I enjoyed that as usual Paul.
You suggested that you couldn't recall any team being this bad since we came back up to L1?
Off the top of my head Southend and Chesterfield? I remember my mate and I seeing us hammer Chesterfield away a few seasons ago commenting that they would struggle to stay in L2 the following season...
I have heard a few people suggest that we just need 4 teams worse than us this season. I am by inclination a glass half full person and just think that we have been very under par so far and yet we are still not in the bottom 4. I assume we will lose Tuesday, but if Taylor and Henry start playing a bit more like yesterday together with Obida ( who I thought looked class at times) we really should push up to half way.
Cooper has personal / family issues and is back in NI for a few weeks apparently.Great to get a win and calm the nerves and worries a bit.
There is a good footballing team in there somewhere still, but..
Eastwood is not improving, two clangors yesterday, one you refer to and towards end he should have collected ball on 6 yard box instead our defender had to hook it out for corner in panic)
Clare and Maguane are a liability in defensive areas. Clare was standing still, 5 yards away, when the Wigan player crossed for their goal. But I can see Clare being a good player in opposition half.
We do not have a captain. Henry a great player, but captain material?
Atkinson will be a very good player but he is raw at this level, and needs time to develop a stronger understanding across back 4.
In effect we had Kelly instead of Brannagan. Not comparable in any aspect. Things will improve when Cam is back.
We lack a bit of pace which KR teams rely on. I liked the look of Obita, but not got great pace.
Where is Cooper?
Is KR missing the calming influence of Faz, does he have too many assistants on matchday - Short, Mous, Wayne Brown.
Yes agree these, Southend and Chesterfield were awful too. I'd forgotten and made no effort to remember.I'd chuck in Bolton as well last year.
But they have also beaten Portsmouth away too.We also shouldn't forget that Wigan also lost by the odd goal at home to ... Chorley. So while our performance was a definite improvement on Tuesday and there were some promising signs, we really shouldn't get carried away. Let's see where we are at this time next week.
