Vernon's had more decent perform*ances than bad, he's a good support striker, if he's somehow become No 1 striker and *///////////expected to score goals week in week out then I expect it's news to him. Hooper will only ever be 'a bit better than we expected, which was rubbish' and I only hope that Matt steps forward and grabs his chance.
So I feel for Vernon, asked to play his support striker role, supporting a so-far invisible somewhat lethargic strike force.

For me, Vernon is not the problem, not even in the top 10 problems currently facing this haphazard lineup.

I did think first penalty was harsh and for the first 10 minutes of 2nd half had 3 good chances - Berrett from quick thinking free kick, vernon who should have headed rather than bring down and dembele after a great run into the box.

Once we missed all three of them - it was obvious we'd missed our opportunity having been on the front foot

Having just watched the highlights in even more drunk off about our really weak defending this season.

It's unacceptable and needs sorting.

Ah! So i'm only pretending to know anything about football, thinking Vernon is a clever player. If only i had your football knowledge.


Don't go off on one! Perhaps I should have worded it better - I don't agree that he is a clever player is probably better. It is all about opinions, as ever.

So what to make of that then? I am going to post without reading anything above just to see if I saw it the same way as anyone else.

First half  I actually thought that it was pretty even between 2 average sides, the only difference was the ref who from early doors got sucked into their policy of hitting the deck upon any contact from a Town player which resulted in a soft penalty and a lead for the hosts. Neither side could work out if they where going to win the game with the ball on the ground or in the air which resulted in a poor quality 45.

In the second half our week in week out frailties really told as we could not retain possession, failed to take responsibility at the back, made poor decisions with the ball at our feet and after the 2nd lacked any form of application and leadership which led to a soft 3rd and another soft penalty.

Our poor passing & movement off the ball & inability to gain and retain possession in the middle of the pitch coupled with poor decision making is resulting in a lack of quality that means in front of goal in reality we are toothless up front.

The thing that concerns me most is that this group look like they have no spine from front to back, we have a keeper who is capable of brilliance & stupidity within the same minute, no established CB partnership, a mid field that cannot influence a game for more than a minute or two at a time and still no credible goal scorer.

Some of our predicament is no doubt down to the manager but today the players once again need to share some accountability too. Everyone involved in the playing side of GTFC needs to up their game now, and quickly as this crop look like they do not have the stomach for a relegation fight.

Overall, fans made the effort and turned up its a real shame the players chose not to.

With regard to the first penalty Mills put in a foot and missed the ball and looks to catch their player, he made no complaint to the ref so I assume it was a penalty or he didn't give a toss that it was one.
