Pretty bad all round but Horvath made some great saves. Bin the loans and build from those who want to stay (ie not Wintle)
That one terrible throw out to JWE aside Horvath was great. Could easily have been 0-4

I don’t buy this at all. He’s never even come close to throwing his toys out of the pram, quite the opposite imo, I think he answers the questions he’s asked straight. I just think he has a very average team to work with and I don’t think he’s that good a manager.

He did after the Plymouth game, he threatened he could leave if he didn't get any signings in.

Really want Bulut to succeed ,but as the games go by he seems to get it wrong more than right .Today for instance Grant has had his best games out wide ,but today because the need to accommodate O'Dowda decides to move Grant to central striker we had to central strikers on the bench .How many poor games does Wintel have to have before Bulut sees he's not the answer in midfield .Looking like we are going to end the season with a whimper .Yet another dreadful home performance ,certainly not encouraging the masses to invest in a season ticket even if they are priced competitive .:bluebird:

That performance was disgusting.
Especially after swsnsea. The players owed us and let us down.
Played all our neat football and achieved nothing.
Get it forward

He was asked the question about his future and he gave an honest answer. That’s not throwing your toys out the pram. I have no problem with what he says or his attitude or demeanour, he comes across as a likeable, affable sort of a bloke. The problem I have is with the way we try to play ‘football’

It's definitely his preferred deflection tactic when going gets tough, what he said today is pretty much what he said after Plymouth. The uncertainty around "my future could be affecting performances" oh please, just admit you fucked up.

I think he his right. Half our squad are loan.players with one eye on next season and that is natural.There is no sign from the board whats going on so.no wonder performances are effected if they dont know what the future holds.
Having said that they are being paid to play and today just wasn't good enough.
All this slow build up is ok if you have the players and we don't.

Time to fuck this cunt off now. He isn’t bigger than the club. He keeps coming out with this shit and it unsteadies the ship. The reason he hadn’t been offered a new contract is because he’s shown nothing to justify himself getting one.
Yes, he’s kept us up but the football is painful to watch and he’s shown absolutely nothing to indicate he would be able to take the club up a level. Starting to come across as a bit of a bitch.
I see your point of view but remember he hasn't had the players he wanted just last minute cheap buys.
He has more than done what he was asked to do.
Football is poor I fully agree but the squad isn't the best is it.

Hiw dud tge boy Cowill do today...run the show I bet:hehe:
Not sure if you were at the game? But if you were you would have seen the number of times he showed for the ball in tight situations only for our defenders and defensive midfielders to shit themselves at the thought of passing forward. He didn't have his best game, but he was far far from being the worst and did not deserve to be hooked. Looks like you're going have to take that Bulut poster off you bedroom wall.

For about the first 20 mins anything good we did (which wasn’t much) was through Colwill.

Colwill is no good in a sideways style.
He needs players around him to feed off the opportunities he can create
Football is pretty simple. The goals are up there get the ball up to where the goals are not piss pot around the halfway line.

The midfield of Ralls, Wintle and Colwill was just wrong from the start and did nothing to influence the game.
I’ve managed 0 games of professional football but even I can see that putting Wintle and Ralls in the same midfield simply doesn’t work.

Agree midfield was awful today and tried three combinations.

Wintle, Ralls and Colwil
Wintle, Ralls and Ramsey
Wintle, Robinson and Ramsey

The last one was marginally better than the other two I suppose, but we were poor all over the pitch again really weren't we.

I think one of our main problems again today was both strikers. Grant cannot play up front on his own, and Diedhiou, other than bit of decent link up play later on doesn’t seem to offer anything, and neither of them can hold the ball up.

And yet we had Turnball on the bench who we actually signed not get on ,while Wintle added nothing Ralls had his worse game for a While and for all his talent Ramsey isn't playing in the roll we need him to as he continues to drop deep to try influence the play nullifying his threat as a number 10.Colwill is somewhat of a luxury when he's on his game he is a threat but when we continue to lose possession we are carrying him.Robinson I'm still not sure what he actually offers .Up top we are still no closer to solving the lack of goals coming from there be it because of the lack of quality or our lack of creativity .Statistically we must rank low in regards on crosses into the box from wide area's .Defensively while Goutas has on the whole been playing well recently though he's hesitant in possession and we are getting punished for it.We are in for another major overhaul ,of that there is no doubt ,and it wouldn't be a surprise if we're looking for a new manager before the seasons out .Another season draws to its conclusion with many of the same problems we've had in previous one's still relevant .:bluebird:

And who do you blame for the last minute cheap buys? Maybe the players he wanted weren’t interested in playing for a manager who had been in decline since October.

If the money is right players will come.
The board are obviously undecided about him .
I have said before at the start of the season to be where we are most of us would have been happy.
I am not saying he is perfect but remember what we had before Hudson etc.

I think a good illustration of our problems up front was when Bowler got past a couple of defenders, got to the line and got a good cross in, and there was no one at the far post to meet it, all three city players in the penalty box has gone to the near post. Bloody bonkers. The players need to look at themselves for that.
