    Yep, spot on post. All very depressing

    Last night we were just spineless, I know we all said it at the start of the season- the midfield is horrible, plain horrible

    Jokes aside my old cocker, two poor sides out there last night. The difference was your players had some bollox and fight, ours didn't.
    Don't be getting your Championship Route Planner out just yet mate <cheers>

    For the second game in a row every single player was poor. Even our POTY-in-waiting, Big Josh. If Konsa is being flogged off it won't do his sale value much good if he's played out of position.

    Williamson wasn't there. He doesn't attend games.

    Yep, a lovely mixture of the inept - Fox, the past it - Jackson, and the lazy and bone idle - Ajose and Lookman.

    A winning combination.

    I had high hopes when JJ was playing DM and still think there could be something there. Unfortunately when it's teamed with Crofts it becomes all too easy for the opposition.

    We have been saying that all season. Every team in League One has outgunned us in midfield this season- Peterboro passed us off the park- even MKD and Chesterfield had better midfields than ours. It is so bad its laughable.

    Thora Hird would get a game in our midfield, and she has been dead 10 years.

    Even when we win the ball we don't know what to do with it. There were times last night when Fox was given so much space that it seemed they wanted us to pass to him because they knew they'd get it back straight away.

    No ball playing... players. JJ maybe has potential as a DM if he has legs around him, such is his passing ability.

    i watched the stream of it. p1ss poor really. we have no real game plan and the players who have come in for those injured are so weak. we'll finish this season in the lowest position we've ever finished.

    not sure what to make of KR. no manager has a chance under this regime. would usually appreciate a young manager being given a chance but he seems to have bought their spiel about how they really are trying to do their best for the visitors of se7 - so for that, i kinda want him sacked too.

    Never heard of that idea, asking players to write down what's wrong. Like putting them on the naughty chair. Can you imagine Lennie or Curbs doing that? Me neither.

    If Curbs was still in charge (and after the last two team performances) most of the players, Big Meg and Dills excepted..... would now be parading two ar5es after Curbs had ripped them new ones!

    My thoughts on Lookman and why he seems to be playing badly...

    As I see it, when Holmes was playing on the right the opposition had to worry about both flanks and so could only afford to double up on Mola..... with Holmes out the opposition can afford to double/triple up on Mola because they know there is no threat on the right wing.

    Me, I would like to see Regan Charles-Cook given another go in centre mid as his inbred confidence and young legs could give us the added threat in the middle.... I'm not sure why he hasn't been given a chance earlier in the season? perhaps injury?

    I think Lookman is suffering from a basic lack of motivation now. Watching him closely v Posh and Millwall, his body language and low work rate screams out that he is saving himself from injury. His agent would have been keeping up to date on what clubs are offering him to sign for them. Why would he put his body on the line in a crunching 50/50 on Boxing Day when Meire has already told Rich Cawley that he is "highly likely" to leave in January?

    The clubs a shambles and young players need guidance. Lookman looked lost behind Magennis on Wednesday.

    Perhaps the Scouse doesn't know where to play him so asked the 19 year old Belgian genius who then tried a few formations on Football Manager 2017?

    I agree. For a 19-year-old he hasn't half seen a lot of managers come and go, that's before you start to count the assistant managers and first-team coaches.
