That was a bit shit. Can we now forget about Izzy playing as full back please. WB maybe, not FB though.

Kachunga and Fonz dreadful. Doyle offered nothing but was fed nothing - again.

Not a good performance. Needs a few L1 standard signings in Jan

There are 14 league games between now and the end of Jan (most of last seasons mid-season signings didn't start playing till February, we can't assume any debutants in Jan).  There'll be just over a third of the season left.  We have to start averaging at least a point a game between now and then, and looking at the fixtures there are plenty of opportunities to pick up some wins, certainly upto Boxing Day.

Look we all know 95% of our squad is L2 we need to amble on till January making sure we beat the likes of Crewe next time out

 

What has happened to that team that were exciting us earlier in the season and getting glowing reviews from opposition Managers?

Couldn’t do much worse perhaps put him central and move Johnstone out right. 

Johnstone's left footed.  If we're going to play a centre back at full back they at least need to be on their correct side.

TBH given how Baptiste was absolutely pivotal to our promotion last year, as important as anyone defensively, I'm amazed he's not been tried at right back.  Puzzling that Isgrove and Brockbank get in before him.

Wasn’t sure if Aimson or Johston were right footed, if either are then they go into right back.

I'm not sure dominating posession necessarily means outplaying teams.

And to be honest, it doesn't appear to be to our advantage. The more we dominate posesssion, the fewer goals we score.

Agreed, perhaps teams are allowing us time to play in the middle 3rd knowing we ain’t got a cutting edge, if we did have cutting edge they’d be more inclined not to let us play middle 3rd, could be that teams have sussed us out and play like they’re the away team even at home, let us dominate then hit us on the break. Evatt needs to sort it out ASAP.

Another week where we ‘should’ have got something but ultimately weren’t good enough. Very much mid-table League One fare from both sides. Probably not much difference between 8th-18th in this league, and it isn’t much fun watching it sometimes.

Good to see @BOWTUN BAKED and NotSoSober Dan after the game.

Top following and fair fucks to those doing the round trip rather than staying over.

He doesn’t suit the way we are playing. Agreed. Not a personal attack on the lad for me but most of the time we may as well have 10 men

Last week I thought bako might of been the answer up front someone a bit more physical and lay the ball off and bring people into play Didn’t happen . Has for kachunga can’t believe he played in the premier league and top flight in Germany

The fact that we haven’t got options is the issue

Absolutely. Our entire squad, other than academy lads, has been assembled without any fees being paid over the last three windows. We've been plagued by injuries all season and then our captain who is one of our main goal threats leaved suddenly in mysterious circumstances. I'll wait until the end of the season before I pass my verdict. In all probability we'll have an inkling after the end of January.

It was the same last year to an extent, the way we set up means we seem to have to be at 100% to win matches, it feels really full on to get points. And even then we don't win them all, yet if we slightly dip in our performance we rarely get anything?

I'm not really sure what the answer is, but would feel more comfortable having tactics that allowed an average performance but still able to win. As teams seem to do to us with frustrating regularity.

Disappointed to say the least dont care if we have 90 % possession to win a game we need to score and not to concede we cannot do either atm. For me we are heading for a relegation battle change of system might be the answer . As for Kachunga how shit is he and Delf What more can I say.

I don't really think we were on top of our game for our only 2 home wins - Oxford and Shrewsbury will be disappointed they didn't get at least a draw, but obviously 2 "worldies" helped in the last one.  And Charlton away, lucky to go in 1-1 at the break,  could have gone either before we ran away with the last half hour.  But I agree it would be great to snatch a 1-0 win away by defending really well and snatching a goal on the break. Lincoln was the nearest we came to that, seems ages ago now.
