    that would be my shout. i have no idea what role gooch is meant to be playing, but our midfield needs 3 players in it to get on top of this game

    We must be better than that in the second half.
    Very poor first half that.

    Love Leads but unfortunately he sets the tempo.
    Slow motion football.
    Need a rocket
    Get Gooch off for Diamond. Give McGeady a shake
    If it doesnt change would go three at the back

    We can only get better

    We are a much better side with Winchester in it. Leadbitter slows everything down completely.

    Very poor display after the high of Fratton Park.

    Need to start pressing higher up the pitch and get McGeady into the game. I would take Gooch and Maguire off for Diamond and maybe Stewart - let's see what he can do

    Our passing is poor a lot of the time even when their is no pressure ie Maguire to McGeady who was right in front of goal , McFadzean and Scowen are also guilty week in week out do they not do passing drills in training . Gooch has been a waste of a shirt today - he is not a right wingback or is he just filling a hole . Moaning over all to play to for let’s get in to them !!!

    I'd look to going 3 at the back tbh.

    Should never have been on the field. We never learn.

    Leadbitter cannot play in a midfield two when he is 100% fit let alone when he is about 60% fit

    I'm taking comfort from the fact that we played poorly during the first half, but did not concede.

    Must do better second half

    We'll get much better, had some chances, they'll not have the sub options we have I wouldn't have thought. All good haway the lads!
