Just one thing I want to hear for Mr Fenty; that Slade has 2 months to turn this around, get us looking like a top 10 team at the very least or he is GONE.
If it's a good enough rule for Bignot, it's good enough for Slade.


The official line with Bignot was that JF had "lost faith in him".

How much faith has he in Slade and Wilko right now?

An afternoon of utter gash.

They had tactics and we didn't.

They had a semblance of a team and we had 11 blokes who all wear the same shirt.

After last week I allowed myself to think that we were starting to "form" ourselves into something greater than the whole.

This week was just a collection of holes.

Dixon and Mills were given the runaround and constantly being pulled out of position. Dixon in particular looks very vulnerable.

Hooper ( who I actually thought was doing ok in the games I've seen him) just thought he done enough by getting on the coach. Didn't even look arsed in the warm up.

Rose (another I thought showed promise) was as invisible as two invisible James Berret's today. How he had the nerve to try and persuade Jones he should take the pen is beyond me!

Berret (who I don't think is much cop) tried his best and at least made some passes to his colleagues.

Vernon. Stupid decisions from someone who I thought was an intelligent player (if you give him the ball below his chin). The one decent cross we put it all afternoon, just crying out for him to head back across the keeper and he tries to bring it down and loses it. Clear chance of a shot from 10 yards out and he passes it and we lose it.

Giving away needless free kicks around the box.
Unable to defend set pieces.
Zero fvucking leadership evident from anyone, on or off the pitch.
Nothing that looks like team spirit.

There is such a lack of discipline in that squad I do wonder what Sladess does with them all week.
Yes Fenty is responsible for hiring him and for the budget, but shite on a bike you'd think there would be some semblance of teamwork.

It is uttertly irrelevant whether you've managed and/or played five gadzillion games at a higher level. You ain't at that fvckin level now and what you've done before means sod all

Seeing as how this started as a Just Back thread...
First half pretty even on the balance of play. Town undone by a pretty debatable penalty. The half did provide a clue though in that for all our quite clever football in the middle of the park we are miles away from where we need to be in the fabled "final third". We just do not create enough in the opponents box. Vernon tried but Hooper and he seemed to be miles apart. Last week Hooper showed he is a different player with the ball at his feet. I counted at least four wellies down the line to him after he'd made good space at head height or above. Dembele once again tried to provide a spark having one effort that looked goalbound blocked but simply not enough. For all his brilliant play when on the ball he doesn't get into the danger area often enough. With a ref like today's the chances of winning a penalty at least must have been a probability.
Second half Town started the better but and this is a terrible thing to say really with over 30 minutes of the second half to go their second goal killed any realistic possibility of getting something from the game. It looked incredibly poor defensively with some doubt about whether it was a simple free header or even a knee. Hooper was shown some mercy being replaced by Jones but it made no difference even though it appeared a straight swop. Mills went off with what looked like a pulled thigh muscle being replaced by Davies. The lad from Norwich came on for Dembele and I think won the equally debateable penalty that Jones smacked under the keeper. Town's day was summed up when Rose smashed a late shot into literally Row Z of the away end. Lots of disgruntled Town fans with loud booing during and after the game. Slade's ability to divide the fanbase remains undiminished.
Dembele the best player on the park first half. No-one really stepped up second half. Very poor day at the office.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

How about Jayesimi's introduction Barra? He won the penalty I believe...any crumb of comfort in his display?

He is one and the same. I'll have worked out his name by March.

Hooper was garbage again, and when was the last time a new no.9 has been substituted just about every game.

I copy and paste it from the GET.
It seems odd that we have such a toothless forward line but Dembele and Jayesimi and Tombola, when he's on his game, out wide and capable of doing real damage.
It's almost like a classic Slade Town team managed by a fading Slade who's forgotten to sign Reddy.
