6-0 and a Brazil like performance from Town.

Pittman leaping like a salmon to get us underway from a corner after 5 mins. A thunderbolt from Twine after 20 mins from a freekick after being savaged by a blade of grass on the edge of the area.

A curling Thompson cross leads to a melee in the 6 yard box that is toe poked home by Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman as half time approaches.

Caddis lashes one in from the edge of the box just after half time.

Ten minutes later, Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman completes his hattrick after Garrick is brought down in the area.

An OG completes the scoring after 78 minutes, following a mazy run by Payne and a dreadful shot that is going miles wide until it hits a defender on the arse!

After the game, Lee Power advises that he has done a deal with the FA and will be standing down as both Chairman and owner. The club has been sold to a consortium that has the credentials, wherewithal and honourable intention to bring back the glory days to the Town. As part of the deal, the FA have dropped all charges against the club.

The new consortium, in a post match press conference, promise a change in management structure within the club. A new manager and coaching staff will be appointed in due course. A war chest has been made available for playing staff for next year. There are solid plans in place for next season, whichever division we are in. The short term ambition will be to either consolidate in L1 next year, or return to L1. Longer term, the club will aim to get to the top tier, by investing shrewdly in the transfer market and by developing its own players that will want to remain at the club rather than moving on for 10 bob extra at another club!

Posh a good side and can score goals which doesn't bode well as we enjoy letting teams score goals. 3-1 Posh, Twine with ours.

Tbh I'm not really fussed about the season any more. Even if we do stay up, the lingering threat of a possible points deduction or worse makes me feel uneasy.

All about the waiting game, however I expect we wonít have to wait until the end of the year for the outcome. Much more out in the public domain at least.

Staying up is a good thing regardless of possible points deductions.

If we get enough points to stay up (but not by more than the points deduction), it will be applied this season. This will mean we get relegated - BUT we won't have a deduction next season.

If we don't get enough points to stay up - the points deduction will apply next season.

As for 'worse'. It doesn't bear thinking about.

Szmodics is out for this one and the Posh keeper is injured so apparently they have to get an emergency loan sorted. I was thinking about this on my lunchtime walk and whilst I fully expect we'll get pasted, it is the kind of game that Twine and Payne should have more of the ball as Posh are likely to play in an attacking way I would have thought.

That said, I still think not getting a hiding is probably the best we can hope for.

Based on the not terribly large pool of goalkeepers available, I wonder if they might end up with Trueman or Wollacott! Fingers firmly crossed for Kovar though.

They have a Hungarian keeper called DŠniel Gyollai who is aged 24 and went to them from Wigan who has yet to make aleague appearance for them, hopefully the EFL will say he has to start for them.

He conceded 3 goals on his debut in the Mickey Mouse cup against Burton back in September and had an absolute mare! makes Kovar look almost like a keeper.

Apparently you can only have an emergency loan from a Championship level or lower club so that rules out Kovar.

And for Doncaster, apparently (saw this on another forum, haven't checked). When they've got two other senior keepers on their books, you wonder how this was allowed but Luke Steele wasn't.

1-4 Twine screamer in the first 20, 2 set piece errors either side of half time and then a collapse.

Don't think the result is in question,  it's the number of goals we will concede that's in question.
However with what's going on i don't think it will make any difference,  we're doomed one way or the other.

I somehow get the impression that there are more wide boys sniffing around the club than at the annual Bermondsey Costermonger convention.
Barry Fry, if he can resist the urge to take the piss first, might be able to offer some advice on running a football club based on his experiences working for Stan Flashman.

Fortified by the pre match meal of boiled beef and carrots, the defence will need to park the barrows along the 18 yard line and hope for the best.
As others have said, tomorrow is about protecting the crap goal difference and maybe adding to the goals scored total.
Bearing in mind the two games coming up, a narrow loss with both teams scoring might be acceptable.

Hopefully Payne and Twine can have an impact, but both will need to be slipperier than a styrofoam cup full of jellied eels tomorrow.

I liked this comment from Ferguson:

Posh boss Darren Ferguson said: "We had to think fast. We have a list of keepers in case of something like this happening. He was the one we wanted. It's a good signing to make at such short notice.

"He is a good size, has good temperament, is outstanding with his feet so ticked all of the boxes."

Obviously a professional management team who doesn't pick names of loan keepers out of a hat

I like Conroy but does seem he's made of glass now.  Ilandolo I'd probably give another season still really young so cheap and versatile.  If only out for 6 weeks should be able to get a full pre-season assuming he doesn't break doing up his flies in the mean time

I know he's been about for a while, but looking through the penalty shootouts the other day, there were some teams it was still a surprise to see him in!

Sorry but you are wrong.
The lad has been hung out to dry.
The op he needs is minor, 6 weeks recovery and he has been playing under pain killers and should not have been playing 14 games.
The first knee injury required the same op and he came back fine, the other knee needs the same op.
If not in the plans get the op done and a pre season and will come back a decent player.
Itís not anything to do with the knee but a compensatory injury to the Achilles.
Hope he gets another extension but with the current situation at the club everything up in the air.

My wife has 2 totally fucked up knees now herself at the age of 50, thanks to 10 years of being a fitness instructor.

She has been told that on the NHS they will not replace either knee until she hits 60 at the youngest. They also said to her if we replace your knees now then you will go back to fitness instructing and the 10 year life span of the knees will be reduced to 5 years at most. FWIW she has no intention of ever going back to it now. Bloody NHS.

Operations done privately though would be a different matter I am sure.

It is still my belief we will be docked points and relegated and therefore any game played now on in is IMHO a dead rubber.

Best we can hope for today is a draw but I think a loss is where the smart money is today 0-2

its extremely demoralising and in effect the football doesn't seem to matter anymore. there are huge amounts of guesswork going on from everyone but it does seem like we are playing for relegation this season or minus in league 2. either scenario is league 2 which feels terrible

the players must surely get effected by all of this. i will give it a watch im sure as its free but whats the point in fighting if the fight is out of our hands (potentially)

I know I have not paid to watch a few matches recently and was 90% sure that I would not for the rest of the season, well with what has happened this week Iím 100% sure that I wonít pay a penny to Power via Iplayer. It is still my belief we will be docked points and relegated and therefore any game played now on in is IMHO a dead rubber.

Best we can hope for today is a draw but I think a loss is where the smart money is today 0-2

It's an interesting question actually - if their contracts expired tomorrow, how many our centre backs (Conroy, Baudry, Fryers, Curran, Odimayo, Broadbent, chuck in Grant and Iandolo if you like) get a football league club? Not sure it's more than half to be honest. Half of them because no club would take a risk on the injury records, admittedly.

Town were always going to lose today so really couldn't give a fuck about getting a load of aggro from a bunch of blokes I don't know. Even set up to lose today.

Wouldn't panic just yet. I did say don't bother looking at the table after this match. Still up on expected points accrued with regards since the final 10/12 games.

It's Rochdale, Wimbledon and Wigan that matter. We'll beat two of them and draw with Wigan. Will somehow end up being enough.

Might even sneak a point or surprise result elsewhere.

Game of two halves, I'm sure the Johnozoic twat of a manager won't change anything significant until around 80mins.

Um, can we just not turn up for the remainder of the season?

We sort of looked OK for 10-15 mins but had the cutting edge of a spoon.

What on earth we hope to get from a game playing Garrick as a wing back and Curran as the central defender next to him is beyond me.  It's Curran who keeps getting beat for headers from their deep corners as well.  It's like they know a weakness and are trying to expose it.

The throw it together formation is now creaking, as do every other throw it together tactics Sheridan goes with for more than a game or two.

The midfield is powder puff, Hope looks just as pointless as Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman when nobody else in our team wants to get anywhere near him and for half the game he has to chase aimless balls forward.

Twine, well, a long shot and a decent long pass is not going to be enough in the long term for him and if he continues to piss referee's off and look for free kicks rather than control the ball all the time, he'll flatter to deceive, as he is and has done for a couple of games.  The sort of thing someone should be coaching out of him.

Overall it was an inevitable half.

Thank God he blew the whistle!

0-2

Kept the ball for the first 15mins but couldn't create anything. Peterborough midfield and forwards were always closing down and snapping at our heels.

Posh then got into the game and targeted our right side, just like everyone else has this year. Rough to blame Curran for everything. He has been up against a quick and skillful upper Championship level striker.

We defended poorly, as per usual and have been lucky to have only conceded 2.

Going forward, Garrick has the beating of his defender, but at times looks as if he's not sure what game he's playing!

Hope made a go of things for about 15 mins - didn't win anything but looked to be trying. After that he disappeared.
Payne has had a couple of chances, but hasn't taken them.

Twine has dives so much and so theatrically that when he does get fouled it isn't given. If he'd cleared the ball they wouldn't have scored and it might be 0-0 now. They grew in confidence after that and our heads dropped.

Thompson was good against Ipswich. He's been progressively awful since. He can't get much worse than today.

Grants passing in the first 15 mins was a bit off. He's looking like a stand in CB today.

Missilou is slow, Palmer was found out after 15 mins. Payne has been all over the shop at times.

Camp has looked a bit dodgy too!

Wright was screaming at the 4th official after Twine made too much of the foul in their area. Surprised he wasn't carded.

Team playing like strangers because, as usual, they're trying to work out where they're playing. Whichever genius thought Curran and Garrick was an adequate right-side defence needs to be led gently away from a football ground, never to return. Surprisingly, playing Hope as an isolated front man with no-one within 20 yards of him is working no better than it did with Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman. It's almost as if the player isn't the problem. Grounds as aimless as usual, Thompson not there, Twine powder-puff. It's all so fucking clueless we're getting what we deserve.

Who thinks someone will see the problem and correct it this half, or between now and the end of the season? Our club is just a twitching corpse now.

I admire your optimism and not having a dig at any way.
We are a shambles, canít score and canít defend. A keeper that is shaky and a midfield that is physically inept. Put together by a Manager that has no game plan and an owner that no words can describe.
We are doomed.
Very Well summed up  .Don't think any one can dispute that.

Passed it around well at times, offered little in attack and less in defence, Camp saved the score being utterly embarrassing.

Curran should never get near a starting slot ever again for us, Palmer and Twine pretty much anonymous all game other than Twine shot and a pathetic dive to try and con the ref, Joel Grant adds nothing, Missilou is all or nothing, last week he was great this week he was appalling.

The rest just basically turned up to get their pay cheque. Payne and Garrick the only other 2 players who looked like they MIGHT make a difference but in the end didn't. Grant did ok.

Very bad tactics and subs from the man in charge.

Going down with barely a whimper.

Lose on Tues we can wave goodbye to league 1.

Iíd give A Grant a bit of credit as well, he spent all game trying to do the job of 2 players covering that useless cunt next to him. Anyone that believes Curran plays on merit or deserves a chance clearly need reevaluate their view now!

Well, what a shambles we have become.

Should have lost that by 5 or 6.

Camp - did well and kept the score down.
Curran - it's a fucking embarassment that he has a contract let alone a spot on the pitch.  He is a disaster of a player - I don;t care if he makes the odd good tackle or block, that is the minimum expected of any defender for fucks sake.  He carries the ability to unravel at frequent moments in a game and puts the defenders on edge around him.
Grant - looked solid enough for 80 mins, exposed in that last 10 and far too slow to play as a second central defender when there are only two.
Grounds - he's just a jobbing defender.  He sort of looks OK for a while, but plays the game at a snails pace in his head at times, not just his legs.
Garrick - people know my thoughts, he just provided a 90 minute example today - all pace and nothing else.  He might scare a defence for a few minutes then they work him out and what the fuck we were doing playing him as right wing back is beyond me.
Thompson - Brentford will think twice about sending us players again, we have ruined him.  Shadow of the player he must be, has been terrible for a few weeks now.
Palmer - showing precisely why we loaned him out, waste of space
Missilou - awful footballer, bit of effort, probably a league above his level
Payne - a 45 minute player, such a shame, but I doubt he has ever been much kop in central midfield
Twine - glimpses of class, lots of falling over and too often gets in the way of an attack
Hope - I don't know where you play him, he's almost a player, but not quite
Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman - like a fading photo of what he was
J Grant - meh
Broadbent - I give up, he somehow looks better as a forward than a defender, but he's not that either

Overall, we've managed to produce the lowest level of performance from our squad, and then you sprinkle in Sheridan and we get what we deserve.

As a squad, I still think there was enough to be better off than we are, but we've ensured we extracted the least amount of juice from what we have.

He probably gets in on the strength of being a centre half.

Camp 7
-   Was a bit dodgy and lucky at times in the first half. Couldnít do much for any of the goals. Kept the score down in the second half with several decent saves and the yellow card and penalty miss

Thompson 3
-   Has got progressively worse since the Ipswich game

Curran 3
-   Tried. Made a couple of good tackles and interceptions. But was caught out of position and made to look silly by a good CF in Dembele. Not as bad as Theakston made out, but National League standard defending at best

Grant 6
-   Thought he looked suspect in the first half, but, was better in the second. At least he looked as if he deserved to be a professional footballer. Many today didnít!

Grounds 5
-   He tried hard in two positions, but, would be a weak link in a decent defence and not the rock we need him to be in a poor defence

Payne 4
-   Mr left foot. Learn to use the right one please. Anonymous in the second half.

Palmer 4
-   Mr right foot. Weak midfielder. Delivery wasnít that good either today

Missilou 3
-   Slow as anything! Very poor game today as his head seemed to drop after they scored.

Twine 4
-   Would have had a penalty if he hadnít been theatrical. Didnít have much chance to influence the game as he was very closely marked.

Hope 4
-   Tried in the first 15 mins. Disappeared after until Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman came on. Then fizzled out again

Garrick 5
-   Couple of nice bits of play. Defended once or twice. Stood around a lot. Reacting to the ball AFTER it has been played rather than reading the game

Subs:
Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman 4
-   He had 3 chances. As a slow forward who used to be a clinical finisher, I would have expected him to score from one or two.

J Grant 5
-   Actually noticed him! He offered something (not much) down the left

Broadbent 5
-   Made a difference up front. Caused a bit of trouble. Unlucky not to score from a corner, when his header was cleared off the line. Didnt really make a difference at the back.

Wright:
- Big gap between the sides
- Disappointed with the goals. First 2 were school boy errors
- Been an issue all year
- We warned them they break quickly
- Utterly disappointed with the goals
- Massive game on Tuesday
- Why hasnt there been improvement? We change personnel and make the same mistakes
- Tried everything. Brought people in and they keep giving goals away
- Weve proved in certain games we can keep clean sheets
- When you are on top against a good side, you have to be careful or they will punish us
- Final balls were poor
- Didnt create enough
- Crosses poor
- Didn't move quick enough
- Just quality of crosses
- Never crossed early enough
- Took an extra touch or extra pass
- The 6 teams that are down there are similar
- We have to pick the best team to play Rochdale
- We have got some good players at the club
- We have to stop giving poor goals away
- We have 8 players around the ball and they still scored the first goal
- Everyone is down today. We have to pick ourselves up and show belief and desire
- They need to be stronger mentally
- Burton have done that. That is why they have pulled away
- We have got good ability players here
- Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman and Caddis were leggy last week
- Garrick might have given us legs going forward. But hadnt played the role before
- Odimayo has a knee injury. Hoping that he will be fit for Tuesday
- Broadbent on for his height. Just a gamble to go long
- Payne: Needed a bit of freshness up there. Just a chance to get J Grant on the ball
- We need Fleetwood and Bristol Rovers performances.
- Fearful of going down? Very fearful. I dont want to fail! I will do my damnedest! I feel down. I'll keep fighting!
- Play a team in a similar position as us. Pressure at top is easier that pressure at the bottom
- We have come to the nitty gritty
- Conroy: Problem with achilles. He may need surgery.
- On the Conroy Tweet, Wright said 'He's the one that says he has the injury! If you are not 100% physically fit to get fit you may need surgery!'

A Grant:
- Very disappointed
- First 20 mins started off bright
- Conceded and then did it again. Its not good enough
- Couldnt explain the first 2 goals.
- Can't get ahead of ourselves as a team or as individuals. What we have done on the pitch today wasnt good enough
- When 2-0 we had to go for it.
- Tried to get back into the game with the sub
- Couple of good chances
- Camp did well shutting them out, but the defence needs to do better
- Individuals need to take a look at themselves.
- Camp didnt deserve to let in 3 goals
- Defence is just not good enough
- Tuesday: Cant say make or break. Need to go there and try to win
- Football is a funny game. We'll prepare for the game and go out to try to win
- Frustrating but with quick turn around you have to think about the next game
- Leadership? Just trying to do what he can. I'm trying. You can hear others are frustrated. We do so many things well. But some things not.
- Hopefully it will be a bright light on Tuesday and we win
- Do you all need a good shout at eachother? Things happen in the game and on the training field. We have to look at ourselves as individuals.

The management team are cunts.

I agree. The grief that Curran got was a bit OTT. He isn't good enough for L1 and on a very good day has shown he could be a lower L2 player. However, he go no support whatsoever from Garrick.

In the last few weeks, Caddis has dropped back and been roasted in the first half before moving to a more advanced position in the second. Today though, Garrick just wandered around a bit.

I think with the Conroy thing. What I read into that is that Wright and Sheridan have criticised Conroy (perhaps for not training - I seem to recall hearing Sheridan saying that Conroy had been carrying an injury and hadn't trained). Conroy has said that he has an achilles issue that requires pain killers during the game. Achilles issues, as described, often need operations. I think Sheridan and Wright are saying that if you are not fit to train you are not fit to play.

He didn't answer the question. He answered a different question. The initial question was about Broadbent coming back into the reckoning at CB. Wright just said they brought him on to give some height up top. He then went on to say he cause some problems up front and was unlucky not to score. He said nothing about CB and defending.

It always amazes me that apart from the odd  golden sphericals talked about on this site that the same or very similar views are posted by so many. How on earth cannot people being paid to make decisions around the team see the same points made or are they that thick skinned and adopt the attitude that being ex professionals that they really know best. I wonder, because it certainly is not working and it is the fans as usual that will have to bear with the abysmal outcome.

I'm reading between the lines. It could be more of a case that they think Conroy has let them down in games and that he has blamed it on injury. So they want him to prove his fitness before considering him again - As they are worrying about him letting them down again.

I don't know!

We have Broadbent (too slow), Baudry (bad decision), Conroy (too slow), Fryers (injured still?), Grounds (slow, better at LB and cover at best), Masterson (learning and injured) and Curran (not good enough). None of them look up to the job and will struggle to get another gig in L1 or L2.

Grant, who is a fill in at best, looks better than all of them. Odimayo looks promising (but is prone to the odd mistake from switching off) as does Iandolo who is now injured again.

Yes, but part of the problem is the midfield. They don't support the forward(s), who incidentally are not good enough for L1, and don't help the defence. First goal today being a good example. Eight people around the ball and Twine fluffs his clearance.

Wellens had two out and out goalscorers plus several players who could chip in with one or two.

We now have none.

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman can get one or two and Twine and Payne can chip in with a couple each. But, I don't see any other goals in the team.

Good players stamp their authority on a game they do not need the rest of the team to play to Twines strengths..

What exactly are his strengths a decent long shot or free kick(How many free kicks has he had?, how many has he scored?)

As I said any move to a Championship or L1 side he will end up a bench warmer at best for a season or 2 , having a couple of loans at L2 teams before being released at the end of his contract...

Trying to think, whether it has ever been worse than this? I remember doing a 3 hour drive to the ground one Tuesday night in about 2007 as I genuinely believed it might be the last ever game we played. We lost to Cheltnum in some Leyland Daf trophy game or something.  It was bleak. Not sure if it's worse now or not. Feel strangely meh about it all.

When we had 2 up front and Twine playing in the hole behind, if we had two decent L1 strikers up front for Twine to feed balls into, I think that would be an awesome combination but as you say, we need to build the attack around Twine, and build the defence around Odimayo.

Twines a #10. Heís not a striker, heís not a central midfielder and he isnít a wide player.
Youíd need to play a 4-2-3-1 formation with Twine as the middle of the three with a fit Lyden and Grant as the 2.

Then of course youíd need to actually use your midfield instead of bypassing it but thatís a different thing altogether.

Missilou et al can not.

Genuinely think Twine is practising his gamesmanship for a league above. He knows he has interest from several Championship clubs and his salmonesque efforts would be rewarded more often in the Championship than they are in L1. It's likely any club he goes to will even help him to refine the fishy flop.

Do I think he's ready for a Champ club? Nope but several Champ clubs know that he would be a cheap development punt, even if that was at a silly price like £1m (it won't be that). 3 or 4yr Championship contract on probably around £10k pw. Not a bad gig and he'd be a fool to not take it. Even if it is to spend 2 of those years in their u23s, a year back in L1 and then maybe some cup matches for the side you actually signed for.

Mmm Barnsley u23s to practising launching yourself to the ground. It doesn't quite have the glamour of Ebbsfleet away on £400 a week, on a frozen November evening does it?

Really, would we give a fuck if we were in those comfortable neoprene boots? All he'd have to do is score an absolute screamer in the 3rd or 4th round of the FA Cup (even if against Tiptree & Maldon) and he'd bag himself another tasty (and this time overpriced) move in the January transfer window!

Twine won't be a Town player next season.

On a recent forum asked about his positional play when at Newport he said that although he played in a midfield three the manager allowed him to float around behind the strikers with no strict instructions. Seemed to work well there but at the time they had quite good forward options.

I have a good friend who is a Peterborough fan and he texted at half time to say we were very good on the ball but powder puff up top and disastrous at the back and I think this probably sums us up I reckon.

We appear to have started to try and play a little bit of posession based football, which is a start, but we are catastrophically bad when we eventually get into the final third as Garrick has zero end product and Dom Thompson appears to have lost the ability to put on decent crosses now, which means we are reduced to having Scott Twine throwing himself on the floor repeatedly to try and win free kicks in shooting positions. The ref on Saturday saw through him from minute one which meant he was getting bugger all. It was only in the last few minutes when Posh had almost completely stopped playing, almost as if they were giving us a chance, only for BP to pathetically waste his 2 chances. I cannot remember the last time a keeper at the CG in an opposition team actually had to work really hard, these days if they are able to take a few lolloping crosses every now and then, that is literally all they have to do to earn their cleen sheet bonus.

Defensively, all over the shop as always. I know Curran gets talked to death on here and he was up against a tough opponent in Dembele, but I specifically watched his reactions for the second goal where he swiped lazily at the ball after Dembele had nicked it away from him, but then sauntered (and I am being generous here) back as if he was ambling around a garden centre instead of busting a gut to get back in and attempt to defend. Not sure exactly whose fault was the first goal as it appeared to be a collection of merde.

I know I say it every week but OMOTOYE????????? Can't we at least try and stretch defences with a bit of pace. All our other players are so hilariuosly slow and ponderous.

Can we beat Rochdale, Wimbledon and Wigan and attempt to stay up? Jury is very much out but as a football club this season we look a beaten fighter, and not one that has fought gamely for 12 rounds, one that has a broken toe in round 2 and has been forced to throw in the towel.

This is the worst bit for me, he clearly doesn't give a shit or put the effort in to try and mask the fact he's Sunday league level. He's purely here for the 'professional footballer' bragging rights, purely about feeding his ego.

Its often better to wait a few days before posting after games, gives you time to assess it fully.

Therapy is one word for it....

Indeed. I also like to see what is written in the Match Day Freds as it happens, with my Captain Hindsight hat on. I do try and avoid the forum over the weekends as a way to escape the neverending doom our club brings us!

We can all see this, but all the blame has to go to a management team who looked at Curran + Garrick and thought "yeah, that's an adequate right side against the league leaders", while leaving Caddis on the bench, and Hunt at home.

Same up front: nothing has stuck to Hope or Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman while they're 20 yards away from anyone in the middle all season, but do we try anything else? Do we fuck.

I can't express how much disdain I have for this mismanagement team. I've seen some shit in my time, but I've literally never seen such persistent rank incompetence. And to cap it all, it goes completely unpunished by our no-pot chairman.

I hadn't really noticed the lack of effort until Saturday but for me it really stuck out like a sore thumb, especially that second goal. Of course I have no idea what is going on internally, but if he is indeed only playing because of his dad then surely to goodness you at least work your arse off to show you warrant being part of the team. Putting in half-hearted tackles and jogging back is unacceptable to any professional team, what on earth must the rest of the squad be thinking when they watch the videos back?? I'm amazed a solid professional like Anthony Grant actually puts up with that sort of behaviour on the pitch.

Its a bit like having a new team member at my work, that is only employed as he is the son of the CEO of the company, and having to show him EVERY day, how to use the SUM function in Excel because he can't be arsed, or is too stupid to remember what I am showing him to do (NOT down to my ineptitude in training before anyone says anything!! :) )

Spot on RF. I keep banging the Omotoye drum as I want to see something a bit different, but as you rightly say, why do we keep playing with the Suez Canal barge up front with nobody around him?? Sheridan has been in management for long enough to surely see it doesn't work? It's almost like he's doing it just to piss off the fans.

You do have to wonder what would have to happen for Omotoye to get game time, presumably the rest of the bench being mauled by lions in some kind of freak circus escape tragedy. I have no idea whether he's any good or not, any more than anyone else, given we've not seen him, but if he's that bad why the hell did we bring him in on loan? Poor kid must wonder why he's wasted half a season sitting on our bench. He'd at least have played some U23 games if he'd stayed at Norwich.

The weird thing is, looking back, we chucked him straight into the team on the day after he signed before he'd so much as trained with us.

That remains his only start.

We're 0-6 in games he's appeared in by the way -  http://www.swindon-town-fc.co.uk/PlayingRecord.asp?PersonID=OMOTOYET&Season=2020-2021 (http://www.swindon-town-fc.co.uk/PlayingRecord.asp?PersonID=OMOTOYET&Season=2020-2021) I wonder what the largest number of games someone has played in for us without even managing a draw?

Edit: Turns out the usual site (http://www.swindon-town-fc.co.uk/StatAttack/PlayerSuccess.asp?Opposition=NO&Type=Least) already has this - Will Day managed 14 games, 14 losses in 1903. Omotoye is already joint third though!

Totally agree.

Omotoye was brought in due to the Tyler Smith hokey cokey fuck up. Ergo Town ended up with two strikers on loan that Sheridan didn't want and likely two strikers who really don't want to be here.

Town sign Omotoye as the back up striker option without checking the status of Smith and it's all very quick. ĻTyler Smith then arrives at Uncle Tommy's house with an overnight bag like a kid who's ran away from home and Tommy looks at him and says:

"We dunnae want ye fir fitba laddie but the Mrs is mekkin' tatties n neeps ya kin? Come on wee Tyler. Ye can stay with us 'til June."

...and so blossomed a loving paternal football relationship. Tommy ended up adopting Tyler Smith and will pay him to clip his toenails until he draws his pension...

See, Tommy does have a heart, even if he plays the hard man :D






ĻFrom here on in this part is entirely fabricated but there could be some truth within, especially in this crazy STFC season.

Posh beat Cobblers 3-1 tonight so it's still very much "4 from 6".

IF Town manage all 3pts v Wimbledon, THAT Wigan match is going to be very definitive I reckon. I conceded relegation after the Rochdale defeat but part of me still says that the final relegation spots will be settled on GD...
