    Does that daft thing he does where he spins the ball out wide aimlessly while he has his back to goal in the centre circle count?

    Interview takeaway predictions...

    Fighting spirit
    Restricted them
    Tough local derby
    Adversity of players injured
    Players still gelling
    Tough start
    Officials apologising
    Usual shite.

    OK, we'll disagree on the injuries.

    I would argue having four players out who could be in the starting 11 does have an impact.

    Conversely, if we had Gilliead, Odour, Smith out instead of any three of the four you have named then there would be a stronger team.

    I'm not condoning the formation, tactics, pattern of play though as per my previous post.

    Laboured. Little entertainment. Soul destroying.
    Abysmal vs a poor team. Hughes won’t make Christmas.

    He's just said "sometimes the players need to take a risk"

    The irony.

    He never sets the team up to take a risk or gives his players license to take a risk.

    Agree to some extent but even with a fully fit squad, the set up, style of football and lack of creativity won’t change. This is the way Hughes wants us to play. That’s his prerogative as manager and It got us into the play offs last year but it’s terrible to watch, and we’re always looking like we’re one misplaced pass away from squandering it.

    We have to accept that with Hughes, this is the way it’s going to be or we try something different.

    If we stick, then at best, we may have an outside chance of sneaking it through the playoffs.

    If we change manger, anything goes. It could be brilliant, it could be a disaster. I’m usually one of the last to want a manager gone, but the way things are now, it’s a risk I’m increasingly willing to take.

    Same. Didn't stand for the goal.

    Was almost disappointed it went in.

    That was the bottom, right there, lowest of the low.

    Yes we have players out, but that felt hopeless today.

    This is Peter Jackson-era bad. Some of these players are non league standard.

    In any given week, any team in the league will have 4 players who 'could be in the starting 11' missing. You're reaching. Cook is a miss, 100%. Pattison, probably too. But even then, in any given week you could easily see Hughes starting 3 from 4 of Smallwood, McDonald, Walker, Gillead, with Pattison being on the bench. Chapman is as likely to be on the bench than start and Oliver had started about 5 games in his City career.

    This level of performance and result is not about unusual injury problems at all. Its a typical level of Hughes performance that doesn't have Cook bailing him out. It really is as simple as that. Anything else if just missing the real point.
