Its no point mentioning the goals, what can I say, first one soft, I cant be bothered to criticise the cb's as on the verge of actually feeling sorry for them. I was right behind the second one in the bobby robson lower and it had goal written all over it.
What dissapoints me further is the fact pj stated in the summer he wouldnt rely on the loan market after last season. 3 out of our 4 midfielders tonight wernt under contract with the club therefore no probable long term future here. How does Hyam feel looking at that, or Drury? Saying that, I thought Luongo was the best player in blue tonight.
I went expecting what I saw and I doubt I was the only one in the crowd feeling like that.
What we need to now is what we havent had at this stage in the last few seasons, we have to grind a win out, doesnt matter how or against who, town just need to grab a win from somewhere.
Can i see them doing that in the immediate future? I'm struggling there. I'm worried but not to the point I think pj should go now. But make no mistake, I think tonight started the clock ticking.

Get rid now,get ur finger out ur pocket Evans and stump up the cash for a decent manager.
The players just dont want to play for Jewell and he cant attract decent signings either.bring in Redknapp or Mick McCarthy to sort this club out from top to bottom

I have no confidence in Jewell to get us out of this and he should be removed immediately. Problem is when it comes to appointing managers Evans record is pretty poor and I have no confidence in hime either.

Jewell had passion but that appears to be sadly lacking now, he has the demeanour of a 'spent force'.
Someone else said it, the clock has started ticking tonight, is Jewell up to turning this around? I fear the answer is no!
We will have to wait and see, but I think if we hit mid October in this situation then it's time for ME to act.

On the plus side, I was impressed by N'Daw; he's a big unit (something this side desperately lacks) but also has a good touch and an eye for a pass. I suppose you don't get to play for the clubs he has played for without having something about you, and I was pleasantly surprised by his footballing ability. In general I also thought our backline looked more organised than of late, and apart from the unlucky own goal we looked reasonably solid. Interesting to note though how none of our defenders seemed overly keen to pass the ball back to Loach in tight situations, and often preferred to turn and hoof. Coaching or a lack of confidence? Difficult to say but worrying nonetheless. Going forwards we created some good chances, but yet again failed to take any of them. Taylor, Martin and Chopra is two into three; it just doesn't go. Chopra looks bang out of sorts, but then had little to work with. Martin is hopeless on either wing but especially on the right, whilst Taylor needs to play centrally to be at his most dangerous. Add in JET (when on form, our most skillful player) and Murphy (the only one with any strength or aerial ability) and it is clear that Jewell doesn't have a clue as to his best formation, and the team is suffering as a result.
Where we go from here is anybody's guess. Failure to beat Charlton at home must surely be the end of Jewell; as has been the norm this season he just sat on his hands and looked impotent all evening. It is clear that selection-wise he is again floundering in the dark, and by the look of the players this evening they don't believe in what they are doing either. I absolutely do not believe in changing managers on a whim, and for me 4 managers in 7 seasons is a damning indictment of those in charge of our club. However when fans and players alike lose confidence in the management then a change may be the only alternative. ITID. COYB.

Other than Paul Taylor, and the odd goal from the bench from Jason Scotland I see very little goal threat in our side. Most teams pushing for top six will be looking for a good complement of goals from 2 strikers and at least one midfield player I cannot see Chopra getting 15 goals and is Lee Martin capable of even 6? I like Loungo and I thought he was our best player tonight by a long way - that sums it up really a 19 year old loanee showing the way. I also just cannot see goals from our midfield.
We really deserve no better if we miss the type of chances we had tonight and continue to leak goals with the same regularity as last season.
Our crossing was also appalling and not just tonight. Edwards and Cresswell need to get forward more as they are potentially more dangerous than those that occupy the wide spaces in front of them.
Unfair to judge N'Daw on one performance, no doubt bags of experience and whilst I thought he was OK he hardly stamped his authority on the game for me.
