    Jones does his best to win heavy touch competition and kills and pressure we had.

    But Nick it wasn't long ago you couldn't say anything positive about Thomas. I do agree though we need more aggression other than from Doyle.

    That's the problem, I don't think Robins is brave enough.

    It does disappoint me that robins does prefer the defensive option. I felt last season we were too conservative till the last half dozen games or so and the same this year. Yet we are at our best playing fast, open, one touch attacking football.

    A shame. But we move on. Heavily rotated squad Tuesday and then hopefully keep good run going in the league next week.

    Not everybody, they put players on who made no difference. Were worse in fact

    Great cross by Chaplin. Fans behaviour on both sides absolutely shameful!!! Ours throwing bottles and theirs throwing the ball away from our players and one of their ball boys. The good game is lost

    (This is from my armchair) Very disappointed, think Robins deserves a bit of flack for his changes to the line-up and then his subs. Why would you change a back 4 (aside from Davies injury) that are 6 unbeaten?
    Where the fuck is Kelly?
    What did Chaplin do wrong?
    Chasing the game so take Hiwula and Thomas off?
    Why is Grimmer second choice behind a rookie playing out of position?

    Cov fans were an embarrassment today, invading the pitch after an equalizer in the second half acting as though we’ve just scored the winner in the cup final. Chucking bottles on the pitch, something else was thrown at a corner too and grazed a player.

    Yep you’re on one. They attacked it we didn’t.

    Game there to win at 2-2 and we let them back in. Such a shame. We are and were better than them and lost the game. Ref bottled a lot of decisions

    Yes but the piggy bank is empty, a cup run generates income and a feel good factor

    Easy to say but not too bothered, I want to win every game but of the two Walsall games if I could only win one it would be the league one. Followed game on CWR and again sounded we didn’t convert possession into goals and gave sloppy goals away, no Davies, no Brown, not blaming their replacements but looks to me we missed them. We’ll bounce back, beat Cheltenham Tuesday and set up another March to the arch.

    It was shit, that's why. It was far too easy to head away.

    I'm just talking as it was.

    Hiwula got a kick didn't he?

    Grimmer not quite yet match fit

    Kelly not in the squad. Has to be an injury surely.

    At 2-2 they stepped it up. Up till then they weren’t in the match but had got 2-0 up. They probably deserved the win for the last 20 mins

    Hope they catch the culprits and ban them.

    So, so dangerous.

    No you’re blinded by the result and disappointment which I understand.

    Stop being a dry weekend

    Edit: for the uninitiated this is a hark back to a bellends comment on here the other week. There is no place for the nonsense mentioned.

    No, it was awful. Even if we had won in the end.

    Same as our full backs, same as the subs.
