    Yes Hiwula missed his chances but nobody else breaks the lines in the team, bringing on that donkey Kastaneer was criminal. He took all attacking impetus that we had out.

    Better 2nd half but a bad loss. Our strikers r not playing well its that simple. Also both left backs are not enough of an attacking threat imo. Kastaneer too we just cant tell if he is good or not

    Bad result but if we keep making chances hopefully we will get back into form

    Godden needs to learn the offside rule, even after his 50th time he still was doing the same bloody thing. I'd give Hiwella away, conference National is his standard at most, and Godden needs some competition as he's plainly not being pushed enough.
    We play some nice stuff, but Christ if we only had a goalscorer we'd be odds on for promotion.

    I really hope not. Usually follows after we reject an approach for the manager, plus we're getting into the colder months and we always seem to be shit in the cold.

    Today down to poor finishing. If I was MR I'd have the strikers after training and they can't leave until they've scored 20 in a row.

    We really need to try playing big man little man upfront. No point keep crossing it in to small players.

    Kastaneer has been eating again as he looked slow and fat when he came on, not looking promising at all

    You're wrong about Hiwula. He is the only player who makes runs in behind, otherwise we just pass the ball across the pitch in front of teams like we did when he went off. He just needs a goal rather than fans jumping on his back

    We need to play O’Hare in the number 10 role. Play Walsh and Kelly sitting a bit deeper

    I can't remember a player who makes my blood boil as much as Hiwula. How many times has he missed that same chance where he opens up his body and puts it wide of the far post!? Must be 15 times I think. Godden was also awful.

    I’m genuinely still trying to figure out what sort of player Kastaneer is. He looks alright when running directly at goal or down the wing, but the 684 stepovers are just fucking wasteful.

    His goal from early this season looks like a freak occurrence also, especially given his ‘shot’ late on...

    We played very well until we got the ball into the box. It was just one of those games that it was clear Tranmere were going to get one chance at some point and it would go in.

    The front 3 are a massive issue. They are just not clinical enough. 19 shots 1 on target, is nowhere near good enough.

    Kastaneer did an apt Sunday lunch time headless chicken act. What the fuck was he trying to do?!

    Hiwula and Godden are ultimately to blame for this result. The game should have been 4-0 by 70 mins. Toothless rubbish. 17 shots on goal and one on target ffs.

    For everyone who wanted O'Hare to play further up. That's what you get.

    The strikers need to get on here and wherever else to see the deserved criticism being shot their way. I honestly can’t believe we didn’t have that wrapped up long before they got their chance

    People being harsh on kast. Beat his man twice aand out it into the 6 yard box and no one there.

    Gotta say though hiwula missing that chance on about 65 mins is fucking criminal.

    Fuck sake we should've won that game!

    Unlucky with Godden hitting the post but one of Hiwula's chances should've gone in. He needs a rest now.

    We are not good enough for top 6 as it stands, no final third and no plan B.

    Our plan B is embarrassing. It's neither one nor the other

    Godden has to finish one of those five chances and then we win comfortably. Drop him for Baka next game.

    Kastaneer did a great run and put the ball on the penalty spot and again no one there. Why do we not have anyone gambling in that area. Incredibly frustrating result!
