Just seen the highlights on FB and to be fair to that Bradford fan was right, they could have had 3 or 4 before we scored.
Well taken goal for Ajose but both of theirs could have been avoided, ok the equaliser was a bullet header ...

Spent yesterday out in the wilds and the night in the woods.  Infinitely better than going/listening to town.

Just been watching a video of Arsenal fans who are claiming that their players no longer want to play for Wenger, perhaps the same could be said for our players and Williams!

Yes, but sleeping member.

I could get motivated by a repeat of the mid 00's orange style putsch, but dislike the everyday bureaucracy inevitably needed to keep such an organisation going. Respect the people who are prepared to do it though.
So I'd be right in saying that you term yourself as part of the fan base that doesn't have the fight to help secure the future of the club then???

As I said, I've no longer the motivation to get involved in the minutae and detail of the basic running of any organisation. But would be up for a bit of direct action.

Up until the time of Fitton/Black I considered that my shareholding was a means of helping to secure the future of the club, and the AGM as means of involvement. However that route of engagement has been severed....not it should be noted by Power but the lack of accountabilty suits him.

This type of negativity really irks me.
Super coach on the cheap, players on the cheap and after Powers profit you have a club with no financial problems.
To infer that the team is shit cannot help in their confidence. Please think twice before sharing your doom and gloom on this site.

Sorry, but I failed to be inspired by your version of positivity.

Just seen Williams comments

It's a variation on the "unable to cope with the reality of going ahead" nonsense we had a few weeks back. Basically he's saying that the team are mentally weak. Given that their "leader" increasingly sounds like Col Kurtz in his interviews, that's hardly surprising.

Against my better judgement I went to the game yesterday.

Bradford weren't significantly better than us.  That's what annoys me the most about this season - this league is not very good.

It was the usual thing though, our players as a team aren't mentally strong.  I would bet that if we replaced Branco with an experienced CB who could marshal and lead the defence, we wouldn't have conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes.

Not mentally strong is an understatement. They are so poorly disciplined and so unfit it's actually mind boggling. You have to put that down to coaching. There are serious problems and have been for a long time... But what can you do when the Power(s) that be refuse to address a glaringly obvious issue?

Yeah, but the OP on this thread seems to contradict.

As the cliche goes, one week is a long time in football.

Let alone six months.

Think the cliche applies to politics.... namely a week is a long time in politics, H Wilson.  Theresa May is finding that out right now.

At least Kurtz had a Willard.
