In times like this I’ll always try to see the best but my god we are excrement.

Thankfully I feel Holloway knows that, but then again how on earth do you go from Benson to Taylor? One will be playing at Mollenux every season and the other will be lucky to be working in the club shop.

We just look absolutely awful, no end product and woeful at the back.

I’ve bought the last 2 on iFollow and I fear one more will conclude in the neighbours questioning my girlfriends welfare.

So much time to sort it, but so so far to go.

I’m not having that to be honest you can’t blame any of the young kids and singling out someone who prepared to move away from his home and club to try and be the best he can makes no sense.

These lads where never meant to be thrown in on mass and can’t be blamed for getting stuff wrong.

Aim criticism at the manager (whoever he may be) as he is the one who’s ultimately accountable.

Also I seem to remember that it took Benson a good few games to make strides.

Did not see that second half coming at half time. While we were far from amazing in the first half we did hit the bar, miss a one on one, see their keeper make a brilliant save to deny a Green header and see an effort cleared off the line.

If any of those go in I think we would have seen a different second half. While clutching at straws somewhat at least we created the chances in the first half to suggest there is some hope.

Not that this makes up in any way for the second half shambles. Still I would be very surprised if it got any worse than that second half under Holloway.

Understandable - Salford were the one team he managed to win a game against.

I know we lost 4-0 but for me they were not 4 goals better than us. Many will disagree but the second penalty changes the game. Whilist not exactly free flowing attacking football we were the better team at that point. Salford are a horrible team with a horrible manager and horrible owners. But because of that they will go up. It's not a coincidence that they get lots of penalties and decisions. Yes the 1st and 3rd ones today were clear,  but the 2nd was never a penalty.

I actually thought there were positives and with Hendrie back and Hanson/ another experianced goalscorer we will look a lot better. Idehen a great prospect but maybe not the right time now for him. Preston was good but Clifton my man of match. As someone else said everything good came through him today. That was the sort of performance we want from him and he showed he is easily capable. Has to play for me and in my opinion we have to go with strongest 11 for all league games now. Give the best 11 time to get to know each other.

Quoted from Hagrid
Can we End it now? That was painful, Taylor & Tilly were awful, Green so isolated. Lightweight all over the park, bullied by Salford who bullied the ref. 2nd pen a terrible decision but we were not getting back into it. Where is Scannell. Where is Jackson. where is Sisay? Why are we so un prepared. Its not good enough. And its not an excuse we should be using “ oh we arent fit yet”. We’re paying money for this and its not on. I hate salford and how they are but they desevred 3 points. 4-0 at home 2nd game of the season.

Do we assume the issue with Sisay is his international clearance?  How long before we find out he has left the club?

After all the hype when Holloway took over, nothing changes, the joys of being a Town fan eh.

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

My memory isn't all it could be nowadays...but when have Town ever started a season well?

Under Lennie Lawrence in the Championship, and...??

44 games to go, and still plenty of undrunk beer in the world...so too early to start panicking imo.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Woken up feeling still pretty depressive about yesterday, which is never a good thing as football is ruling your life too much. Just typical town isnt it, always behind. To lose 4-0 at home it just isnt on. The board need to back him because we are woefully under prepared with little or no squad depth.
