    You can't expect much of a transformation in a week. And they probably bought Stokes back too soon.

    He was OK in the first half. After the interval the whole team collapsed alarmingly.

    Just confirms what I believe most already knew. The team doesn't have the ability to put two good halves together consistently enough to get us out of it, and that this season is well beyond saving.

    If he didn't know before, Robins has surely just realised the size of the task at hand not just this season, but for next as well.

    14 points from safety.

    May as well stop playing anyone who ain't gonna be here next year and treat the last ten games as training.

    Sadly you can't build an entire squad in one transfer window.

    As soon as I mentioned shits on target, and how positive said shits were, we collapse.

    Now we need 3 wonder shits to bury Bradford. :)

    Even if you didn't think relegation was a certainty before, you have to admit it now.

    Tbf to Venus, he said a long time ago that the team was not good enough for this league.

    You do wonder if Mowbray and Venus saw some of the players they signed.

    Kwame Thomas - really?

    The table does not lie we are a poor side. But we have enough in the squad not to be in the bottom.
    Having many of our better players fit and available during the season may have proven my point but as it is we are where we are through being poor and some rubbish management and coaching.
    I think we will see a complete clear out bar one or two in the close season and we will build in MR's eyes for league 2 and league 1 and I hope he gets that right at least because otherwise will will remain in league 2. So Cheltenham to look forward to next season...so sad.

    Encojraging first half

    The second half was utterly bereft of anything encouraging at all. The real alarming thing was the lack of desire from the players.
    They played like a practice session. I would be amazed if we win more than 1 more this season.

    Much more positive for the first 50 minutes but our lack of quality in both boxes told in the end.

    It's gonna take robins a while to fix the mess left by Slade and Venus, the goal should only be now to build up a bit of momentum for our league 2 campaign.

    His only aim now should be to get the best team and formation to win at Wembley. The players should know that he is now focusing on his selection for wembly. They should know anyone onthat pitch that he thinks Is not giving 100% abd should be dropped.

    Yeh i said first half encouraging

    2nd i agree was bad. We seemed a tired team. 2nd to everything and 2 players couldnt retireve ball from 1 bradford player alot of the time.
