  1. Clarke has had 5 games and probably seen every player on the pitch. He now has to pick HIS strongest team. If Whitehead, Robinson, Cullen still get picked then i have no faith in him. He now has to pick a team and stick with it for the next 3 games. As for Manny, Monty, Gibbo, send them away till after Easter and forget anout them. Tell Pope put his arm in a sling and get his boots on.
  2. If this carries on it will be difficult to say it was right to get rid of Askey
  3. Problem is we need them fo the next 12 games or so
  4. Thats the problem I have said i think Conlon is the best footballer we have. He has nothing to beat though. Dont think he would get in any team of the top 7
  5. Rodney is 22 years old He had ten years at an academy... man city n sheff wed If he cannot do what a footballer has to do by now, he never will. Its great when he thunders one in, brilliant, but then five games where he offers nothing is not much good to us. Keep hearing he will learn and become a player worth lots of money to us. Sorry i just dont see it. Exciting at times yes but a footballer no. If this doesnt make me eat my words then nothing will. Go and score a worldy yo shut me up.
  6. You missed off Rodney from your list of poir forwards
  7. Best we can hope for is bottom 4 all lose. So far two losing
  8. Service. Thats what Guthrie and Rodney need too. Thats why they too look poor. We started with too many strikers for a ' one up top ' team and yes we keep changing them all too often but not one of them has scored goals inside the box consistently. Are they all at fault or as you say the service from three midfield men, two wide men and two full backs is and has been awful all season. By the way we dont keep swapping Rodney and he is not scoring goals either. Pope is no worse than any of them. He will miss chances but he will also score and play with far more passion than the others.
  9. They dont have to sneak. They are a good team and will finish in the top three.
  10. Again i have to ask, if they arent great, neither are FGR to many, then what does that make us. They are going to finish 30 + points above us and possible achieve promotion. we will be happy to stave off relegation. This season they are miles better than us. Cannot just look at 90 minutes.
  11. Stop having a go then - 2 points from 9 You appear not to know what you are on about or are you trying to cover yourself and keep people happy.
  12. Disagree. Our whole squad lacks enough creativity and goals to secure a top half finish. This season has shown up problems / issues which leave us fighting survival. We have a poor squad
  13. We lost , again. We know we have players missing. Manny, Amoo question why we even consider them as being fit anyway. Joyce has played almost all season. Gibbons, hope we are not rushing him back too soon. Thought Mills did not let us down today. Worral yes, major loss, even though i criticise him for his lack of goals. Pope, you have to admit that most fans have not been calling for him much this season. I said earlier, our best hope of survival is to have Gibbons, Montano fully fit, Joyce and Worrall back to fitness and a half fit Pope is best we can hope for. All playing regularly and
  14. 21 points and if they are not a good team then, honestly, what are we.
  15. Mills didnt do a lot wrong. He is a full back and offers nothing else
  16. Agree with most of above. Wether its a wonder goal, penalty or own goal it doesnt matter. Top teams score these late quality goals. Bottom teams miss sitters. It happens every year. Guthrie is still the best we have to lead the frontline. Maybe not good enough but the best we have. Rodney better learn fast. Sick and tired of hearing what a world beater he may become. At the moment he doesnt even look a footballer. Still the best we have at the moment. Yes the pitch is awful and it is a leveller. Hard work comes first but you still have to try and create and we dont have pla
  17. I wouldnt be surprised to see this from Cambridge most games, certainly away. First thing you do is keep the home team quiet. When you do get on top then your midfield players will always get up to support the front man. Once they get in front then maybe the goals follow. You are top after 30 games for a reason
  18. We were poor. Yes better than Tuesday and had the ball but there was no creativity. How can you score goals without. Conlon decent Monty, still the best wide player we have, when he wants to do it. He can hold the ball and wait for someone to move for him. He can attack a defence. He can create some chances. Burgess - Poor Taylor not much better. 3 yr contract maybe but he will not be in the starting 11 soon
  19. MUST ADD Montano and even Pope. Would also like to add Manny but whats the point ! Without these players being involved for ten games or more we will struggle to survive. Have said for two years - No creativity and No goals in our whole squad. Not enough for play offs any way and possibly not enough for survival.
  20. Positive substitutions ???? Robinson and Cullen WOW Might as well leave it as it was. Guthrie and Rodney dont look like scoring but they look more like footballers than the subs
  21. Glad you said that. I am thinking we need four more wins and with 9 to go, we are doomed
  22. You did watch the game. Southend were shocking AND it was a game where the ball dropped for us far more than in any game recently. We had the run of the ball and took our chances. In games when we have struggled the ball never seems to drop for us. We need our fair share of luck. Another bearing on safety or not is in our own hands. We have to keep our players fit and on the pitch. How do you do that with Manny. Joyce andd Worrall could both be a doubt. Monty and Gibbo just have to stay fit. Cullen has played 25 mins so he is due another injury i suppose. Not sure how we address
  23. GET RID when he can. End of season. We have some poor players and i am convinced the majority will go. Not too many showing positives signs to D C at the moment
