    We have three strikers who i would happily sell tomorrow for one who can at least shoot on target.
    Think everyone can see whats wrong with this team. We need a goal scorer

    Possibly, but they've only lost 1 in 6.

    What I don't understand is why we've got such a reluctance to have a go, rather than pass the ball into the goal? Take a shot. Might get a deflection for a goal, corner, might get it back for another go. If you don't try anything, you won't get anything. Can't keep taking that extra touch, sometimes you just need to hit the bloody thing. Speculate to accumulate.

    Unnecessarily throwing Enobakhare and McCallum in together when they’re both ‘new’ to the team is absolutely moronic and screams arrogance from Robins. Enobakhare offered McCallum very little supported and he suffered because of it. No idea what he was thinking.

    I wouldnt write him off, he has some good tekkers, personally I dont Think hes left winger and looked completely lost and anonymous out there, and ended up moving himself to deeplying centre mid to try and get the ball.

    If he was brought in to fill the left mid slot then I don't think hes the answer. I'd like to have a look at him in the number 10 or right hand side though.

    Id play him where Chaplin is

    Everybody else gets slated but Chaplin isn't even in people's minds because of how little he was involved.

    All of our forwards are absolutely dire, cost us another game by not shooting, they were there for the taking and any half decent striker would have hit a hattrick today.

    Consistently inconsistent!

    Remember the slufest on a Monday night in 1996 97 at HR. Lost 2-0 that night from memory and can't think of a game against them since where it was good.

    Still can't get over hiwulllla. First slowly down and falls.over for tap on. Then passes for sum reason. Then gets ball back with open goal and he misses target

    McCallum looked very raw I would have started with Brown, the corner for the goal was given away whe an experienced pro would have controlled it and his control was woeful he is months away from being the right player there.

    Brown I suspect is off and not playing to avoid injury.

    If it wasn't so tragically crap, and it was another team, It'd be a hilarious balls up.

    To be honest I think Mason looks decent is probably cheaper and if we’re building then we may as well give him the experience and spend the money elsewhere

    Most of our chances today fell to midfielders, Thomas, Kelly with two or three, Bayliss...
    However hiwula had one blocked and a couple where he should of shot first time, including that last one, couldn’t believe that.
    Chaplin is getting a bit of unfair stick here as he didn’t have any chances today - ok the goal has gone in off him (haven’t seen it again mind) but the only times he really got near the box with the ball he played it across as he wasn’t in a position to shoot.

    But I think playing mccallum was odd - it showed that he was an inexperienced kid in there today.
    Couple of times we were in decent positions and his touch let us down.

    McCalluk May have been playing as a test to see how wise a decision it was to release junior

    Seen more from Bright in 60 mins than I have in Chaplin in 3000 mins or whatever overly excessive game time he’s had.

    On today’s performance though bright looked very bright indeed.

    Refreshing that it looks like he has TWO good feet.

    Really really flabbergasted how Chaplin is anywhere near our first team. He would struggle in any league two team/national league team.

    Can anybody point out any strength he has? Please enlighten me. As I think I have seen every minute he has been on the pitch doing sweet fa home and away.

    I am guessing Mason still injured - if Brown fit not sure why he didn't play tbh.....having said that hindsight is a wonderful thing!
    A lot were calling for McCallum to start after a couple of cameo appearances from the bench lets not forget!....
    If you are to blood a youngster then Robins may have thought home game against bottom of the league a great time to do it!
    Now id does not look so good an idea after the event!

    Differing opinion I know... generally thought we played well, final decision making however was horrendous. Heavily frustrated, but I’ll get over it quick. Feel this is something that defines our season.

    If we can sort out decision making, we will be a force to reckoned with. Really don’t know what happened with that attempt at the end though. Just needed someone to hammer it in!

    Thought Bright a yard off the pace...just not quite match fit. I’m sure he will be an asset when he is. I think he needs to be more disciplined in his position. He wandered all over the forward and midfield lines and left other city players crowded or exposed. When he trains a few weeks with the team this will improve.
