I did suggest Brennan but got knocked back😀
With him it's a case of dunno as not played much, but what we have seen hasn't exactly oozed class even when playing in his preferred position.  

Not sure we should be making do anyway, just get in a fucking right back like they should have done in the first place.

The thing with Brennan he probably hasn't come here to sit on the bench when fully fit so it will be interesting to see he if he starts many games. I would have offered better deals to Odimayo & Hunt at least you knew what you were getting.

The issue of recruiting for 3/5 at the back and then realising we play better football as a 4. Still may be worth giving Brennan a go. Was noticeable yesterday that in possession the full backs tucked in and Williams and Shade dropped back to create a triangle. Worked quite well to be fair and could see why Darcy was there when in possession. When having to defend though he looked all at sea which isn't too surprising.

I think itís a bit early to completely right off all our right backs.
Sure, itís not been great so far. Still possible it gets no better but still a chance it might.
Itís still early on the season.

Agreed our recruitment was obviously too heavily focused on CBs & WBs for 352

Not writing them off as we never actually recruited any.

Need a competent right back and a Centre Forward that can be bothered to close down.
Hoping we see some activity this week to at least give us all some much needed optimism.

I saw enough yesterday to convince me that we can improve.
Was expecting a lot more from Stockport but we bossed large parts of that game.

However the Stockport vocal support was magnificent all game, except they had a tinpot drum.
Good club and fans.

Hutton, Shade, Darcy and when back in contention Iandolo and Brennan as possibilities for right back?

None of them frankly - bar possibly Brennan, whom it would be unfair to dismiss quite yet based on his minimal game time.

Even if our first impressions of Brennan turned out to be wrong, we'd still need respectable cover for a right back in a 4.  A first choice right back would be my priority this week.

Having abandoned, for now, a 3.5.2, we appear to have over-recruited RWBs.  Regardless of quality debates, this seems expensive at this juncture.

Any trouble after Duke as reports a few Swindon were assaulted going back to their car.

Didnít see any whatsoever and drank in their home pub prior to moving on.
Never had an issue however they moved a few Swindon fans on who came in with colours.
The designated away end had a few Stockport mixed in and all good behaviour.

Been the Stockport away a fair few times and have to say always find their fans decent.
Would go so far to say we have similarities.

Good to hear as we don't want to go back to the hooligan days we all remember. The thing with social media is you don't get the full story and whether a few of ours were Leary or not.

Surely we can get a passable right back out of Shade, Hutton & Brennan

Little late, but went to this, thought it was a decent enough performance and probably one of our better ones this season untill the sending off.

Khan brilliant again, getting quite a few MOTM votes from me, Brynn, FBT, Williams, Clayton, Gladwin all solid. Reed and McDonald much better also.

Folded like a cheap suit after that red card. Spineless weasel like performance in the last 20. Completely deserved to only come away with a point. Standard BS long ball into box goal to concede.

Adeloye hopeless. Need attackers sharpish. Darcy got destroyed down that right side the entire game. Lindseyís response was to bring a right back on to play at right wing. Bizarre. Shade needs to step it up. Need an out and out right back.

Roll on Saturday. Need to start winning games sharpish.
