    I’m not having that mate. We aren’t missing chances. It’s all long shots.

    4,500 away fans having their day now, massive chorus of ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’.

    That’s away. He’s toast mate. You lose the away fans first, you are fully finished.

    You seriously saying winning a 3rd of our games at this level is t a shambles? Come on mate.

    **** off. “Or I dont go back” lost count of how many times you’ve used that bullshit line.

    That’s what I was saying. Away fans rarely have negative stuff to say. Normally fully behind everything. But singing “you don’t know what you’re doing” to him tells me his days are certainly numbered

    I was willing to give Ross another chance this year but he again is proving to me that he is a terrible manager especially offensively. Even if we turn this round I want him gone because he ain’t going to take us up and the longer we are down here the more we get stuck.

    I agree it's not good enough but I don't think it's necessarily **** all over the manager bad. I really don't think a lot of our players are as good as people presumably think they are judging by what they expect of them.

    Oh aye the players are short, they are not incapable of winning 2/3 of the games short though mate, not a chance.

    By percentages, that would mean there are 16 teams better than us in the league.

    I know that’s too simplistic, but it gives a picture of how unacceptable we are.

    Sounds like were having a few chances now. Might grab a point but it's just simply not enough. We have struggled to consistently win games at this level. Our recruitment was **** in the summer. We may not have had huge funds but we should have played the loan market. We've had a lack of pace for years and never addressed it. We have technically good players yes but are unable to stretch teams because of a lack of pace.

    A goal now would make it interesting, and you could be right.

    I’d never deny anyone their opinion mate, but the evidence is beyond damning now.

    I was actually behind him until we started debating on here midweek then I thought ‘hang on’.

    The results are poor, but beyond that the performances are dire. Even when we’ve won we’ve often been ****.

    Should have lost to oxford and Rotherham home and Ipswich away in reality.

    If we had, he’d be gone already.
