A nice solid start from our new opening partnership in NZ. Shame I’ll need to turn in in half an hour or so.

Pleasant change from the football

I've always advocated keeping the analysis and measured criticism to forums such as these.

It does no good at the game itself.

Struggling with this style of football...
at 23:16 19 Nov 2019

I know your questions are rhetorical and that the gegenpress, when employed by coaches such as Klopp and Pochettino, with players of an elite calibre, can be mesmerising, but at this level, with this standard, it’s grim. My opinion is that this kind of carry on marked the start of Hill’s downfall too. Trying to emulate Barcelona with over complicated nonsense that players at this level can’t live with or buy into. Hill was much better when he utilised players to their strength and had them believing in themselves.

As I’ve said before, I took the Peterborough thrashing with the same pinch of salt I did the Southend victory. The social media fanfare following the latter result, and the subsequent NY Times article, was way over the top. We played fluid football against very poor opposition. What we’re seeing now is a method of football the primary function of which is to stop us getting beat.

This, in my opinion, is a consequence of the squad depth and having only one player in our ranks who can consistently put the opposition to the sword.

Some of these follow up questions highlight the value of asking the original questions face to face and not emailing them in advance.

Still a lack of certainty around a lot of key issues from what I can ascertain and I’m hearing the Goldbond is an absolute shambles to the detriment of those having to sell it.

He wasn't the intended player, but he may have to become it.

No.

There are also teams from Ireland in it, plus Solihull Moors, as well as colt teams. Farcical.

Little more than that, to be honest, with the added line that BBM felt our youth players were ready to make the step and cover the shortfall in squad depth.

Oh and the pursuit of a forward, that should have been an utmost priority, but failed.

They are playing in the Scottish version of the EFL Trophy, which is even more tinpot than ours.

I agree with that, as I highlighted with my comment about a yearly progression into tinpotery. It still remains our best chance of winning a national trophy, though.

Other clubs may have more realistic ambitions of promotion. Other clubs have won a national trophy. Actually, the arrogance shown towards the trophy by others should be our strength.

Squad size has been done to death and I’ll not bang on about what I said pre-season now coming to fruition. It’s not something I’m pleased has happened.

Hmmm. Not sure we agree on this one. It’s definitely not seen as a priority competition.

Probably not a mainstream opinion, but I do wish we’d put more stock in the EFL Trophy.

Let’s be honest, it’s the only national trophy we have a realistic chance of winning and, despite its yearly progression into tinpottery, it’d be nice to have a national trophy in the cabinet. It would also be major kudos for the manager who delivers it, as well as generating decent PR for the club with it being a ‘first’.

I get the argument about blooding youth and the league being more important, but, at current trajectory, what are our ultimate ambitions? I’d say we can forget about promotion for a decent while.

So, is barely surviving in League One all we’re about now? It may well be, so let’s have a go at winning something while we cling on to our League One status.

What are you bleating on about? That happens at every club all the way up to the top of the food chain - and even then players move to other clubs.
