    How the hell are players like Lavery and Robinson getting injured without even playing. Both out for Crawley game, not that they will be missed

    The more I think back to his interview when Robinson was signed and how little he’s featured, the more I think Adams didn’t want him at all and I think it’s a reason Turnbull has gone, pure conjecture but could be something in it. Also strange how Sparks phoned DMac asking if they had any striker for loan, doesn’t scream to me Adams was calling the shots on who comes in. It really wouldn’t surprise me if it kicked off behind the scenes and I think Adams will be taking control from now on. He left a league 1 club to come here and his tone doesn’t strike me as happy atm, Sparks will most likely tow the line with him and try give him what he wants. But that will take budget.

    It’s a tin pot trophy and only reiterates how poor a squad we have. Adams will, I assume take the same route as Parky. Spend what you have on a decent squad of 18 and forget about anything after that. The youngsters are a long way away from being close to an average league 2 side. Don’t beat yourselves up about the result.

    They haven’t even been given a chance!! Cook who is seen as some league 2 Lukaku hasn’t scored in over 400 minutes! At that rate he wouldn’t be missed either.

    Not sure where we go from here. After a bright start ,everything is falling apart rapidly.
    Canavan , Eisa, Angol injured , Lavery and Robinson also possible injuries, Although how these players that are not involved other than a couple of minutes here and there are meant to get fit or form partnerships is beyond me with the managers tactics.
    Gillead and Evans total waste of wages, Songo ? Foulds , keiheller not good enough for league football.
    Adams has a lot of work to do , but also needs to take a good hard look at his own approach.

    Just when I thought you talked some sense you come out with this codswallop and have the cheek to pull me about having a bit of banter with regards Laverty :sob::sob::sob::sob:

    Did these discussions not take place before he took the job or before we appointed him? He was allegedly lined up for a long time?
    It’s naive on both sides it it wasn’t

    They’re training the same schedule as Morecambe did, didn’t do them any harm. Maybe it’s shocking recruitment, recruiting players that rarely play or are injury prone what do you expect to happen?

    I’d accept that if we looked good in the league. No matter what side we put out we don’t look like winning

    Absolutely
    They haven't been given a chance an extra man in the box to take away one of the two men marking Cook
    Can only be a good thing irrespective of how good they are/aren't

    But it is something he's done at previous clubs according to Songo, Ross County, Plymouth Argyle or Morecome and it didn't seem to do those teams any harm, all promoted under Adams ?.

    Who knows that’s why I questioned earlier on had Sparks sold him a pup with good talk? We can only speculate but the fact he isn’t happy or doesn’t seem to be and back room changes are happening would suggest to me that it’s not what he thought he’d signed up for.

    I'm just glad we didn't take any on loan. I'd much rather have Theo.

    With all those chances that Gilliead is providing you'd think he'd be on double figures by now. Oh wait lol
