Now stick with that line-up, that system, that attitude.

Apparently we shouldn't be so negative.

They tried their best.

Yep, two 0-0 home draws in the third division, miles off the play-offs, a manger who clearly doesn't want to be here and an owner who doesn't know how to run a football club and has taken us from challenging for the Premier League to a team that is on the verge of slipping into the bottom half and conceivably on this form will be facing a battle to avoid relegation to the fourth division next season.

Not sure what we have to be negative about, we should pull ourselves together.

The whole ref thing.
at 19:34 18 Feb 2021

Really surprised how sympathetic I have felt towards the ref from Tuesday. There would've been a time when I would've been livid at him treating one of our players like that. Perhaps it's the whole Covid thing giving me a different perspective or just generally maturing as I get older.

However, thinking about it, it struck me that it was perhaps an indication of how disconnected I feel from everyone at the club. It's not helped by not being able to go to the ground and be there watching them in person, but generally I feel so little connection with a squad of players, management and owner who seem to care so little for the club. I can't bring myself to defend the players against the ref, because I don't feel on the same side as them anymore.

Sad really.

Either Lambert genuinely believes he can take us up...
at 19:58 16 Feb 2021

...or he is just waiting for the big payout.

If it's the latter, surely he doesn't need the money? And nor do his coaching staff?

If it's the former, surely even he can now see it just isn't going to happen? Even with best will in the world.

Surely it is best for everyone - himself included - if he went. Even just for his own dignity?

In all fairness, I think we have a good chance of finishing top.

It shouldn't astound me.

But it does.

Just when I think we couldn't get any lower, there we go. At what point is someone at this club actually going to do something about this instead of just sitting on their hands and hoping it all just magically gets better somehow?

Injuries aren't helping, I get that.

Lots of youngsters on the pitch, granted.

But taking Jackson off when we needed goals and an extra striker? That suggests that even if he had everything at his disposal, Lambert would still mess it up. Baffling decision.

As much for getting rid of that ridiculous artificial crowd noise on MOTD that makes me feel like I'm watching FIFA.

This is why so many of us couldn't get excited about Saturday.

Regardless of whether we'd got the winner against Shrewsbury, it was obvious even then that this was how tonight was going to go.

Disappointed but not upset.
at 17:55 7 Nov 2020

Bunch of fringe players, youngsters and players returning from injury against one of the best teams we could face at this stage who were at full strength and full of confidence and we made it a real contest. Could've crumbled after that start but didn't. Great as well to see Norwood back and scoring. If he can stay fit and be in form alongside our midfielders continuing to score then that bodes well for the league.

Hoping this post doesn't age well...

...but I'll be relieved by a narrow defeat tonight. Got no confidence with us against any of the better teams in this division and would be delighted with a draw. A win would probably be our best result since we ended up in this division.

COYBs, prove me wrong!

...probably Charlton too.

Might as well forfeit our games against them. Clearly we won't be getting any points against them as again we've shown we're utterly incapable of competing against anyone with anymore talent than a pub team. Save us the anguish of ninety minutes each time, free up a hectic fixture schedule, help minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus, etc.

We were bound to lose at some point.
at 22:40 20 Oct 2020

Wish it was later of course and not in such a emphatic fashion, but the real difference between this season and last (and indeed most seasons in recent years) is how we react. If we follow this up with a fragile, tentative display against Lincoln (in which case we'll get battered, but that is almost an aside for the purposes of this post), then we know that we just have the same problem of a weak bunch of players who just collapse a the first sign of difficulty. The signs aren't good after the way they fell apart tonight, but here's hoping...
