Briefly, as all of Saturday's match have been minutely scrutinised and agonised over, with all the rights and wrongs and short comings of various players.

Yet what it comes down to at the end of the day is poor coaching and management. The continued failure to get to grips with our dire defensive attitude will cost Rovers and should cost those in charge their posts. Build a solid platform and spine, then add creativity. Conceding soft goals has been indicative of this regime, effectively two goals per match, square pegs or for that matter broken pegs, or not fit for purpose pegs, whilst continuing unabashed is madness.  This requires immediate attention to put right, as any new solutions won't turn this around overnight, the entire squad appear bereft of appreciating danger. 

Finally two quick comments...1) Darragh stop punting aimless balls out wide/out of play, actually look for a simple short pass to either Johnson, Downing, Travis. 2) What has Nyambe done so wrong to not be first pick at right back from this collection of players?

Downing should have up ended Purrington and taken the booking when he realised he wasn't going to get a proper tackle in.

That's not in his makeup Phil, He's not an aggressive player.

Watched the goals again. Walton should definitely have done better with the 2nd. Very, very soft one. 

We looked disorganised and the players unsure of their roles. Inexcusable for a team mostly made up of players who have played together many times before, with one of the longest serving managers in the division.

Seems like our business is done.

I wouldn't say 1 signing would be crazy. I think Sharpe means there won't be a flurry of activity, ins and outs.

We could do with getting some out on loan. Cant see how Samuel will figure and should go somewhere for 6 months. Butterworth perhaps too. 

Evans could be handy as a bench player and Davenport too but I think Smallwood should be offloaded if at all possible. We just have too many bodies in the middle now.

Let’s see. The window closes on the 8th, right? Might be able to do some more loans.

we might be in for a rough ride for the next few matches

Just wait until Darragh gets injured, what will we do then?

Shocking and unbelievable state of affairs.

Should be on a t shirt that or a bloody big banner on the Riverside that Tony can see.
