In fairness to Artur....

Shouldn't someone start a 'Troy Out Thread'. The first goal was his fault. He should have attempted some sort of challenge and provided a dreadful backpass for the second goal.

I think the backpass was fine, he had plenty of time to put the ball upfield, wouldn't have even needed to put it into touch. It would have been routine for any keeper who was comfortable with his kicking and comfortable with the ball at his feet...which is where Artur fell down tonight.

Every keeper makes the odd howler. The difference is that most keepers make them about once every thirty or forty games, Artur makes one every three.

Good on him, he tries his best and he always picks himself up and goes again...but he can't kick, he's not particularly commanding on crosses, he's too slow to distribute the ball and he is more than a little prone to howlers...I just don't see what he offers.
Pretty much spot on.

Troy made an error with the first goal. Krysiak made an absolute f*cking horrendous c*ck up. The back pass was easy enough to deal with.

I still think the backpass was not the best but agree that Artur should have dealt with it. Maybe I was generous and gave him the benefit of the doubt by saying he should have simply put it out.

Some of these decisions made by Tisdale over the last week are keeping some fans away. I hope he starts making some better ones in the next few weeks else Exeter will turn into a rugby city with a joke of a football team ;)
