One thing for sure the players ought to forget about this confidence thing, we are fighting for out league 1 survival not matter what Robbie says and I can see us go down while the pub team stays up if this continues.


Not easy to forget about this “confidence thing”. They are human beings. You can’t just turn confidence on and off.


It's hard for most players to display confidence when they are being beaten on a regular basis. Confidence is something that goes hand in hand with success.

Yes, exactly. When you’re losing games, you lose confidence. When you lose confidence, you’re more likely to play badly and lose games. It’s a difficult spiral.

I’d never be cross with a player who is short of confidence.

One thing I’m sure of - booing him won’t make him more confident.

Hence we need to recruit some experience and creativity in the window. Tough ask.

Tough ask indeed. Who’s likely to be available in January?

Exactly and when you are losing it's a vicious circle. The players need to stop considering egos and now battle for points come what may.

It's amazing how often we play teams on a lower budget than us in league 1 and say, "blimey, how did they manage to get him"? I suppose a lot of it comes back to our shortfallings in the recruitment department.
