Once again yesterday poor decisions cost us the match, we could all clearly see Bury getting back into the match(same as the Exeter game) so he makes a change to 451 at home! We all know we can't hold onto a one nil lead. We are no way as good at the back as last season when we had the the likes of Egan & sokolik. Also going back to the old Tilson days of playing players out of there natural positions like white & Leonard(I know he was brought to the club as a defender) but we miss his runs forward and was the best midfielder last season who actually did chip in a few goals.

I bet Brown made better decisions down the casino last night!

Up the Blues!

How many threads do we need having a rant? This is why a post match discussion thread would be a good idea, all this rubbish could be grouped together under one heading!

Why is it rubbish? Are you happy with Brown, his tactics, his decisions? I know I'm not as well as many many disgruntled fans. I very nearly walked out yesterday, and that's something I haven't come close to before. I am sick to death of Brown's excuses

I don't know what's rubbish about three very salient points made in the space of one short and succinct post. There's plenty of rubbish to be found on here, but that's not it.

By "rubbish", I meant all the criticism and negativity. I'm sure most of those criticising were also criticising Sturrock when things went wrong for a while, and also Tilson when things went badly. We're a L2 side and maybe if people can't tolerate poor results, they ought to go and watch Chelsea! (That's not a dig at the OP)

Post match analysis should be grouped together, not have umpteen threads started.

Why is it rubbish ! This poster is perfectly entitled to express their views. Hypocritical of you to have backed the other thread about respect towards others then you come out all guns blazing at this poster for purely expressing their views.

I have and you still state that negativity is "rubbish". As supporters we hardly have anything positive to say at the moment. I stand by my view that your original response was aggressive and uncalled for hence why so many look but don't post on here.

Donot agree OAA, they donot post because twenty topics appear for the same story

The mods do a fair job, but keep repeating the same story under a different title is becoming annoying and DWB constant sniping at OBL posts is annoying and aggressive or maybe close to stalking:winking:

We only had discussions the other day on here about threads and in particular, post match threads. How many different threads have been started all around post match analysis and thoughts? It was not meant to be aggressive in the slightest, more weariness at the same ideas being repeated in different guises!

Although, having said, that I do find negativity and pessimism very trying. We are all different, and my outlook is more optimistic and yes, "rose tinted", truth be told.

What positivity can you get from 5 games without a win, negative tactics and the inability to capitalise on a 1-0 lead?

I get positivity from the fact that Coker is well on the road to recovery and that Timlin continues to impress following his long lay off. I totally get why everyone is fed up, but the whole doom and gloom and ranting thing becomes very tiresome, especially when you get several very similar threads appearing.

I agree with OBL. I think the Brown holiday, and should he stay should he go threads, should have been put together.

I'm considering not going to the next game for the first time since the Martin/little days. People moaned about Sturrocks style but at least we scored goals, at the moment I'm bored stupid. 14 goals in 15 games says it all, playing a passing game is ok if it works but it must be fast paced, anyone can pass slowly from side to side but it's as easily defended against as constant long hoofs.
