It's not good enough to concede four vs the bottom side. Was going to review the last 1O games via the ppg run but Town simply are not good enough, they should be but I kind understand Morris opinion that they are lacking in quality.

Austin is Austin and as many have stated, play him as a striker/poacher, whip the ball into him and he will score.

That's where Hutton comes into things, if he didn't spend most of the season spitting his dummy out, we may have seen more Austin/Hutton - Goal/Assist combos. Yes the stats will say they are both doing ok and Austin can't really be to blame but they can and should be much better for both. Austin due to lack of service, Hutton due to not playing to his potential regularly outside of a transfer window.

There's a good mid-table L2 side at Town but I don't think any of us or Morris want Town to be a good mid-table side, because ultimately that just isn't good enough because overall the side is also just not good enough.

I suspect Artell suffered from not having a thick London accent. Face it, itís Zav Austin, the Hart bloke and Sandro choosing the manager isnít it?

Quite the opposite I believe, Clem overruled Sandro to appoint him.
Maybe Morris can put on a good Aussie accent;)

Pretty robust stuff from Morris. Glad I wasn't the only one who thought we looked dreadful at 2-0 up!

pissed off but nothing he can do this season.

if he doesn't get backed in the summer with whatever he was sold, that's when the problems will come.

but that's a problem that doesn't yet exist

Work on defending corners. Fuck me, we can put as much blame on Sandro as we want but how hard is it to get a set of professional players to defend fucking corners.

We have a goalkeeper who doesn't come for corners, and Clayton's confidence looks shot to pieces. Austin won more defensive headers than most today!

Fair enough. For what itís worth, I think a summer with Morris and Brand and a coherent transfer strategy will see us turn into a coherent teamÖ this season has been shambolic, lurching from makeshift team to makeshift team. Injuries and suspensions havenít helped, but a new DOF with a proper football background does seem desirable.

Itís hard to believe we have a player who scored four today and itís not the main talking point. Iíve seen James Collins do it v Pompey, and remember Shearer doing it v Plymouth, but there canít be many more in the past 39 years.

What happens when you have a team with a blend of inexperience and lack physicality.
Angry after throwing away another 3 points against a shit side that go long.

Shambles.
Every corner, every free kick we looked vulnerable.
Time to think long and hard about a u turn in recruitment next season because this is not fit for function or purpose at this level.

Another long trip and disappointed.
Nearly lost it as well.

Not equipped to do so.
Equally watching the likes of Darcy and Wakeling getting tamely knocked off the ball exposes it further.
We lack physicality.

You must be getting pissed off moaning about the performances on your journeys home Duke!
