It's been widely commented on but i would love to know what we work on in training as there was nothing resembling a gameplan out there tonight

We tried to play it out from the back and either invited pressure on ourselves because the passing was too slow, or we hit it long to our small strikers who got beaten every time. Or more often we just pumped it down a channel and hoped Godden would reach it. He never did because his starting positions were terrible, he looks nackered and the passes were shit. We now look completely blunt up front while still being weak - although slightly stronger than a few weeks ago - at the back. When we did play it to McKee the lack of movement was astonishing, almost every player hiding from the ball. Smith has been here for a long time now and i still don't know what he does.

Where is this free flowing football we were promised?! It's not hard - one of the only times we went forward we played three simple passes and got it out to Fraser who put in a good cross. On a different day someone would have been on the end of it. That's all it takes. But there was almost nothing whatsoever that suggested the players knew what they were doing, or wanted to do anything. Both are equally damning for Sarll. We got in their box maybe three or four times all game which at home or in any game really is inexcusable

I haven't heard Sarll's interview but if he really has blamed it on players being out of position then he should be sacked on the spot. TVC at left back, King at centre back while Fraser is in midfield...i could go on. As for the Jamie Gray comments........

I really wanted him to succeed here but it's time to call it a day and move on. It won't happen of course but i can't see him ever being able to turn it around to the degree we want, and more and more people are going to stop attending. I will still go whenever I can because I have nothing better to do, but i imagine many who went tonight will be put off for a few games. Maybe it will take our attendance dropping even further for Wallace to act, even then i doubt it.

As mentioned - the plusses were Amos looked promising and Conlon did his usual trick of looking better than most of our starting midfield
