Not a bad thing we are out really do not have the squad depth for cup runs that are unlikely to draw big crowds or a trophy. Norwich will beat better sides than us at home so 3-1 not awful.

Kind of Norwich to save a goal for us. FT 3-1 Norwich.

It's a huge problem we were supposed to be set up this year to score more goals ...but we don't try or can't keep the ball and we survive off scraps and long balls. Technically quite a lot of our players seem to struggle at this level. Bobson is A star for effort but control is poor , Tomlin has been very poor , Young has not looked up to it , O Connor is similar to Bobson , Henderson is a total conundrum some great quality mixed with very poor play. Smith looks slow and very immobile. Harold we haven't seen at all.

There will come a point if these players don't improve we will have to question the judgement of the signings. One or two or even three mistakes are expected but we can't afford so many in a very small squad.. It's to early for judgements but a lot of worrying signs.

It's not a bad thing we lost 3-1 to a good championship side away from home in the cup. But, it's not good that we've missed out on another potential big game payday in the cup.

No one did. Was it in a foreign tongue ?

Try using Wink - then we will know

Thought we played really well. We had the better of the first half, an unfortunate error from Jensen was the only difference.

The second could have killed us but we fought back, another goal from McLeod and we had them on the ropes - two clearances off the line before they broke away for an undeserved (but top quality) third.

Plenty of impressive performances tonight. I thought McLeod put in a real shift and the back 5 were outstanding. On the downside Tomlin was pretty feeble and I haven't a clue what Lewis Young is doing at Crawley Town. Reminded me of those two Palace kids from last season - rabbit in the headlights stuff.

Lots of positives to take to MK on Saturday, although it seems they have a few of their own.

Good crowd and decent pay day for us 45 percent of whatever 14500 generates ..equivalent of a couple of home league games..

The defeat is irrelevant we never really expected a result. Saturday is far more important three straight losses we need to get something from Saturday. The biggest risk is losing becomes a habit. We clearly have huge problems scoring and the style of play creates pressure on what should be a decent defence seven goals conceded end in three games and two scored not one wins games with those stats.

Tonight was all about experience but we need to start getting some results soon.
