    What a promotion got to do with beating relegation zone teams when 1 up after 60 mins?

    Why does Chaplin never get stuck out wide?

    It's no wonder that players are being taken off and are being pissed off about it.

    Well done Martin Winch for asking Robins what the thinking was in subbing Hiwula.

    He doesn’t really ask questions. He gives statements, like he is now to Chaplin, like ‘you should have won that game’ etc Or ‘how was it with Enobakhare?’ Who cares?

    Very disappointed by that. Especially on the back of the last couple of weeks.

    As i said in previous posts what the fuck does MR say in the dressing room at half time because its constant through out the season! i go to matches preying that we get 2 goals up before they go in for the MR pep talk jeesh! whatever he does he should bottle it and give it to the opposition manager before the game starts. Also its becoming quite omnious that after 60 to 65 minutes he brings on JCH to play a lone striker role which immediatly lets them release a deep midfielder into the space behind our midfield which enables them to push us back 20/25 yards.

    After today, we have played a game more than a fair few teams below us.

    A couple more bad results could see us drop a fair few places and into the mix.

    I called this one right in the prediction league (about the only one!). Disappointing we let the lead slip but sounded like we were very unlucky in front of goal and their keeper had a cracker. We certainly missed sterling and Willis today plus Thomas having a poor game I am suprised we called out that many chances.

    Incredibly frustrating result.

    MR’s obsession with CC is clouding his judgement. The last two games he has set us up to win and it’s resulted in good football, then today as soon as we take advantage of that he immediately changes tactics.

    By no means do I want him gone, but surely based on both the second half of last season and snippets this season, he must see that an attacking strategy is the best way forward. Everyone has their own view, but for me, our squad is more than good enough to compete. If we don’t, then we have to blame the tactics and the elongated recruitment of a sub standard striker.

    I was replying to posters who said that they thought promotion was on the cards this year and now they feel it’s not.

    It was on cards. It still is on cards mathematically

    Point is it SHOULD be on cards. We let ourselves down with dumbest things that are kinda inexcusable

    Promotion wasn’t on my cards at the start of the season before a ball was kicked. Why would it have? We won promotion from League 2 from finishing 6th and we sold McNulty.

    After the 5 win run we were close to the playoffs but I knew we wouldn’t keep it up so no it wasn’t on the cards at all.

    Again incredibly disappointing and infuriating.

    Subs were again nonsensical and the latter two far too late and were once again like-for-like.

    We do really now need to consider that we just have a bunch of attackers who can't hit a barn door. It seems stupid to suggest we need a striker in this window given how many we've already signed but that seems to be the reality.

    And MR needs to get over this CC obsession - at the very least he needs to acknowledge there are games when he deserves to be substituted ahead of others. He risks unsettling 2 or 3 players in order to look after one.

    Why didn't we smash lameiras? They targeted our players.

    We let him run and do what he wanted.

    Spineless. Just go through him early on

    Going to someone 5 or 6 nil sometime soon as soon cannot believe the chances we are missing - The only issue is that it is consistency is the key and we ain't got it
