Maybe it wasn't the club that was the problem? (Wigan I mean, we're a fucking apostrophe)

Like Le Tissier, and I'm not comparing talent here, you need him in a role where he can wander around and find good positions without a care for anything else in the game.  As per DV, you need to have players in midfield behind him who will do the work of three - you need graft, energy, at least one of them to get forward but never have both missing in defence etc.  Grant at his best and Lyden when fit could have done that, Palmer, Payne. Missilou et al can not.

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.

It wasn't just Twine they lost - i believe they lost and had to replace about 6 players in January

I never knew that and if so that would affect any team just like injuries affected Liverpool this season

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?Huh?Huh??? 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.
