A couple of bright spots, Morsy looks quality albeit against u21s but he's constantly pointing, talking, organising those around him, some nice touches and passes etc, not mind-blowing but very good to see and a different planet to Evans.

Norwood has looked very sharp and dare I say it fit !! Jackson too tbh has done ok. Not impressed with Carroll so far, gave the ball away numerous times. Barry has made some nice runs from deep and was almost in a couple of times. Not all doom and gloom.

Morsy seems to have a bit of an attitude. Im expecting a red or two more over the season.

2 goals conceded again we could set a new record this season.

Actually quite concerned for the season

Can paint over and say its only the trophy which it is, but so far this season we have let in two goals at least per game I believe

I didn't see the game but could one argue we had alot more of the ball, created more chances but were let down by a GK error for a penalty and perhaps a weak defense? (semi understandable given it was Wolfie + a kid)? Clutching at straws..........

It's the defence that's concerning though

Oh Cook’s not worried. He’ll have no criticism for the players. He’ll say he feels sorry for the fans blah, blah, blah!

Are we ever gonna win a game ffs!

I hold my hands up and admit I was quite happy when PC was appointed.
However, his record since being in charge has quite frankly been appalling and I hope that the owners realise the seriousness of the current situation. It certainly can’t be allowed to continue much longer otherwise we could very well be getting out of this league this season but not the way we planned.

I am trying to be upbeat but it is now dwindling, we have to get a decent result soon and hoping it is against Lincoln.

I like PC and want him to succeed but if im honest, if there is not a improvement soon he is in a spot of bother.

COYB!

:roll: The countdown begins PC your on a 10 game judgement programme, the clock is ticking the fans are getting restless you've got 10 league games to improve the results, and losing to a junior West Ham side tonight aint helping, you mentioned about going home in your report on the Bolton game due to the fans calling for earlier substitutions, your not helping your cause at all, your going backwards in your so called strong squad selection tonight, what you need is a very good assistant to help you make correct decisions, someone like John McGreal, you've proved you haven't the ability to work on your own, so get John in to assist you sooner rather than later.

These results are (or are already) becoming indefensible.

Cook should have put out his best team. Getting a result against anyone at the moment is the most important thing. It’s stacking up. It doesn’t matter if a senior player gets an injury in a game like this because they can just as easily pick up an injury in training.

Morsy looked good and what we need, but he’ll pick up bookings throughout the season and get banned. Disappointed in Carroll - thought he gave the ball away too much. Norwood’s got a chance in the starting line up as he’s always hassling defences and looked sharp. We need that bit of niggle in the team along with Morsy. He might be worth a shot in defence as he was our best defender from set-pieces.
As for Holy. I don’t understand why Hladky or Walton wasn’t given a chance. How many more times can Holy be allowed to invent more f*ck-up’s?

Ash??? 10 game programme? Ten games from now? Starting at Lincoln? That doesnt make ONE OUNCE of any sense? So if the next three are defeats, (certainly not confident about Lincoln) and the club are 24th, then someone in the club will say,
“NO, not yet……. Still 7 to go!” 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

It could be a heavy 4-0 @ Sincil, i reckon next Monday could be significant if that happens.
