Newton: 0%
Bencherif: 7.14%
Power: 7.14%
Mendy: 0%

Says it all in a way, were we that bad?

He's a good shot stopper but terrible on crosses. But we wouldn't know as we didn't put any crosses in.

I think we just need to accept that at all levels, teams just have a bad day, or are rubbish.  Sunday was one of those days.  The current squad didn't get us relegated out of the league or mismanage the club; they're a decent bunch of blokes, probably not earning as much as, or much more than, a fair few of the fans watching them.  They will know they messed up and I'm sure will be desperate to put it right tomorrow.   Fourth in the league at the half-way point with a game in hand and rivals still to play is not a bad position.

They won't know that they've messed up if Hurst tells them they played well.

That's assuming, davmariner, that what PH tells the players is the same as what he tells us.  I'm not convinced any manager tells the fans and media the same things he tells the team.

Not necessarily, it's one thing not criticising the players to the fans and looking for positives which is fair enough, but another actively praising their performance when it wasn't good at all really.

Nor was it as bad as everyone has made out! The Lincoln mom poll is a good indicator there. Yes, we were second to most second balls in midfield but we caused them plenty of problems. On another day, we'd have scored 3 and this embarrassing tirade would not have occurred. Judge the team on our season not on a derby match which are generally unreliable indicators of form.

We've not beaten Lincoln with any conviction since Hearn became crocked. Now we lose to them with Mendy in their side.

We beat them 4-1 without Hearn

Hearn always ran them ragged though. It was a mental advantage over them when they saw his name in the team. Now they've clicked that a bit of huff and puff will beat us, and that Diz is fading and his goals aren't enough anymore.
