The Business

In a world of my own.
I know we don't score enough but I think if PB can sort the defence out we have a chance.

I am sorry but the defenders we have at the moment are not good enough with the exception of Coker. Virtually all the goals we have conceded are due to woeful defending. PB does not seem to know his best defence which culminated today in playing a right back at centre back.

Thompson is young and ok as back up but I am not a fan currently. Bolger I haven't seen have a good game for us, Prosser is a woeful distributor of the ball and panics every time he has the ball. I saw Mads at AFC Wimbledon in the LDV and he looked atrocious.

The reason we made the play off last year was largely down to the Egan and Sokilik partnership. I think Bob Shaw needs to get out quick and get us two dominant centre backs. Last year he found three (Kiernan also) and he needs to do the same. Most sides can play badly and score once as we proved today and if you can keep a clean sheet you gave yourself a chance.

The last two home goals have both come from poor marking and awful defending. For my mind if you sort the defence out you can build a decent side from there. Bentley is fine and Coker more than adequate but for my mind the jury is totally out on the rest and that includes fans favourite John White.
