Just watched some proper football - our u17 England team. Wonder what all our over the hill squad players would make of it?

Trebor - IMO we have a crap squad (with maybe 4/5 exceptions).

On Tuesday I actually thought Soares and trotter were a potentially successful deep midfield partnership that allowed more freedom to the players ahead of them.

To be fair, that's the only time I can remember Trotter making a run. (Unless it was Soares, of course!) Trotter did end the Rotherham match in the central attacking midfielder role at which point we scored two goals, which may be what convinced NA to try it today. I think the theory is that his physical presence can support a lone striker – he was pushed up at Blackburn too when McDonald was totally isolated. Only one problem: I can't remember him ever winning a header.

Treebs - Yeah, so due to the players played out of position we effectively played a 4 3 3 formation rather than a 4 2 3 1 formation. Sorry, but Neal has lost it as far as I'm concerned.

DW: think NA is probably broadly aware, hence his criticism of us in recent weeks.

Trebor-last week you were praising Trotter for making a run to draw defenders away frim Taylor. The guy is a total liability and was probably just running away from a position he might be passed to. I couldn't believe it today when their defender screwed up and Trotter was left with a clear run on goal. He visibly shat himself (oh yes and he can't run).

Cody was the only player trying to gee the team up today after we conceded. Feel very sorry for him and can’t imagine he’ll be thinking this has been a good move for him to date. Absolutely fed up with our cloudy-piss-dull approach to football this season it’s sucking all motivation out of me. Plymouth had won just one game before today and yes we were “the better team” and yes our players are all better than their players but they worked hard and wanted it and we played it safe safe safe til I fell a fucking sleep. Losing games is inevitable but it’s been almost a year of this tediousness now with too few bright moments like Tuesday.

Luckily I think that might be the last game I can actually make in 2017. Maybe Bury away.
Does anyone know if NA either reads this forum or is kept abreast of its content? He really should know.

Trebor first look in since the game. I was about to make the same point . Hartigan for Trotter and we would probably have won it.

NA talking claptrap AGAIN. He made one change, ho,ho,ho. He took Forrester out of his central support role and gave it to donkey Trotter. Lots more but it will annoy me to go on. I hope Trotter and Soares are at least paying to play.

And playing a defensive midfielder with no pace in an attacking midfield role was s complete and utter diabolical decision.

Voice: we did to start with, but with shifted personnel – Forrester to out wide instead of Kaja and Trotter in the attacking midfielder role vacated by Forrester.

Interesting BBC Radio Kent commentators were talking about Gillingham’s loss today and how they are struggling because of a lack of goal scorer since Cody Mcdonald left them. The commentators were genuinely saying what a prolific goal scorer he was for them (as well as Dack) and how much they miss his goals. In which case surely he can’t have become a bad player overnight or are we just not playing the right tactics to get Mcdonald scoring for us???

How can Neal say that we played the same system as in the last 2 games? He's taking the fans for mugs.

The predictability was the most disappointing thing. So easy to see in advance. Echoes of the worries from seeing our friendly v Watford, from seeing him stockpile defensive midfielders – this season has been so predictable.

Anyone actually surprised we shit the bed today after two good results? From the moment I saw the team - set up not to lose with three defensive midfielders against the bottom team who were winless in 12 - I knew we wouldn't win. So much for Neal's favourite word 'brave'. Then he parrots (selective) stats and blames his players. Yes, to a certain extent. But all the players are yours. You brought in Liam Trotter - the wage thief Bolton fans warned us he would be - along with fellow midfield bedblockers Abdou and Soares, who are stifling the development of Hartigan and Egan and whose salaries would have been better spent on a target man we desperately need. The club need to be proactive if a change is needed - and that means acting before January so that any new man has the transfer window to work with. I hope it doesn't come to that, but I'm seeing Groundhog Day performances too often from this squad.

And I agree with all you have suggested. Most of either too blinkered or dare not say anything. Great shame
But it was Tom Elliott chasing a ball over the top and showing his pace. What happened to the Tom Elliott we knew and loved: back to goal with long balls descending onto his head?

And why Bazza didn't score a goal
I'm still waiting for the person, who thinks the team selection today was wise, to stick their head above the parapet - OK, it will get shot off but be brave!

everyone I spoke to before the game forecast 0-0 or a 0-1 loss having heard the team
Speaking of corners, why do we have ZERO players who take the risk (majority of balls) that are overhit or knocked to rear of penalty area. Still waiting for an answer to this conundrum, from people who intuit the astute tactical reasoning behind nixing this masterstroke of obviousness.
