    Part of that is because Ponticelli whenever I've seen him as ran around like a headless chicken

    This game sums up robin’s failings - and the fact that the player he released is scoring every single game virtually

    No chance of promotion if you can't win at home against poor opposition.
    All of these teams know our weaknesses from watching prior game tapes.
    Should have made changes immediately after they scored.

    Enobakhare is more interested in getting clips for his YouTube skills compilation than he is actually helping the team

    It's called movement. All the best players do it. You should read up on it.

    But we are still shite at game management. constantly we we get fouled and player don't appeal. We need to learn the dark arts.

    We don't waste much time in corners or give away fouls that kill pressure.

    When we are winning its still nervy as we don't kill matches off

    I’m Not going to get frustrated that we aren’t acting like Oxford did today.

    Poor day but still in play off mix.
