By all accounts pollock was shattered after 70 mins so would imagine we’ll see waterfall back in.


He was lucky not to be seriously injured when he got poleaxed, seemed to be carrying a knock after that tbf

A bit of physicality in midfield is certainly one thing we have lost since Robson left he was an athletic six-footer who really began to get stuck in and make a difference the midfield area during his last few weeks at the club. With the best will in the world, Hessenthaler, Clifton and Whitehouse aren't equipped to put themselves about in the same way, not that any of them are lacking in effort.

Didn't go today but it sounds as though we are getting punished when we make even relatively minor mistakes. On another day, we might have got away with one or two of them. With a more expansive style of play, we're going to make more errors. We just need to make sure we bag enough goals to make up for some of these and also, if possible, tighten up a bit more at the back as well.

Just watched the highlights, Pollock needs to get a bit more streetwise for me, he's got a massive future there's no doubting that but he looked leggy and their lad left him for dead.
And I'm not sure putting Clifton in front of the back 4 works either, he's not as composed on the ball das Hessenthailer and we do need a midfielder who can control the game better.
All in all we appear to be getting forward quicker and at least taking shots now, where as under Jolley all the players seemed scared to take a pot shot and we tried to walk it into the net.
If you watch Glennon at full-time his heads in hands, definitely can see this team want to win and play for the gaffer.
On to Tuesday and would love to see a "front foot" approach and some goals...

Yep pollock has to be more streetwise for the 2nd. Take the yellow bring him down. But he’s 18 years old he will make mistakes.

I suspect what u say about Hess no longer being in front of the back 4 and us getting the ball forward quicker are related to be honest so it's swings and roundabouts. Getting the ball forward, and especially getting it forward quickly is not Hess's game.

Surprised to see the manager expressing his opinions on this forum 😄


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.
