Vent your anger... personally, I'm of unhappy but not overjoyed, Taylor needs to think quicker and Macca can be forgiven his faux Pas as he got us the point today
Waterfall and Pollock are really getting an understanding of each other now but Preston keeps getting caught out
Still not sure what Green offers, Windsor struggled against a physical back line.
Hanson is Hanson, until the wide lads sort out the delivery into the box he's not going to get on the score sheet
On to Tuesday and see what that brings...UTM..

We shouldn’t underestimate how excrement Stevenage are. They haven’t scored for about 7 games and we made them look like Barca at times.

Tuesday is another day so let's forget today's poor showing and hope we see a vast improvement.

Max on the wing will be a better bet for Hanson to get a bit of service.

Ollie said 3games ago that Preston might need a rest  or he might break.

BUT

He has played him in every game so he might need to sit Barrow out and save his energy for another day.

The biggest concern aside from being utterly useless going forward is the fact Danny Preston has gone backwards at an alarming rate since the Orient game.

Only Pollock, Hendrie and in particular Waterfall have had consistently good seasons so far. Edwards is another and we badly miss him.

He's a young lad whose more or less played every game. It's a big step up for him so cut him some slack.

Good point on Preston. I thought the same. We look very vulnerable defensively from that side. Teams are noticeably targeting that area.

Bizarre again.

“I’d have taken that yesterday, we trained awfully,” Holloway said.

“I had to read the riot act for one or two of them, people feeling sorry for themselves and all that.

“It was always going to be tough, I thought they played very well. They’re improving, they’ve got Lennie Lawrence helping them out now, so if ever there was going to be a day for it to go even worse for us it would have been today.

“At the end of the day, I want us to have a bit more understanding and a bit more cohesion going forward, and at least I did a bit of work yesterday on the grass.

“I’m sure we’ll back in on Monday for Tuesday’s game, and people will get the understanding that we want.

Holloway added: “There was lots and lots of good stuff, and there was a fair bit of poor stuff, but I would like to suggest Stevenage deserved that and forced us into that.

“I thought Luke Waterfall and Mattie Pollock were excellent, Macca was back to himself, made a couple of great saves which we needed him to do, and at the end of the day some of our selection, some of our passing was what I would want.

“But at the top end, it’s like a bunch of strangers. I remember I added some chickens to my lot, and they all started pecking each other and nobody knew what was what. That’s what my forwards look like a bit, but we’ll get there.”













“It’s really difficult isn’t it when the Prime Minister says ‘I might not do that’, and he’s got a Grimsby hat on. Sort your life out Boris!

Agree with all of that apart from Davmariner’s point about Barca. Unless he meant the club in Cleethorpes.


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.

Aa far as i can see  we are reasonable at the back but from there up. apart from the odd player here and there and not consistant we just are not good enough.Too many are inexperianced or just not good enough end of . Its ok olley saying we will come good , yes if they are good enough , but we are well short of good players . its like saying i did not win the lotto this week but i will one day .. OR are we going to push the old .... in the next window . now we have ben told that for 20 yrs  or more

Dont think either full back had alot of help from the midfield or maybe even the shape /system in general , would still prefer a 4-4-2 as i think it gives the fullbacks support defensively and also a fixed point in front of them to play to or overlap , the system we have now seems to leave them either over exposed or on each others toes.
Also when the ball went to the strikers they were very much apart, Green especially on his own as the others drifted out wider.
