Sorry nowhere near good enough that. 
Unlucky from Wilson at the end fantastic effort. 2nd half was better, a bit of urgency but results like this do not equal promotion. 2 points from Rochdale and Harrogate is pretty dreadful.  

No idea why the tactic is always hoofball and why we have to play 3 centre backs all the time. 

If we had beaten these two we would be 4th. Just throwing it away. 

Im a bit disappointed we kept gibbo on at the end just to hobble about. 

Issue is our games in hand have now essentially gone. Exeter and Mansfield now have games in hand on us.  

We should be 4th now just wasting games. 

That first half was dreadful and whoever thinks that tactic is the way to go needs talking to. 

I know I’ll get stick here. But Scott brown is better than our 3 keepers. Holy is dreadful. 

Our manager ain’t there can u not remember that?

Too predictable and boring. We are badly missing Conlon in the middle. 

There’s just no spark in this team. Only Gibbons can create anything, literally. 

Not enjoyable to watch and we don’t look like a play off team at the minute.

Rubbish. We’re 6 off automatics with 2 games in hand. However, we will have to seriously improve.

3 wins since we came back from the covid break. Form hasn't been there and doesnt look like its coming back.

Never going to be when we set up negatively every game with a gameplan of hoofing it to players who can’t win headers and playing for set plays. Just get the <ovf censored> ball down. Stop wasting a player with 3 CBs and play some football. Just like we did earlier in the season. We saw Wilson’s quality at the end, give him the bloody ball on floor. So frustrating and boring to watch. I’m still struggling to see why Burgess was released. Need to change it but I’ve been saying this for ages and we seem to think the only way to play football is with 3 cbs.

Didn’t bother watching / listening tonight as frankly I decided tossing pancakes with the kids would be more entertaining. 

It sounds like a continuation from Saturday which was one of the worst footballing displays I’ve seen for some time. As others have said no creativity, no pace, no pattern of play. It is literally hit and run.

Got a strong opinion on tonight for somebody who hasn't watched it.

The 3 CBs isn’t the problem for me. We are fine in a 352 if we don’t play hoofball. Problem with this 343 is we are defensively weak in midfield, but also Pett and Garrity don’t create. And then we just hoof it over them. For me we have to have Martin back at centre half, Walker back sitting in midfield and two proper forwards playing in a front 2.

I’m sure most of the recent games we have been pissing about passing it around very slowly amongst ourselves tonight we went more direct

I think we’re all just extremely frustrated. This is slowly becoming a wasted season. 

It’s like death by a thousand cuts watching us play.

We’ve gone from being a really attractive team to watch play to…frankly tactics you see employed at the park on a Sunday.

Garrity is a 10. No point playing him as a sitting mid as he can't trap or pass a ball. He's a good player, just much further forward than he's being played now. His touches should basically be very near to the box or inside it, and nowhere else.

We looked miles better as soon as Hussey was subbed. He has brought something but I'm not sure it was what we needed. Hall continues to look the only January signing who has definitely 'improved' on where we were before.

We simply are not good enough ! disjointed display again crap defending ,crap in midfield , crap up front , hoof ball for most of the match crap tactics , we have one of the biggest budgets in the division , yet get out played by clubs who are getting gates of just over 2000 ..... we will be here again next season , which will be our longest period in the lowest division in the efl....yes we have had horrible bad luck with injuries , but the January Transfer window was poor beyond poor in recruitment , so another season fizzling out , and yet another season to look forward to playing second fiddle to <ovf censored> teams

I'm certainly not writing us off however we have got to improve the quality of football we are producing. In midfield we were too cheap today and like the goal we conceded at Tranmere we were overrun and faltered. 

Smith needs to bring a bit more quality to his game, his distribution was way short of adequate, forwards rely on good service and it rarely arrived tonight. I have no issues with Smith's commitment, he's probably the best spoiler at the club.

I think calling us rubbish isn't helpful but I understand people are frustrated.

One day in the future our season will be over but it isn't yet. If we win away on Saturday then who knows where we will end up.
