    1-1, who'd a thunk it, eh?

    All those going three and four goals on the prediction thread :joy::joy: We might score three or four goals in a month but not in a match!

    Injuries etc. We really don't have many injuries. The dye is cast, Hughes is a fraud.

    That's a bit unfair. We do have injuries to some big players but what is poor is the inability of the manager to get a formation and tactics that works well for the players available and gives us opportunities to score goals and win.

    Big test on Rupp and Sparks now.
    Sadly it feels the majority has swung anti-Hughes now and it’s looking really, really bleak.

    Walkers goal may well have saved Hughes for a week but that result and performance has all but confirmed for me we may well need to change the management soon. Cook and Pattison are a huge miss, but two players should not make or break your season.

    Dreadful, didn’t even have the motivation to celebrate a last minute equaliser.

    I think there is more to the Cook situation than just an injury. He’s not the type of guy to keep his opinions to himself and I wouldn’t rule out some form of fall out with Hughes

    Last January when cook didn't start a match, was very strange. Rumours of cook was going to leave in that window.

    He's too arrogant to do that I'm afraid.

    Well once again Hughes gets a late get out of jail free card courtesy of Walker, this can't continue.

    It's really not unfair. Our injury situation is normal - its what you'd expect to find at any club really. We have Cook out, who's a key player. And Pattison, who started well but its far too early to assume he'll be key. That's it really. Oliver has been out yonks and never been a feature, Chapman out too but also someone who's in and out of the side. Its just excuses and a facade. We're struggling because Hughes has nothing and without Cook doing wonders on his own, it show's how limited we are. But the late equalisers and notions of 'injury problems', coupled with Sparks (in my opinion) being super reluctant and lacking in the cojones to sack a name like Hughes until he literally has no other option, will keep things as they are for a while yet. But its wasted time, and this will be another wasted season. Bottom half at best.

    There were a few around us and they are very conservatory usually but enough is enough.
