Thought I'd start this off tonight .
1- wrong team selection
2- round pegs in square holes.
3- tinkered with a team after Exeter that didn't need to be touched
4- MJ trying too hard and being too clever when he didn't have to be.
5- proves what the majority of us have thought, MJ is a streaky manager.
6- Scunny are closing in on us if we don't find that winning feeling again soon...
Apart from all that, we did okay🤔🤔....

This is the key thing for me. Rather than trying to second guess what the opponents are going to do (which goes disastrously wrong if he doesn't guess right), we should be putting out our best team, with players playing in their best positions.

I don't have a problem with a manager adjusting a team to exploit the weaknesses an opposition may have (or counteract their strengths) within an overall plan of how we play.  The issue this season seems to be a tendency to pick the wrong strategy at kick-off and it's only later adjustments that see us get a foothold in a match or begin to dominate.  I think our tendency to concede the first goal(s) shows this.

Just think if we started to get it right from kick-off more often!  Anyway, not sure I can say too much on today, I was relying on John Tondeur for information - respect to those who did make it.  Safe journeys back.

As happened with the Exeter manager a fortnight ago? I understand our selection took him totally by surprise

The final 20 minutes when we showed our good side shouldn't mask a bloody awful first hour or so,which was a throw back to the bad old days.lackadaisical, ponderous ,lack of pace, width and creativity we made the worst team in the league look good.gave Stevenage far too much time on the ball. Cuthbert was their mot m ,bossing hansen all game. Green wasn't very good and cook was as anonymous as usual. Midfield lacked creativity, with Robson being disappointing imho. Nobody had a good game apart from the subs who did show some pace and desire.Great goal by Akheem.will be interested to hear what Jolley has to say, but for me it was dire. Just hope he gives the Exeter line up another go ,coz Hansen and green wasn't in the least bit effective today

For me it’s just the crushing f@cking inevitability of the defeat. You look at that game pre kick off and you know it’ll be typical Town - to not really show up and give a team who haven’t won all season their first three points. Every time you get sucked in by the hope that we’ve learned things and moved on, and might be able to challenge for the play offs, good old Town smack you in the face with a same old same old t*rd result that you just knew was coming. Well done Manager and players. Top stuff.

We went to watch 11 jokers today


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.

For me it was the lack of any sense of urgency. Even with those players and tactics we could have won if there’d been an offensive spirit which wasn’t there until Rose scored.
