Really disappointing especially as large crowd and terrestrial tv. I know selection restricted by lack of availability but so little quality, just work rate. I just can't imagine how we'll cope if we somehow get promoted. However, the last two games demonstrate the futility of not strengthening this transfer window (assuming we don't). Maybe these two games will convince MM and ME to add some creativity, pace and a backup striker with the ability to score goals.

Why oh why do we continue to play Luke Hyam...not an ounce of class..not an ounce of vision, not a clue about how to link play....somebody tell him that the only way you pressure a defence or a midfield is to be at least 40% positive...such a very frustrating player. Couldnt play a forward pass all night.

Pretty poor game. Feel we resorted to long ball and although Lawro's commentary annoyed me he was right to point how often we passed back to Bart. 2 games in a row where we have failed to impress but hopefully this is our blip done and it might even alert Mick to the fact that we don't have any backup for upfront, definitely not worth persevering with the Badger!

Awful game. Bring on Millwall!

Disappointed. Not so much in the score line, which is quite respectable given the opposition.
More disappointed in the way they went to pieces after the goal.
Disappointed in all the high balls, and on such a windy day too.
Disappointed in the sloppy passing.
Disappointed in the lack of any test on their keeper.
Disappointed in Hyam and McGoldrick.
Not so disappointed in Mick who probably did the best he could with such a bare bones squad. Maybe an argument Mings should have started?
At least it's 'only' the cup and Millwall looks a good place to recover the form.

I thought that Bru once again showed that he is worthy of a starting berth on a regular basis. At least he demands the ball and is prepared to look for a forward pass. Sadly poor Hyam is looking bereft of ideas at present. The squad looks a little stretched at present and given the illnesses and possible injuries we will be picking up, there must be some thought to increasing the squad numbers. Both strikers look like they could do with a rest and the midfield still lacks creativity.

Another consecutive hugh dissappointment. Little skill and a lackluster performance in front of the TV cameras. Apart from Bru and Hunt - and Ambrose in the first half, the whole team were again quite amateurish. McGoldrick really must stop this selfish trend he has adopted in his frustration about not scoring. If he is not working in partnership with Murph, we are in trouble. 4 - 0 v Millwall Saturday is what is needed or else warning bells wil really start ringing - again!

I am not sure why the forum seems to have imploded and gone into meltdown about how awful we supposedly were last night.
I thought we were unlucky to be losing at half time and that the first half performance was very good. We competed well and passed the ball as good as, if not better than Southampton.
Second half Southampton upped their tempo and looked in control without making us look silly.
Overall I didn't think it was a match to be disappointed about. Ambrose played well and was far more effective than Anderson normally is and Bru looked a class act. If we play like we did in the first half against most of the teams in our league we will win comfortably.
