Pig probably has a much lower shots to goals ratio than LTB, but LTB's pace and willingness to shoot from distance is drastically missed. In theory Jervis should be filling that gap (should have been Appiah but he's clearly finished on all fronts). The Jervis we were chasing and the one who turned up seem drastically different - maybe he's another being failed by the cosiness of selection and lack of training.

what annoys me about Jervis is that I've seen him duck a few times in the air and let the other guy win it.

Jervis steals a living playing football. Really deflating that we made him our number one target in the summer

I would love to see what Pinnock could do playing behind or off the two strikers. His passing is very good and feel it could be a good new role where he could set up chances for the front two.

£1 for a hire car is apparently a Nissan Qashqai :o

Never driven a car so big
LTB was a more accomplished all round player and more dangerous then Piggot. Think its a case of when we had Keds and Main. Main put them into the net regular yet Keds contributed with a few but always set up Main. Jervis would have been better for us if we had the Fox and the donkey front two.

The recruitment this season has a similar vibe to 2012. Wasted on dross no-one else wants. Sorry if it sounds harsh but its like no-one is playing for the shirt, doing the job they love, while we have to go out 9-5 working and ploughing our hard earned cash into watching a side low on quality and displaying dross each week

Jervis is presumably not allowed to play against his parent club Luton on Saturday

I'm sure MCormack is on a hefty wage in OZ. There would be plenty of takers for him if he decides to come back to the UK and plenty of sides who can offer more money

Disappointing if the board don't take action as we are in serious trouble of wrecking years of good work. TB should have gone in the summer of 2012, as should have Ardley this summer.

They took ages to sort out TB and we nearly dropped out of the league because of it. Same thing if Ardley remains in charge
Diddy - I would argue the Pig has a better finish than LTB (you only need to look at the bristol rovers game away last season and his open goal miss to be reminded of that). Although I agree we are missing his complete work ethic that LTB bought. As for Hanson he is certainly a better target man than what we had last year...which is no one.

The major issue is we a few players who are only here for the money and don't really give a damn
Seriously I would end the loan of Jervis in January if we can and try and find ourselves one that is more prolific even if we have to pay some money. E.G Ross McCormack is playing in the OZ LEAGUE.... don't know much about Oz league to compare but surly L1 is better?

Alex agree, they either aren't watching what the rest of us are or genuinely don't care about relegation. (Thinking this can be turned around comes under option A).

Don't think we really have poor players but we just don't have a striker like LTB who is a fox in the box with a bit of pace. Piggot isn't a prolific striker and Hanson isn't either. They are players who are the ones who produce the knock downs for that fox in the box to put away.

Get four new people on the DTB then who will give the FCB a harder time. We're not going to get anywhere moaning that they've accumulated too much power. Let's have a list of the responsibilities they should cede and to whom.

Minimum we should be getting considering where they are is a point and i'm sure there saying the same about us.
Yeh I agree Lurker, however I am still not convinced the board do and thus can only see a drastic change being made IF and when Ardley walks away.

Our only saving grace is there are also 7/ 8 other poor teams in our league including the likes of Gillingham who were absolutely awful when we played them. The fact we lost to 2 teams below us and the board didn't do anything suggests to me they won't as above, despite the fact that those games really our 6 pointers as is tonight!!
As for changes, we will struggle to offload the underperforming costly players in January so I'm guessing any signings will need to be on the cheap.

One thing I think a new manager brings is clarity as to what is the problem here. Personally I think we have some players who are passed their best but I would be interested to see what we'd get if those guys weren't in the comfort zone of perpetual selection regardless of performance and how others would do if given a fair chance.

The challenge we have can any other manager get anything better out of the players we have?? Or is it the simple fact the players are not following instructions because they are out of their depth. In which case are we going to be able to afford to terminate certain players contracts and get adequate replacements in January??

RE floodlights - didn't BT pay to upgrade our floodlights so our game could be on tv? They may well do the same for HB?
