'I was disappointed in the performance in both halves'
at 08:02 14 Apr 2021

'.... it was too slow, too pedestrian, and really not playing like they were supposed to.'

'I didn't think we worked hard enough in possession or out of possession.'

'... players running past ours far to easily.'

'There need to be a few home truths.'

'... another pathetic goal to concede.'

'Clearly our attitude wasn't right tonight.'

All quotes from the Paul Hurst interview after being knocked out of the cup by Exeter in August 2018, 2 years and 8 months ago.

Every comment could apply to our players now and, get this, five (FIVE) of the players who finished yesterdays game played in that Exeter game.

Those comments are when I believe Hurst may have started to lose the Dressing room. The players did not react well. Many on here were calling out Hurst saying he was wrong and out of order. We stuck up for the players and blamed Hurst. I'm no Hurst apologist but I think he was bang on.

Now Cook is saying the same things all these years later and we all agree. Remeber five players still there yesterday pulling the same stunt. Isn't hindsight a wonderful thing

Looked helluva player. Was just strolling around knocking the ball about like it was a park kick around.

So do we think the players will buck their ideas up now?
at 14:48 7 Apr 2021

Because if they didn't think so before, now they REALLY know they are playing for their future.

I don't think the nice Indian lady has ever seen anyone punch the air and shout 'yes' with an ear to ear grin as she handed over the food!

She was happy too ....
I can only think some of the players haven't taken to Cook

They are not playing for the shirt and certainly not for him.

He must be embarrassed at that shambles ... Hope he gets rid of as many as he can in the Summer.
Have all our players been drugged

So sluggish ... They all look knackered!

Evening news channels here all over this. Whatever happens it's going to erode confidence.

This is beautiful ....

A tribute to his late father and Bowie.

All the more moving as Peter Frampton is suffering from a rare muscular disease that will soon render him unable to play guitar.

Lets hope so ...

I reckon Evans will be contacting the Americans ASAP ...

I'd feel like walking away and I love the club more then he ever will.

Tanzanian President Magufuli is dead
at 07:03 18 Mar 2021

Covid denier who claimed that he sent Goat and fruit samples that came back Covid positive has died having not been seen for a couple of weeks. Tanzania hasn't published any Covid figures for months and refused all Vaccines. Heart condition apparently ... Hmm

I seem to have seen the game a bit differently to many on here
at 08:58 7 Mar 2021

Yes, it was crap but did none of you notice that we were trying to play in a completely different way to 'normal'? I mentioned this on here at half time but the instructions were clearly to get the ball forward as quickly as possible, not as in a hoof, but to the feet.

The players struggled with it, I mean they are so in the habits ingrained in them. Even the opening kick off for the first time for ages we passed it to someones feet!! Then, every kick off after each goal it was back to the old hoof it into touch Rugby style.

Cook had to go with an unchanged side after the three wins and it will be interesting who is selected Tuesday when it is 'his' selection. I wonder whether he will bring Matheson in as full backs need to get forward. Maybe move Chambers into the centre. There will probably be a few who will be given a rest.

Once he gets his team playing his way I reckon it will be good to watch. I am not as pessimistic as a lot of you and feel some of our squad will really improve. Not all, and there will be new faces, but he has to get the current lot 'retrained".

Hold on for the ride!

It seems obvious to me ...
at 14:00 6 Mar 2021

... that Cook is already stamping his mark on the team. We are trying to get the ball forward far quicker than in the past. For a bunch of players used to tippy tapping it around it isn't coming naturally .... yet.

Patience everyone.

Wow ... A big thanks to everyone who has ever recommended this on various threads discussing Series' to watch. Only just got to it and just finished Season 2 ... Absolutely outstanding. The plot, the acting, cinematography, and soundtrack. What a rollercoaster. Brilliant.

Get on it if you haven't yet.
According to my ifollow the game on Saturday is a Midnight kick off ...
