    Could it be that they are paying for steak and being served beef burger?

    We are the home team, effort is a given, the players have to do something that raises the crowd.

    Mind you the sponsors voted Wiles MOM, who sponsored the game today? The Stevie Wonder appreciation society?

    I don't expect the west or east stands to be particularly loud but even the Kop is quiet now.

    Obviously I haven't seen the game or even read a report in the media but I bet that big bleedah Beccles won everything in the air and bullied your forward players .

    None of the Shrewsbury players had to win a tackle, we either ran into them or misplaced a pass to give the ball away.

    The fans were poor but it is a chicken and egg situation isn't it? I think this is partly down to the fact that goals we score are almost meaningless till the game is over because we have shown over the last couple of seasons we are so capable of giving leads away.I thought today that even if we had scored in the last five mins we would have been holding on at best in the end. I watched the Sunderland game when we played well and said that I really didn't know why I watched the millers because they made me feel anxious even then because I was aware we could blow all our good work with one stupid error.. It aint good for my ticker!I never have a feeling we are controlling a game and suspect many fans think the same.

    Interesting comment about running into players Grist. Oh for someone who actually has the skill to dribble round a defender. We had one in Ogbene but hes knacked now..maybe the only player apart from Hastie who has already burnt out on today's showing.

    Passing is generally poor particularly in the final third. Then again do we have players making darting runs to find space for a pass. We have potentially 3 goalscoring midfielders in Crooks, Wiles and Lyndsey. How often did they get in the box? Are they told to sit deep all the time?

    The reality is Shrewsbury came for a point and got one comfortably. We can blame inept officials but they didn't make any mistakes that materially changed the game.
    This is the third time a team has come to NYS to frustrate, cheat, spoil, waste time and battle hard and we haven't got a clue how to deal with it.
    We never looked like breaking them down because we either passed sideways or backwards or the centre halves just launched it hopefully forwards, usually out of play.
    Oh for a creative midfielder who can unlock a packed defence.
    The lack of movement from our midfielders and strikers was painfully evident all game but was graphically illustrated for me in the last minute of added time when Morris out on the left beat his man and looked up for someone to step back on the edge of the area so he could pass to them but no-one was there so he beat his man again, looked up, still no-one there so he did it a third time and still no-one there.
    Everyone was bunched together around the penalty spot and simply not available for a pass so eventually a defender inevitably hacked it clear.
    Get ready fo more of the same because other teams will come and do the same thing.......simply because they can and we don't know how to deal with it 🙁

    Mattock was the one who didnít backtrack for Morris until it was too late, not the first time in the game either

    It should be strikers or midfielders who make them available on the edge of the area, not full backs.

    The daft thing is we may have the next Frecks in Wiles or Lyndsey even Crooks but if they are not told to get up to support the forruds we waint have. Crooks cant pass a ball but perhaps warne should be saying your job is to break play up and steam down the middle and getting into the box. He is a big enough unit to be able to do that. Just play to his strengths not his weaknesses.

    Maybe so but he was the only player there then run in instead of backtracking

    Stated before the season started we will finish around 16th. Poor signings coupled with supporters believing we had to get rid of four poor wingers. How poor would those 4 wingers be now. Warne is shocking in the transfer market and has weakened this team every time the window has been open. Alan Stubbs makes warne look like a novice with the players both have brought in an thatís some statement.

    The league is very forgiving in my opinion which translates to a riskier style of football paying dividends .

    You are far better losing and winning than collecting a succession of draws as Sunderland found to their cost last season and so far this season it seems .

    We played into Shrews bury,s hands today by allowing them to get 11 men behind the ball with ease.
    Because they are well organised and good at what they do we were always outnumbered in the last third.
    So unless we have players who are fabulous passers of the ball and others with excellent movement we are unlikely to break these teams down as we witnessed today.

    So if we don't have the quality to break them down we have to stop these teams getting 11 men behind the ball to even up the numbers in the last third.
    As others have said, to do this we have to move the ball a lot quicker when we win possession to stop these teams regrouping in numbers.
    We only need to go one up by doing this and then the game will open up naturally as they search for an equaliser.
    A few swift breakaways wouldn't go amiss either.

    I was led to believe we could do the bombing on at pace, swamping the opposition game but this hasn't happened.
    We need to start doing this otherwise it's going to be a frustrating season at home.

    Easy solution to our problems....over to you Paul.

    To be fair there would be a higher chance of Frecks keeping Vassell company rather than being on the pitch.

    Yes he did well today because we played into his hands!
    However, when we played Shrewsbury at Wembley Ryan William's came on as sub and ran the legs off him. Unfortunately we didn't have anyone today who could do that 🙁

    What we actually said is "where is a Frecks when you need one?" Generic rather than specific 😉
