Another draw and one point, two points lost, thats four points dropped over the last two games which would have put us in a far better position and set to climb away from the danger zone opposed to wallowing in it.

Huffed and puffed but absolutely no quality in the final ball. Ajose as we know is an excellent finisher but the rest of the team once again simply not good enough to create chances for him, the crosses and cut backs were all dealt with far too comfortably.

Ince outstanding again, what a signing he has been, he has now deservedly been man of the match in every home game he's played in (bar the one where it should have been Ince but the announcer messed up and said it was Barry).

Still just in touch but we need to start scoring, maybe 50 points will be enough....

The man of the match announcement is now pre-recorded and has been since Ince was signed.
It seems our illustrious or maybe infamous director of football was there today and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank him for his valuable input into player recruitment, tactical advice and team building morale.

Posted this a.m. that it was pointless pumping in high balls to their tall defenders so what did we do - yep! So anybody else who was there - what did Colkett do? Ditto Ajose, ditto Thomas.
Sadly once again the game revealed what has been known all season - the players as a unit are simply not good enough and the hangman has tightened the noose and has one hand on the trap door lever.
Please join me at Walsall on Monday for the official wake.

glasred 6:20pm Fri 14 Apr 17

Huffed and puffed , worked hard but little quality up front. We looked very lightweight .
Four games played now, won two drawn two....scored 3 goals in the process. Not strong enough up front so it will be difficult to get the results when we can only score one goal a game at best.
Bring on Walsall, there is still a chance but we have to be more clinical up front and I cant really see where that will come from.

Score: 1
Jib Jib 6:44pm Fri 14 Apr 17

Could it be a bold statement to suggest Ince is our best ever loan signing, or is the lack of quality in our team and the fact it's a poor league making him look a cut above?

Bit of both maybe but I can't think of another player I've enjoyed watching as much for a long time, and despite the poor season, watching him play has reminded me why I enjoy going to the County Ground, regardless of the result or league position.

Ince without doubt taking this role of his at a canter without having to worry about being stretched in any way. Simply a class and a league above, a star of the future indeed. I tip him as a future International player as long as he keeps his head straight. Massive potential and we are so lucky to witness him here in an STFC shirt. Privelidged for sure.

Wizard we have seen some good players in recent times, Luongo, Mason, Pritchard and Byrne as examples and all have all been sold for decent money, and all were good players, but none were as consistent, and none looked such a cut above League one as Ince does. Today he dragged the ball back 4 times I think then nutmegged their player with a simple pass. He also gets out of trouble in so many ways, like the right foot to left foot move that made their player fall over, also the lift over the top of the player sliding in. Will definitely be keeping an eye on his future, forget seeing him in a Town shirt next season he will be in the Championship at least next season, and rightly so. People can moan about loan signings but it's been quite a privilege watching him.

old town robin 8:28pm Fri 14 Apr 17

Many views expressed the same opinion as me, overall just not good enough, far too many loose balls, half hearted tackles, never really got the better of a dirty, physical team, who seemed to get the benefit from a truly shocking referee Sainsbury and a lineman that got more decisions wrong than he did right. The wind played a significant factor, that neither side managed to master. Very disappointing performances from far too many players that really need to be taking a good look at themselves andask if they truly believe they tried hard enough. Goddard in particular just not good enough, too easy pushed off the ball, hardly completed one decent pass to a red shirt, a non league player that runs around like a headless chicken trying to make up for being what he is, unfortunately for him he is playing at a level that he isn't going to get the time and space he needs to be effective. Not his fault, but no way should he be starting games.

Really making hard work of beating the drop, no one but themselves too blame, even if the ref might as well been wearing a yellow shirt and how they still had 11 at the end only he can explain, but of course made of teflon and unanswerable for some attrocious decisions.

We need a hard task master brought in as manager as soon as the season ends, somebody with b@lls of iron and a temper to match somebody who demands and commands respect and graft, toil, dedication, application and 100%+ commitment from the players, not a Kindergarten Kop somebody with a very high Bustard rating who breathes and spits rivets from the touchline, a huge dollop of passion, rather than this Politically Correct nicey nicey speil we get day in/day out.
A huge overdose of realism and reality, says it as it is and sees what we see, any takers ?
