    This. "Nice lads that want to play for us" aren't always good enough.

    Squad needs scudding, embarrassingly bad.

    To be honest, I doubt KLD will be concerned in the slightest sat in the stands. He knows the shower of **** we are. He knows we have bog standard players, he knows we were a premier league club a few seasons ago. To him, us sat mid table in leauge one is pretty much a blank canvas for him.

    I'm as excited as anyone for this take over but the thought of having to endure this type of game over and over during a national pandemic is terrifying.

    I really want to be realistic and patient etc. But these lot make breathing look difficult at times and it's bloody painful to watch

    I would obviously prefer we won tonight but the silver lining is that KLD has now seen how bad this lot are and now him and Speakman have a few months to plan how we attack the summer without a salary cap.

    Serious question marks over recruitment in January mind, that left back is proving to be the wrong move for both parties, Winchester has flattered to deceive to say the least, haven’t seen Stewart yet but for a the data talk in the podcast... might be being a bit harsh cos it’s still really fresh idk

    The bloke who identified this left back is hopefully nowhere near our summer recruitment

    The pair of the goalkeepers are absolutely lifting. Release them now, they're a liability.

    I make that 9 points dropped from GK errors since the start of Jan.

    Massively underwhelmed with this David Brent impersonator so far, **** selection, no idea on his tactics and the results are on par with Jurassic Parkinson

    I want to be patient and part of me (a small part) does believe that he will come good but I have to question how the team look at time.

    It is so similar to Jack Ross levels of confidence when we get a goal up. So far it's a case of he talks the talk and little else. I will say that some of the players he has inherited are just really, really poor.

    This squad have shown that in patches they can play well the problem for the majority of them isn’t ability at this level it is mentality.

    They have zero mental resilience to dig in when the going gets tough. The mental fragility means they can’t respond to any set back, see games out.

    Developing tactics/approaches is all well and good but until we have changed mindsets we ain’t going anywhere.

    I’ll give him time but I’m sick of his sound bites already

    I know he's only a young lad but he looks really poor in the 2 games so far. I'd have mcfadzen back in ASAP and he's not great. But Hume is out for a while so no other options

    Being taken over is like a kiss of death at the moment <laugh>

    We crumbled in front of the new owner, Burnley missed out on the quarter finals and Derby dropped into a relegation spot.

    Let's call the whole thing off.
