I just don't understand what was going through Eastwood's head? Was he worried about getting hurt? If so then you may as well give up as a goalkeeper. Cos if there is any contact whatsoever, the ref is giving us a free kick. The Swindon player knew that and half pulled out of it anyway. So literally all Eastwood had to do was get some kind of contact on the ball (let alone catching it) and there's no way it can be a goal. So to make that much of a hash of it is actually quite impressive.

Sykes, Eastwood and Agyei all need to go in January.

Sykes was culpable for that second goal and was so so poor. Agyei hasn't improved at all since signing. Eastwood - words fail me.

How can we lose to the worst Swindon side in years after they have 2 injuries in the first half and playing a CB up front? How can the entire fan base be calling for Mousinho and Forde to come on and KR makes the subs he does? Serious f*cking inquisition needed, we just rolled over the second half and we could all see it coming.

AND, after all that, what happened to the officials second half?! Consistent and relatively decent first half and the ref got caught up in the derby aspect of it all throwing yellow cards left right and centre for nothing.

Livid isnt the word.
Agyei is a striker. The only time he should have been on the pitch is on about 80 mins as a sub for a tiring Taylor.

Agyei had just played well against Portsmouth as a striker. It’s terrible management to suddenly put him back on the wing again.

Karl, bit of advice mate, if you’re 1-0 up in the second half against a team who are pushing players forwards, put your pacy STRIKER on up front to run in behind. If you leave your tiring striker on you will have no outlet up front as he won’t run in and won’t close down.

I thought we were great for 55 minutes, really bright and energetic. Taking off McGuane was an odd one as he was playing really well, Henry too was linking well. Obita wasn’t at his most effective but, similar to how Garbutt often was, he gave us a balanced look.

Eastwood messed up massively but I still think he has the edge over Stevens - for now.

Completely agree with the first part of that but Eastwood? His confidence has been shot since the play off semis and it seeps into the back line. Too many costly mistakes and he has bottled it again in the biggest match since the play off final.

That second half was just not good enough. Dreadful, dreadful football that showed us time wasting at home from the 70th minute.
Swindown were absolutely shite.
Quite how we managed to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory is only explainable by Robinson himself.
The worst second half performance yet!

This is part of the problem - if KR wont play him as a striker, why is he at the club? He was a solid number 9 on Tuesday but as a winger there's no point in having him here.

I can’t help but feel that Sykes has become a bit of a nothing player. He’s not pushed on. Not seen him in a while I admit but he’s just so weak on the ball. Very pretty to watch, possibly our most technical player, but theres rarely real penetration or incisiveness, and nor is there backbone. He’s one of those players who you always anticipate might do something special but it’s normally out on the sideline in a non threatening area.

Sykes is a playground footballer.

The goalie cost us the game, no more excuses for the useless c**t, he is absolutely shot.
The main reasons we lost are.
Taylor missing a sitter. He should have scored that with his eyes closed. A very poor effort.
Subs were poor and not suited to how the game was going. KR at fault for that.
Eastwoods blunder, one of many. A Sunday league keeper could have done better.
It looked like Swindon wanted it more in the last 20 and thats not acceptable.
Sheridan fired them up and made them think they could win.
Some of our players are just not good enough.
