All the loan players look poor.
Actually Downes is the only one who looks like a footballer tonight

Can anyone see what Thomas brings to the side that Dobra doesn’t ?

Its not been good this half, really flat. No flare, maybe thats the problem, I heard they have flares in training

He's been abysmal, as has most of them, Parrott, Harrop, Sears, just nothing there.

I was hoping Town would follow the Gillingham v Peterborough game on my tv ifollow channel, but on second thoughts maybe not, 44 mins and only one shot on target, and that’s Northampton’s. I think it will have to be a Champions League night. ☹️

I'm usually a glass half full kind of person but that was as bad as I ever seen us. The second half has to be better.

Downes doing ok. Kenlock ok going forward. Dozzell trying to create a chance. The other 8 are poor. And 5 of them aren’t even our players. What the f*ck are they doing here?

Out of the loan players.... Matheson looks the best by far.

I can imagine though that his youthful enthusiasm will be coached out of him.

f**king dismal.

Northampton have kept clean sheets in two of their last three away games so they’re no mugs at making it difficult for the opposition to score and we know how crap we are at scoring.

Definitely not Lucy, we can’t score and they don’t score, I think they’ve only scored one goal in their last 8 games. Has 0-0 written all over it.

Based on my recent predictions a goal is now almost certain, I just hope it ied in at the right end.

I went past the Ground on The Bus coming Home. Seeing the Lights on made me miss the place. Then thinking how awful we have been put a dampner on that.

Although we should have enough points on the board to avoid it, this really is relegation form.

I would send Matheson and Thomas back. Why pay wages to players who are worse than we have?
