Robbo and Eastwood Out now!!

This was Swindon fgs. A L2 team at best. Not happy. We let a CB with PTSD score and get an assist against us! They have a keeper with hands made of wool. We made them look like Fleetwood Town. When will oure owners wake up and get rid of Robinsonn!!!

Are there any positives we can take from today? I thought Sam Long was pretty good and the team were largely assured in the first period; Kelly was excellent.
Still many more games to go and this side isn't absolutely hapless - I think it's just become clear that we have an incredible propensity to throw games away.
Now up to KR and the staff to absolutely hammer the players this week.

They're not entirely hapless, there's certainly some quality there.

They are utterly lacking when it comes to B*****s and spine however, and that worries me.

The only possible positive from this is that KR might finally realise that "more of the same" is going to get us nowhere and he needs to rethink his ideas.

The way we fell apart in the second period was definitely worrying. Who are the leaders? Nobody took a stand. That's possibly the most concerning issue - I don't know how we get leadership on the pitch without playing Mous until his body self-destructs.

Longy played with his heart on his sleeve. Good or bad the lad gives what he can. He was visibly livid towards the end of the game. The booking was his reward.

the problem is they can let the most s**t goals ever in at any moment,meaning no game is ever safe.

Sam Long does what Sam Long normally does. Does a few things defensively really well but lacks so much quality and composure with the ball at his feet, resulting in him giving the ball away.

Our attackers are pretty good at doing that too, to be fair, but without the defensive bit!

....apart from putting the ball on a plate for Matty Taylor of course. Let's not forget that. Much as we might want to.
Yes fine, one example. I think he has potential and like him but he is normally lacks a lot of composure and today there were a couple of classic examples of it.

That was unbelievable wasn't it? At ht I was feeling quietly confident. I guess the lesson for KR is that if you let the team drink more than four cans of Stella during the break then for God's sake go a bit easy on the weed.

I don’t mean to keep slagging the manager off but im starting to get sick of the sound of his voice and his excuses. Says the players don’t have enough passion but isn’t he the one who brought them in? He’s been here long enough now to get the players he wants. If they players aren’t passionate enough, good enough etc then why did he bring them in? As a minimum he has to admit he recruited badly if he can’t take any other blame.
