Me too.  Puzzling how anyone couldnt see that Darcy has what it takes.  Great set piece delivery, great energy, can see a pass, and breaks from midfield.  He could be what Vela was meant to be.  Despi

Considering what we’ve been through, and the late signing of players at the transfer deadline, I’m delighted.   Like KH said, if we keep looking back we will keep banging our head, let the Accrington

Thought Murphy was terrible and offered nothing all game, he doesn't have any hold up play, he doesn't win headers, he doesn't make defenders work. He scored though so what can you say.

Echo ianexofrochdales sentiments though, Hill really hasn't got a clue tactics or substitution wise. If it's going well he can get away with it but if not he's fucked.

Well yes he scored ...what a tosser ?? He won lots of headers not read by his team mates & bear in mind when a team lacks confidence like ours they tend to hit it long more than usual which puts him under constant pressure.Good as we will get at this level from target man perspective.Verlinden substitution at HT was spot on & it wasnt going well was it?

I think Darcy showed he has the brains and the fitness to make the runs off Murphy

Was his second miss a run in behind Murphy?

Think so.

Only criticism I'd make of his performance yesterday is that on occasions, he joined in with the front line a little too early. Plenty to appreciate though.

Re Murphy; I think folk have to remember he's mid thirties and we can't expect him to be running here there and everywhere. He's putting the ball in the net regularly, and that's what we need. Better service and he'll get more.

Agreed.

I don't quite get the criticism of Murphy, he always puts an honest shift in + he knows were the net is at this level.

I bet the bloke is black + blue the day after a game, because he gets plenty of very close attention from centre halves.

Yes, indeed.

As he gets tightly marked, if we can get someone forward from midfield occasionally (as Darcy was trying) to get beyond, it should help us create more too.

I just thought his all round play yesterday was poor and hangover had me all ranty. Bottom line is that if he can carry on getting a goal every other game then I'd be fine with him sitting reading a book for the other 89 mins.

Darcy would definitely be worth a go in the role Crawford was starting to perform well in, he's a willing runner, good engine, and head up looking for a pass.

of the Bolton Sunday League.

Sunday League players pass to players, not to empty spaces where no other team mate is within chasing distance.

And was it Dodo who calmly allowed the ball to go out... for a Wimbledon throw.

Yeh i noticed that. He clearly thought it came off one of their players last - the ref didn't quite see it that way!

Nor did I. The ball looked as though it hadn't come within about 6' from a Wimbledon player. That's why I was annoyed as hell that he was better placed than me to make the call.

He was obviously confused given we were given a corner that blatantly wasn't.

Things need to improve in my opinion. Is Hill another fraud or are we putting it down to circumstance again?

Saturday was absolutely shite, scraping a draw at the end against a side who were non league until recently

Underwhelmed with Hill so far personally

no one said that.

Hill may be able to do no wrong in some eyes but hes got a lot to prove imo. Starting sharpish

Didnt take long. Just what did you expect with a team of freebies and loans no one else wanted? And 3 of the best if these imho out injured.

Some of our fans are totally unrealistic and tbh i struggle with their attitude

I can see both sides.

Hill's having to work with what he could drag in at the last minute, but we don't seem to be getting any better. Ignore Rotherham, as the players hadn't even met other properly before that game, but we don't actually look any better now than we did against Oxford & Sunderland almost three months ago.

Very poor v AFC Wimbledon, Accy, MK Dons & Plymouth in the last month.

Injuries aren't helping, of course but we're certainly not improving tactically.

Time? No but given cicumstances its hardly been any time at all really. I dont think we can expect immediate improvements. Need a settled side with better players before that will happen

Agree with this. Oxford performance was impressive. Unfortunately, the injuries we have I think are dictating a different approach, which isn't great on the eye but is pragmatic.

Once we get a few back we should (hopefully) start to see an improvement.
