Ive got dippy on my ignore list and thats where the idiot is staying however due to the fact you can see what he's spewing when posters reply to him,and unfortunately Ive picked up on his recent attention seeking comments, remember his attacks on Askey calling him Arthur,not from a friendly point of view but because he thought it was funny to lampoon him,who needs supporters like him,if indeed he is a supporter.

It wouldn't surprise me if he was a Closet Stokie or Railway Child - I also have him on the ignore button but it is unfortunate that people who think they can convert him into a normal being are directly quoting him. Mind you, you've got to admit he is consistent - consistently wrong,  but never the less consistent.   If he had any friends they may want to suggest counseling as a substitute for buying him toys for Christmas.

Would anyone with a brain put Lloyd in the squad when Conlon and Atkinson were fit

Yes, for cover at left back.

Any news on Wozza’s injury?

Ongoing hip problem he's had for a couple of years. Has an injection pre-season every year. Was questionable pre-game and Askey didn't know how long he'd last today.

Puts his performances into perspective. An absolutely superb player. I'd say he needs some time off to sort his hip but he's simply that important to us we can't afford to lose him. Our best player by a good distance (imo) and one of the best wingers in the League. Could comfortably play for a decent League 1 side.

Very lucky to have him.

Today was the first game I’ve been to at VP under the floodlights for a good while. They’re a huge improvement on last season. 

Yes just need Manorshop to install them on the Railway stand and you will need sun glasses to watch the game.

He needs to be able to tackle to play left back.

Unless it’s left back in the dressing room.

I have to be mindful to give him a chance because I have have only seen him play once this season.

He's been alright Warren when called on. No world beater, but okay. Not deserving of a hate campaign.

The EFL Table for the last six games in L2 makes interesting reading, showing us in sixth place:

What surprised me though was that our next opponents, Scunthorpe, are above us in fourth place, so it will be another challenging away fixture.

The first half tackle that wasn’t given which was potentially a red really grated mainly for one reason... an almost identical tackle happened in the same fixture last season... and cost us the game as Miller was sent off for it!

Don't think it's any coincidence that our form has really picked up since Crooks has been out of the side. Nothing against the lad, he works hard and we can all appreciate a tryer. But he offers nothing going forward, and wingers often have a field day against him. I'd now say that Cristiano Monatno is one of our most important players such as what he offers us in that position.

Crooks is improving with the ball from fullback. But Montano obviously offers more going forward. However, I have him down as at fault on the first goal. He seemed to be trying to start as an attacking fullback when he should have seen the space he left behind himself. He was left standing in no mans land. After that he did well. He also seems to have tempered his desire to play too many ambitious passes. Growing in to the role and is more tough than I thought.

Monty, for all his faults, is way better than Crookes. He was off his game today though. That's Monty for you. Love him. x

Jake Taylor and Scott Burgess have been excellent since they both regularly got to start, they were both superb particularly for the first ca 35 mins today. Taylor's shot that hit the post had me out of my seat and the two pieces of skill in the 2nd half around Carlisle's box were excellent. Because of the form of these two guys we haven't missed Oyeleke at all.

I believe Taylor's loan period ends in Jan, I hope we can keep him 'til the end of the season, he's destined to play most of his career in the top two leagues IMHO.

Say what you want about Monty... we are unbeaten since he took over at left back, having conceded 1 league goal (I think) since he has been in the back 4.

Is he a perfect left back, no... but then again he is a league 2 player... people were sl*gging off Gibbo a month ago saying how poor he was. Now he is the best thing since sliced bread.

Benno and Amoo seem to be creeping into the firing line because despite running his knackers off Benno doesn’t score every game. And despite having fullbacks on toast Amoo tires on 60mins.

These mini vendettas really are a bit silly.

There are still one or two shaded areas that need a bit of extra ‘filling-in’ (look at the shadow of the Bycars roof when Worrall runs away after scoring), but considering the state that Sexman had allowed the floodlights to get into, it’s a massive improvement.

Taylor and Burgess?  Aren’t they Askey signings?  That can’t be right can it?  And that Cullen bloke - wasn’t he an Askey signing?  And Amoo?

Some really interesting discussions on the return journey with Class Personified!
Player ratings were so difficult because of the recognition of the team ethos that is developing.
All playing well because of the presence and contributions of their team mates.
Smith is doing well because of Legge, Joyce because of Taylor, Burgess, Gibbons and Monty.
Worrall quieter in the first half because Monty was recovering from his error.
There were lovely triangles all over the pitch of players working together.
Burgess and Taylor are skilful, comfortable on the ball, very mobile.
Joyce is available and knits it all together.
Bennett wears them down. Pope scares them. Cullen gets space and scores.
Monty provides balance and is much better than Crookes.
Gibbons was my mom. He got forward throughout in spite of being up against two very difficult wingers.
