MAD - I think that's one of the reasons he was brought in. He's a leader, motivator and all round positive influence on the dressing room, but also in with the players so can spot any signs of trouble early on.

Keeping the dressing room together when things aren't going well is key and I think it was a smart move by Robbo to pit someone on the inside he can rely on.
StD - it does rather feel as if there are a lot of cling-ons - how many do you reckon?

Have we got one to take them through getting their kit on?
Considering the club made a big song and dance about signing number 4 welcome back Darius in the summer was expecting him to have some game time, not another backroom staff.

MAD - I am trusting that Joe and the board have one in place. I haven't seen it myself. Call it optimism.

Train, are you saying Charles is there to effectively cut off any changing room mutiny/descent?

At least you’ve found some value in him then 😉
Silk, the plan that we certainly have to survive and come back from it (your reference to L2), where is it? Have we missed an article?

MR has seen the problem of all our players in the last ten mins or so all drop back so no-one is upfield to pass to, now he has to change it so we don't put other teams on the front foot

Is Charles paid as a player or a coach? I think bringing him on for the last 10 minutes (if fit) would really help organise us and encourage the team to hold on. In the same way it's noticeable that when Palmer goes off, we struggle. Not just for his footballing ability, but the presence and effect on the players around him.

The Fleetwood first goal came from our attack!!! We continuously pass back and sideways and this ultimately cost us

Second big frustration was the late subs. Pressley and Chislett for Palmer and McCormick clearly weakened our attacking threat at a time we should have been trying to go for a winner. I know they were planned before the equaliser but surely we could/should have changed them after the goal went in. Some comments that Palmer and McCormick were tired but they had combined for an excellent goal just 5 minutes earlier. I also think if they are fit enough to do 85 mins they can probably manage the rest of the game.

Rib - I think Darius was a smart signing. He's there to head off any problems in the changing room, like those that happened under previous managers and ended with players bleating to Joe about how unhappy they were. This squad isn't immune from that despite what Robbo says, you just have to look at Ayoub and Ollie's relationship to see we have potential problems.

They will increase under the pressure of the next run of poor results over Christmas.
I found a couple of things pretty frustrating yesterday. First that we don't seem to have any idea how to break down teams that don't play out from the back and allow us to press them/win the ball high. Our best performances this season have been against teams that play that way - Oxford, Lincoln, Crewe. But against more direct teams we don't seem to know what to do. Generally create little, concede a scrappy goal and only then start playing with more intent. We look better when games get stretched/open up a bit but we're also more likely to concede then. It's a bit of a problem and one we don't seem to be getting any better at solving. Certainly 2 of our next 3 opponents (Cheltenham and Wycombe) won't give us many opportunities to press them high so it's a challenge we'll face again soon.

None of the goals we conceded this week were due to the lack of gnarled midfielders. The stats from yesterday showed that the game was even. We slightly shaded the wonderfully named duels as well. The Fleetwood second was due to good play by them rather than any fault by us.

We generally share possession and sometimes shade it.
We dropped 2 points because Fleetwood aren’t a relegation side whereas Crewe for example are, we could do with a couple of gnarled midfielders on loan to toughen up the team if we want to stay up. Not sure if Woodyard is supposed to be the defensive midfielder in front of the back four but we need someone to do that role better.

Great to see visual spectacle of Jump up and Down if you love the Dons.🎵🎵🎵 Brings back “Knees up mother Brown” crazy on terraces. We need to attract younger fans, and football is only part of the package. We are an aged fan base but it is beginning to turn. More fans, family children or otherwise all good, more money better players, better football. I’m sure someone in here was not enthused about our Guiesley “smallest Mexican wave ever” but the 6 and 9 year old I took yesterday would have enjoyed any movement even possibly bowel! German visual spectacle would be great to see and would be enjoyed by full of energy youngsters. I would love to see the whole stadium rock.

If you can’t stand up when you love the Dons stick a hand up✋
The whole rainbow thing was badly managed (what a shock) but does anyone think we dropped two points because a lot of bits of card were put out in the stadium? You can be a football club and a community and social asset at the same time.

Darius helps with the coaching I believe. A player coach.

Other than being a journeyman looking for his last paycheck.
League 2 is just as brutal. Look at Scunthorpe

Whilst none of us want to see us get relegated I do not think we are blind to the prospect. The thing is though that some of us do not see relegation as the world-ending disaster as others do. If it happens then it happens and we will come back just like other clubs have done.

What would be a disaster is if we spend money we do not have and still get relegated which is also a possibility. We have a budget to ensure we endure as a club and we certainly have a plan to not only survive L2 but to come back from it.
We are a struggling 1st division football club I'm sure most supporters want to put our energy into football before rainbow day. As we all know there is no pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Though there could be relegation t the end of the season.

I wonder why that Robson Kanu is still without a club? Maybe injuries. He could still do a decent job at professional level
