Interesting that the biggest criticism from our own fans this season is that we've been too dull. Too many men behind the ball, too few chances created, we've sold our souls to the lofty heights of The Championship and are now a shadow of the team that took us up.

So last night we're involved in a thriller which was reminiscent of so many of our performances last season (had Wordsworth's seemingly legitimate goal stood, it was a near-replica of Preston away), where we end with three strikers on the pitch, and all of a sudden we're nailed on relegation fodder.

We didn't play particularly well and should be taking points from a winning position against a struggling side, no doubt. But the goals we conceded were outrageously soft, and out of character for our defence this season. We created plenty of chances. Unlike the Brentford game, we really were undeserving of defeat last night but we lost our heads at the back and were made to pay.

Basically, what our fans want is a team that can

Spot on mandy.

Much happier with last night overall in contrast to all the fear the team has had in the previous games.

It's up to the manager which style he adopts here on out. However, in all his interviews thus far he is purely perfunctory.

I for one think we will get more points over the season with yesterday's optimism than more contracted styles of play. There's also the point of motivation, energy and morale. Playing on the front foot may be more important than conceding ball and space most games.

What they've got is a team where new signings are still gelling, we don't know our best team yet and we're bound to lose a lot of games because our financial capability stretches to taking on ageing players who've done it at this level and young players who one day might. If our fans can't deal with that then this season might not be a lot of fun.

Couldn't agree more Mandy, well said. We need to keep the faith, what's up with some of you?

Cracking post, we went for it because the gaffer considered it was a game we could win. He was right and got his tactics spot on. The players let him down a bit. This happens in football.
We can,t however play in that style against many teams because they will destroy us with pace.
