Results didn't go too badly against us but we really need to beat Derby.

I do think now is the time to be looking at starting Roberts and maybe even Whatmore as daft as that sounds. Actual creative players playing on the wing willing to try things.

We are weaker than last season and we avoided relegation by the skin of our teeth.

we have lost 4-5 senior professionals, our captain and our main centre back.

it is a miracle we are in the top half of the table and still in touch with the pack.

It's not a miracle.

It is just that we have a manager that knows what they are doing.

How many of these senior professionals would you welcome back into the first team? I'd suggest none of them.

So basically we are in a similar situation just far more organised.

We still need to be able to score. No goals equals very few points on the board across the season.

I genuinely come in peace, but Jeez, you’re second line is the sort of line that really winds me up. It is not about anyone doubting or hating ffs, why would you say that? Suggesting that is unnecessary. Real fans talk about the good, the bad and the ugly in a game, from their personal perspective. We all notice different things. Being a fan is not just about praising the good. We live in 2020 UK not 1940’s Germany. If something appears poor or wrong, call it out, thats what these boards are for, reasoned opinion and debate.

I am sure you mean well and want to gee up people Boroproud 👍 but do you think Warnock only focuses on the positive down at Rockliffe? I hope not, I hope he sits down and focuses on the negative too, to identify improvements and to build on the positives, of which there are many too. I am sure Gibson does both in his discussions with friends and his manager too. Lets not cause rifts where there are few to none.

I like it when people say how they see things and offer their thoughts, even if people don’t always agree.

I would hope Warnock concentrates on the negatives, without ignoring the positives. I can see the defence improving, it's the best in the division. But I see no signs at all the attack is improving. Shots are either scuffed wide or belted into orbit. Crosses are overhit or cut out by the first defender.

These are basic skills for footballers. I don't know how much they practice them, but it would seem not at all. If you hire a chef, it's reasonable to expect that chef could make egg and chips. It seems that's not the case.

Well put 🤙 . It is driving me mad when posters are saying “ away it’s not too bad and better than it was “ That’s not good enough !

A chef can only cook egg and chips if they have the ingredients to start with 😉

Well I for one am happy at our start. It is a tough league and we are holding our own more than adequately. True that there is a lack of goals and I am as p1ssed off as the next person over it considering the potent (on Paper) strike force we have. So we need to build up our defence and try not to lose. This has been working. The two games that we have lost have both been very close to ex Premiership teams. I can only see light at the end of the tunnel. Onward and upward. UTMB

I agree . He’s a world class chef in a world class kitchen and a keen menu . I think our chef needs to go to Aldi and bu**er M&S off 🖕

Well said Boroproud. I wonder why some choose to take your straightforward comments apart with unnecessary analyses.

We have played 5 out of the top 6 and we are only half way through the fixtures - which is a bit of a positive, when analysing what we have done this season i.e we have had a tougher forst 12 games than probably anyone else in the division.

This squad is over performing its as simple as that

I think that is harsh. I would accept that the squad is performing to the best of its collective ability, thanks to a collective effort from our manager down through the coaches and the playing staff. It is clearly lacking component parts though and not good enough for a top 6 finish. That is in no way the current managers fault. His hands are tied by the woeful decisions of others and their subsequent effects...... post May 2016 leading up to his appointment.
