The weird thing is Tis did pick an attacking side for Blackpool, and the fact they didn't win, [robably caused him to go negative for Cov.

Honestly there was little wrong with the Blackpool team he picked, it should have won, oddly think Watkins was the one that let us down,
I'm really not sure why people are talking about the Tisdale finals now, but our Blackpool performance lacked creativity around the box and every time Watkins got it he fluffed it. Blackpool also were a much better side than Northampton, who will go straight back down. For the record, I am really glad Tis is not manager anymore and love Matt Taylor as a manager still.

Honestly there was little wrong with the Blackpool team he picked, it should have won, oddly think Watkins was the one that let us down, was the huge star and just tried to do too much IMHO. I didn't see negativity just players that froze. We looked in control and then for about 10 minutes we couldn't keep the ball, and I know Tis probably wasn't the most inspiring half-time motivator, but am pretty sure he didn't tell them at half-time, right lads I want you to consistently pass to the oppo, just to kill the momentum we had at half-time.

You can blame Tisdale for lots of things but his tactics against Blackpool was attacking and okay, his players didn't perform, and you can blame him for not having them in the right frame of mind, but it's just revisionist nonsense to say we were negative with the side we put out in that match.
I didn't say the side he picked was negative.

so so angry with that **** show. we made Northampton look incredible. Sweeney and Jake both need to move on.
It is time Sweeney went. Pass after pass given to the opposition. As usual? Out thought. Out fought. Defended like a Sunday pub team.

A sad evening and a sad result. But....we've had worse times than this, so get some kip and come out tomorrow believing again.
We're a good club, and in good hands. Mistakes get made. Forgive.
I'm trying. Fair comment. Deano has done great things in a City shirt not least in the final in 2008.

Can you show me where you wrote this prediction?
Jinxy wrote it on a bit of paper that was slipped into Matt Taylor's pocket, which he will find when he empties his troosers tomorrow just before he sits down to go over the retained list. That's magic.

Oh hang on, I'm confusing him with Lez.
