Tom Carroll 22:10 - Dec 15 with 2420 viewsDubtractor

How long is his contract? Hopefully just this season!

I think he stood out as possibly our worst player in that first half, and that's a bold statement I know. I don't think I've ever seen a more ineffectual performance from a centre midfielder - almost all his passes were backwards or sideways, he offered no protection to the back 4, not sure I saw him run with the ball at all.

I was born underwater, I dried out in the sun. I started humping volcanoes baby, when I was too young.

Lee Evans last Tuesday was arguably worse (for the same reasons) - but yeah, I'm in broad agreement.

What a bunch of sh1t we have playing for us.

Again.

He is just another player to add to the list over the last 20 years that have come here, played a few games and moved on without doing anything of note.

How depressing is it that my youth consisted of heroes like Johno, Scowie, Sticky, Wrighty, Dyer, Stewart, Mogga, Jim, Clapham etc whereas now you struggle to remember players that were even in last years squad!

The Barrow players pressed and all we did most of the night was pass backwards.

Our players (when the passes arrive at all) receive the ball facing their own goal, don't turn and just head off in the wrong direction. Then all they can do is pass sideways or backwards, because that's the direction they're facing.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

If we'd been able to sustain any kind of possession he would have proved useful tonight. As it happened we couldn't keep the ball in their half whatsoever, it was painful.

I don't see the point in blaming individual players - albeit we've all got players we like and dislike - the 'team' is a mess right now.

He didn't play great, but I thought he took responsibility for getting on the ball which was more than most.

Irony is managers and fans want us to be a silky passing team but we don’t have the personnel for it. It’s no surprise we look better when we hoof it and wait for a flick on or bad defensive header and break from there. Mick knew it so played to that plan and it worked. We don’t have the defenders to play that way as it showed tonight and we were being penned in our own half through trying to play a way we simply are not capable of and never have been or will be.

Frig me, I know average ratings on here are never a particularly useful guide but I don't think I'd ever seen anyone poll lower than 2/10 before. That's into Mark Fishing waters isn't it?

The new Emyr Huws - a shadow of the player he used to be. However, while he now appears a pointless signing, he's only started 2 league games this season so hard to blame him for Town's total mess.

That midfield 1st half
aluko Carroll el miz and frazer cannot ever play together again. were they thinking this was friendly? or a game on the beach?

tackling ?????????????????????????????????
control????????????????????????
waste of time

Norwood and jackson no passes to them.
back4 no cover even though they were shocking to 1st half - edmondson was missed

we look a shambles right now.

3 defenders are needed
2 big strong midfielders are required in the next window
