    Wasn't there and only saw last 40 minutes on tele. That was awful enough. Spoke to a couple who attended who confirmed my impression.

    Okay , we just concentrate on the league and staying up although the cup could have been a positive and lucrative diversion.

    Some players today just didn't seem up for it or knew what they should be doing. I can't believe Colin and his team hadn't given clear instructions. That being the case they should be shown the door ASAP.

    The TV pundits for the Spurs game had a laugh about the attendance, or lack of it. FFS do they really think an 11.30 am kick off on any day of the week is good for any fan? Home or away? Total lack of consideration for fans.

    All in all a sh!te day for City. I'm sure Colin will get it right next week at the Wurzels. They are not enjoying life at present and have a tough replay at Fleetwood after playing us.

    Wasn't there either and watched the whole of the game on the box. Absolutley bloody terrible and possibly the worst overall team performance of the season to the point that it was embarrassing.

    Apart from Bamba, no one came out of the game with any credit. Huws and Pilks in particular in midfield were appalling and only Ralls seemed to have any spark about his game. Richards and Bennett looked out of their depth against tricky wingers and I'm not sure what Halford was trying to do on the pitch.

    We couldn't string two passes together and Fulham toyed with us when they had the ball - we had no idea how to get it off them. When it did break to us we immediately gave it away again.

    I don't know what we are going to do up front unless Zohore rerally blossoms because yesterday was an epic failure. Lambert looked laboured and Kadeem had no support when he tried to get forward.

    I hope by bringing back Peltier, Gunnar, Whitts, Hoilett and Zohore into the side for the Wurzels we'll get back on track because yesterday showed we have few options up our sleeves when they are out.

    Most of us recognise what we need to add to the side and I'm sure Warnock does as well - it can't happen soon enough.

    I was one of the mugs sat in the Canton. Joke of a game. Bennett was ripped apart. Huws has zero flare and we are desperate for a striker!!! Ricky Lambert is past it now, too slow and nackered after 20 minutes of running.

    I watched it on TV. Very one sided. The little possession we had was wasted with nobody with the composure to put their foot on the ball. It didn't help that there didn't appear to be any structure, with no out ball (other than to go long).

    Halford looked unfit and was walking for much of the game. 1st half he looked out of place as part of 3 CBs (I think) and in the 2nd was more in midfield (gunnars role?) but not effective at all. Maybe harsh given he hasn't had any time with the squad and came into a makeshift team.

    Harris for me is more of an impact player than a starter. Noone showed a few flashes when he came on but was isolated with no link up.

    Two wingers, an out and out 9 and a 10 needed. I would forego the keeper for the time being.

    As you say sparkey, hopefully the return of the usual starters will settle things down for the wurzles game. We're in trouble of they don't.

    Some observations from me:

    Lambert still looks unfit

    Pilkington is useless - cannot control a ball or pass it accurately

    No change was made to double up on Fredericks after he first went past Bennett

    Did anybody try & get Huws in the game; I felt sorry for him

    Halfords debut was one of the worst I've seen

    Fulham were allowed to play at their own pace as there was no pressing at all

    But good to see Harris get 20 minutes. Hope he gets more chances.

    I thought Jazz Richards and Emyr Huws were both diabolical, however it was nothing more than i expected.

    I knew NW was going to rest some players and I wasn't expecting too much. I wasn't expecting the dross I watched.
    I wasn't impressed by the lack of commitment or drive. The cottagers were in control from start to finish, our goal a mere blip. :(

    Yes Richards was poor but would have helped if K Harris had stuck to one wing and not roam around all over the place so they could have worked together.

    I'm not forgetting though that Fulham were good and maybe City should have played the same team they did v Villa as a better warm up for Bristol & kept the momentum gping.

    Still feel Huws has a lot to offer and would like to see him given a league game and allowed to play his natural game. I do feel though he is on NW's hit list to go

    Even headless chickens running around would show more intent and desire than this lot.

    On this showing I can't see why we signed Halford but needs time to get match fit.

    Kadeem Harris tries hard but I don't think he is Championship quality.

    Morrison always has errors in him.

    Pilkington and Noone have had enough chances they need to go.

    Bennett is a wing back and needs help from a midfielder.

    I don't know what Emyr Huws is meant to be. Looks completely disinterested.

    Major surgery needed on this squad. At least 6 of the squad simply not good enough.

    On the plus side, Bamba was putting in his usual effort and the early kick off meant we didn't waste the whole day.

    Warnock and his band of merry men laughing didn't help my anger either>>>>>>>>>>get the fk out of my club you cu.nt.s

    Have to agree there aber. Apart from once or twice when the cameras were on him, Warnock looked disinterested in the result.

    That might be a false impression, but the guy didn't display the right body language during the game and his lack of action regarding substitutions was poor.

    If he really wanted to win that game he should have thrown on Zohore for Lambert and O'Keefe for Huws before the hour was up. Connolly for Halford should have happened at half time - Halford seemed to have no idea what he was supposed to do on the pitch and at least Connolly can pass a ball.

    Bit unfair on Warnock Aber. His job is to keep us up and build a base to move onwards and upwards next season.

    If that means letting the cup go this year then so be it. Notwithstanding the stupid kick off time in a Sunday, the fact that less than 5k City fans could be bothered to turn up indicates many others felt the same way.

    Warnock's track record shows he is certainly not a clown although I agree he could have stirred things up with positive verbal and body language.

    However, as I read it, some of those selected yesterday may well have been playing games for their City future. The fact that many failed to perform suggests they are likely to be out of the door fairly soon.

    I don't think its unfair bfb dude, I don't give 2 fks about staying up that wasn't on offer on the day the fa cup was, now you may say its a distraction from our main aim, well maybe but im more into carry on good form into the next game type football........we looked like a bunch of boys against men because of the way the clown set up his stall, now im sure who will benefit from this boost of confidence and its not gonna be us>>>>>>>yes going down is one thing but showing disrespect 2 a competition we hold in such high regard is not fking on and I for one think it fking stunk for them 5 thousand people that did turn up in support of the team.

    Aber - we have an interesting FA Cup history but 3 finals and 1 win in 90 years does not make it glorious. Yes, we have taken some good scalps over the years but rarely progressed very far, particularly in the last few years. Losing to Shrewsbury at home was just as embarrassing. I'm not putting down your enthusiasm but the facts speak for themselves. <ok>

    its the only thing we have that separates us from our welsh rivals dude so its fking glorious 2 me brother >>>>>>>>>and its definitely something we should fight for every season.......not just bow out with no consideration for the paying public, that was fking pathetic way 2 play end of....and yes if we were lucky we may have had a big team in the next round giving us much needed funds for some extra quality players that would take us up the league not hover above the trap door.

    all in all we fking lost and it made us look very short of pace, confidence and quality all over the park........I don't blame no one bar Warnock for that performance, so lets see him lift the players in time for the red red robins go bob bob bobbing along game........coz he fking needs 2 kick some arse including his own <ok>


    anyways its only opinions everyone is entitled 2 voice em at present>>>not for long, but for now we can <laugh>

    I think the fans (or lack of them) showed our enthusiasm for the cup, it was always going to be, if we win fine, if not no problem.

    1st home cup tie I've missed in the last 7 years. No interest in it this year.
