Feel like I'm in The Twilight Zone or summat, we've a striker scoring a goal every other game and folk want him dropped. The mind fucking boggles.

Here we go again. Lad's played a handful of games and in some aspects looks a cut above what we've got. But already no better than league one at best. He's a teenager, with plenty of time to

I'm surprised Thomason is getting criticism. His emergence has to be one of the few successes this season. Playing 9th tier football in October FFS. Not afraid to get stuck in, looks to play it f

I've been as negative as anybody in recent weeks but I didn't think it was so bad today. Half an hour up to half time was really good, should have gone in at least one up.

They changed things, stopped us working right side and got on top early second half but we still had to gift them the goal, another mess at a set piece. 

We huffed and puffed to get back into it, not surprising given they parked the bus, goal came from the thing we're crying out for the most, somebody bothering defenders closer to Doyle. Evatt reckons he knows that's needed and is trying to sort it, if he does I'll reserve further judgement on him till he's tried it for a run of games. 

Haven't been much of a fan of Isgrove but he was all right today. Not that easy to judge the two new lads on one outing but they were ok by and large. 

Santos played a fair bit better today.

Why can't we play football for 90 minutes? We only ever play good in one half and rarely capitalise on the chances we get in the good half , doyle should have had 3 or 4 first half.

 

 

3 of the teams below us have 2 games in hand on us now  1 team below have 1 game in hand ......it feels like we are almost standing on the trapdoor .

Give over.

Arthur should have been in yes, but no way is he 'more negative than Parky'.

Confidence isn't great and still making mistakes defensively, but we created more chances in the first half than Parky did in a month. 

I believe he’s worse, Parky was playing against better teams week in week out and at a higher level so I can understand why he was negative, Evatt not got that excuse, the standard at this level is woeful, set your team up to play at high tempo and on the front foot and you beat most teams in this league, seems Evatts bottles gone to me, sets up not to lose and it shows.

I think Jones is fine. Better going forward for me, but Brockbank looks a centre half in the making.

Neither are at the heart of our issues.

Brocky is a basic full-back.

No bad thing in itself, but it's difficult for him in a system which asks the full-backs to push forward.

Amazingly were still only 8 points off being in the thick of the Play offs . We do need some wins soon though.

It’s a ridiculous looking table. So close and compact from top to bottom

A bit of perspective 

Lee going off changed a lot of things

Doyle needs to be more clinical, we didn’t look like conceding.

The last two games we’ve conceded from individual errors. 

Two new lads in today and we were the better team. A couple of more bodies in and we’ll be different in the run up to the end of the season. 
 

We aren’t that far off. 

And that offers a realistic perspective of our current situation 👍

If we had won that game, like we ought to have done after our first half performance, then we would all be happy.

However we one again go a goal down and react slowly.

The home form is a big big concern and Arthur should have started.

We need a couple of wins because at the moment we’re looking down rather than up.

I didn't see that first half, we got the ball to Doyle more in half an hour than we did in a couple of games combined, had 10 efforts on goal, 4 on target. What was concerning was that we didn't pick the thread up after half time and lost the initiative too easily, just because they tweaked their shape a bit.

Imo, the shitshow that has been our left side has taken a lot of heat off jones

Hes not up to much, i reckon

Then brockbank came on

Jones improved the longer harry played

Jones is a willing runner down the right and is often involved in our better passages of play down the right.

Not great, but we're in the 4th division. 

You've never liked Brockbank.

I agree about the balance though, much better with options to the left.

For me, it wasnt a lack of a reaction to the goal

I just dont think we played after half time

Maybe cheltenham stopped us?

 

Also, as much as its easy to pick out the shit effort defending the corner, im pretty sure tutte messed up to concede the corner

I dont mind brockbank

I even wanted him to come on

Ive praised him as our best left winger

But i doubt hes ever playing league football for anybody else

See, I disagree wholly. Evatt has said just this week he wants us to keep possession and work the opposition and win games that way. Now, for me, part of the problem is that it tends to break down through a lack of quality and is slow. When we up the pace a bit, we're much better.

More pragmatism required, but we missed loads of chances today.

Clearly loads of issues, and I reckon he's a bit of a stubborn bugger, but negative, certainly not.

We need to play Gnuhua next to Doyle in a 4 4 2. Granted Doyle should have filled his boots today but generally balls into the box have to be perfect as Doyle is the only one in there. 

    Whilst I think Sarcevic is probably our most gifted player he needs dropping until he can play more than 15-20 mins at a time. Crawford is mentally lazy, the amount of stray passes under no pressure is criminal. 

    The most worrying thing for me after listening to Evatts mantra pre season is the lack of urgency & general sharpness, both in body & mind. There is enough ability in this squad to complete at the top of the table but mentally they are woefully short.
