Great point. Well done to the defence and Bart man for an excellent display!! I'll look forward to next Saturday as will other Blues fans. Bring on the Bees! BLUE ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really hard earned point,very well fought. Bart,Berra, Skuse and McG played well; indeed I thought McG was MOM. Shame about the non-penalty; may have changed the match. A very good February after the Derby disaster. Negatives from today; Tommy S not match ready, Bishop's form not good enough to get on bench, Moore nowhere near ready for Championship, Kenlock disappointing. BUT VERY PLEASED TO HOLD THE BUDGIES!

A good point, hard fought; we didn't do enough to win it but frankly neither did Norwich - a draw the fair result.
We looked a bit better when Knudsen went to wing back and Smith came into the back three. I don't think Sears is really a front man, but Keiffer Moore didn't look the part when he came on either. Spence looked really good going forward, but occasionally lost his man going back and was sometimes beaten a bit too easily. We do look better when we pass the ball and don't just hoof it upfield.
Still, plenty of grounds for optimism. I'm almost at the point where I look forward to the next match with excitement rather than foreboding! It must be nearly time to start trying out fringe players/youngsters, especially where we know loan players will not convert to permanent staff - like Lawrence for example.

Should have been a penalty first half. Once that wasn't given, a great performance from Bart to maintain the point. Nice to see an opposition team able to take as many poor corners as we do!

Watched this on Sky, and while not as painful as previous TV appearances, we were still over-run for most of the game and did very well to nick a point. I still feel that the barometer for how the team will play is whether or not Skuse is in the team : he doesn't have a positive thought in him, which is no doubt why McCarthy loves him so much : a man after his own heart.
Apart from the glaring error for their goal, I thought Bart was excellent ; McGoldrick had some nice touches ; Spence put in a super cross for our goal ; Knudsen took it well ; and Smith looked on pace when he came on. As for everyone else, very very poor. Chambers and Ward were both playing, apparently, but I'm not convinced either touched the ball ; Berra is past it ; Sears was a spare part ; Huws was anonymous ; Diagouraga and Moore when brought on might as well have stayed on the bench for all that they contributed : Moore seemed to crock himself on his first jump and looks what he is - someone who couldn't get into the team in the Conference.

Daley. Agree with most of your report except Smith. He looked like he had just jumped off the operating table. Slow and cumbersome IMO.

jonas could become a legend and reminds me of Veno. He's 100% and like Veno has powerful left peg. I'd like to see him take freekicks.
As for McG, he was back to his best just needs to score. However he needs a strike partner but not sure Moore is ready and would have preferred Pitman at the end.

No complaints from me. A resolute performance to suit a game played at a ground that has few fond memories. Okay, we did not do enough to win but it's another point towards safety. Pity that refs are not consistent about the tugging of shirts. Thought Skuse was our best player in midfield . Pity his detractors cannot see it but hey ho who cares about them.

As probably one of the biggest critics of MM and wanting him gone a while back he has actually transformed the team into something more than a hoofball side. This was probably because he had no choice with injuries etc but at least there is an effort to play football. Thought McG was superb and some other very good performances. Bart should maybe have done better with the goal but certainly made up for it with superb saves, is he the best in the division? Can't think of any one better. So from total gloom and despair I can at least have some optimism for the rest of the season but still would like a new manager
