    Which means that this side is simply not good enough to compete in division 1

    He literally threw himself at the ball. He was lucky his head connected first, because he had no idea what he was doing and it could easily have been a penalty. He reminds me of those players at school, who had no skill or idea how to play football, but were in the team because they were bigger than everyone else and threw themselves around.

    Northants so much better than us on so many levels. I’m enjoying watching the interplay between the midfield and attack. Wish we had something that resembles anything like it.

    Jamie Raynor just quoted 'City have fallen short of what we expect of them'.

    This is identical to most of our home performances this season. Excellent away, awful at home. We seem unwilling or unable to adapt though.

    Eisa and Gillead need hooking.

    He's had an awful half, along with a few others. Really need to give East a shot.

    Poor from us, 2 poor goals given away too, and quite surprised it isn’t 3-0.

    subs needed and with a bit of luck we might be able to salvage a point…

    We can be as critical as we like, we’ve been poor. However as @Faithful Bantam@Faithful Bantam says, a small gap in the table but a gigantic one between the teams based on this showing.

    Northampton look leagues ahead of us. Doing the basics well together with the clever and decisive moments which is putting them in the position they’re in at HT.

    Chapman should have done better at the start but outside of that Northampton should have definitely had two more.

    Outside of Chapman and Banks i just don’t see any threat. It’s another one of those games where Cook shows his limits (I’m not blaming him BTW) and we don’t have a suitable replacement for him to offer anything more IMO.

    As it stands, don’t see how we get back into this but forever hopeful.

    In January we need to improve on Platt, a new CM for sure and hopefully, Walker is the same player we've seen before his injury or we may also need a new CAM

    They have mobile Midfield players with a bit of pace who run beyond their strikers.
    It’s not rocket science.

    Hughes should spend half time trying to convince them they’re playing away.

    I disagree - they have looked more incisive and clinical since scoring .

    We score first and it would have been different. They weren't incisive until they scored. We had the better chances initially.

    The rot started with Chapmans first 10 minute miss
    Then Platt thought he could pass the ball , at least 5 misplaced long range passes ..were poor
    Smallwoods error
    Cook isolated
    Eisa , sorry , poor pace, lousy anticipation, get Wright on

    They are a very good , fluid side and 4-3-3 is killing us.
    It’s like playing against 6 midfielders or 6 forwards in different phases of play.

    Next goal will be crucial. Their only weakness seems to be right back.

    They take quick free kick are quick to interplay between midfield and attack.

    We are the opposite slow pondering passes in defence or aimless hoof from platt upfront.

    Embarrasing gulf in class between the teams.

    Actually thought we played well until Smallwood coughed up the ball for their first. Second goal was shell shock. Cue crowd getting on the players backs. It doesn’t help. They played better than several games at home this season. Northampton took their chances still time to get something after they missed that 1 on 1.
    Calling out as clueless? Look in the mirror.

    This formation doesn't work at home. Never has really.

    Chapman should have squared that ball instead of going for glory.

    Kiwomya on commentary suprised Chapman missed the target.

    Don't think many fans suprised by miss. Chapmans shooting is absolute garbage nearly everytime
