Well that was bad.

Stevenage were better all over the pitch. The only good point was we kept trying.

Too many players playing out of position for my liking. In Boldewijn, Cox and Roberts we have three of the better wide attackers in this league. Cox playing central, Enzio, central and Roberts as a wing back. Total football and all that but it does weaken the team in my opinion. Maybe Drummy has to grasp the nettle and play his best players in their best positions.

Long way to come to see a very poor game of football. Thought both teams were poor. Seems there are far too many poor performances recently, backed up with poor support. Have caught a couple of Evostik north games and have seen better football played at that level.
Am thinking of going to Blackpool as not too far for me, only hope I will see some decent football, not too much to ask for?

Totally confused by our formation today but we looked weak everywhere. We need to be careful we don't get dragged into a dog fight at the bottom..

Nor did the guy who was still catching up with his work after recently losing a week's money to freeze-ups.

I agree, even if we cannot string decent moves together, the minimum that fans expect is to compete for the ball and disrupt the opposition, more than the result it is that lack of fight that drives folks away.

Bad performance but we still had small climpse of football going forward which ultimately makes it better to watch than the last three seasons. I think we have a good set of players we just need to find the right formation and balance.

We sit so deep defending rarely putting them under pressure. I thought enzo and Collins did a fair bit of work but then the midfield behind seem less mobile. We must have learned that Cox best position is not the hole.

We need to pick up pints and put a run together if playoffs is going to be a remote possibility

I was in the pub before the game and spoke to two 19 year olds that I know .They were going because they were given tickets.They went with 4 others who go now and then to matches, so were persuaded by their mates to miss the rugby on the TV and go to football.I saw them again after the match in the pub and they all left at half time because the football was so poor.I said you should have stuck it out for the second half. Was it better then the first half?i said it was fantastic,if you supported Stevenage.But they were right,it didn't get any better, it just got worse.i know it's only one match but the damage games like that do can do in attracting and keeping new support can't be underestimated.
