    Is there no way that this ramone character can engage in conversation on the matchday thread without the blatent nastiness such as the above, which is designed to start a controversy leading to someone else getting infraction points? Barely a post goes by without him bringing the thread to an abrupt halt with his tactics.

    My thoughts on the performance...:

    I thought our MoM was Matt Jay, hugely impressive. Liked his work-rate, the chances he had (and made the keeper work with a couple of them), the link-up with Stockley. I've no idea whatsoever why he was subbed for Harley, though, I thought that was a peculiar move from Tisdale, especially as Barnet were in the ascendency. Harley is not the guy to come on and link play with a big targetman. At that point, Stockley became isolated and we lost a lot of our attacking threat until McAlinden came on.

    I didn't think the defence looked particularly impressive for the most part - Moxey, with all his experience, made Campbell-Ryce look better than he should have done (I last saw Campbell-Ryce playing for Bristol City a few years back, and he was terrible - he was the stand-out on the pitch today, but I couldn't help thinking that was us making im look better than he is, giving him space and time to dictate Barnet's play). Seaborne was physical enough to handle Akinde, JMT's distribution wasn't as good as I've seen. The main problem was, I think, in midfield. Taylor drifted into the middle way too much, left Moxey exposed, and it ended up with Moxey defending against 2 (which, in part, leads back to my thoughts that Campbell-Ryce was allowed to look good as he was free from Taylor). Taylor may receive the kudos for a well-taken finish, but he didn't do a huge amount aside from that. Boateng worked hard, Tilson ran around a lot.

    If Tisdale is in the market for a new player, I'd strongly suggest we get a specialist right midfielder - I like Edwards as an impact sub at the moment, but we need to shift Taylor inside, and get someone who offers more cover to the left-back.

    I pretty well agree with all of that GiB. Would particularly refer to the bit I have highlighted where I think, for some obscure reason, it goes wider than this in many games. I feel that, frequently, we make entire opposing teams - especially the struggling ones - look better than they actually are and we invariably seem to struggle against them. It's not a new phenomenon, it goes back literally years and it's a long time trait of ours.

    Absolutely GIB, but we pay our manager an overblown salary to sort these things out before we get on the pitch. He is just not earning his keep! Not good enough!

    Did seem a strange choice at the time as Harley second time around isn't the player that left us , I know he has never been the go in for hard tackle types but recently it seems he doesn't want to get involved unless the ball is placed on his foot with plenty of space around him.

    Their number 10 looked like he could run another 45 minutes without too much trouble and should we be looking for someone in the transfer window that's the sort I would like to see us bring into the squad.

    Campbell-Ryce was a joy to watch for them and at 34 still has enough gas to get around the pitch , he's been around probably had his best spell at Barnsley a few years ago & you could tell he had played a higher level (championship) he's also won a few caps for Jamaica so he's no mug....

    Harley was poor IMO , he's seemed to have lost that zip when he receives possession - but to be fair city's tactics didn't suit him whatsoever

    Indeed. Any side with John Akinde, Shaquille Coulthirst and Jamal Campbell-Ryce carries plenty of attacking threat,whatever position in the table they are.

    I rated Barnet when I saw the away game. Coulthirst and Akinde is a very good strike force for league 2 and Campbell-Ryce and Vilhete have been very good for a while. They must have some mentality issues for them to have lost so many games. Maybe heads drop if they go a goal down.

    Would definitely take Vilhete if he left and was staying at this level.

    Just seen the free-kick on the highlights - Pym was covering the right side of the goal, the wall was supposed to be covering the left side. I find it hard to believe the wall was in the right place given how hard the ball was struck - it cannot have moved much in that time. I don't think Ryan Watson would have attempted that kind of direct shot if there wasn't some minor misplacement of the wall. Something for Pym to work on perhaps.
