|Really hope Evans is listening and will back Lambert to re build the club|
at 20:35 5 Jan 2019
Even though I travelled a long way to see the match, I’m wondering if this loss would be the final wake up call for Evans. I hope that he will provide funds to help Lambert re build his team. Even if he were to limit the funding thereafter, it’s in his interests to let Lambert build the team his way as the team we saw today is so so poor, even for league one. I fully believe Lambert is the man to take us forward. I just hope Evans has that view too - we can’t risk losing him as he has done so many positive things for the club off the pitch anyway!

I always thought we’d escape somehow, but after today’s match I can’t see a way out at all.
Sloppy goals punished us in a game we should have put to bed by half time!
|Well that was awful! |

But we won so I couldn’t be happier. It’s about time we had some luck, especially with a ref that bad.
Wigan will surely be joining the relegation scrap?
|Skuse out for 'months' rather than weeks|

What a disaster. Our already fragile defence is set to become even more fragile!
The amount of interceptions he makes and his ability to break up opposition attacks will be missed greatly.
|All 3 goals were an absolute disgrace |

We had a great opportunity tonight. Could have only been 3 points from safety with a win.
Hate to say it, but I can’t see us surviving.
|Crowd of over 22,000 tonight|

bottom of the league and being shown on Sky - fantastic support and shows that the fans are out there.
Considering that with the season ticket £10 deals, we don't see a big improvement in attendances, I hope that moving forward the club adopts the £10 all round policy with their promotions. Especially with the situation we find ourselves in - we need all the fans we can get in the ground. Any season ticket holders who moan about 'rewarding the true fans' or whatever that BS is can do one :) That's just moaners being moaners - as a season ticket holder I'd much rather see the fans coming in - I'm sure that most are in this boat too.

|Mid October - Mid November will be key for our season|

4 out of the 5 games we really need to be winning as it's against teams around us. I think I'd personally give Hurst until then and if things still haven't picked up, get rid.
This then allows a new manager to come in, assess the squad and make the necessary signings in January to keep us in this division.
|IMO, it's almost a waste of time trying to play nice football|

on a budget like ours. We simply can't spend the millions like the top teams are to get the players capable of playing in such a way. Yes, the previous couple of seasons have been dreadful, but I'd rather see us finish mid table than try to play nice football and be where we are now!
It's a difficult one, as we either play nice football but struggle to compete, or play Mick style, finish mid-table, occasionally flirting with the play offs but be so so boring to watch.
Having said that, when Dozzell came on yesterday, he certainly seemed capable of playing the football most fans are after. Fantastic touch and vision when making a pass!
|Gerken has impressed me, but I hope we play Bart tonight|
at 15:12 2 Oct 2018
I anticipate there will be a fair few long balls and they will be effective from set pieces because of their height / physical presence. I feel that Bart is far better at commanding his area which will be very important because of how they will play. Whenever the ball is in the air, Gerken has in the past made me nervous as he doesn't seem to command his area well at all or pick up loose balls which Bart would have.
|Now we've had 10 matches played|

If you include the league cup game, how would you rate the signings so far?
The only players that have impressed me so far are Donacien and Edwards, although the latter hasn't impressed as much in recent appearances.
Jackson has done OK - still think we have overpaid for him and he's more of an athlete than a footballer but we shall see. Not convinced he has the attributes to be a lone striker.
Nsiala I have liked the look of as he's an absolute tank, but on Saturday he seemed a bit error prone.
Nolan and Harrison have been my biggest disappointments so far, I think both have looked poor in any games I have seen them.
Roberts we haven't seen enough of but is clearly not good enough at the moment.
Walters hasn't had enough time.
Graham hasn't looked great for me but again needs more time to show what he can do.
Chalobah hasn't really impressed me very much at all. I expected a lot more.
