    Might go to Wealdstone… Just so I can say, “Come on then, you want some?” and “Shit ground, you got no fans”

    Daws says the players have trained really hard, then said we can’t win every game, even the top Premier League lose occasionally, but he didn’t say you could win some occasionally.

    It’s not panic stations yet but with 4 going down you can soon be cut off; worryingly I actually think we are in a good form patch too and still not picking up wins.

    Dewhurst

    Ogle
    Boyce
    Taft

    Rowe
    Whitehouse
    Butterfield
    Beestin
    O’Malley

    Apter
    Nuttall

    Rowe was limping badly last Saturday and Ntlhe for me was MOTM.

    Definitely need Butters and Rapter back though.

    Any chance of a 4-4-2 do you think?

    I think I’m right in saying Daws has played 4 at the back twice and they are the 2 games he has lost.

    I think we play 3 centre backs often because we don’t have the confidence in any 2 of them.

    I would prefer to stick with 2 and put a defensive midfield in front of them. Rowe, Pugh or Gallimore could do that job.

    Always feel playing 3 at our level allows them to shirk responsibility for covering their man. I’m convinced we allow more free headers in the box when we play with 3.

    Whilst ever Dewhurst is in goal I don’t fancy us for a win.

    Would like to think they trained really hard every week. Daws ain’t the answer, never unearthed any gems in the youth squad. Why we insist on ex iron players being in the fold.
    Great cheap option to appoint within.
    Anybody for a part time iron next season? Even if we managed to stay in the NL?
    Oh and a spanking on the cards tomorrow. Wonder the odds are for a goal against within first 10mins.

    Daws was what was left at the back of the cupboard once Old Mother Hubbard had buggered off.

    There by circumstance not design.

    my heart says away win 2-1
    my head says home win 2-0
    so probably be another draw .. 1-1

    ALL the fixtures in the NL are nasty but a particularly nastier than nasty few against richer clubs fancied to go up adds more importance to this game .. whilst it remains very tight at the moment and a string of wins could see any team go mid to upper table in the blink of an eye the flip side being losses or draws and we could find ourselves cut loose in the the bottom 2 or 3 in the next 4 weeks .. Im kinda preparing my self for NLN which is a distinct possibly .. as is being raped n folded by our illustrious chairman as he rides off into the Blackpool sunset.

    Nuttall up front on his own.

    Bizarre tactics to try and Wilcox a 0-0 with our defensive record.

    Wish daws would admit he has no idea what he is doing. Formations and positioning of players makes no sense whatsoever. Our defenders are awful so we play with 5 of them, none of dawses decisions ever make any sense whatsoever
    Lee hodges has seen us play for half a game and has pretty much nailed all our problems and yet our manager does nothing about it

    Reassuring to hear that Hodges and the commentator have no idea what formation we play too.

    Following Scunthorpe is deflating, 6 wins in 59 and a half games and sounds like we were playing for a draw isn’t good enough, why aren’t they told to go out and give it a real go.

    “They look like they don’t have a clue!” Ollie.
    Lee Hodges seems shocked by the fare on offer!

    Am turning the commentary off.
    Have a nice afternoon.
    This is the only thing I can do to help. If I don’t listen they’ll probably play well just to spite me.

    Totally agree, we are in serious trouble. Really can not see how we will get enough wins to stay up. Only one man to blame for this.

    I know this gets said when we’re in the mire, often to ridicule but think we could do with someone like Laws back in again. At knows & cares about the club, whilst certainly having plenty of passion he can instil into the players. No poor result is a shock anymore and gap beginning to open up. Desperate times now and more to come
