What do visiting managers say to their players just before sending their players out? "These blokes think they are Barcelona with their swanky stadium and tippy tappy building form the back... ta

Starting to get on my tits now this fucking idiot. Weve heard it all before pal. The only issue with our performances is you trying make a gaggle of spastics play like barca-fucking-lona.

And to think when we were in the lower reaches of the champ and in L1 some on here had us believe the Calibre of players we had were unable to play short sharp passing like this.    yet you’ve

I reread it and perhaps I was wrong

However I expect it would be far worse if fans were in the stadium, imagine the howls of derision every time Crellin goes near the ball

Fully agree

They'd be utter moonmen, though as I'm sure you will agree

Calling out players in public - bollock them in private ffs.

Now it's social media.

We've been sold another pup.

Talks the talk but the walk.

The rot must stop.

Another Charlie Onions fond of ballooning - who'd even heard of him this time last year?

Bingo !!!!!!   He's lost the dressing room ( even better with the added drama of "I heard that the players were squaring up to him at half time ), the job's too big for him & now the classic "he's blaming the fans ".

Well if they were squaring up to him I would be surprised they don’t look like they have much fight in the lot of them

Not sure how reliable that info is but - they gave a penalty in the first minute and let in 2 free kicks, not really his fault.

Can blame his tactics and all the other stuff but individual errors are constantly letting us down.

If they're squaring up to him he must have said something out of order. Which wouldn't surprise me after the Man Up comment.

Even at Sunday league level you know that if the team's playing badly everyone gets it in the neck.  There will be players doing their job to a reasonable level, let's say Tutte or Delaney for eg, and they sit in the dressing room and have to listen to be being bollocked for not caring, for being happy with Div 2 mediocrity etc.  Its no surprise some would get wound up, IE wouldn't be on his own though it seems most managers do generalising after a defeat (or a win come to that).

I wasn't serious but you make a fair point that these players don't seem to have much fight /mental toughness in them. IE doesn't strike me as a softie, so it could point to Tobias having had a bigger say in the signings.

You misunderstand......I was mocking the tripe that gets trotted out every time a manager is under pressure (" Negative football " or a worldbeater who should be getting picked could be along soon )

He's clearly decent.

It's all about recruitment now. 

Said before, tactics, vision and ethos are great but you still need the players to be up to it.

I remember Evatt saying a pre-season interview that if it wasn't working on the pitch he wouldn't hesitate to change it mid-game, I've not seen any of it yet and most games the football we have been trying to play hasn't been working, there's the odd 10 minute patch were it looks pretty, but overall it's been pretty poor. At this moment the players dont look up for it, they dont look comfortable on the ball and they are showing no urgency, intent or passion and they certainly dont look like they want to win a game.

The only positives I can see at the moment are Santos, who has gradually got better by game, Tutte and Delaney looks sound enough but without being spectacular, buts its steadiness we need at the moment, Sarcevic looks fitter and he seems our only goal scorer. White looks okay to me, at least he looks comfortable on the ball and can play, there's a roll for him, unfortunately there's no fucker helping him out.

As stated before, Evatt gets the time, we need to back him, most of all the players do.

Evatt said last week that he thinks half the problem is that these players can't form any bonds outside of training. They just come in and then leave without being able to socialise. 

Clutching at straws here but maybe that's a factor?

White still has a habit of turning into trouble, and lacks some physicality. 

Doesn't appear dynamic.

Sarcevic starting to look the part, but Crawford is too lightweight and can't tackle. Favours a poor man's Claus Jensen.

I had similar thoughts this evening. What has happened to Crawford? He’s so inconsistent! I’d have had him off today, but that said there’s probably no one else who puts that pass through for the goal. He has patches where he’s looking for the ball all the time (even though 6/10 he’s giving it away) and then other times he disappears - Claus Jensen is a great comparison.

It could be a team of strangers but don’t think it’s been much different at a lot other clubs this season.  Comes down to the mentality of the players and Evatt mentioned that was something they looked at when they signed them . So he is back peddling with that one

There's probably an element of truth in it, and it's a particular problem for us as we have a whole new squad, but just like the suggestion earlier in the season that having a crowd behind us might've spurned us on to victory, it feels like something to put forward when looking to make excuses.

I don't mean you personally because I've been looking for things to explain what's happening myself, and I think we all want to avoid having to admit our team's just not very good, but I think sometimes we just have to face facts - they need to do better.

Please allow me this one morsel of comfort to cling onto?

Saturdays team could well be interesting. I can see a good few squad players getting a game, Greenidge will start, Mascoll/Gordon, Gilks, Hickman will all play too.

Might be too soon for Miller and Isgrove to start but think both will get minutes and I can see Darcy dropping back to play in Crawford’s roll
