The Good The Bad & The Ugly in reverse:-

Their first goal was offside, looks like we've lost Coley with another hammy & Stubbsy has a bad R ankle

Tim Dieng lost his man for their 2nd

The Grecians NEVER gave up !

If we win the next 3 games at home we are still in the hunt !

Has it been said that Coley has done his hamstring? Looked more like cramp to me.

Atangana would have been better than Collins tonight, a bit more putting your foot on the ball and finding passes rather than just running forward and playing a short pass.

O.k. I know Nigel has his drawbacks....

On his last showing, Atangana is better than no one in this squad.

Surely it is time for Taylor to be given a chance?

Didn't think we deserved anything from that. We can't continue to give the opposition a head start. Needs a rethink on how we are set up at the beginning of a match.

Failing to mark players in the box and not playing to the whistle caused the goals.The wingbacks made the wrong decisions throughout the match.Collins and Jay (despite the goal) offered very little in the second half. I wasn't impressed by Mansfield, we made them look good.

Like I said, "he has his drawbacks". Mainly loss of concentration which have cost us on a couple of occasions, but he has his unique style, his vision and his rangey abilities, any way I still like him :)

Just can't get over how good Stubbs is, found myself thinking, "What is this player doing with us!"

If you want to take Collins out you go like for like and put Taylor in. The difference is you'll get more buzz and energy from Taylor.
