Agree with much of this and Deltic's assessment.

We looked very good first 20, Amos was running things nicely.

Strange substitution when Kennedy went off, changing formation from a 4-4-2 to a 4-1-4-1, although Sheaf looked decent in the Charlie Lee role, made a couple of very strong challenges and didn't look bullied.

But it did stifle our creative play as Amos tucked in, although we still managed to put together some nice interchanges going forward.

Until half-time we nullified Stead and Ameobi winning the second balls for the most part.

Second half we made 4-5 mistakes in the first 5 minutes, Smith x2, King and TVC all giving the ball away cheaply in dangerous areas as County applied a bit more pressure from midfield.

Not sure we could have done much about either goal, couldn't pinpoint a player to blame.

Going forward we were shooting from distance and mostly high, wide and not very handsome. We ignored Goddard when we should have played him in, Amos' crossing was very poor and he drifted out of the game as did McKee.

White didn't impress me, no pace, no strength and no guile, unsurprising given his inexperience and age, bloody stupid substitution. I'd have thrown Whelpdale or Gorman on and pushed Amos or Goddard up top.

Not a great spectacle from either side, they had one and a half chances and took two. We didn't force a save of note, a couple of easy ones was about it.

Christ do their fans like a moan, they never fucking stopped whinging. I'd forgotten why I dislike them.

Nice meal, nice walk from pub over the Trent bridge, easy drive, sunshine. Got roughly what I expected, had worse Saturdays.
