Getting a bit worried again now. Looking at the remaining fixtures can't see us picking up many more points. This weekend away to Swansea who got spanked tonight so are likely to be up for Saturday, Away to Notts. Forest who have now won 12 on the trot at home, away to Newcastle, home to rapidly improving Reading... Think it's going to get even tighter than it currently is down at the bottom of the table. I'd recommend bringing in a couple of strikers on emergency loan for the last couple of months. Jon Stead and Jordan Rhodes perhaps?
what a poor perofrmance, where was our wingers tonight? people will probably say not the managers fault but keane did not get out of his seat once to shout to the wingers to get on the touchline etc, just has not got a clue about his best 11. deserves to get sacked after that, embarassing againts a poor team at home!
brockleyblue...swansea may very well be up for it after getting hammered, but dont you think we will be equally up for it after such a dismal performance tonight!?
tonight was shocking, and havent seen such poor defending by us in a long long time, however i believe the players will be really hurting from this, its one thing to perform poorly away, but to do it at home is something else. we will bounce back again, and i honestly cant see us going down, you may view our remaining games as tough, but they are no more tough than anyone else below us really
hoping for better but expected something like this have i mentioned before that i believe roy is a useless manager and should be sacked before hes gets us relegated .. i suppose all the keanites will come rushing out saying what a great bloke he is on sky tv blah blah. why doesnt he get a job on sky tv and stop destroying our club..and too all his fervant followers i still say you are too blame for encouraging the club to keep him on when hes clearly useless and should have been sacked after the 1st 10 games
Roy Keane is like chewing on a spicy kebab on the way home from the pub...good idea at the time, bad idea after time!
It won't end in a sacking but I don't think there will ever be a time when we look on at his tenure and agree that he was the one who turned the club around. This time last year we were calling for our managers head even though we were within a whisker of the play off's.
In the second half the Plymouth keeper made 5 excellent saves to keep them int eh match. We more or less ignored John Walters. The forthcoming fixtures do not bode well. What we lacked was any real invention. As soon as we are safe he needs to go. We need a proper manager
That one was the last straw for me. I've been a staunch pro-Keaner all season but our performances should be getting better not worse. After tonight and the diabolical showing against watford i have to say i'm all but out of patience.
We've taken 2 points from 18 against the bottom 3! Simply not good enough for the money spent and the calibre of player in our side. What's going on?
KEANO GET OFF YOUR SEAT AND GIVE THE TEAM SOME DIRECTION AND PASSION. You just cannot see how a game is forming looking through a sea of legs, Matt Holland was reading the game very well from his position, he could see our wing play was negative and nothing done about it. Did you see Mariner sit down NO of course not, also it was hard to believe that his team had been on there travels since last friday with there display I have backed you Keano all the season, but it is wearing thin now. Do we need a high profile manager ?????????? !!!!!!
As much as one can blame Keane for the club situation some of the players really don't seem to care less...travelled for two hours to see that dross last night....agreed that Mariner showed more passion and caring...get off your a*rse Keane and at least show that you care... I don't want to know how much you criticise yourself or what you have been... I want my club to be successful or at the very least competitive....Yep...too true.. a spicy kebab! And the Gavascon is being glugged by the bottle!!!!
At least we can't blame Keane for tinkering with the side. He started with the same players that performed so miserably against Barnsley so we shouldn't be so surprised at last night.
Where did the first hapf tactic of passing back to Murphy to hump it down field come from. It was food and drink for their defence, which we are lead to believe was a makeshift line up. I wouldn't know as we hardly tested them.
How Edwards remains in the side is a mistery to me and Walters has not had a good game since being made captain. The only two to come out with any credit were Mac and Pablo and Pabs was taken off!
To me, last night came down to who wanted it most. Plymouth were up for it, Town looked like they would rather be anywhere else. Motivation falls fair and square on the Manager and Keane failed to get any from his players last night.
"There will be the usual over-reaction" I hope that is not directed at the supporters who in my opinion have been incredibly patient this season. Is it any wonder that people are becoming frustrated given the awful football we have been watching this year ? Last night was not a one off, the games against Scunthorpe and Barnsley were not much better. Yes Plymouth are a poor side but everyone needs to realise that so are we and have been all season. The lowest we have finished recently was 05-06 when we ended 15th, a season when the club was still recovering from administration. You have to go back to 1966 to find a season when we were this low, again finishing 15th. This is despite millions being poured into the club and more coaches than ever before who seemingly cannot see this side has no natural width and no pace up front making it easy for the opposition to make our play predictable. It really is hard to imagine things getting any worse than last night however unfortunately under this manger I fear they just might.
No width, no depth to the attack. Aimless balls tossed up against a back line that lacked movement but certainly had height. Where is the tactical knowledge?
Compare the two benches; Mariner and Calver coached and cadjoled an average Plymouth team through the game - the result - they were organised, disciplined and worked. Our bench? Sat there motionless watching one of the most unorganised and clueless performances in years.
It's a good job Curbishley's bought in Woodbridge...
