As someone once said, a ďzoneĒ never scored a goal

It might work for the top teams in Europe but not league2. Im old school pick up anyone who isn't marked!

I didnít watch today - not being IT literate enough to get I follow in UK on a Saturday - however I think some of the criticism of Morris is unfair.
He inherited an unbalanced squad - lacking in central defence, defensive midfield and a centre forward in the Simpson/Davison style to support Austin, plus very little experience. This has been made worse by a dreadful run of injuries, and poor discipline on the field leading to red cards / suspensions for Khan and RHM - all meaning that we can never play the same team in consecutive games, and have had a makeshift defence in most if not all of his games.
Despite that, if we look closely we can see a style of play developing, and he does make substitutions which change the game for the better (we have seen on several occasions).
I agree totally that recruitment needs to be better (I guess affordability may be a problem) - January in particular was shocking - although even before the window in my view the squad was poor.
However the search for a scapegoat is unhelpful - it was Lindsey before Christmas (some were saying this squad should be challenging for automatic promotion) now itís Sandro.  Itís more complicated than that. I donít particularly have an answer - but sacking Sandro will do nothing beyond satisfying those who are calling for him to go.
But do any of us really know who makes the decisions and has the final say?

I'm not going to judge Morris based on this season however I've just heard his post match interview. Fills me with some optimism as at least he's seen the game the same way we have. Whether he can do anything about it with the tools we have is another matter entirely.

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.

Quite frankly Iíd expect professionals to be able to mark a man and go with him if he runs and challenge the header

There is something he could do.

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.

fair. 3 In a row now. plus they had oneb header disallowed and one that went wide from a good position.

They probably have been but maybe it's not sinking in!

agree with the substitutions.

I'm still struggling with the style. But others have said the same as you so I must be missing it.

I'm not being anti Morris, I'm just struggling with what we are trying to do. Maybe it'll be more obvious with his players

Not that long ago we won away at Northampton and defended superbly against a barrage of corners.
We had a League Two experienced defender that is no longer at the club and a defender almost out for the season that can header the ball.

Itís frustrating but can only hope we learn from this.

Often question the sanity.
Itís an expensive hobby. Itís not just the 90 minutes mind, if it was I would have given up a long time ago. You meet some cracking people on the travels and lads that you have got to know over years of supporting Swindon.

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.

McKirdy last season v Northampton.
Seems a long time ago now.

Spot on. Until the powers that be at the club recognise this we arenít going up next season either, or the season after

You donít get out of this shithole of a division with zero physicality or height in the side
