies. How dare I think that we would start to build on something.

    Great Guinness. Was just an example how the local, match going folk feel. That's it. And it's anti and had enough. That's unequivocal.

    Disagree. Think there are some valid questions raised. Big summer ahead to turn it around or heads should roll, if they don't beforehand.

    A good example of the recruitment was when Mundle signed. KS more or less admitted in interview that they were not looking sign another winger in January, but that the club were made aware that he could be available, so they put a bid in and signed him.
    It was a CF we desperately needed, not another winger.

    The longer this goes the more I think Speakman is a bullshitter who just got lucky for 18 months and we're now reverting to his mean.

    Apologies all for putting the energy of that thought into the ether.
    At least I got Rigg goal right.

    Just playing football doesn’t happen week in week out though mate, teams aren’t going ti play to our strengths we need to have players who can stand up for themselves and get stuck in when they need to.

    Picking the bones out of that will take some doing. For me worst performance since we have been back up. There was just so much wrong.

    I am going for the easy route and say our best players had rubbish games. Worst I have seen Neil in probably 2 years, he looked absolutely shattered. Ekwah was as bad. There is your centre midfield overrun. I thought ONien was very poor today, Ballard defended well enough but on the ball was poor. Jobe was anonymous. Roberts was really poor, Clarke not much better. Adil was really ineffective. When you have so many playing badly resulta like this can happen I suppose.

    Onto Dodds. He looked completely lost. He looked like I felt, shellshocked. The problem is his job is to react, and aftef the 1st goal it was clear where their threat was but zero reaction to it. No subs at half time was borderline negligent. Then to make them at 4 down to me was poor thinking.

    It is never too late to make a change. Personally I have doubts about Speakman overseeing the summer. I think we need a new coach now, to see what he hasnt got in this squad, and make it clear to Speakman what is needed. This run of 10 games has been dreadful and there really does need to be action now, in my opinion.
