It doesn't take the brains of Stephen Hawkins to see where our problems lie...we simply have no attack...no chance of taking a team apart and scoring 3 or 4 goals...
Only so many times can I listen to the same excuse week in week out, the "we need to be more ruthless in front of goal and take our chances"...
I'm afraid what we need is a front line who can actually hit the back of the onion bag consistently....and I hate to say this, a manager who can set a team up to attack ..
I believe we have the personnel but at the moment not the correct game plan...
I for 1 am starting to get very worried that the games we win are more from luck than anything else and what we saw today is more like what we can expect on a regular basis ...
Got to keep the faith but the man setting the team up needs to start changing his approach and change it quickly to my mind

Y'see, I don't believe we do have the personnel, and I don't believe our budget gives us a chance to acquire them. We've got two or three good players and a bunch of very average ones, most of whom are evidently below the average for the league. Said it at the start of the season, have been repeating it regularly and obvious again today. Too many players who have shown their relative calibre play week after week and nobody is learning the lessons. I repeat a sentiment that caused pants wetting a week ago - take a look at the November fixtures and try to find where we will acquire a handful of points, if any.

This punchless squad is relegation battle fodder - sadly the predictable norm since we crawled back into the league.
Sick of it.

Fortunately, I am on bonfire duty on Tuesday evening so I'm hunting down an extra long HDMI cable so I can do the IFollow thing on the TV. For me, that is rocket science.

At last, something to relieve the angst. Pedants, nothing to see here.

Why are you having the bonfire on 6th November?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

But would he have been any good at getting a Grimsby Town attack scoring goals?

Was totally depressed by the game yesterday, but this thread has put a smile on my face! Classic.

Do you think this Hawkins bloke was at Cambridge like Stephen Hawking? Not yesterday you understand.........

You’re excused the performance of traditional bonfire rituals on the correct night. Just curious/nosey.

Nah, I'm pretty sure he wasn't blind !!


I’ve just split up with my Irish girlfriend due to her broad accent and me getting a new car.

It all went wrong when she asked me to take her in the Yarris !!!
