A rare opportunity to take in live action and the team is playing largely sh*t. Guess it's just as well don't get to see much regular play. Wish the commentary team would quit with "this wll be an upset" bullshit, all right they're a league below but playing well. If they win today will it really be that much of a shock, not to us at least.

Can see peoples issue with the defense, only now can you take in the inadequacies of that part of the team although got to believe we have names available in attack to get something from this with time remaining. Going to see this tie out naturally and while not easy viewing thus far it's a rare chance
you got to grab. Bottom line seems they want it more than us, motivation seems an issue, not sure McGreal is the right name to deliver on that front.

Paul Cook has totally destroyed this club.
Makes a change from Evans destroying it. Grow up.
My opinion. Doesnt require your blessing. Grow up.

Lol nice one Barrow GK…. Lovely bit of gamesmanship there . Taken the sting right out of our momentum ….. Town don’t possess a single shred of that

Definitely Niasla and Penny utter dross. Jackson and Norwood will be going anyway.

That’s what wholesale changes give you … it’ll probably happen again when the new man comes in ….

The problem is whilst we remain managerless this is likely to get worse not better. We have so many players running around like headless chickens including Sam Morsy who has just picked up his customary yellow card for a heavy challenge. I still think individually we have sufficient decent players to make a decent team, unfortunately they don’t play together line one.

I'd say we need some Max Verstappen kind of luck now if we're going to get anything out of this.

A (very) few decent results, but that apart what have we got? Very little! False dawns, big investments, squads changed just the same, dull, miserable experience season upon season! Is it too much to ask for a little consistency, a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel? Something to raise a smile! Any relief or reprieve from Evans selling up is (or has been) fast disappearing..

I have tickets for Wycombe & Lincoln at home, but you know what, if i could get a refund as we speak, i would. I have fallen out of love with this once fine club. PC's sacking has for me just turned us into another hiring/firing club and I don't like it one little bit! :cry:

As said in commentary, you wouldn’t believe Town were the League 1 side and Barrow League 2 and only just at that having only returned to the EFL from the National League in 2020.

Well, if this team / squad / club hadn’t reached rock bottom tonight , I sure as hell have. I’ve never been so embarrassed to call myself a Town fan as I do tonight .

Sad but true, Mark. Just another abject performance and one that even eclipses that awful cup game at Lincoln which we thought at the time was the lowest we could get - how wrong were we....!

I am beginning to think we will be lucky to get the likes of Neil Harris now - Rolf Harris may be up for it though...😱

f*ck me that was only Barrow’ 4th win in their last 15 games. At this rate we could be playing in The Conference in a couple of seasons.

I’m really worried about those guys pensions over in the US.

Couldn't agree more. First viewing of Town this season. Desperate need of quality manager to sort out a shambles. I agree there are more than enough quality in that team to get in the right direction.
Morsey looks quality player at that level but a bit of a banger
