    How many teams due you think will go to Mansfield this season and win?
    Very few, I'd say. Of course a point would be a decent result.

    I can tell you the total number of points their previous 3 visitors amassed combined.

    Zero.

    We have tailed off terribly.

    It was very even until we started making subs and now we have no threat at all.

    Hughes wants time for the players to get used to the system but by the time they do we'll have had 12 games and be midtable and 12 points behind third place.

    We're somehow managing to score less goals than last season which was far and away our biggest weakness last season!!

    All these changes just create chaos. You shouldn't be changing your defenders unless they're injured.

    Turgid? I seriously don't know what game you're watching. It's been competitive the whole game and end to end for the last ten minutes.

    First team to take a point at Mansfield if it stays like this.

    We are shocking. How did we bring in so many attacking players but still play 6 defenders? Absolutely fed up of this shite

    Are you kidding me? The negative from this game, is that we should be winning it. Hughes remit for last season was promotion. Due to that failing, the remit this season is the same, but this time no excuses. Do you think Man City fans think a draw away from home is “a good point”? If we want to go up, we want to win every game. It’s way too early to mark a draw down as “a good point”. By that way of thinking, do you roll over if we lose and say “well, they are one of the top teams in the division”? This transfer window has been a shambles - look at the team we’ve put out today. Look at the bench. You’re clueless, MH is clueless, Sparks is clueless and Rupp has always been clueless. And there in is the problem. There’s not a single game plan among anyone.

    Good away point. Anyone who says otherwise is deluded IMHO.

    Another streak ended.

    After ending Crewe's unbeaten streak, we've now wrecked Mansfield's 100 % home run.

    Wanted us to sneak it, but not a bad result at all.

    Contrast that to some of the other results the 'big' teams got today, and it's not bad at all.

    Having so many away games at the start of the season was a mini-nightmare.

    Time to make home advantage count.

    We won last season and the season before.
    I will take today as we don't have any physical presence up front, but that's Hughes issue to deal with.

    The Mansfield commentators are saying a draw was a fair result.

    You're very, very easily pleased. Good point, awful to watch. Hughesball is up/down there with Bowyerball.
