We have no tactics. We have a style. That will not change - come what may.
We are too bloody predictable!  A side that comes to the CG with a mindset of a high press and being a bit physical will always beat us it seems

The physical bit is a laugh because every time we challenge a big player in a tackle we get penalised or carded.

Exactly- this is spot on. Until we can adapt then we won’t pick up many points at home sadly

I went for the first time in 2 years, was great to be there, actually being there aside...

What frustrated me most was only once did we try to find one of McKirdy's many, many runs and that was well overhit by Gladwin.  I get that often they're dummy runs but if you never try to find one then the opposition know they need not track him as there is no jeopardy.

It was obvious having two defensive FBs wasn't doing it for us, no attacking output from them at all, odd decision at home.

Pogba's red card yesterday looked nowhere near as bad as the one on KKH down by their fans from the TE, he was well out of control of that challenge and looked a red to me, obviously the ref thought otherwise.  Should have been at least 2 yellows for them by the time their GK was booked for time wasting.

Brilliant penalty from Payne for our consolation.

Looking forward to Oldham where we'll likely do much better.

Wd love to see Granty back - he's such a pro when it comes to tackling and earning free kicks whenever challenged.

The quality of our play notwithstanding, Saturday was yet another example of the high quality officiating that we are blessed with at The County Ground........

Every season I think it can't possibly get worse, and then, bang, it does indeed get worse.

Honestly can't remember a game I've watched this season where I've walked away and thought "the ref was good today."

Yep ever since the first game at Scunthorpe they have been universally awful, missing simple and what appears to be blatantly obvious decisions, and not giving us free kicks when it was an obvious foul.

I do wonder if some teams are deliberatly targetted for not being given free kicks because of a track record of going to ground too easily in a challenge?

I do think some of our players go to ground way too easily, Payne, KKH and JML are 3 off the top of my head where I have thought, no need to go to ground so eagerly, maybe refs are aware of that and tar our whole team with the same brush?

I recently heard a very credible explanation for the deterioration in reffing standards - I think it may even have been by Ben Garner - saying that the need for additional VAR officials at the top end of the game has pulled more of them out of the EFL, so more non-league refs have had to be promoted in a hurry. Clearly beyond their level of competence in some cases.

I heard a valid point at the weekend, can't remember where (might have been in the commentary) that the introduction of VAR has affected the standard of refereeing in the lower leagues..  Because they need more officials now for every Prem match, all refs have automatically been promoted up to fill the gap, so we are seeing referees that would normally be reffing in NL fastracked to League football, possibly before they are ready.

Makes sense..

EDIT: Great minds RF Cheesy

Has anyone ever seen Red Frog and me in the same room at the same time...

Could be. The thing that's got me the most about the refs is the indecisiveness. So many times they deliberate / change their mind on a decision which then turns out to be the wrong decision? It's bizarre.

It was actually Ross Embleton on the BBC pre game on Saturday. Who I thought spoke really well and very intelligently, far superior to Dave "the jinxing moaner" Hockaday.

Ah yes, he gave much better insights, like the one above. To think that anyone thought for a moment that Hockaday was fit to manage Leeds.  Roll Eyes
