Footballers ( or any other sportspersons) have to take the rough with smooth when using social media can’t pick & choose 

Indeed. At times some of the posts are hideous, but looking at those gonzo put up, its hardly crime of the century. Maybe some were far worse i don't know.

Twitter etc can all go to fuckery though for me.

You also said yesterday he should change to 4-4-2. He’s come in with a plan and to try and change the mentality. Whether we have the players and whether it comes good we will see. But after one half o

As a one off performance I can’t disagree with any of the negative comments being made; Players not living up to their billings, looking tactically naive, no defensive gelling what-so-ever, combinatio

I’d prefer an experienced ex premier league keeper organising my defensive line, we are conceding to many goals that can’t go on and that bit of experience might make all the difference.

Nothing against Evatt is methods all I am asking for is to win games sick and tired of feeling down after another bloody loss .

Yesterday was bad hopefully it's a blip but already I have my doubts seeing some of those players .

How are you going to implement that then? Are you going to send a letter to Ian Evatt?

Not sure what you mean here, you asked how I intend to change things so assumed you wanted my suggestion on how how I would improve it.  Its just discussion/opinions, that's mine FWIW, but its upto to IE to do it his way and if there's enough improvement to win some games I'll happily say 3-5-2 etc is the right way to go for this squad.

Is that polite for stubborn? :)

He's not unique though, all managers will have an idea of how they want to play. If its not working do they stick with it until (if) it does or try something else.

My biggest concerns on yesterday's performance wasn't the system- he can try any formation and it won't work- if players can't pass it quickly and accurately a matter of a few feet then we've got a problem.

The players looked shot and devoid of confidence.

We have to give it more than 1 league game though surely? :)

No, I was asking you how you were actually going to change things, because you said to me:

If you think that's going to change just by hoping for the best, fine

Which I obviously don't, because I don't believe in magical powers.

People certainly have got carried away thinking we will piss the league with a new manager and some non league players, which I guess is why many are upset

I think it was more the big signings like Savacic and Doyle given their pedigree last season 

Doyle’s apparently on £5k a week so budgets aren’t an issue this season as we’ve got one of the biggest if not the biggest 

It’s down to Evatt and this DOF fella to spend the money wisely and get a team out that can beat the likes of Forest Green, Bradford and Crewe at home 

It’s early days, here’s hoping it comes together, but let’s not start making excuses about the personnel we have at our disposal

There's not a keeper in the world who would've saved that shot today.

Aye

Im not sure about the keeper and still dont trust him to catch it but if he can punch it to half way, thatll do for now

The question I keep asking myself is whether or not there was a promotion-winning sqaud available for us to sign from the free agents this summer. We will obviously find out in time, but one thing other clubs have in their favour is they've been able to shape their squads over a few seasons.

It was dreadful though

All things considered, clise to being as bad as anything ive seen from us

A few posters on here have told me in the past that a good coach/ manager can teach a 25 year old footballer to pass it 10 yards

I think not, but we are going to find out as some of our lot clearly cant atm

A sportsman on Twitter is stroking his ego when the going is good. To leave Twitter when the going gets tough is a bit cissy. I’d prefer him to ignore but know it’s there; use the negatives to spur on an improvement so that the ego stroking starts again.

Thing is, that "negatives spurring on" thing happens all the time in matches  - because it's working in real time. So a defender makes two mistakes in quick succession he'll hear some grief from the crowd; but then a few minutes when he puts in a perfectly timed tackle he'll hear appreciation. Often that appreciation will  acknowledge the fact he's getting his act together, and the whole process is thus beneficial. Summat plonked onto a social media board just stays there festering, at least until the next game.

If you take a deep breath and then a sip of your pint on this beautiful day then there's a potential 135pt record breaking season in front of us.

It'll be reet.

Can you be slightly more specific about which pint it is you’re sipping? I’m thinking maybe 12th. I’m also assuming the pints are whisky.

Of course. Just don't understand why we were so bad. Couldn't do the fundamentals; pass it to a teammate. Was really weird.

 

Takes bottle and confidence to play that way in a real match I guess. All very well in training. 

They need to tank someone and then I think it will all start to come together. Our defense is under way too much pressure at the moment. I imagine the idea is that we play fast attacking football and relieve the burden on the back 3. It's not happening yet though.

Dread to think what would happen if we drew a Prem side in a cup competition at the moment. Can you imagine Liverpool against that back three???? :)

I dont buy this - Very few clubs at this level are settled

I accept given we have bought in a whole new squad that other clubs  have players on their books longer than we have had that are used to playing together

But 16 Clubs in this League have changed their manager within the last 12 months 

6 clubs appointed their Manager after Evatt joined us 

Give Evatt 6-8 games to get these players properly organised and see how its looking then 

Dread to think of fans reaction next weekend if we lose at Colchester

my mate shares the same surname with a centre back we had from oxford

He sees em most games but probably not as often as his dad

they both say crellin is fine but not great in the air

Which I'm surprised to hear because so far I think that's been his biggest strength? Coming to collect the ball. Making good decisions about when to catch and when to punch. Commanding his area - for a relatively slight keeper as well!

My point is more about timing and the market than anything else. It's one thing to have a big budget and a big draw, but are there enough good players available on a free transfer in one summer?

The first reference I heard of Sarcevic being fat came from Henshaw on the club’s own official commentary. Seems it got picked up on Twitter by all the people giving him grief.

Ditto. Henshaw is appalling
