Cook so unlucky…way it’s going he won’t be here next season. Promotion favourite from league 1 will take him.


#162

How exciting another relegation battle in League One under Jeff Bonser and his merry band of yes men.

Utter ■■■■


#163

Ferrier booked…


#164

Absolutely


#165

Questions really need to be asked now. People keep saying that it’s happening because Devlin,leahy and Guthrie are no good but they were all in the team last year and we let nothing like this number of goals in. Only two things have changed - the players in front of them and the management team. The problem clearly must lie with one or both of them?


#166

If we can get a couple of defenders in to strengthen then I can’t see why we can’t do a Barnsley. Jarvis supplying Cook is an attacking powerforce.


#167

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd its 5


#168

Posh defence even worse, losing 5-0 to Boro.

Problem with 3rd round day nowadays is there just dosen’t seem that many shocks anymore…unless the favourite plays a virtual reserve team e.g. Cardiff.

5-2…


#169

Bagsy “naive” and “playing for their futures” in post match managerial bingo.


#170

Agree - they aren’t great players and both Devlin and Leahy were bought as wing backs you would think , not conventional full backs … BUT the organisation needs to held to account …


#171

Far too low in the table imo. Just get to 50 points as soon as possible so same as most seasons.


#172

The defence is gash - they’ve had enough chances. Conceding 5 goals in 40 minutes is absolute boll ux. Get rid of Ismail, Guthrie, Martin and Morris and get some quality in for once.


#173

Shambolic.

■■■■ the lot off and start again - get a proper holding midfielder too.

Leahy, Devlin, Guthrie and Martin are ■■■■■■■ ■■■■■.


#174

Equivalent fixture during O’Connor’s time -

Top class defending there eh? Not!


#175

Homework for El nombre and co.

Go and look how many goals were from crosses.

Utter bilge.


#176

And yet, as I said, 3 of those were in defence last year when we let far fewer goals in. So the answer would seem to lie elsewhere.


#177

Forget the 4th round, we’re going down unless this defence is sorted out. Absolutely atrocious defending again.


#178

Yeah. I wish our centre halves dealt with balls coming into the box better too.


#179

We can all find a heavy Walsall defeat examples for any of our past defenders, what does that really prove? Do you want me to find an example of a heavy defeat with Butler involved?


#180

Hence my tentative criticism of Deano. We’re getting worse at the back. As it stands we need to score 3 a game to stand a chance of a draw.
