Not really.  And I'm not saying he should be sacked.  In my opinion there is a chance to get a tune out of this squad, there's enough quality if the worst players are left out.  And play 4-4-2, with two wide men that can cross a ball, and never hear the word wingback again.  But IE knows best.

What quality FFS

IE is absolutely spot on. Hes still got my full support and fwiw I’m confident that he will sort it. some of u lot thought it was gonna be a cake walk this season. So do some of our pla

I hate playing Oldham. Never got over that Darren Beckford goal. Bogey team, going to curl up in the cupboard under the stairs and drink a 10 pack of Guinness (I will have a bucket)

Really??? 😂 

Johnny is full of it. sad really- give it up mate hes been utter shite.Crawford is massively over rated because he was the best in a terrible team last year. We are showing absolutely no sign of improvement whatsoever and the football we are playing is embarrassing.  Id seriously be thinking of getting rid and asking Graham Alexander or similar to take it on until the end of the season but might just be because im so pissed off at moment

They were better team by far, had loads of good chances. We couldn't even get out of our half for last ten minutes, fuckin useless

That's the worst bit for me, not the breakaway last minute goal as much as the fact that we were 2nd best by a distance for the last 12 minutes or so, exactly as we were v Grimsby.  We have not been on the front foot once for a spell in any game this season towards the end of the game.  Very telling.

This is my worry. Are the players technically good enough to play that style of football over 90 minutes?

I'd argue on current evidence they're a long way short. 

He's had his 6 games to get it right. We need to see a massive improvement over the next 6 or the knives really will be out. 

This experiment is going badly, badly wrong at the moment. And that's coming from a glass half full type.

Seriously? jeez

Yep. 14 months later and it's still shit football and no sign of anything improving despite being in free fall since 2011

Counter argument would be that they can improve at it and eventually it will click but yes, feels like too much too soon at the minute.

Christ it's demoralising. Feels like we've been waiting for it to click every Saturday since 2012. Before you know it 8 years have passed and we're waiting for it to click in League 2.

Got a feeling Crawford might be one of those who became brilliant whilst out injured. Struggling to see what he brings at moment,cant even fall back on his set pieces.

Brockbank is no centreback turned inside out numerous times.

Everything we do is laboured ,like football by numbers ,no spontaneity at all

The lad from Luton was our best player .Speaks volumes.

As someone pointed out we take unesessary risks passing the ball deep for no advantage whatsoever.

Beginning to think we have been sold a pup.

I wish I'd not watched that.

Feel for santos, him the fans and kios  about the only ones who didn't deserve that.

Santos and Delaney are great defenders and distributors of the ball at this level.  Kioso was OK but nothing special, too many blocked crosses and going down blind alleys, but good attitude and surprised how many headers he won.  I just feel Darcy would bring more to the table with the added bonus of being an option from dead balls, also got more of an engine.

Whatever football 'philosophy' you want to put out there on a match day it has to be effective. We are nowhere near being that. Too many risky balls in our own half, too many lapses in concentration, too many in our team who want too long on the ball and are too easily knocked off it. Too many touches, too many ineffective passes, too little penetration from the wing backs, too easily ripped through when we lose it, too many fade out of game in last quarter.

The only decent chance we made second half was from the simplest thing we did all afternoon. We are fannying around trying to turn non league standard players into a low level Arsenal. It's not working and I can't see any sign of when it will.

Our previous low point in my lifetime was being in this division, this is a whole new depth we are plumbing

I'm not telling the other half that we lost yet again, I'm sick of getting ridiculed in my household, any road everything will be just tickety boo once Lloyd Isgrove comes back.

Or another player that looks great when out injured,

Everything we do being laboured is a good summing up. @Take Hunt Off

Amount of times I'm shouting at the TV "just fucking pass it."

So many players hold onto the ball far too long it just kills all the momentum. And if they do pass it quickly they usually don't hit a white shirt. It's fucking infuriating. 

Still in the camp of being patient and giving the system a chance to develop but fuck it's just not working. Needs a real re-think tactically because if the aim is promotion and we keep pursuing this it's going to be too far gone by Christmas.

Try something different against Barrow I beg. I don't care if you drop Doyle and Deflouneso, just try something different, see what else we can offer because it's just head against a brick wall at this stage. Only game we won this season we had less possession than Harrogate. It was actually 61-39 to them. We could be deadly on the counter but instead we're trying to pick the lock through solid banks of 4 when our delivery and passing is just not up to scratch.

Just when you think we've finally hit rock bottom new depths are reached.

At the minute there's only one way we are leaving this division. 

Home record 0-1-3. In Division Four. 

Hard to know whether to be angry, reflective, crestfallen or fatalistic. Been through them all this past 18 months. 

Horrible time to be supporting this great football club.
