If we can get Clifton Rose and Edwards fit for Saturday we might get a result at Stevenage ..

Some of the players are not of the required standard, and given what Ive seen, Im not sure what Holloway was thinking. Its as though clubs rang him up and offered him players, and he hasnt batted an eye-lid.

Of the others most are inconsistent, and that middle is as weak as urine.  We aint  going anywhere Im afraid, and a long hard season is only a handful of games in.

No need for any management changes, we have enough to survive, but if it hasnt improved 3 months into next season, then the game is up for Bingo Bob.

They call that backs to the wall, are there another 8 teams they've played worst than us?


You see what you want to see. First time they havent been able to have the lions share of possession as is there game. Pinned back (there words) and whilst we were poor in our final third we did control the majority of the game. Like i say  you see what you want to see.

Been said by others really. Looking solid enough defensively although we play ourselves into trouble at times for me. Also It's no use having the ball over the half way line and 'keeping possession' by passing back to the keeper via two or three town players for it then to be booted forward. In that case you may as well try something from the midfield point when it's an outfield player kicking the baĺl and he's closer to where he wants to pass it. Also less chance of a costly defensive clanger.

Taylor and morton are similar players, amd neither are as good as clifton, albeit perhaps tidier when passing it short. They are nowhere near as energetic or positive as him. So a midfield 2 of them is going to be not strong enough in getting po ssesion and nowhere near even close to creative enough. However they may be able to keep possession better in meaningless areas to inflate our possesion stats to no game effect.

Windsor has looked good, Tilley has mostly flattered to deceive not actually producing the goods despite odd flashes and nearly moments. Edwards looks pacey and skilful but raw and his decision making looks suspect but understandable as he is young. Hanson does look a reduced player but he is coming back from an awful long layoff. I don't think we are playing to his strengths tho of players running towards him for lay offs. Gomis hasn't caught the eye in his appearances. Gibson looks like he has some useful attributes but his decision making and technique don't look great for this level. We haven't seen Max Wright yet this season, hopefully he will continue his development that he has shown last season.

We didn't control anything in that game including the ball. They pressed us till they scored then sat back and left us to p 1ss about with the ball in our own half for 60 mins.

Saw enough in the Cheltenham and Orient games not to write off the season for some footy fix entertainment, albeit we won't be troubling the top seven. Recruitment and League Two learning curve this season for IH. A few key players back (Rose, Edwards, Williams, Scannell and Clifton), a more settled side with Windsor as the main striker not Hanson, a little bit of belief and confidence and we'll be ok.. Tough watch the past few games though..

Yes I am sure that was there intention. Could almost see Coopers instruction "Let them urine about with it". You almost make me miss "sonofs" match analysis!!

Just really naive in the opposition half, and it’s not just this season we’ve lacked the ‘professionalism’ of other clubs.

Lost count of how many attacks died after we committed daft fouls on full-backs facing their own goal. People can complain about weak refs, the oppo falling over or timewasting as much as they like - and they seem to every week - but I can’t remember the last time I saw a town team slow the game down to the pace we want to play at, or be a bit cute and take the sting out of the opposition.

Waterfall needs to be captain on Sat.
