Hartridge was given another chance and he didn't do too badly.Crawley player went straight past him in the first half once.It was his passing on that left hand side that stood out.Some of the balls he put through to Sparkes were veey good,but you wouldn't have noticed because Sparkes wasted everything that was given to him.Made me think that Hartridge's best position could be in a midfield 3 if we are ever set up like that again.

No point beating around the bush, this line up isn't going to get you promoted from league 2.

Andrésson
Sweeney
Parkes
Hartridge
Caprice
Collins
Taylor
Sparkes
Jay
Fisher
Seymour
Especially if your first 2 off the bench are McArdle and Atangana.

These sending offs from senior players are pathetic. I blame Bowman as much as Parkes for todays defeat because he couldn't even be on the pitch. It will cost us in the end and we now have to play on Tuesday with an untried central defensive partnership, presumably of Hartridge and McArdle and my Grandmother has more pace than those two put together. I know centre halves with pace are hard to come by in L2 but surely someone with average pace can be found.

Dire game
Dire Ref
Dire result
Dire selection and substitutions
In otherwords just dire

We were uninspiring all game, stupid decisions by Parkes for the sending off, Caprice I thought a bit unlucky as the player was going down anyway, didn't help him holding his shirt as he went. Poor panicked substitutions by KMT straight after the red, the only way we were going to score was on the break with one of our ball players and he leaves a camel on and takes off two of the best ball players we have.

Atangana like Fisher doesn't do it for me, more of a liability than Hartridge,( who I thought didn't have too bad a game and was good to see us trying to use his throw-in ability this match).

Toothless attack

I'm just glad crowds aren't allowed as I may have travelled to that one like last year - thank heavens for small mercies

If Sweeney is going to be out for the next couple of games then Parkes red card is worth an appeal. The tackle itself isn’t reckless, isn’t off the ground and his studs aren’t showing, it’s just late. Handbags after probably means no chance of getting it rescinded, but I’d try anything to avoid a McArdle and Hartridge back two on Tuesday!
Don't even mention that..🤐

I take no pleasure in saying this but in future even if our attacking options are severely limited after such an unbelievably lazy and c**p performance where he offered absolutely nothing either as an attacking threat or defensive cover, proving beyond doubt he is not even a poor man’s Ryan Bowman, I never want to see Fisher in the first team squad again.

This has been one of MT’s worst managerial performances and if after today he does include Fisher on Tuesday I will have severe doubts as whether he is as good a manager as many of us have thought he is.
