    We need to be pushing for three points at home from the off. Just can not see us doing that with 433

    Sack him? No. Dont be silly.

    But he needs to stop pissing about with his ego and keep it simple.

    Bowyer must not repeat that drivel, that must be a line in the sand.

    If we lose attacking teams then fine, but that was atrocious.

    I was massively against this before today, but the team selection, tactics etc have changed my mind. He's completely stupid if he thinks we we're ever getting anything from this game playing 4-3-3 with a key striker out wide who's 35+ years old, Gibson who isn't good enough currently and Akpan and Devine in midfield doesn't help either.

    Says it all when we have to throw Richards-Everton up top in hope of a goal. Pathetic from Bowyer.

    He is running out of chances, sack no, but needs to be turning vp into a fortress not a cess pit of dross.

    Baffling how akpan has gone from out of the squad at start of season to a starter again.

    And shoehorned in after successive wins.

    Pathetic from Bowyer.

    I'd settle for him turning into a place where we go out to attack. If we lose a couple in the process, so be it. We're at home. Bloody act like it.

    I wouldn’t say sack him, but, like a few, when I say starting XI I couldn’t believe the team he picked. Gibson & Akpan? Wood been delivering great crosses as left winger. Just didn’t get it.

    Most managers are former players and footballers are notoriously dim, in the conventional sense. They have an athletic intelligence that enables them to be professionals but often little else. Bill Shankly once said to one of his players,' The trouble with you, sonny, is that all your brains are in your head.' When they become managers, the instinct they had on the pitch is not enough. A different kind of intelligence is required, and it is often the case, especially with some of our greatest players, that they simply don't have it. Picking the same system today that had failed so clearly against Cambridge and Grimsby is an example of this. Today we played completely into the opposition's hands and deserved what we got. The referee was atrocious but he wasn't the issue. Our manager was.

    You got to laugh at the over reaction on here tonight.

    We hit the post-Devitt
    Donaldsons shot hits Vaughan on the line.
    Vaughans overhead kick misses by inches.
    Dodgy offside decision to disallow the goal

    We could easily have won that game 3-0 and been top.

    And all that DESPITE the referee.

    FGR play like that all the time and that's why they have very few fans.
