The Arsenal team was drilled - old skool maybe, using rope to keep them in line, but then it became an ingrained behaviour.  Over time, you know where to be, you trust the others to be where they need to be.  Our lot are playing while trying to remember where they should be, they probably are not sure of the person next to them either.


Give this lot a length of rope they'd finish up strangling each other.

Issue is does Power actually care at the moment to do anything about it ? adding yet another expense on to the balance sheet of paying Sheridan until the end of the season for sacking him, and then paying a new manager as well.

The starting 11 last night are better than those we had on day 1 of this season, on paper they should be good enough to pick up enough points to survive, but on recent evidence we could go down with a record goals against tally.

Sheridan needs to go and I think Wright needs to follow him to have a clean sweep.

Not sure who we could bring in as it is now clearly a rescue mission and a race for points, perhaps someone like Alan Mac or Lee Peacock who have experience of coaching with the youth setup and for them to bring in an experienced assistant to help them until the end of the season, or for Jewell to step out of his comfort zone.

If we went down nobody would blame them as we are already heading that way, but if they can drill these players and bring about an improvement on the pitch and pick up enough points to stay up they would improve themselves and their reputation in the game, and we can review everything at the end of the season.

I'm not sure fans have been this united in wanting the manager out for a long time, even under Williams, Brown & Flitcroft there was still fans who thought they deserved more time, but with Sheridan I am no longer reading comments about him needing more time or give him time with his players etc, there seems to be a united wanting of him gone now.

I do feel for the Smith's we have had on loan, they look decent but the current manager is incompetent of playing them to their strengths.

I have read most of the comments on here regarding last night's painful, shit show non-event football match. It was woeful and difficult to watch. Sheridan should be gone. If he is still here tomorrow then I fear that nothing will change and the season is over. I will assume that the taking for granted of our loyalty and cash will continue as normal.

One thing I will say about Sheridan....

He is galvanizing the fans and players, into hating him.

It is damn rare to have a manager so universally disliked by players and fans alike.

As always spot on.

Whilst no fans are in attendance not sure how we can show our obvious disapproval. A hull thrashing on Saturday might be enough for power but you never want to wish a defeat especially as we need the points so badly.

The only realistic option is the power of social media. Doesnít take a lot get things trending but could pick a relatively quiet day like Sunday for a #dinosaurout

The most painful thing about watching this at the moment is the knowledge that there is a good team hiding in this shit. A new gaffa could turn this toxic tide

Good post and couldn't agree more but the problem we have is good managers cost money and we're entering into the unknown with Powers court case looming so can't see him caring too much about changing things if deep down he knows he may be off soon

power made too much effort last season and has made too many signings in January to show that he doesnít care about relegation. If he goes then a league 1 club is still worth more than a league 2 club.

If thatís the case, then retaining Sheridan shows that he knows less about football than he suggests he knows.

Just something that came to mind - Sheridan in the post-match presser said that we didn't train on Monday due to the weather.

So... did we actually do any preparation for the game yesterday? Even if you can't use the pitch for "training", they could have used conference rooms to discuss tactics. Certainly didn't look like any prep was done for yesterdays game
