    I don't like Johnson at all, and would like him to be replaced as soon as we're promoted, but I'm confident that once he brings in the players that he wants, to compliment his preferred system, there'll be a considerable improvement :emoticon-0105-wink:

    Really? His passing was awful in the final third tonight! And, had he played fir us, he’d have been sent off for his first foul

    In fact I’d even go as far as humiliating the 3 ****ers we have upfront and wouldn’t even put them in the bench. Play ball to feet and try either Curry up top or one of the decent wingers, Diamond, Gooch, Maguire or even Mcgeady would be miles better. At least they’d want the ball and better still can lay it off or turn and shoot.
    i hate the pryle of ****s.

    You can see straight away that LJ has got us pressing and a bit fitter already. He is obviously finding out about the players still as it's been stop start since he came in with the covid outbreak etc. If we can ship a few out this month and get a few decent players in we will do ok imo.

    Glad it never cost me a tenner to watch that, poor game imo. A point is ok, better than losing. How **** is this league though, Hull looked just as ordinary as us but thought they broke a lot better with the ball. Need our lot to be injected with 50 bags of haribo's each to get some energy going, really slow play on our part. Still, @C19RK73 got his pizza and that's what counts.

    I think we need creativity in midfield more.

    What good is a striker if we've got no one to provide for him?

    Made a mistake and tried to make up for it,
    All goalies make mistakes like everyone else but it gets highlighted easier.
    What more could you want from him ?

    Aye I'd try that again, he looked a completely different player there. Play O'Nien there and it's a waste of a good CM, play Power there and he suddenly looks better.

    The answer is YES. Graham is the worst player we have ever had, and by some distance, a lot more distance than he ever covers, how he gets picked I will never understand.

    May as well play with 10 men rather than any of our strikers. Max Power played his best 45 minutes at right back but went missing once or twice. Point was a fair result in the end but they were there for the taking second half

    Great spot by the ref for the challenge on Leadbitter, never a pen. But **** me he was utter gash throughout and the Lino on the side of the camera never even bothered joining in

    To be fair he's our top scorer so he does win a few, not enough but where would we be without his goals.

    Yeah but David Prutton seems to have an underlying hate for our club
