    Watt and Evans should have been hauled off at half-time, replaced by Songo`o and Sutton. Crankshaw would have least be looking and running in the right direction, replacing Gilliead. Is this job too "big" for Adams with expectancy as it is?

    Totally agree was absolute beggars belief that come the 80th minute these 3 were still on the pitch. Evans is just awful plain and simple. Watt was pretty much sat as a centre back most of the game and don’t get me started on Gilliead, continues his fine performance of 0 assists and 0 goals.

    Agree with that... The boos have started and they're only going to get louder.

    As for ROD he's sh!t.. and should have been shown the door before last season started.

    More like 10 - a shocking finisher.

    Maybe so but at least the intent is there in that he keeps getting in the correct positions and doesn't hide.

    Can we say that about the opposite flank?

    I’m slowly starting to get the same sinking feeling I do every season. Had high hopes for DA, but he’s just the same as the others. Tactics set in stone, no plan B, pointless substitutions, seems to hold a grudge against some players (Sutton, the youth), and baffling after match comments.

    Seems the majority of the fans feel the same way.

    Sparks now gone missing after his inflated pre season war cry.

    At least Rupp can have a nice Sunday afternoon drive after checking the attendance figures and seeing we didn’t lose.

    It would feel less bad if it felt like the club had a plan b let alone the manager

    If Adams leaves we're left with nothing again no continuity no Director of Football no expertise within the industry absolutely nothing

    I'd be more concerned if we weren't making them.

    Only a matter of time before cries of "you don't know what you're doing", to be followed shortly after by "we want Adams out".

    Life was ever thus at City.

    Because our ratio of hitting the target is woeful no one is denying that we have to work the keeper more.

    I got the feeling in the calibre of signings we were making. On the face of it- the player budget has seen a significant cut and the fact you gamble on who he obvious sees as key player with an injury record - Angol, the fact we could not add a number 10, and then hve bring in a striker who was not top of our wanted lists says a lot. At this moment it is difficult to see why we signed Lavery. We are informed about all these extra sponsors who are helping the club, the additional increase to ST and it seems the manager was left scrambling around to bring in decent players.
    We just have to keep our fingers crossed that Adams can squeeze better performances, something clicks and we kick on. The finishing is certainly an area for concern looking at the goal returns history of the squad members.

    Adams is deluded if he thinks that was a good performance, too many passengers out there today. Barrow, awful team, their midfield got mullered against Villa reserves and we made them look good. We are too SLOW in the centre and too cautious.

    What good is Cook on his own at home, maybe away I could see sense but teams will come to grind out results and we need to find a way past that. Barrow had the best chances players unmarked a few yards out, they could easily have won.

    I thought the "it's good to see O'Donnell dominating his box" when he had come and made an absolute hash of it and dropped the ball, was better tbh.

    Or lauding vernam as he sprayed another shot wide.

    Both good points, well made.

    Been saying this for a few years now, but the last time a manager has been here for more than a year was stuarts 2nd stint in 2018! Derek did not get Morecambe promoted his first season.

    he is already the 4th longest manager since 2018. If he’s here by Christmas he will be 3rd. Christ just give a manager time. He's got a proven track record of doing it elsewhere and need the benefit of the doubt.

    it was naff against barrow but it comes across as he doesn’t trust the players. Turnbull left recently.
    We all see how gilly has 0 end product. Laverly has played all of two minutes. Personally hes got 2 more windows. It also doesn't help rupp has stopped putting money in.

    I think we can say Sparks whipping up the anticipation levels was a mistake our fans are already expecting to dominate this division
