Did we dominate more than Cheltenham?

Did we create more chances?

did we defend well when they had the ball? 

Did we press to get the ball back?

Did we press in the right areas?

Did we win the second balls? 
Yeah we did. 

We didn’t get ripped apart because we didn’t let them.

Wow

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

Last 15 minutes of the 1st half we were very good without popping the ball in the onion bag, before and after that we were distinctly average, the worse thing is Cheltenham were shite!

C’mon the first half was good. We played well and we were very unlucky not to be ahead at half time.

When your confidence is fragile you need to score, especially when you’re on top and we didn’t.

Had we done, I have no doubt that we would have gone on to win the game.

You are right though Cheltenham were fucking rubbish and they are in the play-off places currently.

This division is awful. 

The biggest problem is the weak mentality. We have no leaders or talkers.

You cannot teach that.

Lee looks a leader, and a good pro. Different story when he went off.

We need a decent centre half cos delaney is shite 

That marking at the corner . Regardless of how the corner was conceded you cannot stand ball watching like that . These moments change the whole course of matches and we went from being pretty much in control to then trying to break down an 11 man defence .

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. 

Lee is quality but he wasn't exactly having a stormer, he was ticking along, not dominating, I thought Tutte was an improvement, played with more urgency and accuracy.  Individual errors or not, we cant say scoring 1 goal each for Cheltenham and Exeter flattered them, they each had plenty of half chances, 1 goal against reflected our performance.  I never thought we were better overall, had a purple patch for 15 minutes 1st half and some occasional dominance 2nd half, they had more controlled possession than us and even when 1 up had more attacks and corners than us.  We are a long way off currently but today was a step in the right direction for home games - at long last 4 at the back, a real left back, an alternative to Tutte, a chance for Arthur and the first goal-that-meant-anything since November.

That's another shit youth who shouldn't be in a football league team, Politic and Darcy being two others.

I'm struggling to think of a post I've disagreed with more this season.  But each to their own, I'd personally have all 3 as starters in this league, Politic in the Sarce position and Darcy instead of Thomasson or Isgrove.

My old man has watched the Wanderers since March 25 1953 (PNE at home I’m told first game) anyway he’s said he’s never felt as discouraged with recent  home performances. The worst run of results in all that time! Cheltenham 1-1 Crawley 0-1 Tranmere 0-3 and Port Vale 3-6. 
 

How long before FV realise that IE isn’t the man the take this great club forward?

Forget the 65 percent bollocks it means nothing . Evatt’s actually words are we completely dominated the game . The truth is we didn’t 

8 wins from 28 competitive matches is a win rate of 28.6%, most managers walk with those stats but I keep being told it is a long term  project and this is all work in hand. Just hope patience and funds don't run out.

Possession doesn't win matches, sticking it in the back of the net usually does the trick

Darcy 

Seriously

I don’t think we have seen any were enough of darcy to see how he would fair in league 2 . 
Is energy in midfield would be a bonus compared to sarc drifting in and out of the game

1st half was arguably the best I have seen us this season, just didn’t score. 2nd half was same old, poor from start to finish. Another set piece goal for the opposition and we looked exceptionally crap from set pieces as per normal. When do we start saying draws at home in league 2 isn’t enough. 1 win in 8 is poor in any division but in this league it is criminal. Said it before and I’ll say it again, we won’t go down with Evatt at the helm but we will never go up under his stewardship.

First half, no shot on goal until 30 minutes, the next 15 minutes we penned them in, unfortunately likeable lot of times this season when on top, we couldn't score.

I'm not saying we were shit the first 30 minutes, we were no better than them and they weren't that good.

We do have a weak mentality, we can all agree on that, that's up to Evatt to ship those out, and I'm sure he will.

Some of those teams in the play-offs are shite, yet we are nowhere near them.

We all see games differently but I thought they both played well, kept possession, on the front foot, not sure what they did wrong?

Crawford is a fraud, poncing around with all the menace of an effeminate butterfly passing to invisible team mates. For a bloke with the ability to play above this level his application is a disgrace.

Those of a negative persuasion won’t like some of the positives below. But, here’s a selection from our posters, none are my words but plenty of which I agree with.

Jackson - good player, quick and good left foot. Impressive today. Happy to use his right peg too. Much better balance today with options on the left.

We deserved something

Played well in the first half but needed to score and didn’t.

We created more chances in the first half than Parky did in a month.

Half an hour up to half time was really good, should have gone in at least one up.

If Doyle's finishing or their keeper isn't as good, we may have won comfortably,

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

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

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. 

Amazingly were still only 8 points off being in the thick of the Play offs .

Today was a step in the right direction for home games - at long last 4 at the back, a real left back, an alternative to Tutte, a chance for Arthur and the first goal-that-meant-anything since November.

He's never shown any of that ability in a white shirt

The most annoying one of the lot.

A complete shot show.

Weak, slow, easily knocked of the ball, can't tackle, and didn't exactly find his man all the time. Short, can't head it, can't get up and down the pitch. And Scottish.
