You missed out "so far"
I think its us, for some reason, not playing to his strengths. Look at the goals he's scored. The MK game last season, the third in Wales win v Belgium, all crosses relying on his movement. We rarely actually cross it in well
Started ok, but that was a pretty lame performance so far. Need to up the energy 2nd half to get something out of this.
This is a good test of GA's tactical and motivational abilities. If we find a way to turn this around, it could really put a spring in our step.
I would actually like to see Horgan in this game.
We're forgetting the other side of the excuse... that the first choice 11 have to be in form too.
Seems to me that that first half was not good enough either collectively or individually. After bossing the first fifteen minutes, there were too many poor touches and passing options. Well done so far, Cheltenham, and all that but we really should win this game.
This WWFC team look like they have been slipped some mogadon in there pre match tea! We were fine for 15 minutes then went into sloth pace. Cheltenham are working harder since the goal and are winning every 2nd ball. We seem to arrive at the tackle after the ball has left?!?!
Huge 45 ahead.
4 of the next 5 games are against big teams in the league, so we really can't afford to be losing points here.
Our midfield is all over the place. Jack Grimmer has been left two on one too many times, Scowen being dragged across to cover. Freeman not having his best game and Wheeler good when ball coming forward but too far forward to help defensively.
My ‘if you could change one rule’
After the whistle is blown for a free kick or throw if the opposition touch the ball it’s an immediate sanction. I like the 5/10 yard penalty or even yellow card.
@PJS plus Jack is getting zero help from GMac
Looks a good opportunity for Horgan to come on.
He must have scratched Gareth’s car in the car park, the limited pitch time he gets these days,
You enlighten me instead Micra, what is it that you think he's done poorly/wrong?
We just seem to be missing something this season, almost indefinable. A lot of contributing factors, but there is almost a kind of malaise that transcends it all.
Cue us scoring.
It's the indefinable something that makes us midtable. Always predictable after such a good away run we'd surrender like this.
Poor performances and wrongdoings are hardly enlightening @eric_plant.
I’ll put the ball back in your court!
There may be the occasional legit accidental sanction where a player genuinely didn't realise. But it'll cut out 15-20 cynical moments a game.
I can't help feeling the next goal in this match is going to be portentous for the rest of our season, not just the game itself.
Rarely do individuals have stinkers. It’s just the collective sum of the parts are not equal to the whole.
Our crossing is absolutely awful & worse than normal
Raglan still has Vokes in his pocket.
Roll on seventy minutes when we can make a sub.
The problem with us fans is we all have our absolute pure biases, favourites and expectations.
With you, Freeman only seems to have to put a shirt on, and you think he's done brilliantly. Whereas Vokes would have to produce a worldy to get any praise.
Been saying this since last season, we don't play to his strengths !!
Hanlan STILL on the bench
This is really really shit, how can a team have so many attacking flare players and be incapable of stringing more than 4 passes together!!!
Just a reminder we have picked up zero points when trailing in the second half.
Ref makes another poor decision in favour of Cheltenham
