Cjay wrote:But do you believe Berardi, O'Kane, Phillips, Roofe, Cooper 5 of our most used players would get in there starting line ups?

Or any of the 9 teams above us.

I dont

We have a mid table squad.
Yes I do think they would get in their starting line ups - to be honest, football is crazy, bamba is starting for cardiff and they're above us despite him being abysmal at the end her

and I think saiz, jansson, forshaw, hernandez would all be key players for them

personally don't think it's the lack of quality in the squad. we're short at centre back and upfront but the quality in the squad is good enough for the play offs for me. TC isn't getting the best out of them unfortunately imo

Think we need a tougher manager, someone who can kick their butts.
We need a manager proven at this level as I firmly believe this is the hardest league to get out of.

That display was shocking. We seem to be a team devoid of ideas, no plan B (did we even have a plan A?) our manager appears to be clueless, he's not inspiring the players..... Something has to change, and fast. For everyone mentioning The Don or Fergie as examples of managers needing time, I really don't think TC is of their calibre. :bear:

Not been back long, just settling down with a cuppa whilst having a read of what you lads & lassies think of yet another fiasco !

Absolute spineless performance

Our soft-bellied lot were bullied off the park by Warnock's cynical mob

This can't continue.....something has to give :oops:

Only player to come out of that shambles with any credit

Luckily we signed a cb . . . . . .

Whatever happens to TC I agree that Orta aughter go - another failed experiment, not necessarily the system but certainly the man.

Mate I'm twice your size, I'd knock you off any ball with ease. I don't think Roofe and Alioski get enough protection from the refs..Roofe should have had 10 FK's today. Not sure what Lassoga' excuse is

Jesussssss. Chill out everyone. Yes we are in a dire spell but that is football. Personally some of my favourite performances have been this season under TC (not too long ago). We have our best player for the last 15 years in Saiz and we are building. Does anyone stop to think that other fans say the same s**t when we beat them. We arent anything special at the moment and form will come and go but we need to stop putting added pressure on the team asking for sackings and booing the players. Ive been ashamed of our fans at times this season

I think the players are not the problem as a new manager will show
I'll answer that one for Cjay

THe question I ask myself is with so many injuries and suspensions
and with so many first team regulars missing how will it be possible
for Thomas Christensen to even field a team that is competitive.
For the next four or five games every selection he makes will be another
nail in his coffin.

If you brought in the best manager in the world I fear that given the
circumstances he could not cobble together a team that could win.
That is the sad reality. I think everybody is CRESTfallen.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

We haven't won a game since Boxing Day!! ie 26 December. It is now 3 February... so that's 6 league games and a FA cup game that we have lost. Sorry but that is not good enough. I'm not ashamed of our long suffering fans, i'm ashamed at our players taking their wages and not producing the goods!! :bear:

Hope the in charge people are capable of analyysing where and why things did`t worl in our favour this time round.
But still feel more optimistiic than the last x years....as Long as we don`t get relegated.
Dropped a couple of thousand today, will be down to 26k attendances if our form doesn't pick up soon.

30,534 there today. I reckon only 10,000 remained in the ground with five minutes to go
