    Absolute Cack - only saw the second half and there are some saying we played better the the first half!! just really awful - I don't know wtf has happened but the game looked like a bloody pub match, especially with Pym having to run up to row B of the stand to fetch the match ball whilst the ball boys sat and watched him, little tw*ts..

    Why do we pass the ball around for so long at the back ( on a heavy wet pitch too!) before lumping it up the pitch - they may as well just get it up there straight away . That was just really , really bad. Hard to believe that the are actually professionally trained footballing players...

    Starting with a lone striker and a packed defensive midfield, with a strong wind behind us, why?

    The one big point you have to acknowledge though under TT & P is the years of apparent stability compared to previous years. Has the welcome been abused for self interest......!!!
    It is time for a change, the management are arrogant beyond belief, the Trust must now stand up and be counted - the stalemate cannot continue.
    Absolutely spot on and like you I would acknowledge without doubt the current triad has brought stability to the Club but self interest has now taken over and the Trust as the Club owners should stand up.

    Unfortunately this is where our ownership model falls short because in truth the Trust really has no real power to force such major changes.

    Something isn't right with the team at the moment and it's hard to remember how good we looked at the start of the season. Once again Tis seems to have lost the plot and gone ultra cautious with his team selections and surely he must realise that it isn't"t working and must adopt a more attacking approach again or otherwise we will end the season in mid table at best.

    With the quality we have in the squad not making at least the play offs would be a major disappointment and questions must surely be asked if we continue to under perform.

    Rather bizarre match, played in a very tricky swirling wind.
    The first half was awful, but in the second (even with the same set-up at the start), we made much more of a game of it and in the end were unlucky not to get a point. Pym could do little with their two goal: 1 gift, one missile.
    Stockley had a great match - hope hs not badly injured, it looks a nasty clash of heads.
    Should have brought Holmes on sooner, our midfield looked a bit pedestrian at times.
    Still think we have the players to mount a credible challenge.
    Off to warm up, how can anybody live in a climate like this?!!

    This is probably why there was 8 minutes added, along with Stockley's head injury.

    We may well have the players the question to be asked is do we have the manager?

    Perhaps if we tried to win the game from the start, we wouldn't need any extra minutes. So tired of Tisdale's selections and tactics.

    Was Stockley concussed? If so, it seems that rules him out of the WBA game:
