    Diamond has zero faith in his left foot does he?

    To me it's no good saying we've qualified and we're just going to flick a switch when the Play Offs come around and suddenly start playing well. We need to be building up a head of steam before the play offs. If he'd dramatically changed the side, I could have understood a below par performance, but this is a strong side and we're going through the motions.

    HT, no Mcgeady = no football or goals. Poor team and a very poor performance, not what we needed. It could be worse we could be Pompey..

    Normally really positive but a bit worrying after changing things last week he has resorted to same old set up which hasn’t worked for weeks Really wish we had a midfield

    Johnson really needs to bin this **** formation he's insisting on playing and go to 3 at the back with 2 wing backs and 3 in midfield as well.

    I would have to disagree mate. Our best performance for me was when Doncaster were flying and we murdered them. The 3 in midfield pressed high all game and gave them absolutely no time whatsoever and we came out 4 nil winners. Couple other times he's played it as well we've played well.

    It's very worrying that of the four currently in the play off spots, we are in the worst form. Very reminiscent of the Ross team, that we are so dependent on McGeady in this shape. We need 09 in midfield, because we look dead in there.

    I don't like the shape we are playing. Wyke without AOB hasn't worked and isn't now. Last week has probably proved that Stewart leads the line better on his own.

    3-5-2 is the way forward for me. Hume and Gooch are ready-made WB's. Have 3 in the middle, so we're not overrun and have 2 up top occupying their back 4..
