Smyth has done more in 20 minutes than all bar Armstrong have achieved in 90 minutes.

Smyth would be first on my team sheet each week.
Why we can't start games with this kind of urgency and energy is beyond me.

We bossed this game. That's how it goes when we are struggling. Keep your heads up
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

Quite how Twatford won this game is beyond me. But there again we care more than our excuse for a team does. :evil:

We only have ourselves to blame for this loss. We only woke up when we went 2-0 down.
Much more urgency is needed from the first minute onwards.
We're nearing a situation that it doesn't matter if you lose by 4-0 or 2-1. We need to start throwing the kitchen sink around more. At least give it a go!

Those last 10 minutes were exhilarating. Reminded me of the good old days. Shout out to Armstrong for that Chest pump and Smyth.

If only Chair played like him instead of slowing the game down or taking too many touches.

I still think that we have eleven fellas in the Stanley Bowles Stand that could give a better account of themselves than this rabble.

Smyth is far and away the best player we have.

To put him on the bench whilst the rest of the dross run about aimlessly seriously questions the managers judgement.

I'd also just like to say: 'Gareth, it wasn't your fault'.
Wrong call Wegs.
We'd have let in 3 more goals under Ainsworth.

Manager ain't the problem, having a League 1 squad is!

I really don't want to criticise Marti but his non use of Smyth today was criminal, especially when Willock was putting in some useless pretence of a performance.

I agree that the manager isn't the problem. None of them were the problem, including Ainsworth. It's better under Marti but losing is losing. The squad is League One at best.

Everytime Smyth is in the team the energy gets ramped up. He makes things happen and should be in the starting 11 from now on.

Smyth had one of his best games today, but he's made 18 starts and 8 sub appearances in 27 league games with 1 assist and 2 goals to show for it. There's no magic missing ingredient in this squad.

This League 1 squad performed like a Sunday League team under Ainsworth. Not nice to lose but at least we had a chance of a point today and didn’t get turned over 4-0.
