I said weeks ago that the first few games after the break are the crucial ones. The cavalry should be back.

If Stefan Johansen over hits a simple free kick then you know the pressure is high and the confidence low

He and many others are seasoned pros training every day. Whatever the circumstances they should be able to put a decent cross in or be able to shoot on target once in while.

I couldn't get there today. What was the crowd reaction, especially at the end ?

My thinking was the same until today. It's as if the match ball is totally different to what they use in training.

Almost a complete passanger the last few games but I would not lay all the blame on his shoulders as he hardly gets a touch of the ball.

Those three points against Watford are even more precious now.

We are by nature a passive bunch and the reaction though disappointed was muted.

For me things are so bad that more crowd dissent is a must. Reasons:
Crap players,
Manager reverting to hoof-ball football.
Distant worry about the ownership, stewardship of the club.

Enough there I would have thought to get worked up about?

Lowe for me has been a constant passenger but I could say that for half a dozen of the current team,
For instance do I want to see Dozzell or Amos back in a hooped shirt? The answer is no!!

I thought Lowe was a class above on his debut. We really don’t get the ball to him enough especially in the attacking third.

Amos is a good player, genuine box to box and can score goals. He needs to play himself back in to form. Problem is he will be injured again before that happens which is the case with way too many of this squad.

Good to see you on here, Gareth. Great interviews by the way.

Looking at the Blackpool result today just shows how bad we are. I cannot see us surviving. There surely can't be three worse teams in this division.

Wigan must be thinking Xmas has come really early this year - what better game could they possibly wish for in their wildest, wildest dreams to kickstart their survival push than home to QPR.

You just know that Warnock is going to get the Udders out of the shite while we become entrenched in it.

There definitely are not. Almost certainly most of league one would shred our arses at this time.
