I’m saying i’d like to see our attacking players up their game.

Correct. 

Our form is based on the back 5 and the 2 holding midfielders, doing a terrific job.

We have failed to finish teams off and it’s only cost us once @ Bradford so far.....

Our attacking play has not been representative of 10 wins from 11 in my opinion.

We will not continue to keep edging it out by one goal, football doesn’t work like that.

No we don't. We win every game 1-0 between now and the end of the season and we go up as champions.  Now's not the time for trying to turn 1-0 wins into 3-0 ones.  The system works. Don't pi

Pretend it's a broken arm. You'll be reet.

I’m not going to be drawn into an arguement. I’ve just giving my views on how I’d like to see us step it up in the final third, thats all

I'm sure we'd all like to see us play like Barcelona for 90 minutes solid and muller everyone 5-0, but we're in League 2 mate.

All of them, excluding Doyle and Lee. Afolayan and Delf especially, need to start chipping in with goals IMO 

Delf assisted the goal and while it wasn’t Afolayans best game he was more than influential in a convincing performance. Unless you are suggesting that we should brush away every team by 3/4 goals I’m really not sure what your problem is

I’ve never said we should be brushing sides away. I do however, think that our attacking play could be better. 
 

And for the record the two players mentioned were poor today

Although no team in league 2 has scored more than us in the last 10 games.

Aye.

Our final ball could be better at times (probably true of all teams in division 4), but we don't play such a direct game and load balls into the box.

Other teams may do, and sometimes it yields a few goals. On other occasions, it doesn't quite drop for strikers and they don't score. More of a feast or famine type approach. 

Our style is more consistent, and as such we are showing we can go for prolonged periods with narrow victories. 

It will end at some point, but that doesn't mean we're suddenly shite or likely to fail. 

We're still getting wins even when a key player isn't available or IE makes a tactical change her or there. Good enough for me.

35pts from 39 & some people are still focusing on the negatives... Is it me? 🤔

No. Moaners will always moan. We're fckn ace us. Todays result coincided with a Naked wines delivery, so maybe looking through red tinted specs, but every club who have to play us are shittin' themselves.................

We’ve scored in each of the last 16 games and have only failed to score in 2 of the last 25 games.

We average 1.5 goals per game in the last 15 games and only 2 teams have scored more than us.

I do agree that the final ball is often sloppy and it’s frustrating not to turn good areas into actual chances - but we’re league 2, and if we did then we’d win 5-0 every week which isn’t realistic.

Really ? 
 

Gilks did not make a save, they had one real chance when John got back. Gilks was brilliant taking a few crosses . Not sure how that becomes 'easily lost' . We were slower today but that is the difference when you are a goal up against a team above you in the league. 
 

Today was simply a professional job that we executed well. Of course would love us to be 2 or 3 up but would rather we kept our shape and deny the opposition any real chances or build up of pressure. Is that 13 unbeaten with 35 points from 39 ? 

Gilks didn’t make a save because their forwards were crap, if they hadn’t been we could easily have lost that game. I agree it was a professional job well executed but with their recent weak record and losing their key striker after 2 minutes, I’d have like to see us trying a little harder for a second rather than just sit back. I know I sound to be moaning but one goal ahead can always be lost and when the chance for more is there I’d like us to take it.

I thought it was a professional performance today against the best side we’ve played since being on this run.  Two good footballing sides who cancelled each other out with a moment of brilliance being the difference.

FGR did their homework and singled out Dapo for treatment and whilst it affected him, it meant other players could step up.  MJ didn’t have his best game and we looked slightly sloppier than we have done in previous games.  Lucky for us their star player got injured, as they offered nothing up front.

It was the most nervous I’ve been in a game since Forest and Peterborough before that.  Massive win and now really believing.

The 4 of Santos, Baptiste, MJ and Lee are better than anything in the league which is why we are solid and gives us the platform to win games

Ok I am sure we all would love to be comfortable. But.....for the first time in years we have team working to a successful plan. 
If we push for another goal it equally increases the risk of them equalising. Arguably the one game we really pushed Morecambe ended with Maddison sent off and cost us points. Balance that with Bradford, but overall we are miles ahead playing the way we do. Imagine we now have a defence you think are unlikely to concede who thought that might happen after Port Vale and Orient 

 

Not been mentioned but their central midfield player should have booked for the pull back on Lee and the tackle on Dapo was a definite yellow

So we shouldn’t be brushing sides away who are above us by 3/4 goals,  it’s not god enough beating them 0-1 with an utterly professional performance, so I’ll ask again what are you you actually expecting of a team that has won 11 drawn 2 of the last 13?
