|Oh blimey am now doubting Lambert!|
at 11:40 3 Feb 2019
Remember the first half v Reading away, looked like the beginning of a new dawn playing great passing football and scoring twice. And now look at us, in a worse positiin than when Hurst left. Not for a minute saying Lambert should go, he should be given the rebuild job next season, i think! However he simply hasn't improved things enough, if at all. Defence still leaks goals, midfield is static and attack impotent. He has bought new pkayers in of questionable quality, Elder, Quaner and Dawkins don't seem better than what we have. We have a massive squad of low quality. Yes some results have been unfortunate with dodgy refereeing but even with the players we have we should be doing better points wise. I am now doubtibg his ability to turn us round medium/long term. I really hope i am wrong
|Bench looks a bit unbalanced|

2 defenders, 2 central midfielders and 2 wide men. No central strikers. Would prefer to see Harrison for Dawkins in case the newbies tire towards the end of the game
|Scored 2 good goals conçeded 3 terrible ones|

Surely when a team is so poor you have to build from the back and stop conceding. My only question of the Lambert regime is why is there such little sign of any better defending. A borderline or unnecessary penalty, terrible back post marking and an awful back pass finished us today. Just don't believe this is the best the defenders we have can do.
On a separate note that's 2 borderline pens in 2 matches. That's very unfortunate.
|Should Lambert be doing better defensively?|

I know the defenders aren't the best but you see other managers go in and drill and drill the defence and organise them better? We are still leaking poor goals and appear very open without enough protection from midfield. I feel for him with 2 unreliable keepers but we don't seem much changed defensively and i hoped for a bit better.
Overall I support PL and the change to better football with more pass and move and higher possession levels. However you do see even very average defenders trained and organised to stem the flow

|Formation yesterday 4-3-3?|
at 12:46 2 Dec 2018
For those there did we keep to a 4-3-3? If so who was the third in midfield along side Skuse and Bishop? Read somewhere it was Lankester? If so seems a bit light on defensive aspect of midfield. Poss a bit too ambitious away to Forest? Any thoughts?

Would any of our starting 11 tonight get in.
Probably not - says it all about the gulf in quality

|Best half of football I have seen from us for ages|
at 16:06 10 Nov 2018
Progressive football played on the deck. Shame about their goal as they have offered so little. Think the set up really suits the players we have on the pitch. Concerned they will be better second half and we may run out of steam.

Any info greatfully received. Thought there was a thread but can't find it....
|Here's a novel idea|

Whoever the new manager is and whoever he has managed before let's get behind him because we want the best for our club.

Terrible start which really rocked us. Poor Downes lost the ball in our half and they scored. He held hid head in his hands and looked devastated. What followed was about 35 mins of terrible football by us. Long hopefull balls towards Walters with litle or no off the ball movement. Really really poor but at least we kept it down to 1-0. We rallied a bit at the end of the first half and Edwards had a good attempt blocked.
Second half was better with more urgency and a bit more creativity. However we still didn't create enough and rarely had enough men in the box when balls did come into the box. Hull created the better chances and consequently scored again which was sickening. The players:
Gerken - couple of good saves and reasonable distribution. Did nothing wrong.
Spence - poor imo and looked as though he could have made a tackle to prevent the second goal. Why make Donacien the loanee to miss out and have 4 on the bench. Baffling.
Knudsen - pretty poor too. Looked uncertain.
Pennington - Played well
Chambers - playing on less favoured side made the odd miscue but is the underated heartbeat of itfc
Skuse - got through a lot of work and would have been much worse without him
Downes - After errror for goal picked hinself up and tackled well but lacks polush offensively
Nolan - very disappointing. For a no 10 no killer passes, not supporting Walters in the box
Edwards - fans favourite so will score well in ratings but was very quiet. Class shows when on ball
Graham - mecurial talent who showed flashes of skill and took some great penetrating corners. Also bit selfish, picks wrong option and wants too much time in the box.
Walters - great effort and tenacity but little support early on
Jackson - looked bright when coming on and gave Hull defence lots to think about
Rowe - rabbit in headlights - wasted sub
Jackson - no time to do anything
Hurst - his gamble with player turnover looks to be going wrong and turnover in selections is worrying
Finally what a nasty niggly player Fraser Campbell is...

All these sweeping judgements after 4 league matches. So much doom and gloom. I am still optimistic and much happier than in the last couple of years of MM's regime. Football is better and results will follow.
|Embarrassed to be a town fan today|

The hate filled abuse aimed at our manager, largely by spotty twenty something's was disgusting. I am no great fan of his as a manager and think it is right for him to go but really? Town fans used to have more class and integrity but this new breed are utter morons. How do they think that helps the team? And the irony of them singing there's only one Bobby Robson when had they been around in his poor early spell they would have shouted abuse at him too. The herd mentality is pathetic to witness frankly.
|Congrats to Luke Hyam|
at 19:16 6 Mar 2018
Role of team scapegoat sewn up. Has he actually been sent of that many times? Here mentality I spose...
|So are people going to slam Sears and Hyam now|
at 19:17 21 Feb 2018
or wait til the match is done.
Seems ridiculous that Hyam getting so much abuse when he has only just got back from a very long injury. Hope they both have blinders, not that that would get them anything above 4/10 in the ratings

Not very impressed with him defensively today - got roasted a few times. Is he really better than Emmanuel
