    Of those, at the Ricoh, only Pompey were better than us (and I felt they always had another gear) and then we could have nicked a point with better finishing late on.

    Been different class to Burge - reliable and unflappable.

    Definitely a new keeper for next season. Let Burge go as he clearly thinks he’s better than he is and cast your mind back to the Burge and RCC season where they both weren’t good enough and cost us goals with stupid decisions

    How much do you reckon was down to the keeper? Much more comfortable when we were leading

    When they were firing those long balls and he was catching them or punching

    Nor me, he was very good last season too. His positional sense and ability to sense where the ball might land is great

    Was at the game , thought we played pretty well throughout most of it , a little slow getting forward at times but I can’t really pick out any poor performances today .
    Nice 3 points


    Can we keep the keeper please ?

    Good to get the three points. Kelly is our best player, need to keep him fit. 3 more points away from the drop, focus on getting our status in this league secured and then see where we go from there.

    Our record up there has been so horrific for what seems like forever, so good to get a win. A bit of luck in front of goal is always welcome, as long as it goes in I don't care how it goes in. Stockdale sounded very composed, very confident and commanding in his area, which we've not had for too long. Shame its only a 7 day loan. Still need to take more of the chances we make, at times Eakin sounded on a loop of "shoots.... Wide" .

    It’s nice to actually watch a game and feel completely confident our keeper will make the correct decision almost every single time .

    Haven’t felt that comfortable with a keeper since Westwood

    Typical 'fan' writing someone off before he even starts.

    I watch them play before realising players are not good enough so not ironic. Your next point?

    You see the thing is, Stockdale will probably be back at Birmingham next week against Walsall,while Burge will start no doubt between the sticks.

    To be honest, i never mentioned Burge or even slated him..
